    2015 Q7 vs. 2015/16 MB GL350?

    Hello - I've been looking to buy a Q7 (TDI of course) for a while now, but wanted to know if anybody has compared the Q7 against the MB GL 350 BlueTEC. I have a 2013 Touareg TDI, so I sort of know what I'm getting into w/ the Q7. I've read lots about the pano roof and Air Suspension on the...

    How to check restitution claim on TDI

    Hi - I am shopping for a Q7 TDI. Is there a way to check the VW claims portal and determine if a current owner has received the restitution payment on a specific vehicle? I've been to the VW claims portal, but don't see if there is a way to determine if the payment has already been settled...

    Bay Area Meetups?

    Oh man...those were good days Romad...I enjoyed kicking it in the sun for a few hours at those GTG's. I wasn't aware of how/why these GTG's stopped.... Hows the wagon treating you? I just fixed a boost leak on my lower intercooler pipe and now it drives pretty good...not perfect...but way...

    WTB - OEM stock Downpipe for 2005 TDI (BEW)

    Engine cover parts - named?

    put a WTB ad in the classifieds section if you really want these pieces. many people take the silly plastic engine cover off as it's dead weight and I'm sure somebody will be happy to sell you theirs. You'd be looking for an engine cover for a 2004 or 2005 (BEW engine code). This is very easy...

    Thinking about another TDI again.

    I'm going to throw in a vote for a 97 (if you can find one) because they don't need to be smog certified in CA. I have 2 A4 (one ALH and one PD)...I'd go with ALH with 2003 being the last year before the PD if you decide on the A4 platform
