Just being cautious here. I want to make sure it's okay/safe to use my tdi to jump my gti.

I'm going to be trying to get the car back up & running pretty quickly tomorrow so a guy can come look at it.. need to get a bumper on, seats in, and the car started, brakes cleaned up, car cleaned, and maybe the passenger fender replaced. Nothing like the last-minute to get you motivated ;)

possibly... i would need to check.

There should be zero prob with jumping another car with your emmkay 5.5.

I'll be running around tomorrow looking for parts.. right now I'd just be happy to get something in decent shape that I can put back in/on the car

If its your own car then YES!

I was going to say NO but then read it was your own car!
When I worked at the grocery store stupid people would always need their cars jump started so I would do it to get me out of the store.
I then went thru the early generation of the Optima batteries like ever 3-6 months so I stopped helping them out.

So now my outlook on it is that I will only help hot chicks! Anyone else.....too bad! .....hehe
