    I'm in the middle of diagnosing a hideous and intermittent vibration/thumping on my 08 Passat 2.0t 6spd Manual. I'm curious if anybody has put the P7 Cinturatos on their Passat and had a bad experience with them? My vibration started after I had these tires put on (ordered them off of Amazon...

    B5.5 1.8T 4Motion w/TIP Back story: I purchased a NS Boost Gauge from ECS Tuning back in July. I had my local indy VW tech install it. Recently, I had Revo stage I software installed.

    Son nailed a guard rail with my02 passat and I will be replacing bumper cover and passenger fender. The impact destroyed the radiator support where they bolt on top left and right side.

    Hi All - Just wondering if anyone has installed the 3C0 907 530 Q revision in their B6 Passat?

    Hey guys! With all the negative dealer experiences that are out there, I just want to give a shout out and some props to Fox Valley VW in Schaumburg, IL.

    I'm looking at some point to replace either my current 1999 1.8T Passat or my wife's 1997 Audi A6 2.5TDi (140hp) with a Passat: either a 1.9TDi with 130 bhp, or a 2.5TDi V6, mainly to get better fuel economy, whilst keeping a decent bit of power. Remember gas prices in the UK are now quite steep...

    Hey All, I am getting ready to call around and schedule work for my '03 4Mo sedan under the new recall. I'm a new VW owner (well 7 months new) and have no experience with any VW dealers in the state. I live in Columbia, so either KC or STL is an option, both areas are about the same distance...
