Thanks for the shout-out, Raf.

Everything is as Raf mentioned. Do what is listed above. If you can't handle it, you can take it to the dealer, or have a reputable german car garage do it (no gas stations, please!).

I was quoted $184 at York VW, it wound up costing me like $160 though after the real totals and a 10% off coupon jigger.

While they did it I went across the street to that restaurant and had breakfast. There were some real cute waitresses. It was good.

Awsome, thanks Carson and Fuzzy. I really hate bringing my car to the dealer because I know they abuse my baby during the test drive. When I brought my car to York VW for warrenty work, i came back with 15 miles over my acutal mileage.
, but other than that I really like York VW and their Serivce department.
