LOL, sorry guys about sharing a couple of, well, thoughts...

VW's really do work good even if most wires hang out, lots of these are for stuff that is actually extra(US market). But, a headache no matter...

Also, TDI! WOW, hope someone that is patient got this Passat.
Once it runs well, should be about 50 MPG, lots more if a few mods r done...
