Completed my first DIY full service last week, learn a lot about the car all whilst saving yourself a little bit of money too :happy2:



Car rewarded me with advisory free MOT, so decided to give her a reward clean:



Oil leak from intercooler seal so next up is the PCV replacement (as much as I like my sort of factory catch can :signLOL:) - and a S3 shifter whilst I'm at it too.

Replaced the main thermostat in my mk5 GTI tonight. Took right on 4 hours including putting loads of stuff I seemed to use away. 
Not too bad I thought for a first time. Car gets up to 90° nice and quickly now and stays there.

Yes so far so good! I took advantage of the 20% off offer. The ride quality is improved over the stock 6R set up. Not pressed on with it yet but will report once its all bedded in.

Finally got the Pirelli P Zero A/S Plus-UHP's mounted and aligned....first reaction is they are (in comparison to the Conti DW) quieter, smoother, and yet very responsive with great feedback. It's below freezing here so it will be some time before I can remark on summer capabilities.
