...has anybody recommendations for sourcing used parts preferably locally in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area?

www.car-part.com

has anybody recommendations for a TDI guru, in the event I am unable to wrench on it myself?

TDIClub member greengeeker is in Cambridge, north of Minneapolis

has anybody an opinion on the quality of the AVH code engine?

Your car has an ALH, not an AVH. It is one of the most desirable/reliable TDI engines out there...

What generation are you looking for? If it's Mk7, you can always try the online places like CarMax / TrueCar - a couple guys over on the Mk7 sub-forum have found cars there.

Keep your eyes on the "TDIs For Sale" forum here, too; they do show up occasionally.

Thanks, I've been watching cargurus and cars.com .... I'd be open to something in the GSW or A3 wagen ....

Thanks for the suggestions!

Keep in mind the A3 hatchback is basically a VW Golf. So, cargo/size-wise, it's going to be smaller with less capacity than the GSW - A3 pretty much the same capacity as the Golf Golf.

We own both, and previously owned a Mk7 Golf, too. If you looking for a vehicle and are eyeing the wagon for its size / gear-hauling capability, I think you'll be disappointed with the A3.

THANK YOU for the comments.. You are correct about the A3.. We travel a bit down to Florida (from Atlanta) pretty often. Sometimes, with a bunch of Scuba gear so... We would need the extra room of the GSW...

Darn, I've always wanted an Audi... Oh well.... Maybe next time..

Is the definition of old timers over 20 years or are 16 years good enough?
