    Wow, over two years since I've last checked in.

    VW ended up buying back my TDI for ~$3,000 less than I paid for it, despite owning it for 2 years and putting 60,000 miles on it. I replaced it...

    Just a quick update. I check in, but not very frequently. Life has gotten really busy and as of two weeks ago, I am officially Saab-less. I sold the '73 96 to a guy from New Jersey after having it...

    Golf SportWagen is a Golf Estate.

    Here in the US it was recently discovered that VW cheated federal emission tests on all of their 4-cylinder diesels produced between 2009 and 2015. No one knows...

    With the whole VW diesel thing going on right now, it should be interesting to see what happens.

    Not quite 4 months of ownership with my Golf SportWagen and this happens.

    There should be a tag on the driver side A-pillar that can be read from outside the vehicle through the windshield. Also, if you pop the hood there is a tag on the firewall, but I'm not confident...

    I agree on the Mustang, but I've never been a convertible guy. If it's a convertible, it would have to be a big ol' Cadillac, or some vintage Ferrari that is way out of my price range.

    I've been loving my little diesel! It's got a bit more oomph than my dad's Jetta SportWagen had, so now it falls into "regular" car speeds, though it seems even regular cars are quite quick these...

    Did you figure it out?

    I'd double check the battery voltage and follow the battery leads from there. Possibly a disconnected wire somewhere.

    Hey Fellas!

    Well, life has gotten in the way a bit. So much so that it appears I hadn't ventured here in 3~4 months! I'm keeping up with stickers though, so don't worry on that front (still have...

    I don't frequent as much as I should, and I'm a bit slow to get some of the international stickers out, so please bear (bare?) with me!

    Glad your stickers made it!

    It's hard to tell from the pictures, but it doesn't appear you've got the SPG bumpers, and I don't believe you could get an SPG in the United States with a red interior and white paint.

    What do you need help identifying about it?

    I'm no C900 expert, but it looks to be a pretty standard 900 turbo convertible.

    Good luck with the silly California emissions stuff.
