it had cloth interior but the 8" glass, non nav display with apple car play, impressive for a 2017 or 2018.

2010 JSW TDI silver and black. 2017 Ram Ecodiesel dark red with brown and beige interior.
I'd consider that as a replacement for the JSW, when that time comes. I think I still have about 18 months on the extended warranty.

one of a kind wundermachine, If the V6 TDI were complicated can't imagin the biturbo units are any simpler. Closest thing on the market these days is prob the new A6 Avant (RS6?;)) or V90, sadly both with the wrong type of fuel.
They don't look much more complicated than the normal single turbo TDI. Obviously there's some differences and whatnot. There's a few people running CUAA long block with 2260 type turbos on them.

I can't imagine the cost of breaking anything and having replacements shipped over during Europe in war and inflationary crisis.

I love the idea. But the transverse AWD systems are weak.

I believe it was even announced as such in 2014 - coming to America w/ Diesel 2.0.
I remember an article with VWoA CEO mentioning the Alltrack before dieselgate and he clearly stated no TDI was even thought of due to the no room for DEF system, wasn't even contemplated, nada.

MK7 GTI, looking to own first TDI
We were also supposed to get the Atlas with a diesel hybrid engine. oh well
I always thought it was weird diesel hybrids weren’t already a thing - best of both worlds. But I guess it’s likely due to the public perception of diesel being dirty “muddying” the clean image of hybrid technology.

They're saving that for more mileage requirements when that goes up they'll unleash disposable diesel IC hybrids that won't last.

Yep a genius at that! That even made better MPG’s as well on highway over Q5.
