All:

Just thought that this recall may affect some of us.

It's for heat shields and fuel lines.

LOL
Hey B5 have you done the turning signal lights on your W8 mirrors like the lastest 2004-5 model have on. I'm thinking of doing that too.

I have not gotten this recall yet. I'm a little surprised: 2003 Tip, and the last time I was under the car I noticed the heat shielding was damaged a little.

anyone else get it?

Just got my notice in the mail today.
It also included the cabin filter seal repair and the drip channel cleaning.

Ya, I just got it yesterday too. Also included the filter seal - good thing, can't park facing up a steep slope or it leaks.

I received my letter yesterday as well. It's a PITA to get to my VW dealership; I'd probably have to take off from work a day since my dealership is about an hour away.

It needs to be done though. I definitely don't want my baby to go up in flames!

I was actually in getting an oil change yesterday and they told me I should be getting a statement about two recalls in the mail sometime soon but that they would just do the recalls while my car was there.....I got home and sure enough there was a statement from VW.....heat shield took them awhile to complete.
