    Hey I recently got a Passat b5.5 gls 2004 Andy I was just wondering what kinds of interior modifications y’all have done to kinda update the look, just curious.

    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...

    Hi There People I would like to change my headlights and if possible my rear lights on my vehicle I would like to go to LED if possible, the car is a 1997 ( yes I know but the car is sound ) and everybody who I meet says that it does not look its age. The only problem that I can see is that...

    I bought my 2010 Passat 2.0T back in May with 34K on the odometer. Since then, I have added APR Carbonio Intake, Unitronic Stage 1+ tune and an H&R 24mm adjustable rear sway bar. The tune and sway bar really made a huge difference in the car and how it goes and sticks in the curves. Yesterday...

    Okay, so I know this board is dedicated to members' Passats, so moderators, if you want to relocate this thread please do so. I just thought it would fit because I think we all need a place to discuss the worst modifications you've seen done to VW Passats. You've seen them, and wondered what the...

    I'm new to PassatWorld. I have had this car for about a year now and I want to start learning how to work on cars. I'm interested in what kind of mods other people are doing to their Passats. Any suggestions?

  8. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just purchased a '99 Passat and wanna go the Euro route. I have ordered many parts already and am intrested in a 180deg. wiper. I have read on various threads on many sites that it is possible to rrework a stock motor to get the 180deg. sweep. I can not find any information on how to do...

    Is it possible to change the Torsen Type 2 differential on a 4Motion B5 to Torsen Type 3 differential with its planetary gears so more of the power could be sent to the rear axle under normal situations?

    My secondary air pump died last fall and my wife did not fall for the CEL being there to let her know the engine was running so I decided to fix it on the cheap and hopefully for the better. I figured some of you might find this helpful. My goal was to replace the pump, stop the exhaust flow...

    Hi all, I have a 2000 Passat 1.8 petrol estate and I'm considering doing a few subtle modifications to increase performance. I'm not looking for anything crazy, just a little extra BHP. I'm completely new to this sort of thing and I as such don't really know what I'm talking about, but I'm...

    In 98', I started modifications on the Passat almost immediately, starting with suspension. By the time I was done, I had spent some $14,000. Some of you have those mods. today! Now I had promised not to mod. the A5. Silly me... but there are just a few things I REALLY don't like about the A5...

    Hey guys! I'm pretty new to the forums, so I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong section. I just recently purchased a 99 Passat FWD V6 and was wondering if there are any easy to do mods that noticeably boost performance. Thanks

    Part of my "which chip to get" research... how to get the maximum performance out of the chip? I was speaking with my local GIAC dealer, and I brought this question up. While I'd gain performance with the stock exhaust, freeing up some flow would help. However, while they sell aftermarket...
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Being that there is a lot of debate about intakes on these vehicles. Let me start by asking what modifications are worth while BESIDES a CHIP. I have done quite a bit of searching, but just don't know where to begin. I mean with a turbo, are you limited to what you can do with the OEM turbo? I...

    I took my 2002 to the dealer yesterday to have them perform the service action P9 service to improve the drainage and seal for the polen filter. I haven't seen anyone post what they do for this service so I thought I would show everyone. The letter said they would inspect, clean, and modify...

    Well, after a haitus of more than 2 years, I'm BACK! While many newbies may not remember me, many of the original ClubB5 members may still remember my regular postings. I must say that I'm glad to be back, certainly glad to see that membership has risen by leaps and bounds. Anyway for those...
