Instead of clogging this post up with requests, why doesn't everyone send eluwak vbmenu_register("postmenu_1701585", true); a private message and it will keep the postings here down to a managable amount.

Wow, great stuff. I bought the 06 Jetta in Jan.08 with 14,000 miles on it and had the dealer change the oil first couple times. I question if they are using the correct oil since the part number on my invoice is different that the correct vw part # for the correct oil. I have always changed my own oil on other vehicles, but was a little worried about a diesel. This information is very valuable to me. I hope you keep up the great work on this web site. Thank you.
