What happened to require the powertrain be replaced?
Long Story Short:

VW Dealership A "replaced" a rear main seal under warranty.

VW Dealership B diagnoses and repairs damages from incorrectly reassembled drive train (by dealership A). Brand new bottom end was imported to complete repairs.

Absolutely! I'm fairly new to the VW TDI world and from what I understand these type of repairs are far and few between (if any). The Porsche Master Tech (Dealership B) who diagnosed and performed the final repairs said he's never in his career had to replace a TDI bottom end this early. Seems to be a rare case.

Nice TDI. What are the specs on the rims? Thanks....
Tire size: 285/35/R22.

These (big) rims came with the Touareg when I purchased it. I also I have spare set of tires that still have good tread life on them. VW mounted and balanced the tires for me a few months ago. Zero steering vibration at any speed!
