Do you have a std commute that has been the bulk of the miles or trips or ??

I put around 200k on my 99.5 before I sold it and my "new" brm is about to turn 300k. On the brm only about 20k of those are mine;-)

Long trips, my 1 mile commute doesn't help much.

I see that IBW is at 357K

Should get a couple of thousand this weekend.

Default Turbo out

Posting for a friend to see if anyone recommends someone to replace turbo in their TDI. She lives in Andover and was just quoted $3300.

I will try to get Year details in a bit.

It is an 09 Jetta.

Anyone local with the bearing tool willing to help me replace a front bearing on my b4v?

I hope to confirm it's the bearing vs cv or whatever tomorrow.

Thanks much!

Default wheel bearing tool kit

Hi Scott - you have PM & email. I have a wheel bearing tool kit, happy to loan it out, maybe can lend a hand, timing/time permitting . . . it's typically not that difficult of a job with the proper tools, planning, parts, patience, etc.

Default ALH swap into B5 A4

Long time member/ lurker and TDI owner. Had a 2001 TDI beetle since new have 350k on it.
Transmission just went out again and canít justify the $3000 to rebuild it.
So in my infinite wisdom / midlife crisis I decided I was putting it in a car I liked.
After some research I settled on a 2001 A4 Avant.
Found one at auction for a steal with only 113,000 on it, V6 5spd.
I think I can handle most of it but was wondering if anyone in the area can do ECU flashes/tunes and is fimiliar with Audi VW interactions ?
I am located in Milltown, WI but Work in Arden Hills, MN.
Any tips or personal experience would be greatly appreciated.
Iím a truck mechanic by trade and have done all the maintenance on my car ( minus automatic transmission work)
Thanks
Tony

Aron, I dunno if you still post here, but I took my 2011 to Autobahn for maintenance when I lived up in Duluth. The guy that runs it was an Audi technician for about 10 years and has factory Audi training.

Mike is a great guy personally, too. I bet he still remembers my car. It was red, loud as ****, and had racing stripes.

Try Orr Autosport in Eden Prairie or Nur Technik in Burnsville. They may be able to help.
