    OK, my wife's 2003 1.8t manual has had what I thought was warped rotors. We dealt with them for a while. I finally decided to get all new rotors and pads. When I took off the old rotor on the right side, the outside face was pretty clean but the inside surface was severely pitted and one...

The problem I am finding now is there is no way to access the banjo bolt for the coolant line without having to remove the turbo.... or is there a way...

    Short version of story: I wanna chip my 1.8T with a Stage 1 APR tune, don't wanna be without a car for 3 days. Picked up a used ECU that matches, plugged it in today, and I get thrown to the immobilizer. Done a little searching, seems like either a VAG COM or trip to the dealer is the...

    Hello all I got my '00 B5 Passat about 2 months ago and after seeing this forum I have decided to keep it instead of using it as bait for a Muscle Car. My priority list consist of: Turbo, intercooler, lowering it, tint, new brake rotors, and new wheel and tires.

    Hi, I have a 2003 Passat 1.8 and I live in California so I need to make sure my car will pass emissions, but I also want to start removing unnecessary vacuum lines and parts from my engine bay. I have seen threads about removing all the check valves and rerouting vacuum lines but I wasn’t sure...

    Not sure which one to sell the 2006 B6 2.0T with 47.5k miles or the 2007 B6 2.0T Waggie with 38k and a ton of warranty left. Whichever I sell the other will be my ride...what would you do?
