I'll go first:

Install two new front tires and get aligned
Timing belt and all rollers (overdue by 4K miles)
Charge AC- figure out what is going on?
Replace rear brake proportioning valve that is leaking fluid like a sieve
Get to the bottom of code P00500
Remove cracked windshield to have rust media blasted & new dealer window installed.
Locate front GLX filler lenses and one foglight to replace broken ones
Polish headlight lenses again
Register & transfer old vanity plate from former B5.5 and get inspected (fingers crossed)
Figure out why trunk light no longer works.
Vacuum and clean car
Granted I can let some of this stuff slide, especially the last one if need be
Wow Dave...that's a ton of stuff. Good luck! Good thing the car isn't loaded up with tools.
Ohio to California transplant and loving it!
2k Beetle, Batik Blue, 5sp., Stage 3 TDtune, front knuckle upgrade (from 1.8T), Seat Cupra R rear axle bushings (I rather like tasteful and discreet upgrades)
I'm a ginger. You've been warned.
