I posted this on our Facebook page but want some more input if possible. My 2004 Passat is at 169K. Timing belt and water pump were replaced by dealer at 108K along with tranny filter/fluid. Radiator and rear coolant flange were replaced a couple years ago. I have some new minor coolant leak(s)...
I have the opportunity (?) to buy a 2003 W8 sedan that the owner says won't start - it just clicks. It sounds like if the cause is a defective starter, the engine must be raised to gain access. He says he thinks the problem is internal, not the starter. What internally would cause clicking ?

So, I've been shown the final missing link to my 'tailgate unlocked with all doors / tailgate operation via remote' coding mod: A pair of springs that install on the tailgate gas springs, which will (effectively) give you a power-lift tailgate. Pretty cool, eh?

Other than that, for $800 i would get
Passat wagon, 4motion, V6, 113K miles.

So I am looking at finally buying my first Passat W8. Wanted this car since I was 14 but alas I didn't have my licence (or the money) and couldn't persuade my parents to part with AUD $100K to buy a Passat, since they were happy with their B5 2.8 V6 Tiptronic.
I am planning to buy a 2003 1.8t sedan and I wanted to get your opinions before proceeding.
First of all, I am going to pay $300 for it.
