  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2002 Passat with a 1.8 T engine. I would like to put in a B6 or B7 3.0 L engine (to be different). Does anyone here know if the engine or engine and cradle will work on the B5 chassis? I believe the engine would fit but don't know if the mounts would line up with the B5. Thanks in...

    According to this, the toe setting is in inches (presumably between front edge and rear edge of the tires) http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairguides/Volkswagen-Cars-2000-05/Wheel-Alignment/Wheel-Alignment-Specifications/_/P-0900c152801bdb0b But I have seen people claiming that the 0.16...

    I just finished the Eibach pro-kit spring drop but kept the brand new KYB shocks that were on the car already thinking maybe I'd upgrade in the future. Well the ride is pretty rough and I'm wondering if having the shocks compressed just 1 inch from stock could contribute to a harder ride?

    I am posting this for a friend who has to regularily trailer in a limited height transport truck a B6 3.6 4MOTION Wagon and needs to find a way to drop the car 3 inches. Going to 4 spares gets him some room but (besides the pain in that) has anyone seen coilovers or other suspension options...

    Got 10 inches and my FWD Passat with snow tires beasted it. The Subaru was a little worse off with all-season even with AWD. :bowdown: Lets see your pictures!

    Okay, this week suddenly the range of my keyfob dropped from it usual 15 feet (under 5 meters) to virtually nothing. From the exterior, it only works if I hold it within 6 inches (15 centimeters) of the left A pillar. My car is a 2003 purchased in November 2002. The remote has never been...

    I'm about to install the ECS CA kit, along with new Neuspeed Softsports and just broken-in Bilstiens. I'll have to set the CA height by taking the hub to fender lip measurement. Since my new springs will change that, I'll have to guesstimate it. So, how much did your Softsports drop your car...
