Hey all, saying hi and probably the first new beetle running on E85.

I've looked at the bently for service intervals but figure I might as well get input from you guys too since i don't know what the common fail points are on this motor. I'm no noob to DIY with VW's or Audis. I do have rosstech as well.

This is the parts list I have now.

ENGINE/Trans
-Lubro Moly with the billet filter housing

Brake Fluid:

What else should I get? Valve cover gaskets? Anything you guys wish you bought before it broke? I was also thinking about changing the auto trans fluid.
