    Hello, I still have my B5, but my other half is considering a used 2010 2.0 CC with 26,000 miles. We will buy Friday afternoon if all checks out. It is a Certified Pre-Owned ("World Car" now), so it has a limited 2 year/24,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. However, we plan on keeping the...

    Like the title says, anyone take advantage of the 0% deal on the left over 08 Passats? If so, how did you do on the actual price of the car? I know that the financing is already a HUGE saving on the vehicle, so most of the time the dealers hold back on discounts beyond that. I am looking...

    I have a set of stock Conti's on stock wheels wrapped in plastic tire bags in my garage that I never use, and I'd like to make some more room by perhaps storing them in the yard. It gets cold here in the winter, down to about 10 degrees at the lowest, but usually around 30 in the winter. They'll...

    It never occured to me when I was considering getting chipped, and it's not exactly a major selling point but for the first time in my life I turned on the A/C today in a 4 cyl car and there was plenty of power instead of having to rev the hell out of it. What a strange feeling to have the...

    What is the advantage of having this done? I just got a borla muffler put on that has a 2.5'' tip on the end that sticks out the back of the car. Ive been thinking of doing the whole system as that. So let me know, thanks...

    Since it has been unseasonably warm here in the North East I decided to take advantage of the weather and finally get around to painting my engine covers and related parts. I also decided to paint and install the B5.5 Cowl Cover and Battery Cover which I bought 10 months ago. Getting the Cowl...

    The A4's dv sits on the turbo inlet pipe instead of the Passat's sitting on the intercooler pipe. My guess is that it could reduce the time to plumb the air back into the turbo inlet pipe, and would give a sharper throttle response. Is there any benefit to distance the DV from the intercooler...

    Is there? I have been getting synthetic at the dealership since i bought my 03 V6 CPO. Its more expensive, but i dont mind it - though i am still curious if there is any real benefit in this. Anyone?

    I'm trying to compare suspension kits from ECS Tuning which both uses H&R Sport Springs and Bilstein shocks (1.3F & 1.25R). One kit is grooved while the other isn't. What are the advantages you get from a grooved shock than the non-grooved one? The difference in price is 60 bucks more or less.

    What's the deal with these mirrors? I had them on my 2001 Wolfsburg Jetta. I see guys modding their Passats with these mirrors, and I don't know what the advatage is? They didn't seem to do anything extra on my Jetta, other than be blue colored... do the self tint or something? Jimmy :)

    I had a reservation for a midsize car so that we could have repairs start on our new car that was hit a week back. After getting picked up by Enterprise we arrived to find out that they had rented all the midsize vehicles....and for that matter all of the vehicles in this small branch...

    What advantage would larger rotors, etc. have over stock brakes? It my mind, if stock brakes make the ABS kick-in when you stomp the brakes, the larger brakes would only do so sooner. Thanks :beer:
