    Hello fellow Passat drivers and enthusiasts, I am an owner of a 2004 Volkswagen Passat. It’s the 4-Motion model with the 1.8t engine. For those of you that know this car, it’s great to drive and having it in a manual transmission makes it even better. So, with that being said, I’m looking to...
