    B5 Garage
    Prestone makes a flushing kit you can buy. the T in the kit can be cut apart, and the plastic bits can be JB-Welded into the heater core coolant lines after you cut them off to get rid of the split part. I did it successfully.

  19. Passat W8 US vs. Euro Brake Question

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    assuming the rotor fits with the same lug bolts in a 5x112 pattern, stock wheels would scrape the control arms. you'd have to go with a far different set of wheels (smaller ET, I believe) than you have now to clear those arms. in addition, the caliper carrier would have to be different.
