Doing some research and it appears that most of the trailer couplers will allow to adjust to 50mm ball. There should be a nut which should tighten the clamp.

Thanks. Actually, I had a chain attachment welded to the hitch. I just read over VW forums where there are many owners with Euro hitches that the ball size is actually not a problem.

That may depend on the model - I heard Jurid is OE provider, but maybe ZIMMERMANN provides the products as well.

I paid $360 + no tax for OE rotors, pads and sensor. I have a bad experience with aftermarket rotors (Zimmermann) and will always buy OE front rotors.

Cost of the loaner is built into the dealer's margin. When you negotiate hard, you can't expect to get a loaner. As an example, I paid $500 over the invoice on E70 and they agreed to provide a loaner...

CBS states that around 52k miles I will need to go for an inspection. I believe this is inspection II, but can be wrong.

I drive BMW diesels the last 10 years and I have never waited a minute to heat up the car. This pointless, the car heats up faster when it is driving.

It is not necessary about the temperature. At least not directly. It is about Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) which needs temperature and time to clear up.
