    Just exactly the setup I went with. I hope to never use it, but you don't know when you may have to use it.

    good dealers service experience

    Ralph Thayer, Livonia, MI has always been good to me. I've been good to them also. I showed their Techs how cut the DSG Fluid change time in half, and I now get some preference in shop time, if I need it. ;)

    First oil and DSG filter change

    You sound like I did back in the day... Keep it up. While you have the "fire" inside, track down Racor Biocide, Part Number ADT2116F. Get it in a quart bottle. Algae can contanimate your Fuel system. One half of an ounce every 6 months can save you many headaches.

    Pulled over 2x in a week speedo off

    You have a 2010 Chassis. The true MKV (2009, and below) has a 3 MPH variation of true speed. I.E. 75 MPH is an actual 72 MPH. Triple checked with a GPS.

    Pulled over 2x in a week speedo off

    75 indicated on your Speedometer is 72 in real time. What is your issue? (Whoops, your 2010 Jetta may be quite different than a 2005.5/2006 in respect to the Speedometer) You do need a portable GPS, and document what is what in regards to your actual speed.

    Vag Com Question

    3 blinks to 5, not going to happen... You have Auto Window Roll-up in Rain (Rain Closing Windows).The First click on the Wiper Stalk. This will service your Delayed wipers also. 2nd click and above will kill all other related features.
