    The VWWCA forum diesel section contains a lot of information. Its also an area of VWWCA that has grown rapidly in recent years, and even in recent months due to the increasing popularity of the new VW diesel models.

    The chances are, if you're a new VW diesel owner and you have a specific question, that it may already have been discussed - so, to help you on your way, have a look at -

    - which contains an index of useful, popular and informative threads. Also be sure to check out the -

    - that contains a lot more generally useful information. A quick look can answer many a basic question or query, and is much faster than waiting for a response! Finally, remember to use the forum search tool.
