  9. 98 Passat Owners Manual

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Back in my early days there were some people looking for a copy of the original '98 owners manual. I had scanned the whole manual the first time I saw a request for it.

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I'm shopping for new summer shoes (235/45/R17 XL) for my 2008 Passat.

  16. Votex side skirt owners...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Have any of you secured the sideskirt caps ? Or given any thought to doing so? I would hate to loose one. I removed them for winter and haven't put them back on yet.
