From June. A close friend got married. She didn't want to have her 70-something dad fly out here so she decided she wanted to do the wedding in Newport Beach. We wanted to something big this year since I was turning 50 and my other half, 40. We decided to make it a road trip. "Oh you guys are...
Hi guys (and girls), I've been a member of this board for a while now, but had yet to post my first message on here... so imo it's only appropriate that I would introduce myself.
I'm Stefan, 32 and from Holland, my wife and I have a 2yr old son.
At the moment I own a '03 Passat variant pd130...
Was driving and the engine quit as if I turned the key off. Let sit for an hour and all it does is crank normal but doesn't fire up. Thought for sure it was the fuel pump and as I went to remove the fuel lines there was pressure there. There is also a strong smell of gas as if it's flooding...
I rarely come to the forum considering I'm always busy as hell with school or fixing the car. I recently went to Eurotripper 2 in South Florida and had a good time, only a couple passats there. Here's a phew recent photos.
you can find me on Instagram @andrewhough ; I'm constantly posting...
My 2001.5 Passat has a problem (quirk?) with the LED trip computer display. It always is prefectly bright with no missing pixels when I start driving, but after some time it fades from the top down. It eventually fades down to where only the bottom half is visible. It always returns to full...
Nothing has really changed since the wheels went on other than I got my stubby painted and put on and also worked on the bay a bit. Next I need to get my FMIC put on and relocate the DV.

So I don't think I've ever actually posted pictures of my car on this forum.
Car is a 2003 B5.5 1.8t Tip
6000k HIDs in lows and fog
JOM Badgeless chrome slat grill
Removed front plate tub
OEM Sharana Stub Antenna
Smoked side markers
Full Trim Restore
Here's what I wanted to post on the B5 forum:
My B5.5 is currently on limp mode. My mechanic told me it's due to bad turbo and a valve next to it (I forgot what it's called). The previous owner put a B5 turbo from a junkyard. I don't know if it's caused by incompatibility or just...
So I was on here for a good bit then left these forums for a local one >.< I still like this one since its geared towards the Passat.
Pretty much since the last time I posted I have added:
Smoked tail lights
Painted rear emblem
Flashed with Eurodyne to boost me to just about 200 HP...
I've got about 104k miles on my 98 1.8T, I've owned her for the last 4 years and I'm embarrassed to say, but I've been neglecting her lately.
I guess I got a wild string up my ass, and decided to do a few maintenance things that should have been done about 20k miles ago.
I flushed the brake...
