Looking forward to it, sounds like it should be a lot of fun. I'm quickly approaching the timing belt change, so it would be good to hear from the experts on the subject. I think I have less than 10K to go on it.

Unfortunately with the '09s, there aren't too many experts regarding the timing belt yet. But I'm sure someone there will have some experience with it.

I've read and been told that the 09 timing belt job is similar to an ALH timing belt job.

The only thing I know about the timing belt (chain?) is that the manual says to replace at 120K. Not sure how many miles are on the car now, I believe it is over 110K at this point.

Back on subject, what goes on at the Impex Fest?

Wrenching, Tuning, Meeting Other TDIers, Playing With VCDS, Buying and Selling Stuff, Telling Lies, and Oh Yes, Eating Good Food and Drinking Good Beer (The last in moderation, of course!)

Sounds good, I know VERY little about VCDS. Only enough to be dangerous at this point. Your post reminded me, I have stock tail-lights to sell off if anyone is interested, I'll make sure to bring them along just in case.

I'm off to Ireland. Can't make it this year. Maybe the kids can make it. The boys are still local and still running their TDIs. They may show up.

I made the personal jump to the Nissan LEAF this past year, but we're still a four TDI family... (don't ask what happened to the 5th).

I can stand around watching with a beer in one hand, but I probably won't be too helpful.

Chances are good someone useful will be on hand to supervise you.

I also have that EGR cooler valve hiss going on that I'd like to take care of as well.
