Thats' Kamil's car. It's listed in the cars section and here too, I think.

UNF = Acronym for "Universal Noise for F**king"

That's definitely Kamil's 190D. I've ridden in that car (when I bought his last 240D) and it seemed like a good solid driver. Someone will probably get a good deal on eBay. Kamil is very meticulous about maintenance, and he may even be a little "too honest" pointing out the minor flaws in the car. Hope he gets a good price.

Thanks for the kind words Craig. The winner of the auction actually found the car here and it's his first diesel ever!!! He just left my house a few minutes ago and is headed to Chicago where the car will reside for now. I just hope he makes it back in one piece and the car performs the same way that it did for me. Zach, the new owner, seemed really excited and pleased with the purchase...I'm just hoping nothing comes up during the trip.

How is the 240D going? Anything ever break on it yet?

Thanks

chief_apple is a 28 year old guy from Chicago. It is his first diesel purchase so he seemed really excited. I don't know if he has a username for this site but if he doesn't then he's bound to create one soon.

Hi Kamil,

The 240D is doing great, no problems at all, just normal maintenance stuff. My wife drives it every day (not very far, though). It's only got 204K miles now.

Are you still going to school? So, when are you going to get another diesel?

Yep, I'm still at Rutgers dual-majoring in Finance and Business Economics where I am maintaining a 3.95 GPA at the moment. I probably have about a year and a half to go, then I'm off to Wall Street in NYC.

I'll probably be getting another diesel in the future but I probably wont be tinkering on them anymore. For some reason I hate to get dirty, sweaty etc. Ever since my brother graduated from school and became a VW/Audi Technician, he became the family mechanic as he has access to every tool possible. I truly do miss the 190D and the 240D but they seemed to be reminders of my ex-girlfriend so I had to get rid of them....I drive a nice convertible Audi TT which isn't a shabby car for a college kid.

Not my pictures but this is what it looks like:

Well, the buyer left me feedback and it looks like he's extremely happy with his purchase. I'm already missing the diesel, especially when I have to fill up the Audi every 4 days or so.
