    B5 Garage
    Due to the loss of my spare key I am going through the exercise of replacement. Here in New Zealand, my dealer has quoted me $496 for a new key, and on top another $80 for them to program it. Every time I deal with them I feel they are extorting me for everything they can. I have a 2003 W8...

  5. What actions to take when Passat ATQ has been run with the wrong coolant?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I'm finally finishing up all the needed maintenance on the Passat (full timing belt job, valve cover gaskets, PCV system) and I'm wondering what I can do before filling with G12. The previous owner ran the car with green coolant for who knows how long. Is it enough just to fill the...

  9. Any way to tell if my B6 has upgraded ECM?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Thanks to anyone looking at this. Last week I bought a 2010 Passat Wagon. It came with DRL disabled, H&R Springs, and Koni Shocks. It runs pretty well and I was speculating that it might have had the ECM flashed/modified. Is there any way to tell? Maybe using a VAGCOM cable?

Any clues or things to look for that might indicate that the timing belt has been replaced? Is it possible to get started on the replacement job and determine whether or not the timing...
  17. Has anyone ever tried to use Crayola crayons to mask scratches and chips?

    Wax On, Wax Off
    Remember the colored wax that used to be available? Many included what was called a "Chip-stick." I once had a Catalina Blue MK III Golf and the blue version of that stuff worked great. Well, at least until I washed the car, but you can't get chip-sticks anymore. Fast-forward 2 decades later...
