  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I do some minor wrench spinning on my 04 B5.5 1.8T, but when things go wrong, or I just can't figure out what is going on, I turn to Matt and the techs at VW Plus Car Care in Huntington Beach, CA. Matt and the techs at VW Plus Car Care are the real deal. Period. You don’t find competent service...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, I decided to make a thread about the visual and actually any mods (maintanence, etc) for my car. It will make it easier for people when they search. I have been enjoying my 2003 Passat Wagon V6 for a while now but the suspension has really been annoying me as it's actually quite...

    This is a brand new coolant hose. Has anyone seen this orange stuff before? What is it?
  4. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So im about done my pcv/timing belt and noticed that the mixed coolant that I got from German auto parts is more of a dark pink, and the coolant that drained out of the radiator is more orange, similar to dexcool. What am I to do? I just finished pouring in the new coolant when I realized this...

    I had Koni STR.T blow out on me in less than 6 months. Additionally, the paint flakes off super fast. Not good quality from a 'quality' after market provider.

    Just recently installed the R8 Diesel TDI inspired grill and satin black emblems all around. Totally changed the demeanor of the car. :cool:

    So I thought I was thorough checking this rig out, paid for a mechanic to give it a once over and I looked it over good too but I missed that the rear blinkers are different. One is orange and the other is red. Tail lights are fine. I want them to match and the dealer says they will take care...

    It's official! Today while changing spark plugs and T'stat for some reason I managed to break the oil stick orange housing. :banghead: I know some other people had also broke it. But how do you actually change it? I tried hard to get it lose from its base but no success. Any ideas or...

    I want to replace my cracked driver-side corner light (next to the head light) cover. I was given a part number 3B0953041D, but my search is yielding only the clear or clear/orange part. I need the original all-orange part. Ideally I just need to replace the cover, but I probably have to...

    my 1.8t wagon and the rest of my families B5's have the stock coolant in it, even my dads TDI golf has the original coolant and is orange like kool aid. is it not supposed to be pink/dark red ( thats what the dealer told me )
  12. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    How bad is it if my coolant is orange ? i guess the P/O put orange coloured coolent in the car, i hope nothing is ruined, it runs fine but im guessing it clogged the heater core so no heat blows through and probably has to do with the thermostat also because the temperature gauge does not move...

    Ive seen these on MKV GTIs and they look phenomenal. Does anyone know if someone makes orange lenses for the mirrors for a b5.5. But then again arent they the same mirrors used on MKVs?

    So mine broke into a 100 pieces and I ordered an "OEM" off of ebay but it doesnt stay. Everytime you pull th dip stick it comes off. Am I doing something wrong?
  15. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    is there anything else to that euro look? where can i get those goodies? :P
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    What is the discount value of a car which is otherwise in perfect order, over the same car which has a "clean" title? Why does this alleged car have this title? It's an older car which had a light front end accident and it was totaled by the insurance company, sold @ auction then purchased by...
