  1. 2019 VAG Euro PassatWorld TOTD Oktoberfest

    Events & Gatherings
    Bummer guys. Looks like this will be first year without a B5 or B5.5 in the starting grid... Andreas there is still time... PZ come as you are now — most of us old PWers are driving something else now, apparently. ;-)

  5. Need to know if these will fit

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Rather than answer you in PM Eddy, here's your answer: I cannot answer that without: 1. your wheel width; 2. your wheel offset in mm (ET); and 3. your tire width I'm mm. Then I can show you how to use calculator. Stock 2004 GLX wheels are 16x7 ET38 with a 205/55 series tire. Thats a 8" wide...
  6. PES G4 Stage 2 rebuild/refresh/install on my 2007 B7 S4 Cabrio 6MT

    Anything Auto
    Adapter hub design for offset quick-change pulley. Net offset is 22.5mm. So I only need to shave 7.5 mm from rear of SC and intake plenum flange. This is happening! Bonus that I will be able to change pulleys (and belts) fairly easily, hopefully with SC in situ. That would be very cool.
  7. PES G4 Stage 2 rebuild/refresh/install on my 2007 B7 S4 Cabrio 6MT

    Anything Auto
    Ugh, I haven't updated this thread in a while, so I am behind several months from the similar threads I have on Audizine and SCAudi.com. I am actually making some sizable progress towards a summer installation. Firstly, I'll just drop these here: The test fit of the custom intercooler lid...
  8. Need to know if these will fit

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Both sets will fit fine, the 225s will be a little stretched on the 18x8s. Assuming 225s on the 17s, they would have a good sidewall profile and offer some curb protection, if that is a concern for you. The 17s will also perform better, because the rotational mass of the wheel barrel will be...
  9. FS: A6 Strut Tower Brace

    Parts For Sale
    For shipping, it weighs under 4 lbs with modest packaging in rolled and taped cardboard. I can be sent USPS First Class Mail at that rate, or USPS priority mail own packaging CONUS for under $20 IIRC.
  10. FS - 17x8 et35 5 spoke Borbet w/new Michelin PSS $600, Chicago area

    Parts For Sale
    17x8s with 225/45 17s are THE best setup for handling on a B5.5. The PSS tires are sticky and wear well for performance summers. GLWS!
  11. Mission Impossible: MFSW Upgrade on a 98 AEB w/o Cruise Control [+PICS +Updates]

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Vitor, you asked me to weigh on your process, and I am happy to help, but first you must answer one critical question. Seeing that you live in Rio de Janeiro, was your Passat made in Wolfsburg with the EU and NA Passats of that model year, or did yours get built in a Brazilian assembly plant...
  12. FS: Custom CNC-machined pedal covers for 30V V6 6MT $200 shipped to US48

    I still has these, just posted them to Facebook B5/5.5 Passat Owners Group page.
  13. Thinking about upgrading from my B5.5 to a B7

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Perhaps you already know this, but I will offer it anyways. The B7 McPherson strut driving experience is vastly different than the control arm suspension offered in the north/south engine B5.5. Consider a B7 A4. It will feel more familiar. The B5.5 was a good bit of Audi C5 A6 under the skin...
  14. 2003 2.8L v6 passat engine swap

    B5 Garage
    G2 kits are way easier to come by than complete G1 setups. PES only made about a dozen G1 kits before evolving to G2 design. G1 is fun and loud and can be intercooled, but you have to pull the SC and all its plumbing to change your plugs on Bank 2. Therefore I would highly recommend a G2 setup...
  15. A bit of a different request.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Of the front or back seats? Fronts are identical and interchangeable. I cannot speak to the interchangeability of FWD sedan and FWD wagon rear seat backs, only that there is definitely NOT compatibility between 4-motion wagon rear seat backs and FWD sedan rear seat backs. :wrench:
  16. B5 AND B5.5 Euro Steering Wheel

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    B6 MFSW controls will not work on a B5/5.5. B5.5 MFSW controls will not work on a B5. You have to adapt the exact generation of MFSW controls that came with your car in a project like this to retain full MFSW utility...
  17. Auto headlights

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had an aftermarket Chinese VW auto headlamp switch in my B5.5. It was easy to install and looked great. Search the B5/5.5 technical forums and you should find my install post.
  18. Where can I find this piece?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Not all MYs. My 2004 GLX didn't have them, and 2005s didn't either. I think they were last fitted OE in 2003.
