I’m so mad at myself for doing this but today I was washing my Taos and went to pull up the windshield wipers like I’ve done on every other car I’ve owned and it took a big gash out of the inside edge of the hood. Anyways just be careful on the driver side because it only lifts a little bit before it hits the inside edge of the hood.

Ouch, at least it's fairly hidden and a little touch-up paint will work wonders. I had to scream at some folks a few years back when I returned to my car to find them trying to lift the wiper to put a flyer under it.
Don't forget the wiper "service position" - ignition on, ignition off, then wiper stalk down (for single wipe) and they will move to where you can lift them safely.

Yep, just looked that up on YouTube. Guess I had to learn the hard way. Was going to order some touch paint anyways…

Congrats on owning your first VW :)

Same as the "Idiot Mark" you get when owning your first 1911
