I've had Bilstein HD's on my B5 wagon for about 5k miles. Fronts ride and handle great. Could do with softer damping in the rear. It just feels a little too harsh and jittery. Has anyone paired Bilstein fronts with Konis in the rear? Or tried other combos?

I have a 2001 Passat B5, and I've performed the double din conversion.
However, when I install my original hazard and rear demister switches, I find they are a very tight fit and actually so much so that they get stuck on/off when pressed.
I've tried two different double din center frame...
Just installed some 17" Classix with tires that match the Passat's factory tire diameter (to keep the speedo the same). There's not rubbing anywhere, but the fronts are about 3/8"-1/2" from the control arm. A test drive shows no rubbing but it still scares me. Is it ok to drive like this?

I will be replacing the motor mounts on my car and wanted to know if I have to replace the 6 bolts (3 per side) that you need to remove to remove what I'm guessing is part of the sub frame to give clearance to remove the mount. I changed the mounts on my 01 and...
Got a B5.5 that won't crank. I have bench tested the starter and the replacement (used) starter, both worked outside the car but not on the car. Good voltage to starter, no voltage to trigger wire though. I have tried applying 12 volts directly to the solenoid with no results. The ground wire...
