anybody else get the letter from VW about the recall for 1.8T (gasser) motors? Apparently there is excessive sludge buildup, causing premature failures (turbo, engine, etc).  I had a passat that was included, so i got the letter.

I'm sending this email because many of us are driving turbo'ed vw (diesels and some gassers i suppose) and this may be noteworthy. 

I'll try to get the letter scanned and posted in the files (or p-mailed) shortly.
