      ^ This.

      I have an '07 GTI with a 'K' CAN. I have no issues with my RCD drawing battery. Even when sitting at the airport for a week, battery was fine.

      None at all. It's been 8000 miles since I put on the new VC. Done 1 oil change and haven't had to add a single drop. Zero consumption.

      All I can think of now is either the valve stem seals or the oil control rings. You can still get good compression when the oil control rings are stuck/shot.

      It certainly possible. That was my experience, my plugs looked like that and worse. For me number 3 was soaking wet with oil.

      Yes, precisely. The "stock" location is to locate he jack in the console, running the cable down the center console. Although you can put he jack any place you want, this is where most people put it.

      ^This.

      My manual ('07 GTI) says to do it at 120k. Most dealers and shops will "suggest" around 90-100k.
      My OPINION as well, is that they are just looking to soak you for some money at 60k.

      My '07 has 99,000 miles on it, no issues whatsoever. Fluid changed at 40k, 60k, and 90k.
