Default Coming home - 2 new to us TDI's!

After a 2 year hiatus without having a TDI in our driveway, we just bought 2! Picked up a 15 Passat TDI SE 6M (38K) and a 14 JSW TDI 6M (28K) with sunroof and nav from a dealer in WI. Both are CPO units.
We strayed from VW for a bit and started shopping, that's when we realized we needed to come back to what we know and LOVE!!! A stick shift VW diesel!!!
This forum is one of the main reasons we kept our last TDI for 13 years and 250,000 miles. The help and insight the members here provide are unlike any other forums I have been on. Thank you!

Pictures!

What did you drive while you strayed, and what were your comparisons?

Miles, I'm sure that you'll be pleased with your JSW. I also have a 2014 with the 6 sp manual and love it. I've added a Malone 2.0 tune and even after the VW "fix" I still get around 40 MPG with aggressive driving up here in the foothills (mostly two lane twisty roads). We recently went on a group motorcycle ride up to Idaho and since we had a few Harley Davidsons in the group I asked my wife to follow us in my JSW with my trailer, just in case. We were riding fairly hard, so my wife had to be pretty aggressive to stay up with us. She loved it! She couldn't stop talking about how much fun it was, especially in the mountains where she could play Ricky Racer with the transmission.
Again I'll say that you will love your JSW and have many hours of fun driving.

Welcome back! I also just came back to the TDI family. Only have had my car a couple of days now, but I everytime I've driven it, it's put a smile on my face.
