    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    Took my 2012 TDI into an indy VW/Audi shop here in Austin, Texas for a post buy inspection a few months after purchasing the vehicle. They found a leak in the rear main seal as well as seepage in the rear differential output flange. After a quick search I realized both of these items were...
  2. Porsche 911 Turbo design 22” wheels on Black VW Touareg

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    Starting a thread to see how many folks upgrade the size and look of their Tregs by changing the wheels. I just got a set of 22” 911 Turbo design wheels and absolutely love the way the car looks. It also raised the height of the ride a bit, so it feels different. Just got it done today so still...
  3. Intake Boot on Turbo leaking

    New Member Introductions
    New to the group. I am looking at a 2012 TDI, which has a 4/48 VW Emissions warranty. Says it covers the turbo, and upon pre-purchase inspection, the mech said it has a "Turbo boot" oil leak at the intake. Would this be covered? Cost to fix if not? Thanks so much. Everything else is good on...
  4. Underboost / P0299 / Adaptation of new turbocharger

    Engine, Transmission and Exhaust
    I've just had a new turbocharger installed into my 2008 Touareg R5 TDI. The old one was replaced, because it triggered a CEL and went into limp mode. The dealership told me the turbo needed to be replaced - but I'm not sure any more whether that was really the case. The fault code was "P0299 -...
