    I miss you guys

    Been out of the club for a while since my new purchase(2007 audi q7 4.2l v8) and felt like saying hi. My power enhancement was going from the 130hp TDI to a 350hp V8 :) Unfortunately, i only get 16mpg and I miss my jetta incredibly. might buy another!

    over 200k miles all original :)

    Still original dmf and clutch. Maybe the aggressive driving keeps the dmf fully cycling like it should? Original front brakes too! And pads are still above half life.

    Maybe the people with failures aren't driving their cars as hard as they should be!

    Cover is still tight, it just consumes oil consistently. I'm thinking turbo seals

    Over 200k miles on all the original equipment. Oil changes every 10k miles with liquimoly 5-40 and the only issue currently is oil consumption. This car has been nothing but reliable and dependable. This is a 2006 Betts tdi pd brm Thought this forum could use a positive post!

    feeler on a 2006 jetta tdi special edition

    I've maintained it since I got it at 83000 miles. I don't log my services I do to it. I just do it and get it done(oil changes every 10k miles, timing belt every 100k miles, tires rotated, so on and so forth)

    04 audi a4 quatro and 05 passat pre part out offer

    How much for rims and tires? And how much tread is left? I've curbed my rims and my tires are just at legal tread limit(almost bald) I'm trying to find good rims with good tires or good rims I can put new tires on.

    feeler on a 2006 jetta tdi special edition

    As I said, everything is original. No noise from the dmf, no clutch slipping. And no noise indicating a camshaft issue.

    2006 Jetta questions

    Honestly, I went down this road wanting to get more power. But in the end, I just got a tune from green diesel and I'm content with 130whp and 50mpg. When you start asking for more you really need to open up the wallet. I'd say get an upgraded cam and an engine tune from whatever vendor you...

    feeler on a 2006 jetta tdi special edition

    Trying to get a ballpark figure on what you guys would pay for this girl and if it sounds about right, I might sell her. She's a 2006 jetta tdi special edition that just turned 200k miles. She is flawless in condition other than the drivers seat that has cracks in the leather. Everything is...

    To repair or replace an '06 BRM....

    I'm sitting at 194k miles on the original everything. Including original front brakes. Only things I've changed are timing belts and oil and filters. I use liqui-moli 5-40w fully synthetic vw502.00 rated oil every 10-12k miles.

    Best RPM range for Fuel Economy?

    Your best fuel economy will be achieved at your engines peak torque( somewhere around 2200rpm). This is where piston speed and fuel atomization/combustion is most efficient and getting maximum work for fuel burned.
