I work for one of the biggest dealers in the country, and I don't think anyone is afraid to work on a newer non-NAS truck. Give them a RRC, and that's another story (of course depending on the tech)! We have access to all of the same information that techs in the UK have, we just don't have the special tools, which probably aren't needed. The warehouse in NJ keeps a lot of random diesel parts in stock, including 300 Tdi water pumps for under $100.

I don't have anything nice to say so let's just say our area is "unique" and leave it at that.

I saw that white 110 from VT that was for sale (think it had an eBay listing) driving south on 91 in CT right near the entrance to the Merritt Parkway. My guess it was sold and going to a new home?

On Top Gear season 1 episode 8 ;-) Who needs a cubby, when you could have this! Season 1 has Defenders all over the place, but this was worth mentioning! Chaotically funny!
