Only one headlight was fixed due to a broken tab but the works was perfect, no issues at all with any headlight. Again I will post it on the classifieds and VWvortex.

Hey, are any of you guys still holding on to your MK5 or even MK6 TDI's waiting to turn in for buy back that have clean wheels? I hit a BIG pothole (bent wheel) on my way back from KC and apparently VW does not make the 17in Goal wheel in silver (or anthracite) anymore. SO, I'm looking for either 1 clean 17in Goal wheel for my car OR might even entertain a full set of wheels. :(

Go back to the pothole, take picture, document the time/place of the incident and submit to the city. I did so with Missouri DOT and will be reimbursed for costs, just not the time, dealing with all this madness. :mad:

Got a 2003 Golf TDI. Finally got one with an ALH. Few minor dings and a little rust, small oil leak on the oil cooler, but nothing too serious. Runs like a champ so far. I'm pretty satisfied. 2 door, and a manual. Glad I learned to drive stick so quickly on the old 86.

The 09 is going back to VW on the 24th. Weird electrical problems with the no. 1 injector + the DSG clunking issue I've had for a while pushed it to that decision..

CR timing belts

I have 2 CR's that need timing belts soon. Can anyone recommend someone or a shop in the Omaha area that can reliably do this? Usually take to Alex in Sioux Falls, but my children are driving them and live in Omaha. I would like do the belts and water pumps and gift them so I don't have to pay insurance anymore.

New to tdi p0402 light

I just recently acquired a 2002 golf tdi. It has a check engine light for p0402. I have removed the egi and cleaned it. Drove 50 miles and same code popped up. I am also getting a diesel exhaust fumes in the cabin when I am stopped. Could this be part of the same issue?

Hi everyone! Haven't posted in bit but have made some changes (after the hail storm nearly totaled my 09 sedan. Been busy getting my new stop sale GSW TDI fixed up to my liking and also working on some things in the shop.

So my new car is stop sale GSW S TDI that had 80 miles on it and Baxter Westroads took good care of it and me on the sale. So far I've....

-Tint all the way around 54/20/20 (GP Customs in Lincoln)
- Clear shield front end and rear bumper ledge
- Upgrade ALL interior lights to DeAuto LED's (Lifetime warranty and killer cust. service)
- Upgraded my tail & reverse lights to DeAuto LED (recoded them to utilize the whole light for brake lights)
- Added rear side spoilers
- Swapped my 17in Goals from my Jetta to the wagen
- Swapped full size spare from my Jetta to the wagen
- Swapped big battery from my Jetta to the wagen
- Hauled stuff in my wagen ?
- **Ordered H&R Sport springs and wheels for next spring

I absolutely love the GSW! Its what I was going to buy next (all be it used) after my oldest started to drive but plans changed. Now I get to buy a proper manual for the daughter. Ha ha

Now, shop things... We got some Quick Jacks (holy wowza! talk about revolutionizing our work) to makes lifting cars, no matter the ride height, up down OR just keep up to work on, a breeze!

We also just did a Cam and TB service on a 06 BRM with one of FranksTDI kits. After 200k the cam was pretty trashed, scarred, worn, caps were beat to $hit. We went with Frank's re-profiled BEW cam kit with custom bearing shells and man, it's well worth it. Frank is super responsive when questions came up, install and break-in guidance were very comprehensive and the car is running great now.

Hope you all are good, surely will see you around. ?

Not much going here, right.
Well... if you'd get another TDI maybe we could get more going on.... :D:D

Seriously though, I do have a set of like new Conti-Pro Contacts off my GSW for sale AND a 8 out 10 (on the clean scale) set of 17in Goals WITH good Conti-Pure Contacts for sale if anyone local needs them.

PM for info as I'm not sure if I can post for sale ads in the open forum.

Once the snow stops, I got me some fancy wheels and H&R Springs to go on. :)

Just moved back to Omaha after 10 years away. Got an 06 TDI with 169k, got it a year ago and don't know the history of what's been done to it. Any recommendations on shops to get the EGR removed (for off road only of course/already got the plates) and likely cam/timing belt swap?

Welcome back to the O TOWN! [emoji41] We have done a cam upgrade and tb change among other things. Shop is in Raymond though. Check out our FB page, there are some shots of the Frank's TDI (highly highly recommend his reprofiled BEW cam kit) grade we did for a customer. We do other things as well if needed and you'll see examples on the page.

Cross posting since I don't think anyone else in here has MK7.

We got my H&R Sports installed this week and if I didn't post after the wheel install, those went on about a week ago.

Now properly ready for summer. [emoji41]

Bump for a set of 4 5x112 steel rims in excellent condition that I forgot I had in storage along with some General AltiMAX Arctic tires with two Minnesota winters on them. I'd like them to go to Club members before I list them on Craigslist.

Just wanted to bump this and say HEY!! Still TDI'ing it around town and to/from Lincoln. Passed my GSW on to the wife and got me a MK6 Golf TDI 6MT. :D Still wrenching on TDI's for local peeps in Lincoln/Omaha as well. Well maintained TDI with extended warranty should last for a very very very long time.

Hope you all are well and happy dieseling out there!
