Re: 2014 srt trade in value

That's about right. I traded my 2012 for $46k which is average wholesale.

2013 = ~$50000 and 2014 =~$55000 wholesale.

Add 10% for retail.

Re: Warning! Check your oil from dealer.

I got the first 4 oil changes free so I use the dealer. On my first change they brought out the bottles of 5w-40 and I stopped them. The tech said they didn't have any of the new Pennsoil yet (1...

Re: Another tire decision

Replaced rock hard, worn out 4 season Pirelli's (at 14,500 miles!) with General Grabber UHP's. All but one took no more than 1 oz of weight, the lone outlier took 2 oz, I can live with that.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

6000 miles which is roughly 9600 kilometers so the 10000 KM interval is correct. However, they halve that for what they call "severe duty". Not sure if your area is considered severe duty or not.

Re: 2014 EcoMode

It's unlikely the 8 speed has any real effect on the horrid sound and loss of torque you get with MDS so it's a pretty safe bet the 2014 will have the same exhaust valves.

It's not that big a deal, only the map upgrade didn't work, the firmware upgrade went just fine. My roads haven't changed all that much, just POI's.
