• The TDIClub classifieds section is a heavily trafficked section of the forum that encompasses want-to-buy (WTB) and for-sale (FS) threads for the entire world. Due to the demanding nature and fast pace of this section, it is imperative that you know and understand the rules. It is also important to remember that this is the only parts classifieds section.

    Cross-posting and posting classifieds in the regional sections (except the dedicated thread in Ontario) is not permitted.

    Multiple items should be sold in one thread. Make sure to provide a description for all items in your post along with pictures and prices. If you start multiple threads with individual items, they will be locked or combined at the discretion of the moderators.

    Here is a quick outline of the classifieds section rules. If you don't follow these rules, you subject yourself to thread deletion, thread combination, infractions, or posting privilege revocation.

    Thread titles:
    • Put FS or WTB in your thread title. This will let other users know if you are selling or buying.
    • Briefly describe what you are selling. Thread titles have limited space. Be as descriptive, yet succinct, as possible.
    • Put your location in the title.
    • If space allows, put your price in the title

    Title example (single item): "FS: 2004 Mk4/BEW cylinder head - Portland, OR - $500"
    Title example (multiple items): "FS: MK6 fog lights, front bumper, headlights, grill - Detroit, MI"
    Title example (car part-out): "FS: Mk3 Jetta parting out engine & interior - Dallas, TX"

    Thread text descriptions and pictures:
    • All for-sale threads must include pictures of the items that you are selling. One picture is sufficient, but multiple pictures with different angles will help buyers. A picture is worth a thousand words. If you don't know how to post pictures on TDIClub, see this thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=286691
    • All for-sale threads must include a description. We don't charge per-word, so be as descriptive as possible. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for buyers.
    • All for-sale threads must include a price. Auctions and bidding are not allowed. If you want to auction something off, use eBay.
    No picture, no price, NO SALE!

    Thread maintenance/updates/bumps:
    • When you sell something, update your thread with "SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title.
    • If you have multiple items for sale, update your thread as each item has been sold. When everything has been sold, updated the thread with "ALL ITEMS SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title when all items have been sold.
    • If you bump your thread, please delete old bumps by clicking on EDIT and then deleting the old bump. This will reduce clutter in your thread and make it easier to read. It also makes you look less desperate.
    • If you drop your price, please update your first post in addition to posting the new price. If you would like the thread title changed, click on the report post icon and let a moderator know what you would like the title changed to.

    Moderator intervention and infraction points:
    Moderators will be monitoring the classifieds section. If a moderator determines that you have not been following the rules listed above, corrections will be made and infraction points will be assessed to your account.

    What is an infraction point? Simple - it's a system of keeping track of user behavior. A moderator can assign a point value based on the severity of the infraction, as well as an expiration date on the points assessed. If you accumulate a certain number of points, the system will auto-ban you for a predefined amount of time. The more points you accumulate, the longer your ban period will be.

    One example of points is as follows: multiple threads will be combined into a single thread, with the number of infraction points assessed corresponding to the number of threads merged. If we merge four threads into one, then you will be assessed four points that expire in 30 days. When you reach five points, the system will auto-ban you for one day.*

    *This is an example based on the current infraction system structure. We reserve the right to modify the infraction system at any time without notice or updates to this announcement.

    Thank you for your cooperation, and good luck with your sales and searches! :)

Contact a tesla owner on tesla forums I got a few offers from them to buy it but they pay about 600$ for it and that's what they usually want. For a 99$ part...

Tesla won't sell one to you directly since they only have enough for themselves (I think they bought bosals remaining stock before they stopped making it.) I talked to the engineer at bosal who designed it they had issues with it which is why it got canceled.

The CHevy SSR/HHR also use it.

I know this is an old lost but let me shoot. So, I have a westfalia tow bar with swan neck on my MKVI golf. Against my “better” judgement, I bought the 2” bosal adapter in the hopes I could make the relationship work. I was wrong. I’m still hopeful though. I have two options:
1- sell the bosal ($350 incl shipping - and that’s at a loss - obo).
2 - make it work with the westfalia by having a friend machine it.

It’s really not about the sale, but I’m willing to sell it. Will have good pics in daylight. What say you fellow TDI-ers?

I would sell it and Fab an adapter from off the shelf reciever adapters and another swan neck made for your hitch. Either way you're cutting the mount part off of something might as well be something cheaper (the swan neck is cheaper).

Micah Thanks for the offer sorry haven't been on since my TDI timing belt blew I did find an adapter myself as well already.

I'm stupid because I bought a Westy hitch for the Audi we have as well and thought the adapter would work but found out like you it doesn't But didn't matter too much since we don't tow with the audi much. Only while the TDI was down.

Thank you for the quick reply. I thought that might be the case. I take consolation in the fact that I’m not the only one who’s tried that (haha). I guess I’m going fishing for some parts and welding gear.

They are not all the same- see the thread below. Both Westy and Bosal changed the design slightly over the years...
