What did you do to your MKIV today?
 
There are other similar threads for the B4s, the MK6s and MK7s, but have never seen one for the MKIVs... so I thought I might as well start one. :)

So what did I do to my MKIV Jetta today?

Switched over from my summer tires to my winter tires with black steelies.

Ready for the snow now.:rolleyes:

I'm trying to make it to December before I put my winters on...lol. I picked up a second set of 08-10 City Golf Alloys this fall, so now I have two identical sets...one for my summers, and one for my winters.

Today, all I did was check and re-tighten all of my lug bolts.:D

Just used my Frostheater for the first time this morning. It wasn't super cold (31), but it had defrosted a nice spot on the windshield. Started up with a good amount of heat in the car. I tried it the night before, but didn't have my fancy digital timer set correctly:(. Still fired right up at 20 degrees.

I have gone through the various electrical connectors with spray contact cleaner as I do other stuff on the car. When I installed the FH, I started going through them and using some D100 Deoxit on them. I did the easy one's as it was pretty cold when I installed the FH.

Thankfully, all I had to do was put fuel in it today! Otherwise it has been a fun year: details in my signature.

Replaced the TB on the rebuild engine out of the car. Sure makes it easy!
This used engine from Dutch Auto Parts has a heated oil pan. Anyone had one ?

This is the third day that I have used my Frostheater. Not to cold but I get a kick out of using it. I was like a giddy schoolgirl the first time I plugged it in last week. :D

If you can change the title of the thread from Today to Lately, I would have something to contribute.

Drove it. I do all maintence items during September. I don't plan on doing anything more 'till spring. I do keep a short set of tools, emergency heater, etc onboard. . . just in case.

I don't think anybody will hold you to the "today".

Yeah, the thing gets pretty warm. I'm pretty impressed. Of course now it's back up in the 50's. No complaints though.:D
