  6. Videos of SoCal Exotic gathering (56K, forget it.)

    Anything Auto
    This video is the SoCal drive. I don't know about you but there's not enough digits on my feet and hands to count the number of Lambo's there. At least 5 Carrera GT's. The video lasts about 5-6 minutes I think.
  7. Happy 10th birthday to the B5 Passat (56k, forget it!)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    10 years ago this month, midsize car buyers had a completely new choice on dealer lots. VW had struggled through much of the mid-1990s, seeing market share plummet and build quality suffer in many models. Enter the Audi-derived B5 platform, used for the Passat from 1998-2005 (with relatively few...

  9. Forget the L hose, try the Z tube!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After about two months of trying to sort my funky idle, I finally found one problem on Monday night - a crack in the tube that runs off the PCV breather box to the vacuum system. I still have the SAI pump code to deal with and a bad O2 sensor wire. Tell me how the stupid wire fails... tell me...
  10. Forget big brake kits, who else wants electronic wedge brakes?

    Anything Auto
    I just read an article about Siemens developing an electronic wedge braking system to replace current hydraulic brakes. I think it looks very promising...hopefully I'll be able to get it in my next (German) car at the end of the decade. PopSci...
  11. Forget N. Korea, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Iraq, this PROVES the end of days!

    The Black Hole
    I, an individual who aligns with an often left of center political viewpoint, agree with Pat Buchanan. That's right, culture war spewing, southern border wall building Pat Buchanan. has anyone listened to him lately? He sounds much more moderate than he used to be. I have no quotes or links, but...
  12. Forget Claybar, buy a buffer...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Well thanks to the mad men who HAD to make me spend more money on something else for my car, I got a buffer and claybar this weekend. Claybar is alot of work for what you get. I was like I went to the gym and did a tricept workout, and that was after only doing a foot by a foot section of my...
  13. Forget the GolfII ... RS6 on the Autobahn (127MB Video)

    Anything Auto
    Hi, this video shows a RS6 Variant tuned to the max. It was taken by a French who works for MTM (not shure about that). MTM is showed in this video but doesn't want to be connected with this. Several people asked the local police about the video and now they search for the man who drives the car...
  14. War on terrorism? Someone forget about Osama?

    The Black Hole
    Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said yesterday that the search for Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) has gone completely cold, with no recent intelligence indicating where he and his top lieutenants are hiding. More than three years after al Qaeda's attacks on the World Trade Center and...
  15. Forget Jetta - I was just mistaken for an RS6

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    8) I woke up early to meet PZ and ppena down at Einsteins Bagels where guys from the BMW club were starting an all day drive. The thread is in Events for the curious. Anyway I was about the fourth guy to show up and as I walked in I was asked "Hey is that an RS6?" Told them it was a Passat and...

  17. Don't forget to check your battery

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Summer heat is in full blast down here, and I had some hesitation starting the car yesterday. Easy stuff first - I checked the battery electrolyte levels: I could see the top edges of the plates high and dry above the electrolyte :shock: ...added approx. 3/8 of a gallon of distilled water to...

    Anything Auto
    Well, I am in the market for a car and currently have a tacoma which I absolutely love. But I'm looking for something with some more style and better ride around town. However, I am not willing to give up my truck so my second car has to be affordable. I was seriously considering a 99 bmw 323i...
