    Hello all, I've got an 05 Passat and one of our key FOB's just all of a sudden stopped working. We had just chalked it up to a dead battery so we just didn't use it for a long time. It still starts the car fine, it just doesn't work the locks with the buttons. So today I swapped the battery and...

    Been looking around on the web for a model/ kit for the B5.5, found an assembled one. Anyone know of sites to get ones you can build yourself? Seems like it'd be a fun little project. This site has assembled B5.5/ B5s sedans & variants, kinda cool. Welly Die Casting Factory Limited...

    Once upon a time I had money but no time. Now it's the other way around. Thanks to this forum I was able to identify a leaking motor mount ("Barney Blood" on the floor of my garage) and repair it (the 13mm stubby is a must --- really!). Yesterday I discovered that my (now former) repair shop...

    Maf Nightmare and Turbo Oil Leak I've had my B5 1.8T for around a year now, always battled with the oil leakage causing my Maf sensor to fail all the time. So I managed to still drive my car and fix it every so often, driveable.. Just recently about a month or so ago, the car started to die...

    I'm sure the regulars here are sick of hearing from me by this point but I've got a new clue that may get to the bottom of this. To review: excessive vibration in gear, reverse or drive at a stop under braking. Bonus symptom: high frequency vibration around 60mph under acceleration. New...

    So while driving to work today I received, MUCH to my surprise the STOP(or die) as I like to call it, message. It alerted me to something of oil pressure. But when I drove home from work I couldn't for the life of me get the message to come back on to read it fully. Anyone know what that message...

    For a couple weeks I've started to notice a chirp/ticking when the car is cold and I accelerate. The chirp seem to increase with the amount of acceleration. After a mile or so it goes away and I don't seem to lose any power. Idles fine and throttling in idle doesn't produce sound. Now at...

    Seriously, 56K users will die, along with any other Lambo, and/or Ferrari lovers. A buddy of mine, Justin... Is over in Germany with the AirForce and spent a weekend at the tittay bars, and a day at the Nurbingring this past weekend. He posted all of the pictures over at www.drunkdubs.com and...

    Here's the long waited underbody photos. Took these when I went back today to put a resonator in - it was too darn loud to bear without one. Here are the original rear view photos I've posted previously that I took from Import GT Show which took place at at Worcester, MA on...
