  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After following my daughter's car in traffic for a few miles, she stopped to let me know that my driver's side light seemed too bright and aimed differently from my passenger light. It was still daytime, so these were my daytime running lights (DRLs). I sort of confirmed her observation next...

    Had these on my 2003 Passat for a few years. The 4 wheels are in decent shape. Old tires on wheels and they have been sitting for about three years. Don't expect the tires to be usable. I just want to get rid of these but would like to see a Passat/Audi enthusiast take possession of them...

    So the passenger side low beam only is weaker than the drivers side. High beams are both fine. Its the same with the oem bulbs and the Sylvania ultras. Lens are 3m polished. Any ideas?

    I see these headlight upgrades and of course I would love to do that haha but I think these stock ones are not bad at all. I have Sylvania zXe bulbs in mine. I'm not sure about the fog light bulbs as I haven't had to change anything with those yet. Itnis just whatever the PO put in them. When...

    As you guys know, while at SoWo we plasti-dipped my wheels to a very bright blaze yellow ( After making the trip, the exhaust heated up the rear driver's side wheel so much, that it began to peel off so I...

    So any of you in eastern (well, GTA and eastwards) Canada will have just dealt with our first big snow storm. Unfortunately I was caught in the thick of it (can you believe 2 hours from Mississauga to Hamilton??), and the snow was so bad on the driveway, I just didn't move my car for 2 days when...

    Anybody think there may be some correlation between the use of the extra bright headlights, i.e., Sylvania Silverstars, and premature hazing of headlight lens covers?

    Should there be a difference when you turn on the headlights VS. DRL's. When I turn on the headlights I don't notice any difference in brightness and night driving sucks with the Passat unless you turn on the brights.

    CEL LIGHT!!!:thumbdown I had Autozone scan the code and it came back as "torque converter solenoid stuck on" or something similar. I have a dealer appointment on Thursday. It all started 2 days ago when I started the car in the morning to leave for work. It cranked, idled REAL rough for about...

    I got a set of the interior xenon lights, and while it looks really nice, they are really dim. I didn't expect it to be that much dimmer, but they are. I did some research on google, and the standard W5W light output is 50 lumens, the center 10W dome festoon is about 120 lumens. The leds...

    when I turn on my lights the driver rear brake light appears to stay lit like my foot is on the brake. Anyone have any ideas? I don't think there is a bulb out.
  14. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    We picked up our Passat test car today, a 3.6 V6, and tonight lots of oncoming traffic flashed their high beams at us as though we had our high beams on — but they were just the low-beam xenons. Is this happening to anyone else? We haven't had this problem with other VW xenons or xenons from...

    Maybe it's just me, but after driving a 330ci with its HID's for a while, and hopping back into my car, my HID's just don't seem as bright as the bimmers. They've been in use for about 4 years+, they're the OEM Hella's, not Look-likes with the kit, and were a VAST improvement when I first put...
