Default Parts suppliers, sellers, etc, read this!! ALSO a word of caution.

While most members here on TDIClub.com are outstanding people and great to deal with, one should always use their own good judgment when making a purchase or sale (private individual or vendor). Especially in light of some recent issues that have arisen.

This would include making sure you have a Name, Address (not just a PO box), a valid phone number, valid and traceable email address (not yahoo or hotmail as an example). Also as the saying goes, "If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is" as in the end it is your car and money.

For the past several weeks we have been working on a type of vendor registration system for vendors. Hopefully this will help a bit, but it will never be a panacea, so using your own good judgment is paramount.

For vendors on TDIClub.com, send me an email @ fred@tdiclub.com and I'll include you when we finally have the process and forms finalized.

In light of recent events that have proceeded VW Derf's post above from 2004, I want to simply remind everyone to pay attention to any brand new member signing on to sell something, and that standard disclaimers apply. This is NOT intended to discriminate against new members, nor is it intended to discourage legitimate transactions of any kind.

By all means do all necessary due diligence on every party of every transaction.

Rules are rules: anyone who comes to sell something as a vendor MUST be registered to as such to TDIClub management. A vendor, whether a registered/incorporated business or a home-operated outfit, is defined here as anybody who sells a good or goods in a manner that is more than just a circumstantial clearing of one's garage of personal effects. Where a vendor is not a registered business and the letter of the rules do not adequately apply, the spirit does.

Important reminder: TDIClub.com WILL NOT BE AN ARBITOR, NOR TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY of any disputes, losses, damages, etc., whatsoever arising from a transaction from the classified service.

If you are a new/used parts seller, reseller, supplier, wholesaler, etc, we ask some things of you:

1. Register as a member,


2. Register as a vendor,


Q & A concerning vendors and the vendor FAQ can be found here:


New member/vendors must wait 60 days before they can post their wares and/or services for sale. We realize this is inconvenient but it screens out the eBay, Craig's List, and all the usual venues the scammers and frauds use.

3. Post your wares in the vendors' forum:


4. No linking to your eBay auctions, Craigslist links, etc. Become a member and simply post your wares in the vendor's forum. There are too many scams on eBay, Craigslist, etc. Become a member of TDIClub and register as a vendor because this gives buyers & sellers easier access to each other, much better credibility and communication, and helps screen out the scammers.

Anyone who is found out to be a seller and posts eBay links, Craigslist links, etc, on TDIClub's forums will have their threads and/or posts removed. This includes links in signatures, profiles, and avatars. Repeat offenders will be banned.

Thank you.

If ANYONE receives a PM/email from a TDIClub member shilling anything and they are NOT a registered vendor, please forward the PM/emails to me. To report spam, trolling, or any problem post, click the report post icon. (The icon in the actual problem post, not the one in my sig. The idiots know who they are... )

This is a reminder to be very vigilant and pay extra attention and due diligence to very new members advertising things for sale. Repeat scammers who have been banned have signed on with aliases to continue selling their wares. We try to keep on top of these, but we need your help to report suspicious posts.

TO BE CLEAR: The vast majority of classified ads, even those placed by brand new members, are perfectly legitimate. We don't want to discourage or put these to a stop. But we want to simultaneously try to protect members from scammers, and send a message to those scammers that they are not welcome here.

Report suspicious posts by clicking on this icon beside the offending post:

Thank you.

Are you looking to do it yourself or to find someone who takes care of the labor and the part selling?
Let me know.

Default Panzer plate for 2012 VW Golf TDI $50

I'm getting ready turn turn in my TDI to Volkswagen. It has a Panzer Plate. You can have it for the eye-popping price of $50. The catch, of course, is that you have to come over and remove it. I'm in Denver, CO.
