Extend A Warm Welcom to VW Clean Diesel Owners

Well I would just like to extend a warm welcome to the VW clean diesel owners and you now can join the ranks of the Defender diesel owners in emissions output. Sure your cars may look different than the Defenders but what really matters is the closest you now come to exhaust gas pollutants with Defender owners.

To defender diesel owners we should extend a hand and give them a thumbs up as Defender diesel owners can welcome this group back to the ranks of true dieselness and not some cleaned-up superior form of this fosil fuel.

I am only trying to act as an ambassador on behalf of the defender though I personally am running the much cleaner petrol version, but hey we are an inclusive forum.

I wonder if California is going to kick these cars out as it would only be fair to the treatment any defender diesel owner can expect from CARB.

Been following the VW tdi thing as I was getting close to pulling the trigger before their emissions cheat happened.

Follow this news only thread from Fred's TDI forum http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread...64#post4928164

There is another with a gazillion posts.....

I feel mostly for the 09-14 MY as they already sit on a HPFP grenade thats ready to blow up at a $10k cost.

What I've noticed is how much money VW is putting on the hood of gasser cars and the way used prices are tanking.

I actually went by the VW dealer Friday, as we are selling our '09 Jetta wagon petrol (72k miles, 35mpg city) and they were quite interested in buying it. Why?? They are not permitted to sell any Tdis currently. They can buy them, store them, own them, but not sell them. Funny part is private individuals still can, but what is coming???
Seems to have helped resale price of our petrol, though it could be off from before the whole ordeal raised it's head.
