    I used that one... Haldex oil/filter change is easy enough, but a ramp makes it better ;P

    have a search around for a better write up, that ones not too great. There are the official ones out there. I would have thought that having the car level was pretty important to make sure all the old oil came out.

    The official instructions also state that the car needs to be driven beforehand to heat the haldex oil to a specific temperature. You can read the oil temperature in the haldex using vag-com/vcds/whatever. Again, heating the oil is important too to make sure that it all drops out.
