I'm thinking similar thoughts. I have a '12 Tdi Premium with nearly 100k miles on it. I am tempted to turn it in and walk out the door with a' 15 SEL Tdi with <20k miles on it. Manual would be a must. For the price, I haven't found anything I like as much as my Jetta. Pros and Cons for keeping the '12 VS trading in for a' 15?

I am headed to CO this weekend to buy a used '12 tdi manual for $7500. pretty clean. Post Factory corrections. 122K. Had a 2000 Passat GLX? Loved it, but wife messed it up.

What worries should I have or look for on the 2012?

We just completed the buyback. A change in working circumstances means there is no longer a need to daily commute, so a 2018 Golf R in Oryx White Pearl now sits it the garage. I will no longer will be stuck behind the edible arrangements van, unable to pass because I'm already foot to the floor, while he's accelerating determined for me not to get in front lol.

Just got the full emissions fix done. The car did have the malone stage 2, so that's fully gone, looking to put it back soon.

I've notice while driving highway speeds, the exhaust gas temperatures are around 450F then it will spike up to 700-800F for about 30-45 seconds then drop back down to the 400F range. It kept doing this every 10-15 minutes.

The other issue I have noticed is that the car will randomly not "crank" over, I have to hold down the push to start. Looking to have the dealership take a look. No CEL or codes.
