  1. The Driver's Beat
    It's been awhile since I've had a decent drive. Too many non-drivers on the road doing just about everything BUT driving. Also where I live we have a huge A-hole factor, lot of bullies on the road with not much to do but cause havoc. Having a nice German sedan is not much fun when you cannot use...

    Did F4D Lighting just scam me $199? Good evening, I recently went to Home - F4D Lighting and saw they had the LED inner tails for sale. I figured for $199.00 I might as well jump on it as I know for a fact that it's something I myself will never get around to doing. On August 6, 2014 I made...

    flasher goes randomly and trunk release on the dash or the tailgate itself seems to be acting up.

    Lately I have been lucky to get 25mpg with my 00 passat 1.8t ATW tip. Usually I can get around 30mpg before I did the plugs and oil. I recently changed plugs, oil, and oil filter. No apparent vacuum leaks according to my boost gauge (vacuum stays solid at idle and no bouncing), and its not...

    Germanfilters.com has been great in the past with fast shipping along with their low prices. I've placed three orders with them between 2006-2010 and never once had a problem. I finally got tired of trying to catch oil change specials with a decent filter at Autozone, so I placed an order with...

    Too damn cold and the tires are not suitable for snow use. The way winter's going this year, it seems I bought it just in time to keep driving the Passat just like old times. I gotta say though, the Passat is much better as a cold-weather car than a hot-weather car. None of the clicks and pops...

    So I'm really considering getting the APR chip during the sale but I've also read about the Speed Tuning Chip. Lots of old good and luke warm reviews so I wanted to ask if anyone lately has had it done. I figure what ever the minor complaints of 2005 may have been corrected lately. the APR is a...

    Im doing some preventative maintenance and wondered if a coolant flush is in order. I have an 01 and I bought the car used at 141kms a couple months ago. I'm now at 150kms and was just wondering how I would go about flushing and refilling the coolant properly. Thanks.:D

I bought the Phatnoise Media Manager upgrade to use with my phatbox but i had to reformat my PC recently so i wiped it out. I am now trying to get my activation...

    Mine went bad and I had to order one from the dealer. I used the part number in this forum and the parts guy said...old part number. He walked in the back and pulled me a brand new one. Didn't think anything of it, but when I installed it....It doesn't look right at all and doesn't sit flush...

    After the last run with Ferrari's and Lambo's on 9/1, I decided to subscribe to the TalkLambo.com forum and have a look around. It's a very interesting group. It doesn't generate the same volume of posts as a car like the Passat but it's interesting to note the kinds of people on this forum...
