dremd, the TDI comes with a 0.837 fifth, but I swapped in a .681 5th gear set from a 93-2003 Transporter Synchro.

Parts list:
02D 311 361 (32 tooth)
02D 311 158 (47 tooth)
02A 301 215A (gasket)

dancing bunts, yeah, I had a turbo Talon for several years and love the performance, but we are sooooo glad we bought the TDI...

Best tank ever: 72.1 mpg in February 2005, Seattle to S.F.
New personnal best 'all-city' tank June '08 ... 61.9 mpg!
Thanks to 'pulse-n-glide' technique.
