    I have a 2015 Passat Limited Edition 1.8T and will be looking to improve handling and suspension compliance. A few extra ponies under the hood won’t hurt. As I can no longer ride my gentleman’s express (2000 Honda VFR800 Interceptor) due to permanent nerve damage in my arm/shoulder, I’m turning...

    I have a rear right door lock mechanism that is not opening from the outside, even directly pulling on the external handle metal cable with my hand. I believe the part# is 3B4839016B, but I cannot verify without tearing the door apart (and that would take considerable time and swearing). My...

    I have a pair of OEM axles out of a B5.5 Passat. These will work on any B5.5 automatic drivetrain. The boots are good but would recommend installing new outer boots and swap out the outer joints (left-right, right-left) for a brand new feel. Asking $70.00 plus shipping for the pair. Located...

    While I see no real issue getting 2 carseats (not boosters) in the rear of a B5.5 if they go behind the passengers, anyone have any luck finding a way to get 2 seats in and still fit a 3rd passenger? I suspect not, but wanted to double check. Trying to prolong keeping the B5.5 as long as...

    Guys, a couple of years ago I had to reglue the gray clothing of my headliner. I couldn't afford at that time paying someone to do it so I did it myself and I went as good as an amateur could go. The thing is that the gray coating is starting to fall AGAIN and this time I'm seriously...

    Hey all, I am defiantly new to the VW scene but not new to cars by any means. I just picked up a 2014 Passat TSI. Fun car so far, bought it mainly as a family ride and commuter. Probably won't be doing much performance wise to her since she is an automatic but will defiantly be doing wheels and...

    Has anyone that's been around in the VW world noticed something? There are basically two factions of people you see at VW shows or events. A) The air-cooled crowd: Typically older people that grew up in these models, they like the relative simplicity of the mechanics, they're nostalgic, and...

    So self-driving cars (SDC) are obviously inevitable. The only questions really, are when will they become the norm and how and when will most everyone be "forced" to use them? My best guess today is that the SDC norm will be here within 10 years and the force-out of non-SDCs (NSDC) will be...

    Slow day at work today. I found this rather amazing and shocking at the same time. These cars look new!

    I need to unload one my cars. I have way to many cars in my driveway. I'm caught between selling my '04 GLX and my '98 GLS. There are pros and cons to keeping either one of the cars for a daily driver, but the more I think about it, the harder the decision is becoming. Obviously the GLX has way...

    Shout out to anyone interested in cruising to the Larz Anderson Cars N' Coffee in Brookline, MA on the 27th. I'm hoping to be in a group with the RS to cruise up from Boston and wanted to give a heads up to anyone in the area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello I am new to cars, my 05 passat-wagon is misfiring badly while idling, and I do not have the cash to take it in to someone in town. Can I fix a misfiring engine by myself? What computer cable should I buy to hook the car up to my laptop? Any other basic tools I should buy? Any help is...

    Hello Everyone, This is a topic I've been trying to comprehend for some time. Perhaps some of you guys are as curious and perhaps, like me, alarmed. I'm not a professional car person, ie, I don't now or have I ever earned my living in that industry. Like many of you, I like cars, I like driving...

    So my '04 V6 has been totaled by by insurance company due to hydrolocking. The rims and tires are in better shape than my wife's Wagon. If I choose to exchange them between car before it's picked up by insurance company next week should I put them in the same place as they are right now, FL...
