- Yep, been to TDIclub etc.IMO their world revolves around the TDI (as it should, it is the website addy
) I've found some other sites that cater to the pre-TDI VW diesels and there seems to be a wealth of info there - vwdieselparts
- Not afraid of them at all as daily drivers, AS LONG AS I HAVE TWO!
One to fall back on - just in case.......
- It's an ECO, no doubt about it. It's got all the pieces, dual fans etc. I need to do a Carfax on it, but as of right now everything about it points to it being a local car. My other - the '86 - has been a local car since new with my dad even knowing the original owner.
- you hit the nail on the head - why I've never posted there though I do think I signed up, I think I did. Some, not all, not even most, TDI owners have a bit of smugness about them when it comes to the older VW diesels.
I do an assortment of one & two day classes where I normally do an icebreaker of asking how far people drive to work and then I tell them I do 46 miles one way. It's great at getting people to come out of their shell and super at putting them in a relaxed mode. A few weeks ago in one of my classes I had a girl (these are adults, mid 20's normally) that said she doesn't care about mileage cause she has a hybrid. I almost fell out!! I then asked if she saw the South Park episode on hybrids, she said she doesn't watch TV. The young guys knew exactly what I was talking about. The absolute super-duper diehard TDI guys have that same hybrid smugness - once again, not all have it
