Same thing as idparts but they give you a filter and a drain plug for 41.95.

95% of the time IdParts can smoke Amazon in price and value.

Point taken, although it is 51+5 shipping for the 2015+ kits.

The Amazon Prime deal is good because of the free shipping but you still have to buy a filter and plug. I didn't check Amazon prime for those. Last but not least IDParts is a TDI Club forum sponsor which helps keep these forums free. Amazon is not.

And an extra quart. The link provided is only 5 quarts. Amazon is $57 once you add the extra quart (more than ID parts) and you still haven’t bought the filter or plug. Plus ID parts throws in a pair of rubber gloves and a service reminder sticker and you can also get the free EA288 drain tool. No brainer to go ID Parts if you’re trying to save money.

Got it... and agreed.

The free EA288 drain tool is $10, correct? https://www.idparts.com/oil-filter-d...88-p-6949.html Unless I am missing something (again, lol).

Hey Buddy,
It's a pleasure to be on the same page with you for a change lets try and keep it that way

In the past I was buying 5 liter jugs of Ravenol VMP (99% PAO base oil) when they were selling for $25.00 per jug if you bought a case of 4. 100 bucks for 20 liters, and if your order was over 100 bucks they shipped it for free. Now the price has gone way up and when I need 507 spec oil I don't even shop around I just order from IDParts. There shipping is very reasonable. Nuff said.

No problems.

The drain tool became a free option after I ordered a 10k service kit on ID Parts. Iím not sure if that was a limited time thing. Try adding them all to your cart and see if it shows as free. I got two of them that way for free. Donít tell Peter.

When I purchased a winter front for my Passat they had a very limited supply. They double shipped. So I contacted them. They supplied a return ticket for the second one and a free gift certificate (25 bucks) for being honest about the extra item they shipped to me by mistake.

Drat, I just checked and the free deal appears to be over. It’s $19.99 regularly.

It's an interesting discussion, but we should stick to posting deals only. I got in trouble with the moderator last year about going off-topic.
