Red and purple is usually the one that gets people pulled over. However, I live in an area in Indiana where police could care less, with much bigger problems on their hands. Granted I am not advocating people do this, rather if you decide to do it, only do to fog lights and keep turned off most of the time, like myself. However, the sickness of the look at night outweighs the possible risks to me. Especially with only doing one of the three fog lights..

Which Liquimoly oil? There are almost a dozen VW 2.0L approved oils, that meet VW specs on their website. I was looking at the 5W40 Leichtlauf High Tech. Is this the best one to go with?

Liquimoly, I heard makes very good lubricants!

Yesterday i let the wife drive it so i could take her mk6 tdi into auto skills and change the oil. A lovely snow all day yesterday concerned me but it's warming up now and should be mid 40s today. Enough for a wash/clay/seal.

It's not just your state. I've found people around here mostly inconsiderate jerks who have no regard for anyone besides themselves. Is it really that difficult to put the shopping cart back where it came from, and perhaps park equidistantly between the lines that separate each space?

Well the carts, they pay people to come get the carts out of the lot. So why expend the effort? That's someone else's job.

Happens on base even. I've noticed it's with a couple very dominant demographics though. The entitlement mentality is alive and well.

I have a sartorial happy hour I'm attending tomorrow evening at the St. Regis (swanky!) and I'm 99% sure I'm taking the Metro. I have absolutely no desire to pay to park in DC and then suffer the consequences....
