    Who's keeping, who's selling?

    Well, it's been real y'all. Took delivery of the R yesterday. It's everything I'd hoped for in more, just such a good driver's car. TDI buyback scheduled for about 2 weeks.

    Who's keeping, who's selling?

    Well, I'm officially out. Closed the deal on 2017 Golf R today. Should get into the dealer right about when the settlement checks start coming in.

    HPFP Failures on E288 Engines?

    I believe the sticking point has always been lubricity, not sulfur levels.

    Who's keeping, who's selling?

    Sorry, but I think you are dreaming. Who would buy them? Largest buyback in automotive history.

    Who's keeping, who's selling?

    There are no 2017 TDIS. Don't expect any 2018s or 2019s, or...

    Who's keeping, who's selling?

    I get that kind of mileage when I take long highway trips (over 50, sometime). But these days I work from how, so lots of short short city trips and not much highway these days. Also live in a hot climate where the AC gets run about 9-10 months out of the year,

    Who's keeping, who's selling?

    I expect it to be about the same. Same 10kish schedule as the TDI for oil and filters. On the downside, there is a haldex fluid change every 30k change, but no worries about DPF or the timing belt (it's a chain). I work from home these days so I only do about 12-15k a year.

    40k / 50k service plans?

    My dealer told me that, if nothing else I could spend the balance with them on the card before it expires, and it'll be treated as an account credit for whenever I need it.

    Speedometer and Odometer off?

    Speedo will always read high. Euro regs allow for the reading to be high by up to, I believe, 10%, but have 0% tolerance for reading low.

    Anyone know a way to track historical Blue Book values?

    That's going to be really hard to pin down, since the cars were on sale for less than a year prior to dieselgate. Can't imagine that many hit the used market.
