    Help For A Caravelle First-timer

    Hi, I'm posting hoping to get some advice on Caravelles. It looks like we definitely want a DSG box, but other choices are up in the air. I've read that the biturbo engines get broken by EGR valve failures, is this the common feeling? I've also read that retrofitting options is difficult and...
