    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all! So, I've been shown the final missing link to my 'tailgate unlocked with all doors / tailgate operation via remote' coding mod: A pair of springs that install on the tailgate gas springs, which will (effectively) give you a power-lift tailgate. Pretty cool, eh? The product...

    Off-Topic Forum
    A couple of months ago, I began the 2016 VW season by going to an event I had never been to before, the Milwaukee VW Club's show. I was not only pleasantly surprised to see about 4-5 Passats there, but someone also tagged my car with a card inviting me to join this FB group. Turns out they're...

    Hey Guys / Gals A couple of months ago I picked up a 99 2.8l Auto Passat with only 81k miles on it. Haven't had any major problems yet, just a few little "curiosities" as the previous owner stated, but that's what the Google Search is for. Since then I've picked up another 99 Passat w/ the 1.8T...

    New Member Introductions
    "Hi. My name is Dave." "Hi Dave." I've been a Passat owner for just five months and already I'm reluctant to admit it to people because I just can't take that look people give me anymore! You bought a Volkswagen, did you? And how old is it? (14 years) And how many miles? (83,000). When I tell...

  16. B5.5 Carbon Fiber Hood - Group Buy Feeler

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm talking with VIS Racing about doing a small run of carbon fibers hood for the B5.5. As you may know, there are only like 4 CF hoods in existence for the B5.5, and no one currently manufactures them. For VIS to do a small custom run would require them to have 20 orders (19 plus myself). I'm...

    First time posting and first Passat in the my driveway. Nice little 2000 B5 with the 1.8t 20V engine. I live just north of Buffalo, NY and found this car in late January of this year and it served me well since with just a few concerns. Looking forward to learning more about the sedan.

    Just found this group and it's a real help. I'm on my second Passat so i think it's about time I had a place to bounce ideas around to see if I'm on point or way off base. I love German engineering,but German repair prices, not so much. Thanks in advance for the help and advice.
