  1. An honest (but relatively dumb) question about coolant

    B5 Garage
    So this is the first time I've owned a car that needed a specific coolant and I don't have any problems with that... our local autoshop carries pentosin pentofrost SF which I assume is correct since ecstuning carries the same stuff and lists it as g12 compliant and safe for our cars... (2002...
  2. Need HONEST and Unbiased Opinions

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I am in dire need of a better car for my daughter and I. The Passat seemed attractive at first until I started reading about all the possible problems. I have already read several threads about consumer reports and other reviews. Seems most people on here really love the Passat and do not...
  3. NYC honest inspection garages?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Anyone in the NYC area that can recommend an honest inspection garage? Willing to go around manhattan, LIC, queens, brooklyn areas. Also, what price should I expect to pay? Some shops are quoting around $37-$50. I don't want to be going to a shop that's going to try and swindle me into getting...
  4. Need honest opinions about my 30v

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I purchased a 30v a few months back, 99 white with 120k. The guy thought he blew the engine, so he sold me the whole car with 17' ROH rims for $300. I open the engine and find no bent valves, nothing is wrong other than a missing tensioner in the head, he must of just messed up the timing. So I...
  5. You can trust me, honest!

    The Black Hole
    Banner from Fox News' web site: If a news service feels compelled to say that they are "fair and balanced" are they admitting that perhaps there might have been some doubt about that in the first place? It would be like my wife wearing a t-shirt that says "A caring mother". What next? A new...

    B5 Garage

  10. Has there really been a honest debate about global warming?

    The Black Hole
    http://www.denverpost.com/harsanyi/ci_3899807 Before several of you come out screaming (typing actually), notice he is not denying global warming. Instead he questions our contributions, how much we can change it, and how long it will last. He is also really questioning how this debate...

  13. Honest, what is the difference between lowering springs for B5 and B5.5 cars?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok...I have to be honest. I've owned 4 B5's before and just pick up another B5.5 just last month and they have all been 1.8T's. The reason I'm asking is because on my last b5 wagon, i picked up a set of 5.5 H&R springs that fit just fine on my car with no fitment issues nor ride discomfort...
