    When we first bought our car I was told by the seller it needed a "snub mount." At the time I didn't know what that was, but you guys helped me out with that - thank you. Based on info found here, I bought a Greedspeed snub mount - red polyurethane one. This is a fairly soft mount as...

    Has anybody had any experience with the Greedspeed BT software? I'm thinking about using it with my AUG 1.8T w/ Garrett GT2560R (aka GT28R). I've had good experiences with Greedspeed before, but figured I'd ask if anyone has used it...

    Sorry if this isn't the right forum, it was the best fit I could find. I ordered a bunch of maintenance stuff for my "new" car ('99 Passat wagon, 1.8T 5-sp) today from ECS since they're local and I've had good experience in the past. I figured I'd save a few $$ and go with the Greedspeed snub...

    I have wanted to do this for a while but just came across the greedspeed mount and saw the significant price difference I was wondering how much the two differ and what would be my best bet

    I'm curious for those of you who have gone through them. I live in Anchorage, Alaska and am curious to see how long it took for you guys to get your ECU's back. Anchorage is a HUB for Fedex, but not UPS. My problem is I am debating on renting a car while my passat is down and out. It will...

    Okay, I'm about to sink my teeth into this puppy. Their site quotes 179, but when I go further in and enter my zip code it says ground shipping 9 bucks. I don't want the thing ground shipped. That would take forever. I need it overnighted. Isn't that they way most people do it?? Who else...

    So I talked to Anthony today at Greedspeed... according to him, all cars manufactured by VW during the 2001 (including facelift models) model year are prone to early rear brake failure, and that it doesn't matter what brakes I put on my car, they won't last over 12-16k miles (for the rears)...

    Ok- I read through the info on this site about doing a ECU upgrade. this sounds like the easiest method to open up a few more ponies. I checked the greedspeed site and they offer a 1.0 bar ecu remap for $179! geez - that seems too good to be true... any comments/experiences welcomed! Ben

    Yes, you read it right, my poly. front snup mount split and was causing my engine to rock and sound like it was about to come through my hood. I called greedspeed and they said, the part is not under warranty and they could do nothing about the service charges to install and uninstall the...

    I'm gonna be installing either one of these very soon cuz my car shifts like ass. I wanna know your opinions on which one I should go with. The greedspeed one sells for only 13 bucks while apr wants 50 for theirs. Which one is stiffer? Can anyone compre the two? I know that its very unlikely...
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am beginning to assemble a shopping list of parts for a timing belt change and figured I would replace the Snub Mount while I've got the front pulled off. I'm trying to figure out if I should go with the APR or the Greedspeed? If they both are pretty much the same, I would rather pay $13 for...

    Okay, ever since I saw Herman on ClubB5 I've been doing my own installations on everything. And after seeing how easy it was to remove the front end of the car, it was on! I took everything apart that looked as if it was holding the bar that was holding the snub mount into place (don't laugh at...
