I've had my passat a little over a year now. 2004 1.8t gls manual. I purchased it with 115,000 miles. As to my knowledge everything original but coilpacks. A lot of work has been done and I haven't even scratched the surface yet :banghead:
The very first thing was to drive home from the lot and...

My 2002 passat 4motion comes with the 16" factory wheel.
I was hoping to explore cool premium wheels for her.
question i have is, specifically what sizes, widths, bore diameter and specs fit on the passat?
thanks for all your responses in advance.
2000 passat gls wagon. 2.8 V6 ATQ. cold weather option, manual trans, not AWD. all these wires are on the passengers side, or the left side looking INTO the engine bay.
these are near the firewall kind of by the group of plugs. it is one grey wire and one white wire in a rubber sleeve. looks...
I am resisting from installing anything else but a Carplay system on my 2014 B7 but I was so disappointed to see that VW is not even listed as a contender to receive this unit. C'mon!!! Chevrolet and Ford? KIA?? Seriously?
Already in line for 2015 Volvo's and Mercedes, Honda and Ferrari among...

Like I said I am desperately looking for some kind of lip kit. I am highly interested in skirts and thinking about front and rear lips. Let me know what you have please and pm me. I am located in Rochester, NY. I will pay CASH.
Okay I looked around and I thought about the 008 Premium Diverter Valve from ecstuning.com but is that really all that great? Will this increase my boost. I also wanted the bov sound will this give me what I want or is there a better option. I also don't wanna get aan emmisions code.
I've searched and read alot of old threads related to suspension mods and upgrades. I'm not new to suspension or VW but this is my first B5 toy/daily driver. My last daily was a 4th gen Maxima and I went with a spring/strut setup and regreted it. The car looked good and was fine on smooth roads...

So lets say money isn't a huge factor and you have a FWD V6 Passat that you are working on.
You already know about the G2 supercharger but you're wondering what else you can do for performance.
It comes stock with cold air intake, right?
What else is out there?
Oh and before you shut me down...
i suspect a vacuum leak somewhere in the system, tho i dont have a gauge, i did find these badly worn braided hoses... what are they and would they have anything to do with my acceleration issues?
This is just somthing that is extremely loose going through the firewall... should i have to...
lets start by saying i know this is hugely debated on passatworld whether a cold air intake is useful but i just want to see the heat shields people have made. i am going to have a cone filter im working on a set up for my car that is still a work in progress. i just want to see some pictures...
