Got to go see Dr. Jay last night. Discussed the possibility of banning half the people on the site, but I talked him off the brink for everyone.

Took her in for a 70k mile carbon cleaning and for some help with flushing the DSG (I just don't know what I'm doing here OK?!!?)

Jay removed the intake like an animal. He knew how to work the car and was dancing around like a long legged, pissed off Puerto Rican. Taking the mani off is a pain in the balls but he got it done and Iiii helped! A little.

Luckily for me, it looked to be worth while; plenty of buildup to observe. Not TOO much on the valves that I could get a light at but plenty on the stems nonetheless and thats the heavy stuff.

I went to work on cleaning the runner dividers up and jay got to work on the rest

All in all quite pleased with the result.
Smoother idle, cleaner startup, slightly crisper throttle, less feeling of slugging misfires and stuff. Not night and day and I didn't wanna get my hopes up too high but I'm pretty happy for what it's worth! New DSG fluid definitely helped the trans feel nice and crispy again as well.
