    Greetings all

    Hello,
    My name is David and I am an American living in Germany but not quite ready to figure out car issues on German forums yet. I hope I can be a part of this forum.

    Back in 2015 I bought a 2005 Touran 1.9 TDI 77kw, Engine code BKC, 7 seats. Back then it had 260,600km it now has 330,00km. Seams to keep on running with a few normal fixes.

    I am not a car guy but am a jack of all/many trades and will fix my car when ever I can to save some money. I've replaced the brake pads in 2016, rear springs in 2017, battery, fuel pump and filter in 2018/2019. So no major expenses so far.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
