that's a nice car)
1- I always use plus 89 never had problem
2. every 60k miles (dealer recommended) max every 70k you need to replace timing belt and components (if dealer too expensive try to service at local shops who usually working on vw/audi or german cars they have their own way to get repair not every shop doing the right job in these days!!)
spend max couple hundred$$ get your self a registered vag-com so you don't need to gone crazy each time battery disconnected)
3-DO NOT pass your oil change time.. fallow service maintenance schedule open your self a ecs tuning accountgood quality parts there
4 vag-com help you out if any electrical& electronic issues with point guide
5 American cars not cheap to maintain also ) they all the same now
