      lol I've noticed, getting used to the DSG is very different. I've never owned an automatic before, and I've never had anything newer than a 2001... haha this car does so much!!

      Lololololol no I don't think I'll be doing pink wheels. I'm thinking gold or polished actually. and I am actually looking into the krytox. How much is that anyways? The older forums say around $100? :O

      Not really sure about the price but there is a GM part that's the same product and is about $40 if I recall correctly.

      Here's a thread for you.

      I have a white 2008 3.2 EOS with 64K miles. I'm sure we will see the same problems. I just "sealed the a frame plastic tubes that were causing a water leak on my left knee. Also, the first thing I did was get a new wheel alignment with the top down and remove all of the camber from the rear. The car sit "square" now and does not look like the rear shocks are broken. You will need to rotate your tires every 3-5000 miles unless you like road noise and want to replace them each year. Krytox will be your friend. Britax baby seats fit great in the back. I replaced all the brake pads with new ceramic pads to get rid of brake dust. I also had the transmission flushed before I bought it at 59k. The flush at the dealer is ~$400.

      That doesn't sound so bad just regular maintenance... Now the transmission flush... Is that something a regular mechanic can do? Oh! And I went to my dealer to buy the krytox today and I was told OH YOU DON'T NEED THAT STUFF! Just go get some silicone spray and spray the stuff. I was like ummm. No thank you. I'll get you the part number.

      My dealership told me just to use silicone also. I broke out the manual and had to show the Shop manager that is said NO SILICONE!!!. I made them give me a bottle of krytox at no charge. Morons!!!!!

      I would definitely have the DSG service done by a dealership. If it's not done at 40k intervals, they will not honor any warranty on the DSG. It does run about $400.

      That's very cool. Congrats!

      I always take any used VW to my mechanic (since '88) asap regardless if it is under warranty or not. Carfax's and such just don't always tell the whole story. It seems like you have an owner's manual with it and most questions addressed. Good luck.
      Now: '74 Thing Acapulco ... '13 Tiguan S ... '09 Eos Komfort ... '02 Golf GLS TDI
      Past: '97 Jetta GT ... '02 Passat ... '02 Cabrio GLX ... '71 Super Beetle ... '93 EuroVan MV Westy ... '86 Jetta GLI ... '81 Pickup LX ... '85 Vanagon
      Future: oh, the possibilities ...
