doesn't matter how many owners the car has had, still covered. PM your VIN and I will give you the expiration date

I decided to check my cam week ago.. with 56k miles..
not bad.. I'm lucky!
bought a new one from ECS tuning.. btw, they send me 2 cam followers (they charge on my card twice, of course)
Let me know who needs a new follower for only 45 bucks.. let me know!

How was your cam? I recently took my wife's Apr 1+ to have them look at my fuel pressure code that's been popping up. Was told my car had no warranty extension and I'm at 72k with the original follower. I plan on checking out my follower next week when I get my Allroad all fixed up for my wife to drive. VW really pissed me off... Try to sell me shit my car does not need.

Two dealers near me will never get a cent out of me for repairs since the 1st one took 3 attempts at fixing the leaky valve cover after doing piston rings... 2nd dealer who had the car 3 days trying to get it to code for fuel codes... Told me i need coils without looking at them. Why didn't they look? Cause they would notice valve cover gasket #4 is leaking causing a misfire. VW service is f*** terrible.
