    If you were shopping, Gen 1 or Gen 3?

    EA288. Gen 3. Ende. I have owned 2 mk7's and one MK5 (JSW). The JSW is no comparison to the MK7 platform. period. MK7 platform (golf) is easily the best golf made. I have had both a GSW and Golf sedan. Both ride fine. The GSW has a slight case of wagon butt, and is not as "on rails" the golf...

    Is there an Emergency hold on the 2.0 Gen 2 fix??

    GSW SE/SEL Seat Swap

    I swapped the seats from my SEL wagon (gray interior) to the Titanium silver SE golf I bought. Airbag Modules stay with car - not the seat. Make sure the wiring harnesses are the same, mine had an extra ground in it and the harness plug was same, but had an extra wire in the golf, I think.

    Just did my first ea288 oil change

    I've put almost 90k on two ea288, and finally did my first oil change, actually.... A 40k. Had a maintenance package on my first one, and couple freebies on this one. All I can say is LOL...... This is my third CT tdi. While not an actually difficult job, it might be the stupidest placement...

    2015 Gen 3 Fix Phase 2 - First Impressions

    fuel rail is covered under the warranty from the fix anyway. the entire fuel delivery system is, I think. You would have been covered regardless.

    63 mpg avg?

    No offense- useless data is useless. Hand calc is the only accurate way. Ive got fix stage 1 (no tune) and when the MFI reads 45 or so I average 41-42, this is mostly my 75% highway commute. I hope to have a malone some day, but theyre expensive and I dont really have the cash for it right...

    Why bother to accept a buy back?

    I took the buyback. And turned right back around and bought another 2015 golf, for half again the price, and 20K miles, vs the 2015 I had with 70K on it. Why? because the gov said I shouldn't own one for my own good. It only makes me want one more. Oh, and its getting a Malone. Why? because...

    ACTUAL purchases of '15 USED (buyback) TDIs

    look at my sig. Wagon - pre fix Silver golf - post fix. Silver golf has been geting better MPG than the wagon ever did (with the exact same wheels and tires, I took them off the wagon), even in cold temps. Im ok with this, even though the changes to the DSG SUCK, and I'll want to tune them...

    Restitution payment after purchase of fixed used 2015?

    Dont see this happening but... in for answers. My wagon went for buyback. A week later I bought a buyback / phase 1 golf.

    Restitution payment after purchase of fixed used 2015?

    Not sure how that makes sense. As to where to buy one? I'd look at each individual car on it's merits. Non VW OEM dealers (like a toyota dealer) buying a TDi seems odd.
