    Does anyone know the maximum weight the VW OEM Roof Rack can support on the Passat B5 1.8T sedan? I am planning to move soon, and trying to figure out the max weight I can safely transport cross country (weight including the racks, filled cargo box, and one bicycle on the side). I read the...

    I have a 2016 Passat 3.6 SEL with the discovery pro nav. I also have a 2014 Eos with a RNS510. The Eos displays speed limits on roads that are blank on the Passat. The Passat does display speed limits, but not on all the roads that the Eos does. I know they use the nav data to get the info, so...

    Hello all. Is there a time limit before noobs can post in forums other than this one? I saw the sticky saying you had to post twice, and this is my fourth, but I still can't post in the other forums. Do I just need to wait?

    I'm just wondering how many are using a manual boost controller in the same loop as the N75 to limit boost spikes? Has it been effective? I'm APR 91 chipped and see spikes up to 18 psi...I don't know if I'm comfortable with it spiking that high. I've also read that that's outside the turbo's...

    I know that most stock Passats come with 210km/h rev limiter/governor. I was wondering what is the best, fastest, and cheast way to remove it?

    So my Alientech has not been responding to my requests lately. I VAG-COMed the CCM and got the following... I'm guessing that my driver's door latch unit is failing again. I have a spare, guess I have to try to fix it. Yay. Comments? Periodically, I will find my glove box light on. If I whack...

    It's been slightly over 7 months and about 3500 miles since the last oil change. There are some things I'm worried about though. The Jeep dealership where I bought the car from did the oil change on it, and I don't think they used synthetic, and they did overfill it too, but I guess since it's...
