i wish it was how long it actually took lol.
As a former dealership tech, I can verify with certainty that warranty time is NOT how long it takes. At least not for the first 10 or so times on a job. After you've done a few, maybe you can make a few minutes profit. Maybe.

i have all my reciepts saved and a maintenance log i'm mostly up to date with as well. has all the modifications in a list, all of the problems and status of problem or solution, then a running list of purchases/installations etc. i try to give that to every new owner.

I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but I'm not sure how "complete" anyone would consider the maintenance records you have are for a 13yo car you have had for 6 months...

I forgot that I printed all my maintenance records for my mk7 and put them in the glove box along with a nice note to the next owner before I traded it in. I hope it gives the next owner some peace of mind and some good vibes 🥰🥰. I hope to see it around town soon.

I did the same with my last R. Whoever bought that car lucked out with probably one of the best maintained and well documented vehicles the could have asked for.

Owner 1 left all the maintenance records in the car, and had all the scheduled maintenance done on or ahead of schedule. Owner 2 put less than 10k miles a year on it (height of the pandemic) with documented oil changes in that period. Then I got the car, and did all the things you'd expect to see on a car approaching 80k.
