What should I make sure I do if I am doing my own MK8 Golf R maintenance?

If you have decided to maintain your own vehicle you should be sure to do a few things.

  1. Keep meticulous service records including mileage, date and proof of purchase of the parts.  This is important because if you ever run into a warranty issue they may ask you for service records.  Failing to produce these could result in a denial of a warranty claim.
  2. Make sure you are using oil that meets the required spec.  As per the owners manual you can use 0w-30 but the oil must meet the required Volkswagen Spec of "VW 504 00".  All of our MK8 Golf R maintenance kits include oil that meets or exceeds this spec.
