    Sorry about the title, it's time for a nap as I'm speaking in jibberish!!!! I have a Monsoon system, will be installing a subwoofer and just ordered all the hardware to power it. Tapping the speaker level wires sounds pretty straight forward, but I'm still a little unclear as what is the...

    The little lady picked up a GLI over the weekend. She had a heart set on an A3 but after driving the GLI she liked the interior more and got a lot more for the money with it so she ended up going with it. She is loving it and is excited about doing a few basic mods...chipping and tinting are...

    I just performed this today due to worn out, 2 year old factory blades. I went to Murray's (local auto parts store) and picked up the Anco N22R refills for $7 and cut them down to 21". I noticed a sign that they could special order the VW Aero refills for a mere $89...

    I changed my oil for the first time since buying the car. What a F***ing pain in the ass that was. Screw that damn belly pan. Anyway I put on a big kahuna filter, filled up with castro 5w-30 dino and poured in 3/4th a bottle of autorx. Do I need to take it easy while doing autorx? I don't...

    Last November I bought my '99 Passat. I had terrible FM reception and no AM reception. I have heard of other people having factory headunits that have stopped supplying the required voltage to the antenna amp. I put in a new headunit and replaced my antenna, which was destroyed. I still had...

    It seems that in the past year (or past two seasons), I've been getting really good gas milage. I've driven the same drive every day (for the past 5.5 years) with my Passat (country roads and a little "city" driving) to get numbers like 20-23 MPG on my trip computer. I use the same gas the...

    On my 2001 V6 manual, I added 20 oz of Techron when I got a full tank of gas, then drove 5 hours at 80 mph, using about half the tank. I think the throttle response has improved, with less hesitation off idle. Rev-matching when downshifting seems easier, because the revs are there when you...

    UPDATE: I installed a DVD player too. See weblink below for DVD action. I got my navigation unit yesterday, and installed it today. It was pretty easy, despite all the horror stories I've read... Took me about 4 hours to install the Navi and connect my Phatnoise. I still have to install the DVD...
