I pondered the same thing, been seeing a few b8s pop up with wrecked engines.

I would love to have a b7 wagon. I'm currently putting aBRM in one. Do you have a link to your build?

You pretty much will have to get an entire B8 tdi to get everything to work correctly.

the big problem with the b8 is that there's no manual wagon - the manuals are only sedans...that's the biggest drawback of that generation for me

if you want a manual wagon then the bill gets big and at that point I'd do a q5 - same work involved

if you're ok with a manual sedan then keep your eyes open for a blown motor b8, which come out all the time (some with ridiculously low mileage), get yourself a donor CR engine, and start sourcing engine mounts, harness, ECU and perhaps accessory bracket etc. from the German ebay...
