The "I'm sorry" credit card bought me a new set of summers last year for my OEM alloys. I have a 16" set of plasti dipped winter alloys with a set of winters that have another year on them.

So off I went to kijiji and found a set of rusty 15" steelies with worn winters on them. That's what I'm taking it back with. Everything else is staying with me for my 2015 they have on hold for me.

Hopefully it doesn't matter what you turn it in with, as I might be best to keep my snow tires (as they have lots of life left) either on the current rims, or swap them to the ones the summer tires are on (original alloy wheels).
I'm really close to the 90k maintenance, but I think at this point, even if I go over a bit it won't be a big deal, as I think that's primarily to keep any warranty valid, right? There's no point in spending $600+ anymore.
Good question, ours just ticked over 90k km this week and is overdue for maintenance. The only thing I see in the settlement is having to drive into the dealer's lot under its own power. The big fear would be an HPFP failure but the warranty on that is only good till 80k.

Right now I'm waiting to see how long the process will take. If it's more than a few weeks before we get our replacement wagon, I may do just an oil and filter change to be safe.

Yea, that's the way I'm reading it too. Tires/rims are something that people regularly change, so I doubt they'd complain about not having the OEMs. And, if people can drive in a highly damaged one... our nearly flawless one should be worth a lot more unless they are all just going to the crusher (in which case they shouldn't care about rims).

I'm hoping to have a replacement within the next week or two. We'd have had one already, but a couple of the deals fell through. We're fortunate enough to have enough in savings to buy before having to wait for the check (and then the check can replenish those funds). I'm planning on just parking it once we get the replacement.

I don't believe the TDI was an option on the Q3 here.

Many of the posts I've been seeing on the FaceBook page have people quoting prices that I think are fair then they say plus the sorry money which I'm thinking is way more than what I have been quoted on the US site. This leads me to believe that the price given by the Canadian estimator are both 2015 CBB plus sorry money combined.

don't forget to add the exchange rate as we will be compensated in US $$$

Actually i was referring to the above poster
Airbus320 and i who own TDI s that were originally registered in the U.S. and subsequently imported to Canada. recently we found out that our vehicles would be covered by the U.S. settlements. which means U.S. dollars.

Oh rub it in
I am just so jealous now....
I have been reading how everyone plans on droppin less than perfect cars off, steel rims etc and I guess we will be posting some custom rubber mats up for sale soon.
Our car is mint and because of the hidden HPFP problem we will be so happy to part ways with VW...
Glad you guys are getting covered
