Did an oil change today, holy cow is that OEM steel skid plate heavy and awkward to get back up
Also checked that the wheels weren't about to fall off and that I had some tools and plastic tie strips in the car, along with a snow shovel, jumper cables and other good to have stuff. I never take them out during the winter but you never know
I'm heading up north, almost to the arctic circle, got to be prepared for the worst in case I get stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks, I'll post pics if I see something interesting. Like reindeer or northern lights or something.
Most likely I'll only see trees, trees and more trees!

I'm back home after 5 days, 2240km and 130 litres of diesel = 5.8l/100km.
Here's a few pics:
Arctic circle, the car is facing to the north (in case someone wonders how the sun can reflect from that direction)

On this one you can see over the border to Finland, the river is the border. No fences or walls :

Straight roads and some scenery from the north of Sweden:

Changed the oil and filter in the Haldex unit, found quite a lot of crap, but what is it?
RTV sealant?



Lastly a picture of the peculiar design of the OEM exhaust system. That pinched section is not pretty.

Replaced an indicator bulb, the whole headlamp assembly slides out. It's not hinged, I just put it in like that to be able to snap a pic

Another picture from my "office".
I almost stepped right in to a bear's den today, they aren't in use during summer so no worries

Today I flipped the mounting plate for the led light bar. It does worsen the beam pattern when you have the light near the ground but the light bars aren't that impressive anyway so it'll do for now. The plate is attached with 8 screws, not only those 2 in the picture!
I have also swapped wheels with a fellow Octavian ( ), he took my 17" VRS wheels and I took his 15" stock wheels, they are called Pyxis I think.
I drive a lot on gravel roads and the 15's are much better for the car, a lot more air and rubber between the rim and the road.
Then I have prepared for a flywheel replacement, bought Sachs flywheel, clutch and pressure plate.

Nice. Smart move on swapping the wheels. Give us a side pic next time you post so we can see the new wheels, lol.

So, the pictures will be lost due to Photobuckets new rules, I've deleted my account there. I'll probably fix at least some of them at some point.

Yeah, I guess they made too much money from ads on their free accounts and had to come up with something quickly

Replaced one of the plastic shields under the car, I think it's a part of the rough road package but I'm not sure since our Golf also has them...
It's not a skid plate but it does add protection to the fuel lines and the floor itself from stone chips and such.


I only have one of the pictures that I added through Photobucket left, so here it is:
