    having just read that the maximum duty cycle of the injectors in an AEB setup is too small for real turbo performance makes me want to ask a few questions: has anyone swapped in a transversely mounted 1.8t from one of the newer passats/audis? is it even possible? i gather the b5.5 chassis is...

    I recently bought a 2001.5 GLX sedan with 188k miles. I have no idea what recall work has been done on it. Is the dealer legally obligated to complete all recalls indefinitely? Can I roll it in and have them check the recall/work history to make sure that everything is current? What about...

    Bought a new Passat a few weeks back, but the alignment was badly off. Took it to my selling dealer and they tried to align the car twice without success. Can I go to another dealer to redo the alignment or do I have to go back to the 1st dealer? I know when I owned domestic brands, you were...
