    I just acquired my 2004 1.8 T Passat from a buddy of mine. The car was running fine until I was clearing off some codes that were on it. All having to do with air intake, a misfire on 1 and the coolant temperature sensor. I got all of the codes cleared and the car was running better than the...

    Been a member for a while but haven't posted in a long time. It seems I can't post anywhere now so I may have gotten caught in the noob trap. :-) The ECM in my B5 is finally croaking. I debated just selling it off and buying something new. But I like the car and the body is in pretty good shape...

    Hi there, thanks for checking out this thread! I blew out a couple speakers, and am not interested in buying more monsoon speakers... been there, done that. I have a Pioneer DEH-P5200HD that I've wired in to the monsoon amp for a while now, and am looking to replace the woofers in the rear...

    Hello all, I'm looking for some advice on if I should keep my car! It's a 99 B5 5m leather with 255K miles on it. I bought it new in Jan 99. Still on original clutch. I think it's still a great drive. Daily driver, doing about 100 miles a day right now to work and back. I need to...

    Is there any way of installing a aftermarket HU and keeping the factory 6 disc cd changer in the trunk working.

    There are lots of great threads and products out there to restore your headlights back to new....but what keeps them looking new? I did the 3M restore on my car about 4-6 months ago and within a couple months they started hazing over again. There has to be something out there that doesn't...

    My 03 passat has over 100,000 miles on it, partially due to it being driven cross country twice and my long commute to work. Its my daily driver and I need to be able to keep it around for a long time, but I still want to have some fun and throw away some of my money into it. What are some...

    After a year of driving myself nuts over the prospect of buying a used A6 2.7t, I've decided to keep my 2000 1.8t with 160k miles. I was drawn to the A6 because it looks and drives great, plus with a chip it provides GREAT fun, but I'm more drawn to the goal of driving my Passat until the...

    Now that I've polished up my headlight covers nice and clear what can I use to help keep them that way longer? Do any of the sprays actually work or do I really need to get those plastic covers for my covers? And if so what's the best. So far I've got Plastix, Novus#1, and 303 protector...

    Okay, I've got a question for the folks who are pros at leasing cars. I've always preferred to buy rather than lease, but lately as I've been coming up on the 80k service, timing belt/water pump replacement and potential control arm issues, I'm realizing that the cost of owning a VW may not...

    does anyone know if the Passat can be programmed to have the air circulation on with each start up? I have to turn the air circulation back on every time I start the car up. I would like it to stay on until I chose to cancel it. Can this be done through VAG-COM?

    I like to keep the rear sunshade up, but if I hit a bump in the road, etc, it snaps down. Is there a trick to keeping it up/locking in place that I'm missing?

    Just thought I would stop in to see what the old CB5/PassatWorld has been up to lately. Not much has changed here since Ive traded my Passat. But here's whats been keeping me busy since November. Picked up an '87 Mk2 GTI in October that had a blown timing belt. Picked it up for a fairly...
