    I installed some Koni FSD's about 40k miles or so ago. I paired them with Eibach Pro Kit Springs for a lowering of around 30mm all round. Initially I was very pleased with the set up. Dampening was satisfactory over rough roads, yet the car felt stable and well balanced through corners. Fast...

    Anyone reach 40k miles without warped rotors? My 2012 SE has reached a point where the brake vibration is really bad. I voted against re-surfacing/tru'ing them since I'm nearing 50k anyway (probably too thin)... so I've got a set of Powerstop OEM's rotors and ceramic pads on order. I'm assuming...

    I'm getting ready to do the 40K service and would like help finding the parts at a good price. Do I need to buy the Vag-Com from Ross. Trying to save some money on this since the dealer wants almost a grand to do the work and I can do every thing they can for less. Well take any help here in...

    I called my local dealer to schedule a 40k oil change to my 2012 Jetta Sportwagen TDI and the service desk person told me that I also will need a DSG service at 40k. What exactly does need to be done to my car at 40K besides the oil and filter change? I the future would you recommend to have...

    Greetings, I'm not sure if this is the place for this thread, if not I do apologize. The odometer is about to turn 40k and I got a call from the dealership this week inquiring about when I'd like to bring the car in. The warranty has expired and so I asked how much it would cost out of...

    We are rapidly approaching the 40K service on our 2012 Passat SE. Would like to see if some of this can be done at home. Does anybody have a list of what needs attention at this mileage? Also, what is the experience with synthetic oil changes at non VW service locations. It seems that the VW oil...

    1999 Passat 1.8t GLS tiptronic. (B5) 40,000 miles (Yes, NOT 140!) Perfect condition, other than rear-end damage. Clean title. Yep, I got rear-ended. The car is totally driveable, but the insurance company says "no dice," and I must make a decision whether to keep it or walk away. It's in...

    Hey Guys, It's that time, 40K service time. I'm planning on DIY this one. Plugs, Air Filter, Cabin Filter, and doing the belt checks. Everything else should be good. Just had the oil changed a little while ago, and supposedly everything else is hunky-dory. Will probably ask for more help later...

    Hello, I have a passat 2.0t fsi and 42,000 miles on it. I was trying to have a 40k routine maintenance at a local VW dealership but they quoted me $750 which is too expensive. As you imagine, it included replacing air filter, oil filter/ oil change, replacing spark plugs, brake fluid, pollen...

    These are the original springs/shocks (all 4 corners) from my 2001 B5 (Sedan manual trans, 1.8t, 2001 (not 2001.5))- they have approx 40k miles (I replaced them with H&R + Bilsteins many years ago and then sold the passat several years ago) How about $50 local pickup preferred -- 90278. I can...

    The maintenance schedule calls for spark plugs every 40K miles, which seems overkill, no?!? The plug is the NGK PFR6Q, which is a platinum, "extreme life" plug. How long do you keep them before replacement?

    Hey guys, I'm new here. Been on the Vortex for years, so I may know some of you. We recently upgraded to a 38K mile '05 Passat GLX 4motion. It is one sweet ride, let me tell ya! So I've been reading up a little on the forums here to learn what I can. The car's maintenance history was...
