Very sorry to hear about all your losses. After what I have read about the flood prone nature of the Houston area (100 significant floods since its founding) I would take the insurance and raise the house and garage 6 feet.

Sorry to hear about your losses iamatt. Hopefully everyone is safe and the insurance company covers it all. Good luck rebuilding. Maybe you can still find a new 2015 GSW TDI.

You should be able to get the restitution amount and let insurance make up the rest. IMHO

Geico cut me a small check. I did pull the ECU which didn't touch water. It has malone stage 2 for an 2014 manual if anyone can use?

Sorry to hear about your car, hope everything else is alright. ECU will need an immo defeat to work on another car, if you'd like to ship it up to us we can do it for free.

Is it true that most Texans drive pickups? They don't get 30+ MPG. To me, these pickups and all the SUVs are showing Americans don't much care about global warming, which, they say, causes more radical weather {hurricanes, floods etc]
That's one reason for TDIs, Puises etc.
Nuff said.

It used to be that most Texans drove Suburbans, but that may have changed in the last ten years. And no genuine Texan would be caught dead in a Prius.

Pretty tasteless timing for giving Texans a hard time- especially those impacted by severe flooding. I see lots of unloaded pickups all over the country. Very common in my area. They are quite utilitarian and not everyone can afford multiple vehicles.

If it wasn't for the pickups towing boats in to rescue stranded residents, there would have been a lot more loss of life here. I didn't see any Prius's pulling any rescue craft during the storm though.

What works for me is, for hauling, I have a 4' by 6' trailer that combined with the Golf hatch will transport most everything I need. This allows me to drive a "fun to drive" car for most everything else. It's surprising how much fits in the back of a Golf.

Really sorry to read about the car and of course all of the other property damage. A 2014 JSW with a 6 speed and a Malone 2 tune.....that is a tough one to lose. I would love to happen upon a vehicle like that for sale.
