Today I bought my first Passat! I got a fwd b7 1.8tsi and I'm so excited to pick it up in a couple days!
I hope to make some new friends here and make some sweet memories with my new(to me) car!
I’m slowly getting my B5.5 1.8T back to life. I replaced the camshaft seals a few weeks ago and I’m currently working on replacing the crankshaft seal. The car hasn’t been turned on yet.
