Impex came through pretty well for me, I just had very low expectations based on my initial bait and switch experience. The parts are all OEM and should work fine. I expect to pick up my now chainless TDI tomorrow.

Hooray!!!!! It's a very relaxing feeling knowing that the chain is gone, and the engine is quieter too. It has been a pleasure to drive my unchained wagon for the past 2 weeks. I've crushed the potato chip on my throttle pedal a lot more than I did in the past.

If you think it's a pleasure to drive now, get a tune from TDTuning/Malone/Rocketchip on there. B5.5's drive soooooo nice with a tune.

they had a significant price jump in February. Bora's price reflects that but still probably the best package price you will find. BTW, the delete kit price from Bora went down.

For what it's worth we do have plenty of delete kits as well as regular BSM kits in stock at the moment

Is there any way to tell from the outside if this work was already done?

A video with sound posted here is a pretty good way. You may as well work with the assumption that it still has a chain.
