    I have an '03 Passat W8 that I've had for 7 years. It has had the usual issues, but this time I need what seems to be a Cylinder #3 fuel injector. The VW dealer mechanic doesn't know if the intake manifold needs to be removed to replace #3. Do you know? Also, while I'm at it, I would...

    My name is Dustin. I'm from near Erie, PA. I've been a member since 2011 and been an enthusiast for more than 15 years. My first VW was a 2002 Passat W8 sedan that I bought in February 2009 with 60K miles. I had that car until May 2013 when I sold it with 168K miles. I regretted not keeping...

    I have a 2003 passat W8 4motion. I had a spill in the trunk that shorted the fuel control module out. I've located one a few hours away in a VW/Audi wrecking yard. The question I have is whether or not the module is plug and play; if I plug it in, will it need programming, flashed, etc? Thanks...

    Just go my 2003 Passat W8. Sadly, there is NO manual. What are the features of the Trip Computer and how can you configure it ? As noticed by some other Threads here, I have the same problem with the fading Display. Seems there is only one solution : buy a new cluster. Or does somebody has...

    By Nick Dasko I have a confession, I have a serious crush on the W8 Passat. I don't have a need to own one but I would like to spend a week with one and get it out of my system. It is in my top three favourite VWs list from the crazy early 2000s when they sold the W12 Phaeton, the V10 diesel...

    Hi everyone! I just pulled into work a few minutes ago and while I just got to my parking spot, I had some issues. As soon at I parked, the car started to smell and smoke a little. I shut off the engine for a few minutes, and let the engine stop smoking. My engine temp gauge was in the middle...

    Hi everyone! Bare with me, I figured one giant post is better than a billion little ones: I own a 2002 W8 with 116000 on the dial. I got this car to replace me old 1995 Audi A6. The W8 does a lot of things as well, if not better than the old Audi :thumbup: , but there are a couple things that...

    I've been speaking with Ben at STS Turbo about developing a bolt-on twin turbo kit for the W8. He says if there's enough people that want in to make their investment worth-while they could do it. :lol: I'm putting together a list of people interested on w8forum.dk. Here's the direct link: STS...

    The physics of how this smell works is very peculiar. The car itself does not smell bad on the inside if it just sits parked with the windows down or up. Unlike most smells, this smell is only present when the car is in motion, and more specifically, when the windows are rolled down. My theory...

    I have been wondering this for a while, but any other W8 owners in the greater Saint Louis area, or am I the only one? IF not, let me know if there are any other drivers!

    Greetings to All, I've just bought a 2004 Passat Wagon 4-Motion with the W8 engine and automatic. This vehicle has the Sport wheels and suspension.

    If you have done this before, please point me to the resources you have used and friends you may have made along the way. Search reveals a number of fractured and/or patched together B5/5.5 and MarkIV-related W8 FIS Cluster swap threads, so since I am going to undertake this myself on my B5.5...
