Just bought a 2004 Jetta Wagon TDI and love it so far.
While I don't plan on doing any performance mods yet I would like to do a few things pretty soon:

1)I need another key/fob. They are pretty cheap but I'm not sure if they have to be programmed by the dealer or if I can do it myself.

2)I need some floor mats, will check the auto parts store but open to suggestions for a set that will fit well.

3)The leather is in good shape but I am thinking of conditioning it and would like to hear opinions on what product to use.

Virgin to the TDI world

Hi There,
I have just purchased a 2003 Golf GTTDI 130HP with 133k on the clockabout three weeks ago. There is a little work to be done to her but I just love it .But I have noticed in the last week that its showing signs of LIMP MODE . Now after reading the section on LIMP MODE on the the website , I brought it out for a hard drive to clear out the turbo ,which it seemed to cure that was about a week ago but yesterday it came back.
I drove it today and no sign of it but it only seems to appear when I put it into six gear at 60mph.
I was just wondering if anybody else had the same problem and how did they rectify it in the end.

Any suggestions would be helpful.
