Thumbs up

Replaced both my front wiper blades with VW replacements, absolutely the easiest wiper blades to Re & Re, done in 1 minute flat, ... just press in the little button and off it comes... incredible..

Ended up installing the eurojet engine mount yesterday. Feels so much better now. Will do the trans mount and subframe mount in about a week.




Also replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs and r8 coils. Plugs looked like oem

Yeah I'm getting about 320 miles per tank now with city/highway driving but mostly city. Before I would only get 275 or so. I'll keep monitoring it. I'm at 101k miles right now.

Congrats on the milage increase and interesting that you got 100k miles on the original plugs.

only if you have an aftermarket intake system (or make your own). The intake air filter is contained within the engine cover on our 2.5.
