    Greetings, I have a 2007 Wagon and it seems that there is a draft of cold air that comes in to the car even when the windows are all up and the heat is on. I can not figure out where it comes from but it goes across the front passenger seat-any insight on this---is it coming from a vent? Thanks, JP

Here is what I've put together so far, couple areas i have questions on and...

    I've seen multiple people saying they've used them for their Boost Gauges (Pillar Pods mainly) and on their site they state they don't have a Pod for the B5.5. However, I've seen lots of people with them in their pictures. If it /is/ possible to mount it on a B5.5 (2004 Passat) then which type...

    Here's some shots of my new gauges; I've seen a few requests for pictures. Also in one shot you can kinda get an idea of what the W8 overhead console does.

    Well, sort of I THINK. They never claim that it fits the B5.5. They say its for model years 1998-2001. And they add this This seems to be a legality to cover to cover their butts. It never says it doesn't fit the B5.5. Then again that alone wouldn't lead me to believe it realy does fit...

    Okay, can anyone think of a reason why I might feel a cold draft with the heater on hot, but low fan sometimes? It seemed to be while I was braking and rounding a sharp right bend. I thought I was imagining things the first time it happened but it just happened again tonight in the same place...

    While I would love to get the spp pod, 265 is expensive. 42 draft designs doesnt make their pod for the passat, and has no plans to at least as of last april. Has anyone successfully adapted the 42 draft designs pod to the passat? The apillars are a different shape.
