2015 Golf SE TDI Blue Silk Beige 3 pedals - my wife joined the A7 club today. She picked the car up from Chris Farnham (3193) in NJ and is now on the way back to MN with it, while I sit at the office toiling away. :)

I'm checking locally and going through the FS for sale posts in this forum.
While I'm at it, just thought I'd post up a WTB Want To By.

Bentley Picture N94-0025, Section W 94-13 thru W 94-16
Number 13 Contact Ring
Number 16 Clamping washer
What function do these parts serve?
What problems would you expect if they were absent?
Why? Because they are missing on my B4 and there has apparently been a long-standing short from...
This is probably longer than it should be, hopefully it will at least be clear . .
Last summer my wife's 2000 New Beetle TDI 5-speed exhibited occasionall non-start behavior, gradually increasing in frequency, and even died a couple of times. With the no-starts, after 2 or more attempts...
2000 Beetle ALH is performing poorly.
VAG-COM shows actual MAF quite low compared to specified.
I would like to positively verify MAF fault with a benchtest, but can't find any bench test info.
Anyone have baseline/threshold info for resistance across terminals, etc.?
HELP! Engine Runaway. How do I troubleshoot/diagnose and repair, is there a howto?
Just happend in 00 NB TDI w/~ 125k miles, tried searching, perhaps a little to stressed out at the moment, but not finding something concise, lots of tangents, etc.
Not sure extent of damage, not sure where to...
Feeler: WTB 00 Beetle TDI Auto Yellow/Grey Heated Leather
Wife may be having clutch issues with left leg.
Beetle was what she wanted last time she bought a car, now she doesn't know what she wants . . . I'm cheap and lazy, but tend to do my own work,which means a 'matching' car would be best...
Flying into Portland 29 July, 2006 and back out 06 August, 2006.
Would LOVE to be able to rent a TDI, or possibly a hybrid, while in the area.
Anyone know the Portland car rental options well enough to help me locate something?
Looking for an intake manifold for my 2000 New Beetle.
If you have one available, clean or dirty, and it won't break the bank, please reply and/or PM me.
Just want to have one on hand so I can swap in quick and either clean my old one at leisure, or 'pay it forward' to another clubber...
WTB: 96 (B4) Passat TDI Downpipe for Exhaust
The Passat I recently bought has the dreaded leaky flex section.
I'd like to see if anyone has a NOS/broken/fixed replacement they'd like to give/sell to me.
Condition of the scrubber (catalytic converter) is irrelevant to me.
I'm in the...
BOUGHT: Bentley Manuals for B4 96 Passat Sedan
Recent inductee to the B4 ranks. My A3 & A4 manuals won't help me much.
I'm looking for both of the following, new or used:

I've searched back through the forums to see if anyone currently has either of the above...
Apologies in advance for the length.
The situation: Wife drives this car 99% of the time on her commute and for her trips here and there. On the occasional road trip or night out, etc., where we are both in the car, I tend to get 50% of the wheel time. She tends to drive like there's a...
I think I've done my due diligence, reading the Bentley manual, reading the A4 TB change guide listed, researched the forums, etc. I waded into the 60k TB change on my wife's 2000 New Beetle TDi.
Still - even after solidly establishing my position as the person who will perform the longest...
Anybody have any comments on how to avoid and how to handle either as party to, witness to, or first person on scene.
Things I have learned:
I (ideally) am always looking for an exit path, using a 2 second (plus) follow rule, constantly aware of the traffic pattern in my mirrors. I...
On 29 November I was car 4 in a 5 car chain reaction on an arterial street in a Minneapolis suburb. I stopped when traffic in front of me stopped and as I was wondering if I had used up too much of the buffer in front of me was rear-ended by a Ranger traveling an estimated 40 MPH at...
