    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Finally put in the new spark plugs I bought in 2020 and changed my oil.

    Did I drain the axle oil?

    Sudden Perfume Smell

    Wait a minute, I just got random notifications for this thread and revived it. So after chastising every single person who told you "just wait and the smell will go away", and all the abuse you gave them over their genuine answers, you WAITED and the SMELL WENT AWAY. jeeez louise.
