  1. one touch window up/down mod

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Curious to know if anyone has done the one touch rear window up/down mod on the B5? My guess is only the veterans will know about this one. I found a couple of spare master window controllers laying around and thought I'd give it a try. To the best of my knowledge this was only done on the B5.5.

  3. US Brake lights mod on EURO spec

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I live in Europe, therefore I have an Euro-Spec 2004 Passat and I am feeling jealous of your brake lights. In case you don't know what I am talking about let me explain. The euro-spec Passat will only make one of the four bulbs on the tail-light brighter, and US Passat's will make all four of...

    I own a 99 B5 1.8t and it is going to be mine until the wheels fall off! (be careful what you wish for lol). I paid $200 for it and it didn't run at all. It is now my daily driver. I'd like to mod it more and make it more cool looking and less like a piece of scrap metal. Every time I search for...

It will have a slight ram-air effect because I'm adding a scoop collector to the...

    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...
