Hello all,
Just a hello, new to this place and seems to have a ton of good info. A little on me. I am a 15 year experanced tech that manages and runs a euro repair shop. I loved the tdi's because I have a few customers with over 300k and the car holds up as well as the engine. Yes its the little things that kill ya but I can deal with that. I was so impressed with the cars over time we got a 2000 jetta tdi for my wife. On average she does about 80-100 miles a day and its much more cost effective then her old car that got only 27 mpg (she holds a average of 47 mpg now in a lot of traffic with a lead foot!)

We have replaced the t belt some front end work and brakes all around. Have a driver door latch to be installed when I have the time but all common stuff in my world. Rocking 164K right now that's about 42k in the last year and a half!

I have a 91 gmc 2500 p/u with a 6.2 diesel. Its NA but hope to get a banks turbo kit for soon. Just a baby with 84K miles to date.

I am going to buy a mk4 golf tdi in the near fuiture to drive as a day to day car. The truck gets good mileage for a truck but its still a truck.

Only real prob with the jetta right now is the immo. Very random get a code 1176 (off hand I think its that ). I do my reading and searching and be posting my findings later on.

So for now a HELLO! and see ya soon.

Bill
