  1. Where is B5Bel's car?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Saw a silver B5 that reminded me of Bel's car. Anyone know where it is now? I remember him selling it years ago. Just curious. . . .
  2. Can anyone confirm where B5Bel is?

    IS Bel still doing side work(on Passats) at the new place of employement? I emailed him and got no response about it.

    I met with MoveOver yesterday afternoon to apply the VAG-COM to his extremely new car (less than 1K on the ticker!) in an effort to resolve an issue he's having with his three-spoke steering wheel. Please see the following threads for reference...
  5. Spotted: b5bel in Englewood Cliffs, NJ (56K warning)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Today, I took my car to Bel to get my shocks, springs, Chasbar, pads, and rotors installed. It only took him a little over an hour! The difference is like night and day! Squat and dive are minimized, and body roll feels non-existant. This is what the B5 should have been from the factory...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just got back from his shop and he has once again done a great job on my car. Flipped, and Julianfangs car went under the wrench too, but I won't steal their thunder. 3 hours and Bel did my timing belt, waterpump, coolant flush (obviously) underdrive pullies, electric fan kit, and an oil...
  8. Saturday with B5bel

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Today the trusty old Passat spent 4 or so hours in Bels garage bay getting a new sachs sport clutch and a resurfaced stock flywheel installed. After a little gentle persuasion on a couple of trouble-some bolts, the transmission was out and on the floor. A new rear main seal was installed for...
  9. Samco Sport Hose Clamps? (b5bel help?)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Alright, So i go tonight to get ready to order the RIGHT Samco silicone hoses, and I cant find anyone that sells the hose clamps. I know that B5bel got his hoses from somewhere, and they included the clamps. I have been told by many that it is worth it to get the better, upgraded clamps as the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I must say that i am really impressed with the work that Bel did. He really knows what he is doing. Bel also cleaned out my throttle body and flushed my break system. The car is running better than ever, and i really noticed a differemce after cleaning out the throttle body. The brakes also...
