    Can someone tell me what thread the front tow hook needs? I might do a DIY front tow hook license plate mount. Thanks!

    Your best bet is to buy a cheapo towhook off eBay and use it as a base. That thread size doesnít exist anywhere else, based on my research.

    Because German Engineering ^TM.

    I was trying to rig up a GoPro mount that wouldnít cost $40, saw the thread size, laughed, and hadnít thought about it again.

    Whatís the maintenance interval for the fuel filter? The PO changed it at 90k miles and 4 years ago. Car has about 163k miles now.

    Lifetime filter :D


    It might not be a bad idea to change it now. I've heard recommendations of 40,000 - 50,000 miles.

    30k is way too soon.

    Last I checked, the type of filters we have with integrated fuel pressure regulators last between 60-100k. I doubt you'd have to replace it before then unless you're running low tier gas.

    I feel like a lot of service intervals I see online are anecdotal, but it's a relatively cheap part to replace every 50-60k miles on the lower end. $60 for MANN last time I checked.

    99% of my fill ups have been at shell until recently (moved to Costco). Guess Iíll buy it next time I order from fcpeuro and get it done when I have sometime. Thanks guys!
