    Hi, first-time VW owner here, 👋 So I recently bought a ‘17 Passat 1.8T R-Line, want to do a few things to it over time and was wondering what to stay away from. I just wanted to add a BOV, coilovers, cat back exhaust, and change the wheel/tire fit to make it more flush. TCU chip or something...

  5. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm curious myself how I would handle this for the Passat, but a friend has a 1999 Subaru that has once or twice thrown a blinking CEL, just for a few seconds. I'm assuming all makes/models would log this somewhere, but he says Autozone is unable to find anything with a scan. Is that because...

    My old tires (don't even remember what they were at this point) were near the wear bars. In the interest of "refreshing" my car ('04 1.8T GLS Wagon), I went ahead and replaced the tires. 195/65/15 H rated. Damn, I wish I still had my old tires so I could piss on them and then set them on...

I have a Samsung Tab2 10.1, a wallmount bracket, and a dock...
