    DSG oil choice

    I have used VW factory, Liqui-Moly, Febi-Bilstein with no issues. I use the top fill method. I buy the kits from IDParts, they say the filter is an OEM but the factory marked part is $5 more. They both look identical. 5L comes out so I put 5L back in.

    2006 NB headlamp question

    The wires and connector on the head lamp itself, not the one on the car, are getting fried. Yes I'm running the hotter SYLVANIA H7 SilverStar Ultra. The stock bulbs suck at night.

    99 Beetle shut off while driving

    Possibly the fuel filter/o-rings,you may have a vacuum leak and are sucking air. I had my 2006 NB die on me and it was the o-rings,used the supplied black/black ones and not the VW black/blue ones.The filter was a Hengst from an approved TDI vendor. Had to bleed the air out of the fuel system...
