    My old trusty Passat got rear ended last week, and the insurance today declared it as totaled. My neck & lower back are very stiff & sore at the moment, but Dr. said nothing is broken. My Passat has been a great grocery getter and a fantastic around town beater. I'm going to miss my it very...

    For a '99, 1.8 - The front most fastening point is a one-use nylon nut - 10mm - that threads onto a stud. The stud is pressed through a carrier that extends vertically up to the hood latch mechanism, bolted with a torx nut to the latch housing. Strangest thing. The rear of the pan is attached...

    Too long to paste the whole thing, so here's Jalopnik's summary. Full link to the official press release at the bottom: I'll try and keep this short: 3.0-liter sequential turbo I-6 good for 286 HP, 427 lb-ft of twist and a combined cycle of 35 mpg. I really can't think of much else to say. OK...

    Long time member, but have only posted a couple of times before now. Have been an Audi owner for quite a while and was a longtime VW owner before, so I'm very familiar with these cars and the brand. Just cut a deal today for a '98 Variant, Elegant Green. 94k miles, 5 speed. The good: original...

    So I had my 99 Passat looked by VW Specialties due to misfire cylinder #3. Apparently the Bosch spark plug's tip along with ceramic portion has scattered through out my cylinders. Now my engine has scoring all over the cylinder wall and the tip has banged out the Cylinder 3 head quite good...

    I installed my PES supercharger this weekend. It was quite a bear of a job, but so far (knock on wood, fingers crossed) everything seems to be running fine. Haven't opened it up yet. I'm going to give it a while for the ECU to adapt and make sure no fittings loosen up. Also replaced my...
