  2. Over 200,000 miles - finally broken in. What now?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So late last fall I climbed over the 200,000 mile club in my '02 1.8t wagon. I feel like now she's finally broken in. Now that we're on to higher mileage, what now? What types of things should be looking at. There's not exactly a standard maintenance schedule for a quarter million miles. My...

    Knock on wood. She's still cranking as hard as she did when I picked her up. It was a rough winter on her for sure though. I have a busy spring ahead of me but all-in-all...she's been good to me.

  7. 200,000 Miles

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 2004 1.8T reached a milestone today. Despite a rash of recent issues, I have had to do very little to it over the last few years. While I have not been particularly active here lately, there's no way this would have been possible if it weren't for all the fantastic information I've spent...

  12. Color MFD+ swap in 07 B6 Passat 2.0T 160 MPH -> does 200 MPH matter?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I'm considering doing this swap in my 07 B6 Wagon. Has anyone swapped a 160 MPH to 200 MPH with a Color+ MFD? It's highline and I have the latest Q revision gateway already. I also already have Mk VI steering with AH SWCM. Everything is working flawlessly with the exception of Mk VI buttons...
  13. Misses on #3 at lower rpm above 2,200 is just fine

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2000 passat with a 1.8T. It misses terribly at lower rpms. But runs great at above 2,200 rpm. I pulled the coil and plug wire off #3 and no difference, its like you didn't even remove it. You can hold the wire just a few cm off of plug top and hear the spark inside. I also pulled...
