Hello everyone! New to the forum and new to driving a 1.6T (just got my Ultimate). I was told that my first oil change is due in 3 months (car has 32 km currently), which I read is to ensure that all is going well so far with the engine etc.

Anyway, just wanted ask the experienced drivers here for advice - do’s and don’t’s - on driving my vehicle to avoid issues. I drive mostly in the city but sometimes can get stuck in traffic. I do some highway driving as well. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Use your turn signals, No tail gating, and no brake checking others, and STOP signs do not mean screw the other people. Otherwise try to not do burnouts, even with traction control off and stability control off, it doesn't seem to like standing burnouts.

Thank you, everyone! Very good info. I'm just a 'regular' driver so under normal driving practices the car and I should be ok, hopefully.

Just concerned about winter driving now. Any tips? I think winter tires are in order. I can downsize to a 17 so that will be more affordable.

Be careful changing the whee
l/tire size if you have AWD. It will screw up the computer that controls the sensors that send traction to the wheels. Check the owners manual and your dealers service dept. first.

You can use any of the following Tire/wheel sizes and be within 1% of the original total overall diameter of the original 235/45/18 Tires that came with your Ultimate.

I would use plain steel wheels (without even wheel covers) for winter. Prices below at TireRack.com are as follows, includes new wheels, tires, TMPS sensors, delivery mounting, balancing. Your TPMS sensor system will still report your tires air pressure.

All include Blizzak WS90 snow tires.

215/55/17 = 1,081.48 delivered.
215/60/16 = 1,024.51 delivered
235/45/18 = 1,611.90 delivered (Steel wheels are not available from Tirerack in 18" size, so these are better wheels.

You maybe able to do better price wise locally, but this will give you a starting point for comparison sake.
