    I have a VW Passat 2005 tdi. I want to put Audi A8 2006 rims and tires on my car. The dimensions are 255/40/r19. They don’t fit properly because the tire is too thick. Would it make a difference if I go with 255/30/r19 or will it be the same problem?? Can anyone help??

    Hey guys, just purchased a 2007 Passat 2.0T Wagon. There's no aux in the centre console, glovebox, or the radio. Does anyone know how to wire an aux cord into the radio, or would I have to replace the entire stereo? Thanks!

    I’m selling a Passat engine and a guy came to buy it for his Jetta, he said it won’t work because my engine has a timing belt and his is timing chain. If he was replacing the entire engine that wouldn’t matter, would it?
