  3. Go faster, stop sooner, corner flatter?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Which stickers or decals will make my V6 go faster, stop sooner, and corner flatter? I have a black one, so color is not a concern. Everything goes with black. It's the new black.
  4. Faster without getting louder?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello all, I have owned my Passat for a couple years now and I have always felt that it performs well, but not as good as It should, I am interested in possibly improving some areas of the cars performance but I really would like to avoid making the car any louder if possible so I am looking for...
  5. Is my Passat faster than it should be???

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    First of all I just bought this car last week from an older couple. It has 135,000 on the clock and even during the test drive it seemed a little faster than expected. Didn't think much of it, at the time. I went through all the records (which they had a ton), and they have done everything...

  8. Do fronts wear faster than rears?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Title says it. I'm just trying to decide whether to rotate my tires one more time or let it be. I have bit more tread on fronts than rears, so I expect I should leave them that way. 1.8T, FWD. I've only rotated them twice in 40k miles, and have about 12-15k miles of tread left.

  11. Lexus LF-A even faster than GTR Spec-V

    Anything Auto
    I knew that the GTR Spec V spanked the ZR1 at the ring, but I didn't know that the LF-A did it too. It's amazing how fast this car is. When you look at the video @ 1:07 or so, the corner exit looks like it's impossible for it to be that fast like it's speed up like they used to do on Knight...

  15. Why's the Saab 9-3 Linear so much faster than a B5.5 Passat?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I mean the weight to horsepower ratio is about the same, but even the 175 bhp Saab 9-3 linear destroys a Passat 1.8T in 0-60 and 1/4 mile. I'd love to get a 9-3, but I don't want another unreliable European car unless it's certified pre owned and although I can afford a 2003 Saab 9-3 linear, I...
  16. Left Turn Signal Blinks Faster When Brake Pressed and Head Lights are On

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello, I've searched and read all the posts on fast turn signals but was unable to find someone with an exactly similar problem. My left turn signal works fine except when my head lights are on AND I press the brake, then it blinks much faster. I have previously replaced the flasher relay...

  18. 1.8Turbo faster than 1.8Supercharged?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Do you think a relatively stock 1.8T with manual transmission would out accelerate a Mercedes C230 1.8Supercharged with automatic transmission? I am only concerned with straight line acceleration. Passat in question: 2003 1.8T GLS Lowered suspension Grill cut out infront of scoop, no prescreen...
