Thanks for the reply. In the Jetta you can install it in a way that is hidden in the trunk but in the Golf it sticks out. Apparently there is a way to install it in the Jetta so it does not show.

Yes. In the Jetta wagon there is space in the spare wheel storage area. Do you have any room behind your wheel wells or rear of your spare tire area? There must be a couple of threads on the forum about Golf Phatnoise installations. Hope you find your answers.

Apparently some Golf owners have been installing it in the spare tire area:

Hello everyone, just joined the TDI club with my new 06 Jetta w/DSG. Curious if anyone has found a local retailer in Houston that sells the 505.01 oil? A friend has TDI and goes to Momentum VW on 290 for oil changes, but I'm more of a "if you want it done right, do it yourself" kinda guy.

This oil is available at any of the local VW dealerships or one of the vendors often mentioned on this forum (www.worldimpex.com, www.tdiparts.com, etc.). On line you can also buy "filter kits" that make the 10,000 maintenance interval less expensive. Enjoy your new car!

I dont know how I could miss this thread so many times, but I live in Spring, Texas...about 45 minutes north of Downtown. I moved here from Vancouver WA in August.

I would love to get to meet other Houston TDI owners, and maybe we could meet up at a centralized point on the 2nd of December and all drive together to the GTG in Seguin.

I drive a Gecko Green TDI Package 2 DSG. LOVE it!

2000 Jetta TDI here on the west side of Houston. I don't have a Vag-Com but I can get my hands on one just about any time I need to. Nice thing I have learned about Houston is that most of the Shell stations carry Premium Diesel. With that and using Schaeffers Diesel Treat I have been getting 45-50mpg.
