Yes, many thanks for all your assistance! I'll be due for a timing belt in about 30k, if you're up for that. Probably will need to do brakes and suspension before then as well.

In 6-8 weeks I will be a member of this forum. We are moving from MN to somewhere between Indy and Bloomington.

I have VCDS Hex-Can and lots of specialty tools that will come with me.

Yes at this time of year the road conditions might not be as (dry) as you think. The ESP is not for wet conditions. It the light comes on to alert the driver that their driving is exceeding the surface conditions on the road. This is often due to sarge presence of salt and fine sand. They also can make the surface slick.

My problem it is staying on for any hour or more at time. It has gone off for now. So I'll chalk up to sand or salt near the sensor.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I finally got sick of working on my wife's POS 2007 Passat wagon gasser every weekend. That car was nice on the road and really fast for a wagon, but every time I got in it I found a new leak or heard a new noise or something broke. It was a huge let down for a car that should have been a long-term keeper.
I traded it in on a 2012 Subaru Legacy 2.5x. It's a real sweetheart and it's bumper to bumper covered by Subaru till 100k or 2019. All I have to do is change the oil and cover the wear items. I really like driving it too, although I won't get to drive it much. It's got a CVT so it doesn't shift. It's an eerie feeling really, but so smooth. If you want it "shift" you can control the revs with sport mode and the flapper paddles on the steering wheel. 31mpg on cheap gas, AWD, made in Indiana... I liked the Passat, but I love the Subie!
Don't worry, my golf isn't going anywhere for now...

Finally have a TDI! Been lusting for one for a long time. Only disappointment is no parking lights, and the DRL disable procedure as described in the manual (turn signal / ignition dance) doesn't work.
