Hello! Hello! I ran into this forum site while searching for a diesel car to purchase. I finally narrowed down my search to a Jetta. I am from Orange County, CA. This weekend I ended up buying a CPO 2015 VW Jetta TDI SEL. And I LOVE IT! Had a low 16500 miles on it. Plan on keeping this car for a long time and upgrading little things here and there. Thought I'd make an account and join the forum fun.

Already bought upgrade halogen high and low beam bulbs. Looking at best options for interior LED lights too. This car will be a fun project car for me. Though living in California my first big investment is going to be tinted windows. My black leather seats are ALREADY getting hot from 60 degree weather lol!

See ya'll around!

Welcome to the forum! Please do a lot of reading first as most things you will have questions about have already been discussed many times in many threads. Search and read here first before buying anything and save yourself some money. Enjoy your new car!

Default newbie, from the land of the ice and snow

[IMG][/IMG]Hello all. New to me 82,000km, 2015 Comfortline TDI GSW. CPO and fixed. First VW since a beetle back in the 70s when I was a kid. Been driving big trucks with big weight for over 30 years so I am familiar with diesels but this is my first tdi. Looking forward to learning all about them. Bought it primarily as a road trip/retirement car and plan to drive it a long while. Kept the old 03 Honda for my short work commute as this is too nice to ruin with work clothes and gear.

I've only got these two pictures at the moment....
Im averaging 45 mpg (UK) to my commute to work over a full tank, mixed driving and the weekend blast included.
On track below 30mpg and on a run of 150miles sitting @80mph around 52 55 mpg.
Car is a lot of fun and has loads of torque.

Not stock it's an extension to bring it closer to the wheel...
I've done a short shifter as well..

Did you design/machine the extension yourself? Always good to pair it with a shortened throw.

Hi all, Very glad I joined the club. Always wanted to have a diesel. I grew up in Europe and all we ever bought was diesels. We still have '89 Land Cruiser LJ73 inline 5, manual. '03 corolla also diesel.
I had a B5 Passat 1.8T (here in the USA) but at least it was stick. Picked it up for $280 two years ago, put 25k miles on it, served me well and I still have it. I finally upgraded to '12 Golf TDI, 56k miles. Loving the diesel rumble and the mpg. Any tips on always appreciated!

Cheers

Hello! Glad to be here. I bought a 2012 Jetta Sportwagen TDI in 2014 and have 130,000 miles on it. Lately, it's been a challenging relationship, unfortunately.
