    Help? Do all B5.5s have "auto-roll up/down all windows with key in lock" feature? Hello, I am new to VWs, new here, and have no VAG-COM gear yet so I'm hoping for some help with getting this feature to work, if my car is even equipped with it.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just sat in a new 2009 A4. The wheelbase is much longer than last years.... the car appears the same size as our B5's, which makes it very interesting to me now. Am I right on this?

  7. WTB: Black rearview mirror (do these exist for B5 or B5.5s?)

    Classified Archive
    Looking to replace the gray rearview mirror on my windshield with a black one to match, well, the color for everthing else on my car. Not sure why this wasn't black in the first place. I think I remember seeing this as an OE part on the B5s, though this would be for my 2003 GLS. Any leads?

    B5 Garage
    All, For my 40K service on my 2003 1.8T, I did most of the "biggie" required maintenance myself (air filter, cabin filter, oil & oil filter, tire rotation, etc.). I had my local indy mechanic check the belts, brake system, and other important bits (as a CYA). I hemmed and hawed over paying...
  10. What is the story on rear brakes/rotors on our B5 and B5.5s?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I replaced my rear pads and rotors because they were warping..... and this was around 33,000 miles. That seemed early. Dealer is now telling me that they have to be replaced again. I'm at 58000 miles now. What the hell? Rear brakes and rotors every 30K miles? Two questions: 1. Is this...

  15. Awfully lot of B5.5s out there these days

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Not sure if anyone else has noticed but I'm seeing more and more B5.5s out on the streets these days. :???: Is this due to recent incentives from VW to push sales/leases of the Passat and other models? Is it due to the B5.5 becoming more popular? I'd hate for the Passat to become just...
