Would anyone help a brother out and swap wheels with me if you are doing the buyback? 225 45 R17, 2013 Jetta sport wagon.

Here's the story. I bought a Jetta Sportswagon cheap and intended to sell it back to Volkswagen. It has almost new tires on but they are like tractor tires, ice and snow tires super aggressive tread and really loud on the road. I have a 2012 Passat that I planned on keeping. But I recently found out the clutch is damaged, and it doesn't make sense for me to hold onto the Passat. So I will be keeping the Jetta Sportswagon and giving the Passat back to Volkswagen. But the tires are driving me crazy on the Jetta Sportswagon. If anyone has a set of good all season tires for my Jetta, from a car you plan to give back to Volkswagen, let me know. I'll come right to your house and swap my wheels for yours. If you need a few bucks to make it work I am all ears.

Thanks in advance!

Nice 2-door Mk4 Golf TDI just popped up on Minneapolis Craigslist.

OK, just wondering if someone on here traded in an '03 Red Beetle to Luther's?

I'm looking for a mechanic in Northern Minnesota. Anyone from Duluth have any experience with Autobahn Service or Foreign affairs and/or have a preference? Or, if you have a recommendation closer to Grand Rapids/Hibbing, that's even better. Thank you.

Cambridge is only 2 hours and 30 minutes from Hibbing. Nick aka Greengeeker is a very professional TDI guru. Schedule way in advance for Major work.

I've heard of a VW shop in Hill City (south of grand rapids), but haven't had any luck getting them to answer their phone. Was trying to have them do some work on my brother's vw a while back. Maybe look them up and try?

I think the place is called Hill City VW or something along those lines.

I've heard of them too, but I don't know if its legitimate. I've driven through Hill City multiple times and never seen them. Unless someone on here posts something about it, I'll probably try one of the two places in Duluth that I mentioned. I was just curious if anyone used them.

Who you go to depends on what kind of work you need done. Almost any competent mechanic can do brake work, suspension work, the charging and starting systems, etc. You only need a TDI expert for stuff that is TDI-specific: the injection system, turbo issues, and timing belt changes. And if you want an upgraded engine tune, of course.

Hey all, I am in the Onamia/Brainerd/Baxter area for a few days and will be driving back to KC when my business is complete on Friday, so if you see a white BMW 335d rolling through it might be me

Peeps, there are several Mk4 tdis at the Johns auto you pull yard. One is a very complete auto with an 11mm pump.
