Hey folks,

Picked up my Blue Lagoon 2001 Jetta TDI about two months ago to commute and I have been loving it. She's bone stock for now but have a couple small things in the works. Lots to learn yet on this platform.

Looking to see if there are other BC folk on the forum. I'm in Victoria, BC. Would be nice to see who's out there. Hope to run into some of you and bug you for tips, tricks, and parts! :D

I'm not sure if i count. I work in the Kootenays, usually live in Alberta during the long weekends, and am currently holidaying in Switzerland.

But i have family out on the island, so I'm out there every so often.

Hey guys!

Short time lurker, first time poster.

I picked up a 15 Tdi sportwagen highline in titan grey in August. 69,xxx km on the clock. I wasn't intending on purchasing a car but it was a deal I couldn't pass up.

I've been a Honda guy most of my life, with a smattering of sport bikes and a R32 Nissan Skyline along the way. So this is quite the departure me... But i have no regrets!

Looking forward to learning more about tdi performance and meeting some people!

Bought a 2012 Golf Wagon Highline TDI 42k km a month ago.
So far - new battery, fixed sunroof drains, and got fuel flap open (!) so I can put in my first fuel fill. Also had lift spring kit (IDParts) installed this week.

Damn! What happened to the fuel filler door? And how were you able to fix?
The one on my friend's Mk5 wouldn't close but we were able to access it under the side-carpeting and fix the little servo there. Curious how the Mk6 works.

The Mk6 is a single unit - no actuator rod.

Fuel flap won't open
