    new here

    hey guys. just thought I'd say hi. Just bought a 2006 Passat yesterday and so far pretty happy. has a few issues but nothing major. I ordered a cold air intake for because thats the easiest way of replacing a broken stock setup. I'm not new to the custom auto world but this is my first time not building a custom truck. My other cars include a 2011 f250, 1956 f100 hot rod, 1985 toyota pickup (future rock crawler) and a 1950 Buick super. the super took me 7+ years to build that one. I'm working on year 5 now for the '56. of course I can't leave anything alone for very long. the problem ive found with the VW is pretty much trivial little stuff like the mechanism for the rear ashtray is busted, the stock intake system has piece missing and is broken in a few spots, and the engine cover is missing a bolt that mounts to the engine so its just flopping around under there right now. other than that it seems to be a pretty clean little ride.

    Here at last.

    Okay, this will go for one post with a hope that I'll get some help in the meantime. We just bought a 2005 B6 wagon (BPY engine) with about 95,000 miles on it. Obviously, if the belt hasn't been changed, it needs it. The question is....if the part number on the current belt is different than the number the local VW dealer parts dept gave me, can I have any faith that the belt has been changed? Otherwise, I need to change it real soon.

    My B5 Wagon

    Okay, so I bought a 2000 Passat SW with the 2.8. Its a GLS...nothing fancy...sort of a British Racing Green color. No others like this around which makes it a plus for me...Anyway, I bought this thing 4 years ago and didn't want a station wagon, but when I kicked the tiptronic over it turned into "a sports car in disguise". Its a lot of fun to drive and has plenty of cargo room to boot. I've had some problems with it, broken timing belt that resulted in new heads, bad axles, brake issues and the latest control arms, ball joints and bearings. At times its like a bad relationship- even on days you want out, you don't really...I put my wagon up for sale last weekend. I priced it to sell it quickly set on replacing it with a truck to fit more of my needs. After 22 hours on the market, I pulled it. I just couldn't sell the thing. It only has 125k on it and surely there's plenty of life still left in it...All it took was a curvy road and the tiptronic to remind me why I bought it in the first place. Something about it keeps me coming back for more. I thought I may as well join the forum and join the rest of you guys with the affection for these machines. I think you have to own one to know the feeling. I wish that I was a little more mechanically inclined with mine and may be able to pick up some knowledge here to save a buck or two...
