  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone. New to the forum and couldn't be happier with all the great info here! Long story short, pretty sure at my last oil change, the guys didn't put all the screws back in the skid plate, and a couple days later I ended up dragging it down the highway! Dealer wants over $300 for a new...
  2. B5 Garage
    Hi all, I have looked for this DIY with pics and the thread is so old the pics don't work. I made my own design based on the description in the other writeup, using a single larger duct rather than two small ones. It will have a slight ram-air effect because I'm adding a scoop collector to the...

    Saw the US link post, so I thought I'd post this up for access to the Canadian version (always handy to check): Vehicle Recall < About your Volkswagen
  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So after having these things in my possession for weeks now, and admiring that they are an actual Made in Spain product waiting to go on once my control arm and bolt kit come in I realize something; They don't have a vertical bolt hole, just a solid shaft with bolt notch for the pinch bolt. I...

  6. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    When I was purchasing our new Passat I had trouble locating our car model using American model designations, I know with Hyundai's cars imported to Canada, though slightly more expensive, there were more features on the Canadian models. I'll provide a link below, but here are our model choices...

    I read the thread on shops in ontario but are there any companies like ecs tuning and such on our side of the border? would prefer not to pay for across the border shipping and especially customs. Thanks
  8. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    A little over 1,000 miles and the car rides great and is very comfortable. I noticed something weird on my radio. Just above the Sirrius Dog Icon on the upper right hand side of the display is the word "CANADIAN". I called VW and Sirrius and neither have hear of that before. Radio/system sounds...
  9. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My timing belt's coming due soon, and I'm wondering if anyone living near the border has contemplated driving a bit to get much better maintenance rates? I know it's ideal to have a relationship with my mechanic, but as a more recent owner, I've never gone to a VW mechanic, nor do I wish to go...

    Since I can't get some parts from Raxle.com, they only ship to the States, where would you Canadian drivers suggest I buy my CV Axles from? Perhaps our neighbors to the south know of a good online store. Thanks!

  14. The Showroom

    New for 2012, Yokohama released its Ascend all-season touring tire that integrates oil taken from orange peels to reduce environmental impact and earth a BluEarth designation.
