  3. Just got my hands on a passat

    New Member Introductions
    I've kind of been lurking on this forum for a month or so since a friend of mine offered a 99 passat to me as a daily driver. It hasn't been running since he bought it and tried to put it back to stock two years ago. I'm a little bit mechanically inclined so I'm hopeful that with the support of...

  5. Do we have a unicorn on our hands? VW skunkworks car?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Back for Sale! My buddy has a line on a Passat that needs work. However once I heard some stats on it it sounded unusual. It supposedly is a 6-speed car with a 3.6 liter turbo diesel engine, which I don't believe was offered in the states by VW. We did some more investigative work with the VIN...

  8. Stick with Monsoon DDin or Aftermarket (hands free and ipod integration)

    Mobile Electronics
    I like OEM, not because it is awesome but because it keeps things simple. As I research adding a ipod kit for my 2004 double din monsoon, I'm considering wow with the new laws handsfree bluetooth would be nice also. So that leads me to an after market double din stereo with blue tooth and...

    If you have a VAG product, go see Murat at Common Street Auto. I went there with a TDI and he his stuff around that special engine. While we were there, he fixed my girlfriends Lancer's squeeky accessory belt. This is all after closing time! By far, the most honest, straightforward...
