Besides free and it makes heat, no reason at all honestly.

Almost 6 quarts of oil does take a long time to heat up, even our TSI hardly gets the oil up to temp (190F) on my 7 mile drive to work in the summer.

My concern is that insulation and plastic cover over the aluminum pan itself.

I'll trim some padding out and snake the leads through, but will the heat upset the plastic or foam?

Maybe I'll bench test it if I get time and see what I end up with. It can always be added later easily.

Full clutch/brake fluid flush and Euro short shifter install. Wanted to get rid of that stock fluid that just sat around in the car for over a year.

Any tips on removing the shift lever? I tried to get it off one time and it seemed stuck and would barely budge.

Lightly tap with a hammer while pulling up. It will give eventually!

Nice! I will be interested in what kind of fuel mileage hit you're going to take and I wish that we weren't required to have front license plates here in MD...

hopefully the oil heater is thermostatically controlled so it doesn't heat the oil any more than NOT of 190-250F.

To make you feel better some "GTI/R bois" track their cars and routinely see 260F oil temps with their plastic TSI engine pans, you may be over cautious.

Well I don't drive to save fuel, but so far on highway I noticed a increase of 1L/100km. Basket empty. I removed it to seal the joint with caulk.
