I am new to this site, so hello! I just aquired a 2005 Passat TDI. It is my 2nd TDI car- first beind a 2006 Jetta TDI DSG car. Traded the Jetta when my twins were born, and have missed it sorely since. I drive 250 miles one way(I work 7 days on/7days off offshore out of Louisianna), and TDI's are the perfect car for my type of commute. I was on a couple of other VW/TDI boards when I had the Jetta- just found this one...look forward to spending some time here.
