    My engine code is BGP and I replaced the oil dipstick with the newest part number (which I assume is for the final version of the 2.5L in 2013). Will this Dipstick be accurate or do I need to track down an earlier revision?

    Warning: Long (tl;dr at bottom) This forum doesn’t seem to be as lively as it used to be. But that's time, I guess. This “build” thread will read a lot like a confessional. And in many ways, it is. What I intend for this thread is a transparent, brutally honest account of my Jetta’s history...
