    Hi, I have a question regarding loading a large number of files onto my RNS510 audio system. I have about 3,500 files that I want to load and I don't want to place them into any folders or at the least only one. I have loaded them onto an SD card and whilst I can load a small amount of files...

    Hi, I have a set of Audi wheels which I think came off an A4 Cabrio. You'd think they would rub on the outsides but they don't clear the upper control arms and one rear rubs the fender well against the inner sidewall a little. PN on the wheels is 8H0 601 025 A, offset, etc is ET45 7.5X17. Tires...

    Hi, First "real" post on PassatWorld so I apologize if this is in the incorrect section. I have a 2013 NA Passsat SEL TDI, but this shouldn't apply specifically to the TDI line so I'll post it here. Does anyone else have an issue with the stock wiper blades pulling water back into the middle...

    Alright, I need some help. I picked up a real nice wooden shift knob for my 2004 b5.5 passat. The knob is screw on but the stock setup uses a clip, or a metal ring. I took the clip component out of my stock one, and pretty much destroyed the stock knob. Any ideas on where to go next?

    So my wife just informed me that cold water occasionally drips on her feet when I have the AC on. I'm thinking a clogged drain somewhere? Anyone else observed this?

    Has anyone tried to bolt on the turbo from the 1.8t onto the 2.8 v6? I'm looking to add hp without spending a lot and was wondering if anyone has tried this? I know the intake and exhaust manifolds are different for obvious reasons but besides that... thanks for any help John

    As above, post-2001 Audi A6's in Europe (and probably US) had aluminium hubs/uprights on the front, which are apparently 4kg lighter per corner (which is not bad to help unsprung weight). Apparently the caliper carrier bolt detail is the same and the driveshaft spline detail. Just a different...

    Wow I haven't been here in a while, the last time I came on here was to check out anything new about the passat! or VW in general... Then I logged off for a few months. I really miss being on here to chat with people about the car. I actually never got to mod my passat after some of the...

    My stock turbo has died after 300k. Will the larger turbo from a 2002 B5.5 be a direct swap? Thanks

    Hi Guys, This is my first post on the Passat Forum, had a Mk4 Golf Estate before. I got a 2007 Sport 2.0TDi DSG Estate (wagon). Slowly and surely modding it to my taste. So far colour coded the black lower mouldings into body colour, which is black in anycase :lol: but makes the polishing...

    So when i was claying/waxing the car over the weekend, I noticed some paint and minor rust issues on my hatch. One issue I knew about was the rivet screws holding the plate lights in place are loose, which I can fix... but there's two or three places where I have rust under the paint and one...

    The results don't disappoint, with the force-fed motor putting out 197 horsepower at the rear wheel and a peak of 227 lb-ft of torque at just 2500 rpm. Those figures compare very favorably with Hyundai's factory ratings of 210 ponies and 223 lb-ft, meaning that this little Korean's power is...

    I still have no clue if they do. I've been searching for suspension for the CC and can't find anything for it out yet. Was wondering if the B6 suspension can be put onto a CC with no issues?

    I did post this up a while back with no response...:confused: Do i need to consider anything else when fitting coilovers to my V6 Syncro... Ive heard things about the rear end needing 'something'. Can someone please finally clear this up for me so i can get on with modification! :bowdown...

    Does anyone know if Audi A6 wheels bolt pattern will go onto a Passat?

    Well, as some of you know, folks over the pond can get parktronic from the factory, but parktonic is not an option on US-spec MKV GTI's. I know that VW has a retrofit kit, but I wasn't gonna shell out $300+, so i went with a cheaper generic version. I know some people like it, others hate it...
