    How can I remove the chrome trim off the front and rear bumper? I need to prepare the bumpers for a fresh paint; clear coat peeling (seems to be a common issue on the VW and Audi I own/owned of that generation). Also: the "build" sticker (normally in the trunk; spare tire well?) is missing...

    I see a lot of sites with the picture being all black but indeed when ordered they have chrome on them. Does anybody know where to get an actual all black one?

    Good morning. Our history with Passat is we had a Q7 and decided to downsize and get better mileage. The Passat TDI fit that bill. Gets great mileage and has decent amount of room for a car. We had expected the same quality as the Audi and are very disappointed in that respect. Almost...

    Does anyone know how the chrome strip is attached to the door panels and dash of the W8? I have a friend with a TDI and she wants the chrome. Do they just glue on or would we have to change the door cards and dash?

    I'm looking at blacking out the chrome on the bullet 1.5 and I stumbled across Plasti Dip. Has anyone used this product? It looks too good to be true honestly, but I like the idea of being able to peel it off if it looks like crap. If this is a load of crap, can anyone recommend a better simple...
