    New Member Introductions
    My daily is a 2000 1.8T and I've had it for about 4 years now, 130,000 miles on it right now. Now that I'm single that leaves me with a lot of extra time and money (who knew?) and I've been fixing what I can on it for the past few months. What I've done so far: - Repair the oil cooler (temp...
  4. Finally did ICM delete and 2.0 FSI coilpack to my AEB

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had the parts sitting here for quite some time and finally just got under the hood and wired it all in. My only question at this point is what spark plugs should I use to take advantage of the 2.0 coil packs? I have a K04 turbo (Borg Warner) and APR stage 1 software, FMICm exhaust, etc, the...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

  8. Finally lowered and dialed

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey all just wanted to show my progress with her in the last month or so. Fitted raceland coilovers all around. This job was a pita and involved replacing both pinch bolts. Other than that a huge learning experience. Also had to give the wheels a new fresh coat of paint because the previous...

I'm gonna get a tread started so I can ask lots of stupid questions and post pictures. Please excuse...

    Mobile Electronics
    Hi everyone, I'm posting this thread as I'm hoping it may help others. When I initially bought my VW MFD-D Sat Nav and retrofitted it into my Passat B5, I was sad to see that it gave the error "unable to read disc". So I tried many things, firstly I bought a genuine disc secondhand off of...

    The Showroom
    I have had various Audi's & VW's over the years but they were all bought as necessary purchases where as my new one was a definite look , look , look then buy , with a lot of crap looked at on the journey. Really happy with the car and intend to keep it pretty standard except for some sort...

  19. Finally after 4 years... I finally scored. Yes! Efin' A! Holy Crap!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been on the prowl for 4 years. Came close to trapping a few, but was ultimately denied in the end each time, almost to the point of loosing faith in my quest. But today I'm here to tell you I finally captured the beast. And yes it really does exist. Well, I gotta go. I'll let the avid...
