      Working out a $200 smog check for Saturday and until then tracking my ECS goodies as they travel from Ohio. Saturday night should be a night full of MKVI maintenance and beer drinking. Anyone who wants to join in feel free to stop by.

      BOT: Tomorrow I'll be changing the oil. At 25k now and the 10k intervals never sat well with me. Every 5k sits better with me.

      I'll be there. If I leave now I should get there in time for some afternoon In-N-Out burger.

      I do ~5K on my car. 3K is overkill and 10K is stupid. New BMWs are 15K intervals...

      Not even kidding. House is always open to fellow dubbers. Must be a non-smoker and a beer drinker though. Oh and no vegetarians.

      Also going through color swatches for my wheel powder coating.

      Most BMW's are. My E46 is 15k via the dash computer, but it "adapts" to your driving style. Mine sees track time fairly regularly, so the actual computer interval is around 7-8k. Still change it every 5k though with dealer oil and filter, just like my Mk.6.

      But yeah, 3k is overkill with VW 504spec synthetic oil and OE filter.

      At least it's not a Leaf, which is just a fishlike body on a Versa frame with an electric motor.



      But thanks for your service.
