All attendees must register for the event. This process for this is explained in the first post of the "registration is LIVE" thread (sticky in this forum).

Think it is fair to say it boils down to making a $60 contribution to support the TDIClub for the whole year.

^^This… I've probably saved several thousand dollars over the years doing my own repairs using the FREE information and advice that I have found on this website.

You're welcome to come up! As Lug_Nut said, outdoor activities are open to the public, but if you want to attend any of the tech sessions, you will need to register. Hope to see you there!

Sadly my 2012 X5 35d is currently at Tulley BMW in Nashua NH getting looked at to diagnose a Check Engine Light or SES (Service Engine Soon in BMW-speak), multiple codes thrown and way down in power due to limp mode from throwing the codes. Reduced power in limp mode is such that it can't maintain highway speed and almost can't climb the hill in my neighborhood. Car was running excellent and power and MPGs were all where they should be prior to this happening over the weekend and gave no prior warning. Car currently has 95k miles on it, bought used (CPO deal) at 52k miles. This is the first time it has ever thrown a code or misbehaved at all.

Fortunately the X5 35d is still under CPO warranty. What eventually comes of this will determine whether I decide to keep it past warranty if the root cause turns out to be a recurring issue.

My money is on egr valve, but it will be emission related I'm sure. I wouldn't know of such issues on my X5D.............

Well now I'm on the fence on which car to bring to TDIfest2015. I got the X5 35d back today, all fixed under CPO warranty. Turned out to be a failed MAF, EGT, and boost pressure sensors. Car runs BETTER than it ever has before and mileage and power are improved. I'm not sure which car to bring to TDIfest2015 because both are such a hoot to drive.

Anyhow Lisa and I are all registered for TDIfest2015 and lodging is booked. Looking forward to meeting you there!

I decided I'm going to bring the X5 35d to TDIfest this year since I brought the 535d there in 2013. I also want a ride in BuzzKen's modded 335d.

Anybody planning to bring a T'Reg V6 or V10 TDI or Audi Q7 TDI to TDIfest this year?
