    Not sure if this question is been already asked, if so apologize, since I couldn't find any info on this.

    Just curious on what they are doing with our TDIs brought back.

    1. Sitting somewhere in open lot, letting it rot.
    2. Exported to elsewhere
    3. Refitting it with 2.0 TSI and resold as CPO ?

    I spoke to someone at the dealer, but they don't seem to be revealing this info...

    Thanks,
    Ravi.

    To answer your questions:
    1. Sitting somewhere in open lot, letting it rot.
      1. Yes, in most cases; at least for a while until they are moved to final resting places or fixed. Many of the older/higher mileage ones will be crushed and sold as scrap.
    2. Exported to elsewhere
      1. VW is not allowed to export any diesel settlement vehicle, unless it has already been "fixed" through the EPA approved method
    3. Refitting it with 2.0 TSI and resold as CPO ?
      1. Not going to happen. Many in good condition/low mileage will be fixed once the fix is approved, and at that point resold.
    Hope that helps. ;)

    Yeah, #3 is way too cost prohibitive.

    So basically, #1, then #2 or sold as used.
