I am a Bosch WD and in Bosch Advantage they show the injectors and HPFP but both are out of stock. What do you think about components like the DPF, HP fuel lines, etc? I don't specialize in diesel or euro so I am sure you have much better connections that I do in that aspect.
We're not worried in the least about parts availability in the aftermarket moving forward. There are lots and lots of these cars and engines in use worldwide, and we've been sourcing many products not distributed in the US direct from Europe for several years. I don't see any reason to become dependent on dealers for anything other than body and trim pieces, and not even some of those.

If you're a Bosch WD then you know their supply chain is broken. Has been for some time. Don't look to Bosch as representative of parts availability. If everyone was like them we'd all be walking. (Rant over).

Hahaha tell me about, you can find me crying over my empty shelves where the LB7 injectors go.

Well unfortunately I already have to put my warranty status to the test! My DEF injector line is leaking. I think they messed it up a couple days ago when they did phase 2 because it has only leaked a little bit.

That should be covered, I think. Problems arise when turbos go, engine or drivetrain components fail.


If your radio goes on the fritz, VWOA will not argue that the tune did that.

Yeah, that is what I am thinking as well. If they deny this because of the tune then I can pretty much assume that they are going to likely deny anything on this car.

Unfortunately we have diesel emissions where I live. If it comes down to it I will just have to register it to my grand parents house or something without diesel emissions and take it all off!

My dealer said that when it was there last week for phase 2 it had a leak and the tech replaced the seal in the line and what was still there was residual from the previous repair. I am not convinced, but they claim it isn't leaking anymore. But at the same time it was only a little bit and it didn't seem to be increasing in "snowball" size. I guess I will just keep an eye on it.


They didn't mention the tune at all.
