  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I'm new here, my name is Joseph! So, I have been looking for a long time and finally found a manual W8 Wagon with less than 100k miles on it from original owner that was well taken care of! I have driven a '74 VW beetle as my daily driver for the last 6 years, so this is a bit of an upgrade...

    2000 Passat V6 Just got the car back from the mechanic and they broke some stuff while fixing it. I'm toting it all up to give them a list to fix on a second visit. I went to roll my window up and I did the thing where you pull the switch twice so it will auto-roll up without you having to...

    I posted some picutres of the Bay Area Cobra Club's "End Of Summer" run this past weekend. The destination is Dick DeLuna's "Toy Box". We started in the town of Woodside to gather everyone for breakfast; as it turns out, the Toy Box is only one block off of Hwy 84/Woodside where we parked. It...

    Right has been polished (finished), left has been sanded only um, this is what happens when you don't sand the lights evenly:( I thought I ruined them, polish wasn't doing anything, so I had to go back and sand [much] more vigerously. They finally came out okay... Kinda pisses me off as...

    If you like/watch Clarkson a lot you'll have a fair idea of what features in his list but I have to say I was surprised by one entry. I really do have to take a Phaeton for a test drive one day. TimesOnline Article

    Hi all. A great big thank you for everyone who came out to the 14th GTG, and all of those who helped us put it together! It was wonderful to see so many VWs and Audis come and find us at a different park this year - I'm sure everyone can understand how the hurricanes last year made things a...

    Who would they be??? I've been NOT busy at work and was reading things from b5bel, Scuba2001, et-al and got this very strange notion: What if you could pick anyone here on this forum to develope your B5 from front to back, inside and out; engine, tranny, ICE, etc. Who would your team of...

    We went out to Baja Fresh for dinner, and on the way to Meijer, I remembered Ryan (LIVE4SPD) telling me that you had to be off Woodward by 2000 each night. So we headed over to grab some cruising time in the bunny with the top down. In addition to seeing Ryan out in his wife's Chevy hot rod (is...
