Hey Horsieclatter and welcome aboard. I'm not far away in League City. Congratulations on your new car. PM me if you need any local VW information. I'll help in whatever way I can.

Best Regards,

Uberdiesel.

Good Evening! I'm in Beaumont and just put a deposit on an 04 Navy Wagon 5spd. It's in Orlando, but I should have it w/in the next few weeks. I'm definitely down for some GTG's!

We just bought a new 2006 TDI Jetta and live in Katy. Love this car. My wife drives it back and forth to work in Sugarland. I drive my 7.3 PSD Excursion. Now if my son had a diesel, we would be total diesel.

Just bought a 2003 Jetta TDI to replace my '98, which will be up for sale soon.

Figured I'd post in here that I have vag-com if anyone needs help with codes, and will be offering timing belt, wheel bearing, and intake manifold swap work in the near future.

New member here. Live in the Heights area and have a pretty good mechanic on the near NW side. He was so impressed with my 96 Passat TDI that he bought a Jetta TDI for his daughter. Sorry can't think of the name of the shop right now as I haven't had it in for a long time. He doesn't have a Vag-ostics machine however. Will post it up later.

Pretty hard to trouble shoot and repair some things without VagCom or some such. If I was looking for a mechanic for mine, they wouldn't have a chance of working on my car without having this tool or access to one and the knowledge of how to use it. I am lucky though in that runonbeer and anut are the local gurus here, and would be my first choice over anyone else.

Glad to know there other committed TDI ers out there who are really into these fine automobiles. I would be interested in a G2G to exchange ideas and opinions. Jim

Default Another TDI in the Woodlands

One more TDi owner here. I'm in The Woodlands. I have an 05 Passat TDI. Love the car and would also be interested in a gtg in the area and getting the TDI chipped. Maybe we can get enough interest to get Jeff at Rocketchip to attend. I believe he told the Seguin GTG he needed 10 committments to make it worth his while. Anyone interested?

Hi,

I'm visiting Austin this weekend and might be interested in bringing my tools if there is a gtg nearby.

Welcome! Do a lot of reading in the A5 forum. Lots of info on your model car. Check out some of the online vendors sites here as well. Come to the get together (GTG) in November. Find a guru near you just in case. My car is great so far. Hope you have one of the good ones! Lots to learn here.
