New TDI owner

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.

redhawk, yes it will work. And if you decide you don't need the tools after you're done. you can sell them here, I'm sure someone will buy them. Probably to Tbone, lol.

1. See the mk4 key FAQ article. You can DIY but you must have the right tools.

2. I would get genuine VW or VW-monster rubber floor mats. They are pretty cheap and the peg holes fit perfectly.

3. I've heard good things about Leatherique but never tried it.
Yes, the crankcase is vented back to the intake for emissions. Therefore, there will always be some oil mist that ends up back in the intake.
No, the ULSD fuel is much better at that and the PD engines have an o2 sensor which regulates the EGR valve much better. There will be minor buildup but unless it's as bad as the ALH I wouldn't bother cleaning it.
