I'm looking at the 2012 ML350 Bluetec. MB says they only approve "B5 5% ASTM D6751 spec biodiesel". Is this just run of the mill diesel you can get at any gas station in the US because they will not honor the warranty if they find out you use lesser grade diesel on the engine? Is it possible...
I saw it a couple of years ago. It was done by a Brit motor show showing a Mk 3 or 4 stock TDI Golf in silver color out dragged a 996 Porsche 911 in 0-30mph by quite a distance due to the diesel torque. Has anyone seen this vid anywhere? Thanks!
Test drove a SEL today with DSG but can't feel the torque. I have to floor the car most of the time to get some power out of it because nothing happens when you just press the pedal half way. Is the car too new because it feels very sluggish and less powerful than a 2.0T gasser B6 Passat...
I was sitting in traffic behind a random A4 Jetta TDI with a TDIClub sticker on the rear window today. The guy was revving his engine and I noticed black smoke coming out of the exhaust. Is this normal?
If I plan to keep the car for a long time, is there anything major that must be replaced after the warranty expired and is going to cost $$$$?
How long will the DSG last before needing replacement or complete overhaul?
