Took my car in to the dealer for the courtesy checkup. They updated the software on the climate control unit supposedly. Everything else checked out.
I need to remember to ask them to not wash it when I take it in for the oil change. Swirl marks galore.
Waxed it when I got home.

Put on a HazMat suit and use a set of long reach tongs to pick up the used filter and place it in a chemically resistant bag. Seal the bag and suspend in the middle of a 5 gallon bucket using fishing line. Mix up concrete, pour it in and let it cure. Wrap the resulting concrete in plastic and take to the local hazardous waste location and pay any associated fees...
...of course I would just skip all of that and throw the damn thing in the garbage can (might let it sit outside for a bit so the gas would evaporate if I was worried about it)."
Had me rolling so I thought I'd share.
Thanks again for the headlights Branman, I couldn't be more psyched to have them in!
Washed it and polished the black crap off the exhaust tips for the first time in my ownership. Then spent the rest of my time and attention on the Miata.
Update: Disconnected the Soundaktor. Nice change. Makes me want a more characterful exhaust now though.

Took me about 15 minutes from hood up, to hood down.
I cleaned my brand new GTI for the first time.
APR STAGE 2, APR CARBONIO STAGE 1&2,EUROJET TBE, NEW SOUTH VENT BOOST GAUGE, COLOR MATCHED SIDE MARKERS, EUROCUP HOLDER, SIGMA SIX SHORT SHIFT.
TO BE INSTALLED:
SOUTH BEND STAGE TWO ENDURANCE CLUTCH, APR K04
Between yesterday and today I upgraded my RNS-510 + Dynaudio system
Audison bit.ten 5CH DSP under the passenger seat
Arc audio XDi80.4 class D amp (120W x 4 CH into 2 ohms, and so tiny)
Amp is feeding 2x Dynaudio x250 passive crossovers for the front stage (both nestled under the drivers seat along with the amp), and the amp also feeds directly to the 2 rear bass speakers (rear tweets disconnected)
Done zero tuning, just enough to see how amazingly versatile the bit.ten is. But with EQ (finally!) flat and no delays, the stock dynaudio speakers just sound 100% better
Now I just need to eliminate that high pitched whine that follows the RPMs
