"Trade-in" is a nasty word to me. What ever your choice is, sell it yourself and avoid taking it in the shorts from the dealer. They are there to make as much money on trades as possible. Yes it's easy just to give it to them in trade, but like in life, anything that's worthwhile require$ work.

Thats very interesting. Never heard of the VW. TDI out of the Toureg im guessing.

Thing that worries me about the 4bt is emissions here in ontario, unsure how that would be.

Anyways for the hit id take on a trade in, i can easily do the LS swap for way cheaper and would be much happier! Plus i still have my warranty until my financing is up, last thing i want to do is buy a new vechicle again. lol

The old 3.8 has never let me down, have 100 k on it and never had a problem, no oil burning nothing. To be honest im not a fan on aluminum block engines, even though it seems thats how everythings starting to go. Aluminum block = more expensive to fix and if it ever over heats and warps, well then its instantley scrap.

They can be pretty good if not abused. My wife's Mercedes (hypereutectic aluminum, no sleeves) has well over 300,000 miles.
