    Am I the only one who finds it ironic that we're running a VW Passat forum which is sponsored by ads for other makes of cars?? (Hyundai, Chevrolet, Toyota, etc.)
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hello I have a 1.8t auto and recently while driving down the motorway say at 70mph constant, my car has this extra noise that sounds like its coming from the exhaust at the rear. Its a deep throaty sound which can be heard above the regular exhaust note and seems to be doing it quite...
  3. Wax On, Wax Off
    My a-hole friends decided to sticky note my entire car a couple of nights ago.. and I took all them off but they left a bit of residue from the glue behind on the paint and windows. Used goo gone on the windows and it took it all off, but im nervous about using it on my paint. There isn't much...

    After having my car on jack stands all last week, and having to pull an all nighter just to finish it...its finally done. Lowered on St coilovers..current ride height at 24 5/8. "Cx racing front control arm kit" was actually a very good buy so far, everything seems perfect upon install...

    I just received eibach pro-kit springs, #8580.140 for my 03 wagon. I noticed that the front springs are labeled Eibach Springs and the rears Eibach Federn. So it looks like the front springs are produced in/manufactured for the US market and the rears are coming from Germany or for the...

    This info is repost, but since I was just out experimenting with my car, I thought I'd post the results. 1999 with single DIN non-monsoon. Car came with no radio. PO removed it. I bought a used OEM radio and had to enter the code to unlock it from SAFE mode. I then bought another used OEM...
  7. The Showroom
    Last night I went to IKEA in Emeryville & on the way back I saw someone put a note on my windshield, turned out to be written by another member of this forum (JWJR404) and he owns a W8 too (a sedan). I feel good knowing another W8 owner that is also a passatworld member around here in Bay Area...

    Has anyone in this forum experienced "shaking" (throbbing, surging) when inching forward, easing to a stop, and even at idle? Your input is needed at this forum. Most dealerships, as well as VWoA, deny having been told of the problem; and dealers who've contacted VWoA receive no information on...

    Bogus lubrication additive + FTC investigation = must-have value-added product ?!?
  10. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just performed this today due to worn out, 2 year old factory blades. I went to Murray's (local auto parts store) and picked up the Anco N22R refills for $7 and cut them down to 21". I noticed a sign that they could special order the VW Aero refills for a mere $89...

    I have a monthly payment of $215 on my Passat. Based on the number of miles I drive, my average fuel economy and $3.00 a gallon for gas, I pay about $250 a month for gas. WTF is that all about?! Anyone else in this situation? (No fair bragging if you paid off your ride already.)
