  2. Where do you guys order parts? (Specific to CV / front axle assembly at the moment)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Greetings everyone! Wondering where you all order parts when you need them? I used to go thru FCP Euro, but *man* are they getting expensive. Example, I need two front axle assemblies, and FCP wants $344/each! Front Left Front Right Sometimes I can find pretty decent parts on Amazon as...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Got my wheels back from the powdercoater, a gunmetal color, and thought it would look better with black bolts. ECS had the tapered ones I needed, but they were 30mm vs 28 mm that came with the wheels when I bought them several years back. I measured several bolts with a caliper. Hey, what harm...

    Got this in my email today. Thought it was pretty funny.
  10. Now we can't even have a moment of silence?

    The Black Hole Seems this atheist is suing, saying that even a moment of silence is unconstitutional. Come on now. At our school, at the end of the US pledge and the Texas pledge, we have a moment of silence. We don't tell the kids what they...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
