  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It just so happened that I recently became an owner of a 1998 Passat 1.8t. The vehicle belonged to my brother in law, and since he borrowed money for a new car from my significant other and I, we got the Passat as the first down payment. So, a few words about the Passat then. I have never owned...

    He let me borrow his Futuras until I refinish the faces on my sterns. He really did it in an effort to persuade me to trade him wheels. I like the Futuras but not sure I set on 17s especially on a b5.5, as well as being able to go from 9/10.5 inches wide to 8/9 inches wide. Well on with some...

    My brother just purchased a 2002 Passat with 75,000 miles on the clock. It has pretty good service records and all of the service up to current was done at a VW dealership save for the things that the Honda dealer that he bought it from did when they received the car in on a trade. The engine...

    LaTuFu is now playing the game. He is in the early stages and got started on a crystal island. If anyone could possibly help him out by loaning supplies or trading for crystal, please let me know. His coordinates are 17:40 and his town name is Fudom. Any of you guys close to there?
  10. Ikariam
    He is just getting his start in the game. He is 16. He is located at 20:55 He needs a marble island. Who has one in that area he can colonize where he has protection? I am grooming him for PACK... He has had some trouble with alliance Bides already. I threatened them and suggested they not...
  11. Ikariam
    He is part of our alliance but he called me from work and said that his town is being attacked repeatedly by the same guy. I logged into his account and sent supplies away so they couldn't be pillaged and I have some people building in the military. But he is too far away from me to send him any...
  12. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Ok, by now I'm sure you've all seen the pics of the Passat CC, a good looking car and definitely an improvement over the PQ46. That being said, there are some glaring improvements that could easily be made in the design. My brother has modified the picture to what the Passat CC ought to look...

    From the April 2007 issue of C&D: http://www.caranddriver.com/carnews/12563/the-147-mph-hyundai-sonata.html Now, first off, the Hyundai guy is a moron. But that's not the point. The big concern is that more and more of these camera systems are becoming common place, keeping an eye on our...

    My little bro (lives near Baltimore) was driving home the other night and got the flashing coolant light. He took it easy the last few miles home, but said there was no coolant left in the expansion tank when he got there. He topped it off, checked for leaks, then took it to the local...

In theory, your rates won't go up, but might go down. That said, somebody along the line will have to pay for it--and I'd guess that would eventually be...

    So the premise is my brothers Mazda Millenia's transmission gave out on him, he took it to three places for estimates and all were absurdly too high so he decided to just get rid of it rather than deal with it. Plus it was due for belts, hoses, timing belt and this and that and on top of it all...
  19. The Black Hole
    Not necessarily "Big brother," more like my manager. I came into work today to find out that I have a program on my cpu called "Track4WinMonitor" and he's been monitoring my internet activity. I feel violated!!! There's nothing I can do I suppose. I just wanted to rant. I'm still at work...
