To those of us who have owned and driven a reliable TDI for 10 or 15 years or more, that car is a bit like a cowboy's horse.

hi folks! yuppers... i tried to keep the '02 going as long as I could without going crazy... but she's gotta go. Too bad, newish clutch, brakes, suspension... the inline coolant heater - belly plate... side marker delete, 4motion valence - have a goofy tuner that make a ton of smoke too (not on the car now) but couldn't get it to run - no idea why... ANYWAY... looking at a '13 A3 or a '15 Sportwagen... about the same amount of miles and wondering if you all have any thoughts. I lean to the Golf for the extra space for the BODL (big old dumb lab) but the A3 looks like a gas ...err... diesel? thanks for the feedback... (come get the wagon - 1.5K)

My dog and my car are two totally different entities. The dog is a loyal companion and a sentient being. the car is just inert metal. Memory lane or not living breathing beings are not the same as a man-made metal product. I really hate it when many express the "love" for a car. Do they really know what love is? Love will always respond back to you, a car cannot no matter how fond you were about an inert possession. The car serves a purpose if it served you well it was a good car. Nuff said.

So sad only 360,000 miles. My 02 Golf threw a rod at 305,000 but I had tuned it up pretty high.

I've been eyeballing the jetta on there at $8xx

Just dragged home an insight, it needs more (diesel) power in the back wheels... Projects for years to come.
