  1. B5 Garage
    I have a feeling that I'm going to have to do some suspension work soon and I'm debating whether to do just what's needed or the entire CA set. Has anyone replaced just a few parts and then had another fail later? Also, how well do the ball joints hold up? I can get a bushing set a lot...

    Car: 1999 Passat 1.8T Recently I had the battery out of my car (used a battery charger attached to the cables while battery was out to keep the radio presets, etc ;)). Somehow, power to the radio must've been interrupted. I tried the radio last Thurs. eve and see "SAFE" displayed. Then on...

    Well doing my reading and research here. I decided to go with a 6k HID kit and I am happy I did. There is a light blue tint and it looks good. My headlights haven't gotten here yet so the dingy yellow headlights don't do it justice. I will take pics once the sun goes down. But I'm overall...

    Anybody knows what's the biggest wheel size I can go with if I want to lower my car later? I don't have a whole lot of money and I want to do alot of mods and I'm running a budget of about $400 a month for mods, so should I lower it first and then get rims and tires, or should I get the tires...

    We just got back from our annual vacation, dosen't it suck to think you work all year for two weeks worth of vacation. But anyway we loaded up the variant and headed on our trek to Bar Harbor Maine. We used some suggestions from b5 members on directions and should have listened to...

    Just took my '04 Wett 1.8t cross country from MD to CA. Road trip was uneventful, killed a lot of bugs and ran over a possum here and there. Gas/mileage effeciency wasn't quite as good but that's cuz my 4motion's packed with my computer equipments and knickknacks. Just did a rough estimate...

    Well I'm in a "rub it it" mood this glorious Memorial Day morning. ;) Those of you around long enough to remember when this was ClubB5 may recall a certain W8 6 speed owner changing his oil at 1300 miles, waaaaaaaay before the mystical 5000 mile break in oil recommendation. All the self...

    here's how she arrived 2 months ago: Now all cleaned up and enjoying the beach: and when i was about to leave, i found this photo-op: i know, she's not quite as interesting as some, but she's a great, useable, daily driver! :)

    my left head lamp burned out. Not such a big deal, as i'm gonna do the HID install (after people here convinced me I could do it, so I cancelled my dealer appt.) but I'm wondering if pulling the relay caused it. After pulling the relay, I turned the car on and checked the lights, they were...

    I went out and had a few sherberts last night in Newcastle. My girlfriend, gave me a lift and five pints later came to pick me up from the City Centre. The weather was pretty crappy with snow showers which had just covered some of the roads. We just crossed over the Tyne Bridge over a set of...

    An opinion question: I just got this 99 1.8 Tip wagon used from a dealer and bought an extended warranty for $1,700 bucks - which is a lot of cash I think, but maybe not, considering that I'm starting with 55k miles and unknown service record... What if I take the $1,700 dollars and do a...

    Our initial B5 purchase was a hasty one. $9600 for a slightly beaten up '98 1.8T with only 36K miles. About 8K miles later, and 10 months later, we've spent $4K on repairs :( Brakes, tires, power steering rack, control arms, tie rod, power steering flush, serpentine belt, and we just had some...

    .....and I still have misfires. The engine idles fine, but when rev'd it starts misfiring. Replacing the parts above, the fuel has been sitting for about 3 months. I never thought it'd take so long to diagnose and get all the parts in. I guess that's the problem with finding the lowest price...
