  1. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi Guys, 2006 V6 Passat 4 Motion Aircon has never been great. But when summer came I really took notice and it is working intermittently. Usually not at all when the car first starts and NEVER if the car has been parked in the sun and is hot inside to start with. I thought I had a solution...

    Hey PW. I got a 2000 1.8t B5. It is Black Magic Pearl (LC9Z/Z4) I'm wondering if anyone knows what type of paint was used originally for our b5s. I know there is like acrylic lacquer, acrylic enamel, acrylic urethane and water-based... Does anybody know what our paint was originally. My car...

    Got a 1.8t that I love it's a 99 but I've been told that if I push more than 11 psi on stock ecu tuning there is no benefit. So what I'm wondering is 1 can you bypass it by running different plugs and 2 where could I get my ecu flashed and how much would it be? This isn't urgent at all but I'm...

    For those of you who know who i am, you might recall that i used to have vinyl stripes on and all that. I removed the stripes, added a zender front lip, painted the wheels. And WOW, the car looks so much cleaner and sexy. Im thinking of putting some black vinyl on the roof. What do you guys think?

    I have a Windsor Blue exterior/Light Beige leather interior. Looking around for spare parts, it seems that the Windsor Blue B5s are not as common as other colors (i.e. silver, black). Is this true? Anyone know how many were produced?

  12. The Showroom
    I'm looking for some sweet looking B5 pictures. If you got a nice looking 98-01 B5 put it up here. Trying to get a bunch pictures of nice looking passats for a screensaver. I ask of this mainly because I hate having to sift through all the pictures of the 5.5, which I do not fancy.:thumbdown

    Knowing coil packs could go bad on any car, which years of B5s consistently have issues with coil packs? From my reading, it's mostly early B5s. Mine is a 2001 B5 and I didn't think these would be an issue for the later B5s. An issue I'm dealing with is often related to bad spark plugs and...

    Re: DEPO projectors for B5s - anyone dealt with "Daniel Stern Lighting" for HIDs? I get this snarly email back from Daniel Stern about whether he thinks there is a good HID conversion kit for Depo aftermarket headlamps for B5 Passats. I guess he doesn't like my use of the word "appropriate"...
