Thanks folks, the new owner just pulled away in her. I ended up having the new hood and bumper painted and put on.
re: the glovebox, im fairly certain they all had it stock as Oilhammer said.
I'm going to miss her :sniffle:
I did order a new X5 35d though. Pretty excited about that.
Thanks folks! I'm still kind of on the fence about selling her. I love her, but I sold my M5 and now I'm going to sell this and get something that combines the two. Maybe a X5 335d!

For some reason, the posting...
Due to lack of (current) use and requirement for additional floor space in my garage, I have decided to parts ways with my Appleseed biodiesel reactor.
Upon request, I can draft up a document explaining actions required to convert waste vegetable oil (WVO) into clean burning biodiesel.
I know, what a crock. You can get the B5 in 4-motion or 5 speed (not sure about both in one), but you can't get a B5 TDI.
You can get a B5.5 with a TDI, but no TDI +5 speed or TDI + 4 motion.
Naturally the dream is TDI + 5 speed + 4 Motion = happy man
I do not recommend the Weather Tech mats that are supposed to fit the B5.5. I got a set and they slid all over the place. They fit better in my Jeep...haha
I have the Sams Club special (like 20 bucks for four) and they are great thus far (about a year). They show no wear
P.S- CT native as well.
Waldorf VW in MD did my GPs and ECU flash in under 2 hours as well.
I notice the GP light stays on for a second or two longer, but hey no problems either.
at 55K, my original plugs looked great as well. One less headache.
Next step is RC tune...
IIRC auto makers started installing better hoses in ~1993, so if you were to start out with a weak mixture, you should be fine.
You can get kits specifically cut for your application from greaseworks.com. The guy's name is Justin and i have dealt with him in the past.
Being both a Diesel fan and Jeep fan, belive me i am looking for you. I would kill to find a decently priced Cummins 4BT for my TJ.
Oh, i see Ian all the time but then again we work in the same building.
So whats up fellow DC area folks? Been havign any meets lately?
The wifeys father works for Subie corporate in NJ. Says they pushed back production for US due to auto trans mating issues. Apparently torque was a factor.
Diesel Subies are selling like hotcakes in Europe.
i lost my turbo to intercooler cross connect hose and that was what was happening to me. Turns out that a piece of plastic wire conduit was chafing the boost charge line and wore a hole in it.
This is the silicone hose off the turbo to the cross connect, not the cross connect. I would check...
