    So long and thanks for the fish

    I've only owned my 2014 Beetle TDI premium for 8 months but the VW emissions drama and worrying about how much money I was going to loose along with reading 2014 Jetta TDI is now only getting $8k at auction motivated me to trade it in, take some cash out of my 401k and buy a 2016 Jeep Wrangler...

    VW TDI goodwill package: Offers $500 Visa cards & $500 dealer credits to TDI owners

    I think a lot of us are thinking about getting a Qpro or equivalent to back up our ECUs. I plan on getting a lock for the ECU port too. I don't want VW tampering with my car.

    VW TDI goodwill package: Offers $500 Visa cards & $500 dealer credits to TDI owners

    Here's why my TDI only has 7k miles ... My daily commute to work increased to 120 miles/day. I traded in my Wrangler for the TDI. The TDI made sense at the time. My Wrangler had 34" wheels and the 60 mile ride up and back would get old at 15mpg. I Ended up finding an opportunity closer to...

    Cool! At least I'll know when they want to access the port. This looks like the answer.

    Is there a way to password protect.my ECU on a 2014 TDI

    My TDI is getting high mpg (62mpg long road trips no traffic, 42 mpg 18 mile daily commute moderate/heavy traffic). I want to keep the vw dealers hands off my ECU. The vehicle is my property so I should be able to. Will Vagcom allow me to back it up and lock it ?

    FE to expect from 2.0 CR TDI?

    Alberta-- isn't it cold outside ? when it's cold diesel is blended with anti gel and kereosene. mpg will take a hit. I still achieve 43mpg during the commute to work. During the spring you will see at least 25% improvemnt.. unless the emissions fix reduces overall efecciency.

    Resale value in light of recent events

    it's better to be able to trade the car in at 30k miles and not loose your shirt Let's face it. VW service is expensive. If you buy the car at a good price, take care of it, and trade it in at a non VW dealership you should do great.. but you can't because of #dieselgate I didn't plan on...

    Has anyone tried to play video from a mdi device ?

    I've got an RNS510 in my TDI. It's been working fine with my ipod touch connected to the mdi interface. Has anyone figured how to play video from the mdi interface ? I might try to create a folder with the same format as a DVD (TS_VIDEO, TS_AUDIO, etc. ) Has anyone tried this already ?
