  1. Wheel Bearings - Convince Me Mine Are Good

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I was working on the wife's car tonight, 4 hours of just nothing but pure hell. I got the passengers side suspension back on the car, yeah 4 hours for that. (we need some new smileys - I need one with a gun to the head) I swear putting that suspension on tonight was like reeling in a 600lb...
  2. Convince me to get a B6 wagon, please!

    New Member Introductions
    Hiya all It's been a really long time since i've been here and I'm on the fence about getting back into the Passat game. I've been driving a Jeep for the last 5 years after my ex-father in law totaled my B5.5 wagon. I absolutely loved driving, riding in and generally being around that car...
  3. On the fence about water/meth, let me convince you with pretty pics

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, I finally got my water/meth pump setup fixed, and wow, what a difference. Now when I it the gas in 3rd I can feel the tires wanting to let go at 130+ km/hr. Here's a comparison of logs taken at about 28-30 PSI in 3rd gear, with and without water/meth. In both cases, the A/F ratios are about...
  4. George (Toronto5.5) Needs Help: Convince him he still loves his Passat

    Canada
    George is discouraged that his B5.5 is costing him too much is repairs. He tell me today that he's considering a Mazda 5 Hatch with the same mileage as his Passat. Convince him to stick it out with the Passat!

    We can only have 6 Characters in OR :( A few ideas I have are: GRN PMP (ever seen the actual Diesel pump at the gas station) F HYBRD (For Fuck Hybrids and their earth killing batteries) I bet this will go over well with all of the brainwashed people here in OR... TDI WGN (if you need help...
  8. Convince Me Not to Get a 2005 Subaru Legacy GT

    Anything Auto
    Looks like this might just be my next car. I've searched and searched day and night, and can't think of too many cars that would suit me better right now. Frankly, I can't think of one. AWD 250hp 250ft/lbs. Decent gas mileage Turbo Manual option + More of an excuse to browse NASIOC's off-topic...
  9. Need help to convince wife to buy a V6 4M Sedan instead of an Accord or Camry...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm looking at a few local '02-'03 V6 4Motion Sedans (GLXs only) w/ fairly low miles (under 45K miles) that comes w/ 2yr warranties under $18K. But my wife's train of thought is "if we're gonna spend that much, why not get a Camry or Accord that's a little newer?" or "2002/2003 is a little too...
  10. Convince me to stay with VW

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I’m considering selling my 03 Passat GLX V6 Wagon and staying away from VW forever. I thought I would toss this out and see what all you VW owners out can talk me out of it. Don’t get me wrong; VW’s are amazingly engineered (maybe over engineered), thoughtfully designed, well built, and a...

  12. Convince me to stay in my B5

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know that this is probably a stupid thread, but here goes. I love my car. The feel of it, the way the turbo spools, the way it sounds, the clean european lines of it. The only two things is that when I bought the car, I didn't know that the Tiptronic tranny could only handle about 300 lb/ft...
  13. Please convince me to forget the bmw 323i!

    Anything Auto
    Well, I am in the market for a car and currently have a tacoma which I absolutely love. But I'm looking for something with some more style and better ride around town. However, I am not willing to give up my truck so my second car has to be affordable. I was seriously considering a 99 bmw 323i...

    Anything Auto
    Convince me to trade in the Jetta for a Passat wagon, pics please ! This is what I have right now. Its a 95 GLX in mint shape. I really love the car and the VR6 is a ton of fun. The car is lowered and with a rear 28mm swa + 17's it handles incredibly well. However, after buying a...
