    Interesting conversation

    I did my turn-in today. I asked the lady if she has had to deal with any cars that were missing parts.

    delete question legality or emissions discussions!!! Is it possible to delete the DPF and still retain the factory cats and muffler? If I can't get a DPF for $1000 anymore, then I will have to look into a delete. The local dealer told me they have 1 for $1420(-$200 core), and they don't know when...

    Rebuilt DPF

    I have been researching replacing the DPF. It seems that the cheaper rebuilt DPF available through VW is NLA. Is this true? ECS Tuning still has a listing, ID Parts has a listing, but all the other dealer sites says NLA. I called the local parts dept. They said NLA. Donald

    Radio swap

    Is there any programming to be done when swapping identical radios?(RCD510) Obviously the Sirius receiver number needs to be given to Sirius, but what about other features? The reason I ask is, the dealer exchange includes installation and programming for $600. The service writer said that...
