    DIY Oil Change

    This is my first car and in the past I have always changed my own oil in my trucks. What are you guys doing to change your oil? Top side or bottom? If bottom, how are you lifting the car, with ramps, etc and are you lifting all four tires. If top side, what do you recommend for an extractor?

    Financing questions

    What rates are you guys getting and where? I saw some posts where some people were getting 1.9% through VWOA for TDI's. I read the fine print and it said TDI's excluded. Expecting my TDI SEL in a few more weeks. Thanks Jared
