They burn oil, so check the dipstick to make sure it even has oil in it. Other than that they're solid as a rock. Sounds like a good deal.

It's getting really hard to get good spin-on filters for the old VW Diesels here in eastern Canada. I've always used Mann filters because of the heavier steel in the can. Does anyone else make a filter of this quality for these engines?
