    Castrol Edge 5w-30 LL Alternative

    507 is low ash oil, so it tries not to accumulate ash in the DPF. The DPF can only accumulate a certain amount of ash before it has to be replaced. Non 507 oil will generate more ash, thus hurting the DPF.

    Castrol Edge 5w-30 LL Alternative

    Yep I bought it before everything went up. I also saw that you have a 15 passat, which takes 5.8qt I believe vs mine which is 4.5qt. So you have to get extra oil.

    Headlamp Steel Nut Removal

    I usally remove the 4 bolts that hold the bracket down, then the two screws on the headlight adjustment, and pull the bracket up if one or both of those adjustments were stuck.

    Original battery - finally died with no advance warning

    Funny to say that, the impala battery was also from costco. Only had to buy it once. Warranty it two times before I sold the car.

    Original battery - finally died with no advance warning

    Before I had my TDI, my 04 Impala battery would just lose a cell in 2 years, drove to work just fine, went to a store after work started and ran fine. But trying to start the car, nope battey was dead. Luckily I had a three year warranty so replacement was free.

    California is cracking down on ECU tuning. What's the best move for the future?

    Even if the ECU is tunned back to stock, how can they not pass it. So if you tuned it and move it back to stock, all you have to say that you bought the car that way.

    Paying $29k for a 105mi 2015 Passat TDI

    Living in Arizona, I keep my car air temp set to LO (Low) for 10 months in a year, I adjust the fan speed. I hate the auto and max ac system in the SEL climate controls. The main reason for SEL for me was the fender audio and KESSY/ Push Start/ Remote start.

    Replaced fuel filter, I am an idiot

    DMF = Dual Mass Flywheel, correct. TB = Timing Belt. Since i got to drop the DSG for the DMF, do the timing belt as well.

    Replaced fuel filter, I am an idiot

    I'm dropping my engine/dsg to do the TB & DMF & exhaust all at the same time! I got access to a car lift for a weekend.

    Emissions fix not complete - warranty questions

    There is no time limit for the fix to happen. The original deadline was for the payout/buy back. Hell if you find a non fixed car, wait 10 years, then get the fix done. VW still have to honor the warranty.
