As the engine is sourced out of Germany (or other European foundries), I would assume that Bosch will contiue to supply the same hpfp for all of the engines, regardless of where that engines will be placed into service.

Note that when I say the same hpfp, that I am referring to the third (?) generation pump that is on the 2011 TDIs sitting on the lots today.

So this last generation HPFP is problem free?

To early to tell. There seem to be less failures with each generation of the hpfp but am not sure if we can call it "cured". It would be great if VWOA decided to replace all of the early generation hpfps when Bosch finally has one that will not fail with US diesel but don't really see that happening unless the NTHSA tells them to.

Anyone see the TV program that showed the Passat in early production-testing and training the Robots to do the jobs?

This is why we are getting a US built Passat instead of German. They are giving the mass public what they want, not us on here. Remember we are niche group. With only 10,000 2004-2005 Passat TDI's made we are a small subset of that 800,000 total they are trying to reach.

Has anyone heard or confirmed if the Engine and Transmission are both still being produced in German and shipped as a unit for installation in the US?

Also, everyone has noted this vehicle has the AdBlue, urea product, right? This allowed them to get better MPG/Performance and still be 50 State NOx compliant. Sounds like the Passat is getting a better performing engine chance for better MPG (with driving style of course) and still meeting the better NOx levels.

I seem to recall that some of our TDI engines were Polish... but maybe my memory is rusty.

Hmmm. Mine stated Manufacture location was Bremen and the Engine and Transmission origins Germany per the windows sticker.

I checked both of them. Yes, I still have them after all these years.

Your memory serves you well. My B5.5 if recall was of Polish origin as well as my A5.

Rusty....

I have both of the window stickers, Both final assembly Mosel Germany, Engine Origin Germany, Transmission Origin Germany.

Maybe it is those from Poland with the balance shaft issues?

Default Order In!

According to my salesman, my order should be in the system today. It was somewhat frustrating trying to choose a color as the "selector" on VW's site is a poor representation and all galleries that I could find do not indicate the color shown.

From what I was told, I can expect the car by end of August / early September.

Fingers crossed that it's a reliable, well built appliance!

Is that a Firehawk nose I spot in your avatar?

Had a 2000 Formula, 6-spd before I bought my first Golf.
