She got a sunglass holder, a new Bentley manual and a warning triangle (for the unavoidable breakdown)!

Forgot to mention that I also got a new TomTom One XL GPS.

Noooooooo!!!!!!!

Heh, well my beauty got 8,3 litres Shell Helix Ultra VX 5W-30 and she seems to like it :) Also, I started cleaning the engine compartment to get her shine inside as well. Man, there really isn't any extra space there ! Even cleaning is hard! It is easy to understand why the motor removal is needed in order to reach the chains or transmission...

Btw, I discussed about that with my friend (who happens to be a senior mechanic) today and he wasn't shocked when I showed him the pictures available in the net. He agreed that it's a hell of a job to get the engine out, but doable. He just said to me that it's no use to sell the car because of fear of breakdown. "Just drive on and if the cam chains / sensors need to be repaired, just get it done." The job must be very expensive at the vw dealer indeed (in my town their fee is 90 euros/h), but maybe it can be done somewhere a dat cheaper... hmm.
