Congrats, definitely a doable job. However, I would have splurged a few bucks for the iabed billet RMS...no special tool to buy either. The factory seal is kind of a joke when you compare it to others.

Nice job! I also have a smaller single car garage and have wondered about taking the trans out with axle stands if needed. I already own the engine support bar and all other required tools, would just pick up the trans jack at HF.

I'm guessing you pulled the trans out of the driver's side wheel well and not straight out of the front end, correct?

I've pulled it out the front both times, you just have to jack up the car high enough to clear it.

Out of driver side yep. Dont think I got it high enough to roll it out the front on the harbor freight trans jack. Its still a tight fit as well have to push the right strut out of the way pretty far. The DSG is pretty big
