    Has anyone else experienced this whistling sound at road speeds? It's been there all the time since I bought it four years ago. This is just pure interest and I'm not really worried about it. Except at times I break down cry myself to sleep thinking of it :D I know, this is a really bad sound...

    Mines leaking gear oil due to running over a rock, pretty big one at that. Could I have just knocked something like a gasket, loose in the tranny? If I do need a whole new tranny any suggestion where to get a reliable one and anything special I might need besides the tranny? Thanks for any help...

    I am sure many of you have an engine cover like this, with the VW logo emblem missing. I have had my 2001 GLS since 2006 and it never really bothered me that much until now. Well, luckily I found my emblem lodged down in my engine bay about a year after I bought it so I have the original. My...

    Thinking about pulling the trigger on a 2008 Lux B6 Wagon with dynaudio, but I really want bluetooth. The pioneer HU was recommended to me as a replacement for the stock unit, but I was told not all the steering wheel controls would work. I'm also wondering how well it would integrate into the...

    I'm in NYC. Bought a 03 Passat at a local Honda dealer. Car is great, what I have a problem with is a sunroof (it does not open), my rear passenger seat footwell gets flooded with each rain (car's parked outside). I tried looking for different sources of clogging and I'm almost sure now that...

    A passat owner called into the Car Guys radio program this morning ... I can't remember her vehicle year. She explained how they have, on occasion, had an inch of water on their passenger side carpet anytime it rains. Apparently, their permanent strategy had been to put a tarp over the car...

    I know it's a long shot, but some of the pros around here seem to know about a lot other than just VW specific systems. My wife just got an '06 Highlander and I'd like to upgrade her single disc to a 6 disc in-dash changer. I've got some questions, but it's probably more suited to PM... so if...

    Bought my '99 1.8t new back in 1998. Since then I've moved into an '05 Honda S2000, while my wife has taken over my beloved B5. Seems I recall there being a 10Y/100K drivetrain warranty offered at the time, but was changed soon after (body update?). Does this sound familiar to anyone else, or...

    This is the only place that I have found that has a Hella Projector for the drivers side. It is broken but I can fix it. This is a discontinued model from what Im told. I bid on the pair they had on ebay once before but they canceled my bid and now they blocked me from bidding. Just curious...
