    This is with the 93oct, valet, and something else. 3 extras. $773. The guy told me the sale was just the 3 extra programs for free, not a pick and choose type of thing. Is this correct? And what about the price? Reasonable? I would have to bring it there in about an hour to get the sale so I...

    I just had an oil pump put in my 1.8 at a cost of $800 and the dealer told me that the insurance plan I had doesn't pay the tax so on top of the $100 deductable they added on about $65 in tax. Is this right?

    Is VW smoking crack? I finally got my airbag fault code checked at the stealership and the diagnosis was to replace the drive side airbag. Can I safely replace this with a used unit myself? The receipt states "Drivers airbag faulty CD-50" Does not look like an error code to me.... Thoughts...

    Finally got my car on the road after 4 months on my parents driveway. Anyway it's a 2001 1.9TDI PD 100. When I went to tax it I thought the Tax band was £110 as the manual from VW that came with it states that the Co2/KM is 149, on the V5 it says 151. This according to the post office means that...
