I ordered the Scan Gauge II on the link in the forum right above.

Yes, I wish (and I have thought about it) of swapping my TDI motor into a 90s or 2000s Honda accord or civic. When was the last time you heard of a Honda or Toyota that had inoperable doors or windows? I never have.

The offshore replacement parts for Passats are even sh.ttier than the stock parts or I would just fix these things. The guy I bought my car from in 2008 even told me that the only time everything worked in the car was right now on my test drive, when he fixed everything just to sell it.

Those German engineers: "why make a part in metal like every other car company when we can over Engineer it and make in plastic that will fall apart in 10 years?"
