    Finally, A Maintenance To Do...

    Something besides oil and filters. The original equipment wiper blades needed replacement. They had begun to leave tiny streaks in light rain. The originals lasted 6 years. I bought replacement blades four years ago at the dealership, so they were handy. R&R was stupid simple and quick.

    I've been so busy since we built our new home in 2015, that I haven't much time for forums. So, hello to all of the POP Crew here. Black Betty runs just like she did when we drove it off the lot in March of 2013. The 2017 Fit we bought last August as a company executive car runs like new also, but it's only got 16K miles on it.

    It's raining all day here, so I'm going to try to fix a relative's old PC. Going back in time to XP. Best wishes to all.

    What's up guys. Sorry I'm not on much anymore. I'm doing well... fully adjusted to the divorced life and the GTI has had zero issues after a year.

    Hope everyone is well!

    Hey guys. Been forever, coming back to say hi. Gonna rub Roadcourse the wrong way, but thank you Mr. Trump's trade policy for nailing my job, been out of work for 3 months now. Been applying for jobs since then but the market is being very picky or expecting 60% cuts in pay (...no joke...).

    One company wanted a CFD expert, project manager, modeling guru, business-focused engineer for $50k/year with 10+ years of industry experience. A good CFD guy goes for $150k/year with that level of experience and he's not necessarily gonna hit all the other things they were looking for. Maybe I have unrealistic expectations but as a rookie leaving college with zero experience, I was making $60k/year in 2007 and as a burger flipper at McD's here, you're gonna make $35k/year thanks to the minimum wage...

    Oh well. How you all doing?

    Good luck in your search. Hopefully something decent comes your way soon!

    Being recently divorced, I'm watching my budget very carefully. I make an excellent salary and it's still hard to save. My only real "luxury" is my GTI.

    Doesn't rub me the wrong way. I can't name a politician I like. Sorry to hear your issue.

    If you're willing to move (I damned sure would be) there aren't enough people for engineering and technical jobs where I live. PM me if you want to know more about here and other places like that.

    This economy won't be replicated for a LONG time. Get it while it's here.

    what's a CFD expert?

    i'm a project manager and i quit looking as i found there were looking for similar people that foo is running into. money ain't great where i work but the benefits are second to none. i've earned 30 days a year of PTO time...and i take about 40 days when it's all said and done. leave early for this...come in late because of this. work from home because ..... well, just because.

    they don't care as long as i get my work done. i was gone at a volleyball tournament, out of town. i answered a few emails from my phone...they considered that work, so didn't count PTO against me. cant' get that elsewhere.

    next week, CVT fluid needs changed, and they are wanting $89.95 for that, but i have their 10% off coupon, so, $80.00 for it. and i think the last time i did the fluid, it cost me nearly $50 in fluid and crush washers. also, supposed to get 6 more inches of the white powder this weekend...so they can do it.
    Good score.
    About a month ago, my dealer quoted me $180 on the CVT fluid change.
    I bought the CVT fluid and plan on DIY soon.
    I haven't asked about the brake fluid change yet.
    No coupons for either, except 10% off any service.
