    Incorrect Battery from Dealership!!?!

    Interesting reading. Got a battery quote from VW for a B4 TDI and chatted with a certified master mechanic who told me the manufacturer for their VW badged battery is Interstate. Have had good service from Interstate batteries in gasser vehicles too. Battery Tender from Deltran helps to keep...

    '96 B4 Sedan in Arizona Junkyard, anyone need parts?

    Enjoying reading 90+ posts and learning A3/A4, B4 GLX/TDI intricacies from the knowledgeable VW veterans. On the other hand, roadtripping ~3,400 miles to inspect this B4 example is also tempting. :cool:

    If the triangular plastic screw cover trim pieces near the front/back windows are black, and still available, I would be interested.

    Who’s going to Tesla after their current TDI?

    It seems the unfortunate reality is that many environmentally motivated people are more interested in appearing virtuous, or bragging about their new Prius or Tesla than in doing their homework.

    The level should be checked after screwing the cap back on.
