  1. No Continental tires at Costco, Michelin, Bridgestone, or BF Goodrich???

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi folks, Have had the Continental PureContact tires on there the last few years but they're shot and need new rubber before winter rolls into NJ. The car is stock and the original Goodyear tires were noisy as hell. So I'm looking for a good quality tire that isn't noisy and which will work...

  3. Costco battery PN for B5.5?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My '02 has been slow to crank lately, especially with the recent cold (by L.A. standards) winter weather, so I figured it would be a good time to replace my original, six-year-old battery before it leaves me stranded. I've heard good things about Costco's Kirkland batteries, and I was wondering...
  4. Free Nitrogen at your local neighborhood Costco..

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    :D I saw a thread by vwwagondriver and wanted to add that with membership to Costco- you get free nitrogen in your tires. You can also take a buddy with you that has a Costco card and they will still fill you up. Did this today in Jville, Fla-- i pulled to the front, they let down the air and...
  5. Tires @ COSTCO

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Just thought I'd post on this topic regarding COSTCO wholesale membership. Not sure if you guys have COSTCO's in your neck of the woods, but I am in the market for a set of 4 tires on my 03' GLX wagon. I have settled on the Michelin Pilot Exalto's H rated standard 16" tires. Tire Rack has...

After breaking my back getting the damn battery out of under the winshield protect of my 02' passat, i put in my new battery, install the terminals and as i look for the battery exhaust hole, i realize that the...

  8. Costco gas?

    New Member Introductions
    Anyone know if Costco gas is any different than normal gas station gas (Exxon, Mobile, BP)? Costco is always a lot cheaper for regular and premium (they don't have a middle grade at my Costco). Is the Costco premium ok for 1.8T?

  10. Funny thing happened at Costco Gas Station tonight

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was pumping gas at Costco and this guy in a '02 530i comes over and admiring my B5 and asks if it was an A4 or is it an A6 and I told him neither, it's just a VW Passat. He was shocked but I told him that they pretty much share many components and actually Audi is owned by Volkswagen. :crazy...
