Last weekend at 193k miles the Wagon Got a new Easy on the wallet front brake set. the originals that were on the car when I got it in 2010 were going grindy grindy... and the slots in the rotors were worn clean off.

Today, 199,907 miles.

Knurren got a new (gently used) pair of Sachs rear shocks. the Used FSDs I bought for the blue golf 6 years ago sprung a leak and puked the shock oil out of the passenger side one.

I know I have no warranty since I bought them used, I figure I got my moneys worth out of them. The Fronts are still working nicely so I wont be replacing those yet.

Knurren also got a new glow plug in Cylinder 4 since VCDS told me that it had a fault on Cylinder 1 glow plug popping up. (yes, the wiring harness is wired backwards for some reason... go VW)

Teary eyed.... Glad to see the milestone. After owning a CC for a year, and a MK6 gti for 3 years, I'm ready to hop back into a TDI.

It's not that hard. Just copy and paste into Word and then save as a pdf.

Have Fun!

P.S. This is a big file, so I will probably delete it from the server in a few days. You can let me know when you have it.
