JASONP, I wanted to thank you for posting this 'step by step' procedure for an MK7 TDI oil change. Just this morning I printed it out and brought it to my independent mechanic that I have used for the past 10 years. He lets me look and take note of any work he does while he is doing it. He used plastic tie backs to hold back the disconnected hosing and harness. To minimize greatly the mess when removing the filter cap he cracked it open just enough to have it drain over the side and away from all around it. It took longer but there was very little wipe up afterwards. There is no way the dealership would take the time to do what he did to keep things neat and clean.
I filled with Pennzoil Platinum EURO LX 0W30. What I did note was the my owner's manual for our GSW lists the engine oil capacity with filter to be 5.7 l (or 6 quarts). This is convenient as this particular oil comes in one quart bottles.
