today, our trusty 2010 A3 TDI went back to the dealership to be bought back because of it cheating emissions

and I am very sad.

This was my dads 25th anniversary present. We bought her brand spanking new 8 years ago, and in that time we have put on 230k km. 4 or 5 sets of tires, a set of brakes, and a lot of diesel. She served us well the little thing. She hauled my ass to and from thunder bay 8 times, a 2500km trip each time. She brought me down to north Carolina whilst towing ebay and a CBR. took my dad to and from work for 8 years. over all a fantastic little machine. never let us down ONCE.! all of the german reliability horror stories? none of that with us. I had the EGR flap go twice, and a emissions sensor once. oh, and a flat tire. that was the extend of our issues.

quibles? few and far between. could have used more power or AWD. but meh. She was a work horse, dutifully getting the job done day in and out.

Farewell Herr TDI. you will be dearly missed.
