I imagine its like a stage 1 chiptune. yes its working harder than it was, and it is giving you a reward (faster cooling of the cavernous interior) for its extra effort but its not working so hard as to be much of a worry. I know from my experience from the ALH, that running a vnt-15 at 21psi isnt a good thing to do, but it will run all day long at 17. this is kinda like that for me in my thinking.

Especially since this is a factory installed option, just not turned on for my region, I will lose exactly zero sleep over this mod. my MFA mileage was unchanged this morning from any previous experiences so I am hopeful to not see any mileage hits, but even if I do, i'd rather be comfortable.

A bottle of Startron diesel additive works as they have a nice long neck. Buy one bottle and then refill with additive of your choice once empty.

I like the 32 oz. bottle as it lasts for months.

Kind of shocked you went for a new ride but then one may want a change after many years/miles with an A4. Biggest adjustment for me going from A4 to NMS Passat was how quiet the NMS is! Know you'll do fine with Schmutz!

thanks. in regards to your last assertion, I say amen.

the past 4 days, between all the cars we own, only my wife's has working AC. The cars she lets me drive should be registered as torture devices on days like the past few we've had.

I would trade in half my fuel economy for some cold air right now. lol.

My 2016 RR came with an adapter that allow "gas size" nozzles on diesel pumps to be used. You can stop by my place and borrow it for a few seconds to add additive. You might also consider getting one of these adapters. I had to use it in Jacksonville, NC.

SCHMTZ got his first 10k miles oil change done at the Dealership today.

New oil Filter
Drain Plug
58 somethings of the G052195S0 5w30 Oil
a 2.5 Gallon Jug of DEF poured in
And a multi point safety inspection along with a tire rotation

felt weird leaving the car there. but so far so good.

I need to check the oil level when I get home.

Saturday 1/20/18., SCHMTZ the following was performed by myself

20,000 mile oil change (IDParts filter housing drain tool was a little awkward to use, should cut some of the hose off since my lift isnt super high)

new fuel filter, piece of cake unbolt 5 little bolts, lift lid off filter, soak up a little fuel off the top, drain, replace bolt lid back on.

cabin filter (have to empty glove box, then push up on catches to release the door to open fully, then carefully unsnap the filter cover)
it is NOT under the removeable panel under the dash, or accessible from the cowling.(ask me how I know UGH)

2.5 gallon jug of DEF, piece of cake with the IDParts fill tool. I hooked the tool to the car fill port, then to the fresh opened jug, and set the jug on my tall cart to drain into the car.. took just a few minutes to empty. except the last inch of fluid or so.. gotta get me a funnel to put that into the car with.

4 tire rotation

good to know Im good for another 4-5 months... lol.

Schmutz is just over 42k miles and I need to be doing the 40k service very soon.

other than that, its a great commuter that has become the go to car at lunchtime to haul the coworkers to lunch.

deserves a bath and a good washing before winter hits too hard. I haven't even seen one CEL yet. its been great.

Finished up the 40k Service on 11/17/18.

Oil, Filter, Fuel Filter, Cabin Filter, Air Filter, DSG Service.

car has been returning ~44mpg Tank MPG since new according to Fuelly.

although I think Ohio just switched over to winter fuel so my MPG is down a bit.

Going to be calling the dealership to schedule the Phase 2 recall soon.

I figure I'm due for my 50k service in February or so. we shall see.

Scheduled the car in to get the Phase 2 fix completed on 12/17/18.

Dealer says it should take 2 days and I will get either a Jetta or a Passat Loaner.

I am also having them replace the wiper blades. the original ones that have been on the car since new are pretty tired and the replacements are only $45 installed.

With this mod, you can change the behavior of the accelerator. Option B provides a more linear acceleration without sudden deliveries.
1 - Module 44 - Power steering. then in security box enter Code (19249) after that
2 - Adaptation
3 - Select - switching driving profile
Choices :
A - Gradual, controlled by time
B - Directly controlled threshold value
