I was wondering the same thing. It has an unmistakable smell of some serious quality washer fluid. I'm sure that $2 @ gal junk isn't the way to go. I might actually buy it from VW.

I really don't think it matters if you use the cheap stuff or not. In Germany you can't even buy real washer fluid anywhere (environmental concerns), people there use water or mix something with water.

i asked the sevice manager at my dealership about which washer fluid to use and he said that its nothing special that comes in the car. Anything from auto zone, pep boys etc will do fine. he also said though, that when they service your car, they will top off all fluids including the washer fluid, so as long as you get service form the dealership, you can get the same stuff.

Good to know.. One more thing on my list to check for after a dealer service. ;)

We in Belgium get this in our optional winter pakket together with heated seats.
