    Bentley manual - can not find fuel quality ?

    Do you own VCDS? There is an injection balance feature. And then injection timing is a plug in that runs in basic mode.

    XMAN turbo ALH injectors

    Depends if you feel lucky. You can install them and assuming you have VCDS you can check the balance of the injectors. I prefer buying injectors from Drivbiwire as his are always tested and balanced

    remaining miles or time before service

    Yes the dealer will charge you oh $70 -$100 to reset it and you just buy VCDS and take control of the diagnostics on your car. My wife's car is a 2013 Golf and just like you I had changed the oil and it came on. So in VCDS Hex-Com there is a reset SRI screen where you can reset them.

    Compression test first!! The engine could be worn out.

    Non-tdi 1.6L fuel pump tuning

    Actually on a 1.6 it could be injection timing. You need a dial indicator. The other thing I would do is a compression test.
