      havent tackled the headlights yet - on the TO-DO list but started a little interior mod. always felt the s-tronic/dsg was so out of place in comparison to the rest of the interior with the atrocious shifter.

      so a few pics of what ive done tonight so far (note to self, turn off the flash ):








      looked somewhat like this:



      yes, i know its not a manual and its the world's biggest dead pedal, but atleast the interior looks tons better, to me atleast

      Oil Filter - You need just one



      I rolled the car up on a stepped ramp and setup the Griots Garage oil extractor.


      Remove the underbody plastic panel by removing the T25, T30 and T40 screws. Note the location of the drain plug at the back of the oil pan and the oil filter housing (black with a 6mm allen bolt) in the front.


      I can usually extract 5 quarts from the dipstick tube using the extractor. I like this approach as it does not fill up the pan under the car. You can also just do all the draining from under the car.


      19mm socket for the oil pan drain bolt for the oil. Then the 6mm allen key for draining the oil filter housing - this bolt is then screwed back in. Lastly, the 36mm oil filter socket (or a 36mm axle socket will work) to unbolt the oil filter housing and switch the filter and screw it back in. Just snog and not nuts as that is a plastic housing. New O-ring comes with the filter.


      Put everything back together under the car and fill the engine with fresh oil - I like Castrol Syntec/Edge 5w40 (VW 502 00 rated).

      Roll the car onto level ground and start it up. Let it idle for a couple of minutes and then shut off. Wait for 2-4 minutes and check level - top off if needed.

      I've got some instructions for removing the center console trim to get access to the shift knob.

      Now, if you get a fix-it-ticket for no-front-plate, the right thing to do is permanently affix the missing plate to your car. This way redlight cameras and or speed cameras can accurately identify you and issue you a citation. We all want to make sure that happens so we can operate within the confines of the laws which were created for our safety and the safety of our fellow motorists.

      Some people who have european plates, or no plates and therefore no extra holes in the front plate filler piece. The other option, if you operate on a slightly mischievous level is to "front it" like so:

      1. buy a pack of double sided emblem tape
      2. tape the license plate in the frame,
      3. buy two 1/2" flathead sheet metal screws and pop them through the top two holes
      4. on the backside of the plate stick on two pieces of emblem tape with pilot holes punched into them to grab the threads on the plate and give the appearance of being bolted-up to the grille of the car
      5. next strategically place larger pieces of the double-sided emblem tape to the back of your license plate and stick it on moments before getting your ticket signed off at the local friendly police department.
      6. tear that f'n thing off within 60 seconds of pulling out of the PD parking lot. Home free, now enjoy your clean screw hole free front-end.

      Of course I personally would never do this, because I have a healthy respect for the law and understand that they are just doing their job. I would never devise such a devious and unlawful work-around such as this, and you should not either.

      Which bolts? The ones that screw the throttle onto the intake manifold, more specifically the two on the engine block side? If so, I use a long T30 socket or a short length T30 with short extensions.

      Any how to guides on the other fluids as far as what to change when and how? I'm interested in changing DSG fluid, Haldex and rear diff? Am I missing any other drive train fluids other than engine oil with those 3?

      Any good guides would be helpful. I did some googling around and didn't find a lot of info. I found a lot of DSG fluid kits for sale, I see where the filter is and how to drain it, but I have no clue where to fill it.

      EDIT: Here is a good how to on the DSG fluid change. This appears to be the same setup I have in my 2011 TT.. http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=169356
