    Poor ol' 98 tried hard to die before the big six digits, but luckily I had it back in my hands for the big 100 at 100. (It had been in the shop from 6/3 to 7/3 - new rack, new driveshaft, CV boot, two engine leaks, and when I picked it up I got my first ever CEL as I drove off the lot --...
  2. Anything Auto
    It's one thing to join the 400 mile club with 50% highway driving, but I joined it with about 35% highway driving and 65% city and suburban driving. Fuel economy was the 2nd best I've ever had for a tank as were the total miles driven on the tank. 93 Octane 89 Octane

    Well I finally hit 160K km or 100K miles! I'm glad to report that other then normal maintenance items (timing belt, brakes, etc) my car has given me zero problems :-). I have a 2001.5 V6 GLX. I religiously change the oil every 8K km (5k miles) and have used synthetic 5W40 since the day I...

    Car: 1999 Passat 5 speed 1.8T Milage: 113k Mods: K04 Turbo, GIAC K04 Program, 5 bar FPR, TT exhaust/Downpipe, Forge DV. Current milage on the tank is 435 miles. Light just went on. I think that means 2 gallons left (if someone can confirm). This took a lot of work and patience. Basically it...

    It took a good long time, but I had toddlers running around my garage playing with the tools I was using and walking off with them. Found some sockets and wrenches up in the tree house...only after wasting an hour looking for them! Lost probably 3 hours over the course of the weekend to this...

    I went a MINDBOGGLING 405.4 miles between fillups. I got the fuel light @ 370, and really started getting scared @ 390, but I stuck with it and finally joined the EXCLUSIVE 400 MILE CLUB. It took me 15.37 gallons to get to 405.4, but it was worth it. The gas milage was only my 3rd best to date...

    Removed the front sway bar this morning for kicks and it really does make the car feel better. Cornering is improved a lot as the car doesn't feel like it wants to push the front end out anymore. Drove on the freeway and felt no adverse affect. I'm sold! I'm impressed with it and such a simple...

    I did not think that so many people were really into there passats. I have a 2004 1.8T in blue. I have not done any modifications to it. I want to tint the windows, get a clear grille in the front and some day new rims. When I figure out how to but pics on here I will post. Alex

    Today on the way home from work I passed the 100,000 mile mark in my 1999 1.8T manual. Here are a few scary facts about my car. 1. Still using original rear brake discs. 2. Only changed brake pads once (@ 60K miles front and rear). 3. Never changed pollen filter. 4. Always used Mobil 1...
