  2. Pwned by ice chunks

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    While cruising up a delightful mountain road I came across some fairly large ice chunks in the middle of the road, didn't really have much choice but to go over them due to oncoming traffic. So I hit them with my decently lowered 4mo and think all is well until I look at the dash, all the gears...
  3. Arg. Ice sucks.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Oh the weather outside is frightful... and ice is so delightful... Winter storm yesterday, and the snow piled up. Was coming to a stop light probably not going any faster than 10 mph, and hit a big patch of ice. The ABS went crazy, and I was like Kristi Yamaguchi and skated right on in to the...

  5. ABS on ice

    B5 Garage
    2000 V6 4Motion manual estate (wagon) I've never been happy with the ABS on this car since I bought it in December 2002. On slippy roads the ABS seems to cut in too soon and on really slippy surfaces the car simply doesn't stop! The ABS pumps away and the car continues at the same speed. I've...
  6. Black ice = Very close call

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was on the taconic heading back from hyde park to NYC on saturday when it started snowing. I had my pirelli snow tires on and was driving nice and slow, passed by about 10 to 12 cars and suv/pickups that were crashed in a 10 mile portion. Then I hit a patch of black ice myself, car starts to...

    Hi, I'm in the UK and I've been unable to find this item - I've had a whole bunch of problems with my VW dealer, the standard RCD300 stereo and my iPod so I'm looking at getting shot of the standard stereo (I think I might throw it out of a speeding train....) I've tried to find a facia...
  8. Is the Ice Link still available - or is there another good solution out there?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just bought a 2004 Passat - Any way, I'm looking for a good solution to integrate the iPod to the factory head unit (Double DIN, Monsoon, changer in the trunk) As the Passat does not have any good cubbies for storage that are easily accessible while driving, I'm looking at using a Pro Clip mount...

  11. I tried out the new turtle wax ice...

    The Showroom
    So after realizing that the time it took to put on zymol, and the short amount of time it was effective made me try new waxes, this is the new turtle wax ICE: I like it, looks just as good, and is easier to put on, and beads water just as good, but its better in the sense that you can...

  15. Does your ICE Link connected Ipod power down?

    Mobile Electronics
    I could have sworn that my ICE Link connected Ipod used to go into sleep mode (screen goes blank) shortly after turning off the car. Now the screen seems to always stay on. I checked it this morning before putting the key in the ignition and it was on with the Dension logo screen displayed...
  16. ICE Link Charging options

    Mobile Electronics
    I just installed an ICE Link plus in my Passat and I'm really enjoying it. I see it has three charging option; no charge, charge while playing and continue to charge for 2 hours after playing. I had it set to charge while playing and the Ipod charge ran down to nothing. I've upped it to the 2...
