just wanted to close this attempt out as the pants are now on eBay (psst no reserve)
putting $750 of the "dealer dollars" towards some snows for the JSW (since we have 2 TDI's one which is still getting free "Carefree" maint)
will spend the other 2x500 bucks on...
don't get me wrong, we love our VW TDIs - we just both hope they don't take the balls off of them AND cut into the mpg with this "fix" -- prior to owning these we had a mk4 wolfsburg jetta sedan and...
here's the corresponding report (for reading) - sadly the people's carmaker is up to it's neck and sinking into deeper isht :fear:
Meanwhile have some salt on those wounds my loyal people! In...
here's one of them now - workin' that VW magic pixie dust on emissions!!!
The whole thing stinks like a straight pipe. I just read the TDI resale value is now down 16%.
[ohno] Volkswagen cancels 2016 diesel line-up in wake of emissions-rigging scandal
and [PO]The Resale Value Of VW Diesels Has Fallen 13% In Two Weeks
and then adding insult to injury! [lol]
KBB claims: 13% decline in value because of this.
I had promised the Mrs. I would not chip/tune the 2011 TDI - if it turns out the "fix" hammers hp/torque/mpg - I'm going to ask her to...
Yeah, I think all MY 2015 VW TDIs and beyond have DEF... seems some DEF vehicles are included in the EPAs call for action, I suppose since they also use the "defeat" during federal...
Thumping this post back life since I'm curious what the TDI owners here have to say about the VW news today, oh boy...
EPA Says Volkswagen Cheated On Emissions
inspiring to say the least. :)
F800 superheros !!!
It's a pretty comfy but very bent knee ride (6' tall 32" inseam) and absolutely geared perfect for back roads. I'd eventually like the pegs a little lower, the bars a little back but am mostly...
yes, I made my 12k service appointment and it was brought up that the switchgear will be done. can't say I've had any problem other than I don't like the feel on the turn signal indicators......
will definitely be looking into this come spring...
TTT since I reposted these at moa here --> http://bmwmoa.org/fleamarket/id/11371/p/1.aspx
glad to see this finally (sort of) sorted
so that Kamui lid I bought... kinda bummed, the shield DOES NOT LOCK an actually has pretty craptastic tolerance (gaps btwn helmet/shield) so that during a head check it pops open (!!!)
hrm, for sure check your email providers spam filter box - they may be going in there. another thing to test that theory is (if you have more than 1 email address) you can try updating your forum...
yeah, I got the boosterplug mostly to resolve stalling at slow(est) speeds and lower speed on/off jerkiness, I haven't had so much issue at higher speeds so can't say for certain it "helps" there. :)...
I'll report I am getting notifications - so the issue seems to be user specific. OC, I'll hit you up with a PM and you let me know if you're at least getting those.
sounds good, recon! keep us posted and if/when I'm at the dealers, I'll see what I can find out.
I don't notice much higher speed difference, it sounds like you may be looking for a more custom tune, even then I'm not sure if you can remove that almost digital FI character that the twin has. ...
Love the idea of a new lamp out front. To be plug & play it would be a matter of the harness and mount points. Let's see if we can dig up pix.
I've been pondering this one from the RnineT
I've not heard if custom levers help, I suppose something adjustable might have it's advantages. I only find the clutch starts to feel heavy when I'm stuck in stop/go traffic. [:D]
hey joe! thanks for the pix.
can't go wrong with a flat black look! [thumb]
I might have to plastidip my cars rims.
