    thanks :) I'm selling just because I'm very rarely driving - I now bicycle everywhere. It's been a transition for me. I was driving 40k / yr and now my car is parked and covered the majority of the year. I've become really fit, I'm saving a lot of $$ and it's a lot of fun actually! :)

    dealer says new turbo is needed ...

    I'm almost embarrassed to say that the problem was simply a split in the vacuum line that goes to the turbo waste gate. I'd pulled & looked at the line but the split was hidden by the braided line covering ... until it got really big. First Team VW Roanoke VA's diagnosis was "turbo needs to be...
