I just got my early '13 beetle back from getting the fix and would they have had to pull the DPF on my car? The reason I'm asking is I had to reinstall all of my stock stuff and in doing so I had to loosen and lower the front suspension. In doing so I worked at it and got it real close to the point that the wife could not notice anything change in the steering but when we got it back the steering wheel was a little off center and the dealership said we need to schedule for an alignment. I don't know what the differences are in the parts that need to be changed between a non-DEF car and a DEF car but I wouldn't think that they would have to pull the DPF on mine.

Mine is completed on my 15 Golf MT.

Dealer had done about 6 of them before mine and they got it completed in a day. Offered but declined a rental as I live literally a block from the dealer.

Only a short trip with it since but all seems good.

Comes with an oil change and I'm right in between intervals so I'll have it done at no charge at another date.

Default oil change?

If there was mention of a free oil change in my phase 2 invitation letter, I missed it. I need to look at it again. I am at ~1000 miles from 20k oil change (should get a fuel filter too).

I have 4 dealerships in the area, so I will ask before committing. The extended warantee to 160k, or 11 years on the DPF, HPFP, and turbo (all CLEARLY stated in the phase 2 letter) is worth it. I am going for it.
