    I have a mechanic at the end of the street parting a 2001 B5 with a nice black leather interior. It has sludge issues and rather than replace the engine, they are parting it. I have the GLS with a tan cloth interior and poor door cards. What do you think is a fair price for 4 leather seats...

    Hi, I am looking for advice on a good indie shop for helping track and fix a coolant leak in my 2004 1.8T Passat. Would also gladly drive if a local-ish PW member would like to take a look for me as well. I live in Bothell, WA, but don't mind driving an hour for the right place. Thanks.

    So yesterday I finally got my control arms replaced. After changing a couple of them seperately I decided to replace them all. The low mph squeeks were annoying. I went the Febi kit from ecs for $499. I dropped my car off to my Indy mechanic and he also changed the oil. (I supplied big...

    Such as.. What should I expect to pay for a good quality used set with or without tires. Thinking 18" 5x112. Not sure about the offset yet as that stuff is new to me. Thanks
  9. B5 Garage
    My 04' GLX had some misfire issues a week ago and I am taking it in to the shop Tuesday to get it looked at. It only did it one time and it was after it had rained. What could I be looking at that needs to be replaced and how much? Also what is a fair price to pay for a transmission service...

    I'd like to pay someone for their time (at least $60 an hour). I know there are many experts on this forum, but who understandably don't have the time to be giving out free advice to every person asking for help. I'd be happy to pay for someone's advice, but as long as they are truly an...

    So I'm FINALLY getting the bodywork and lowers for the VR6 before the s/c goes in. I decided to go with a FK front end that has had good and bad reviews on whoretex, but everyone that has actually seen it on the car loves it. I waited almost six months for it to come over from across the pond...

    2009 Passat purchased new in DEC 2008. Well, I know that the odds are in the favor of the warranty companies, but I hate being uncovered. Less than 30 days out of warranty for time (mileage only 31K), the airbag light came on. Bad sensor on passenger side - parts and labor $377; warranty...
  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a buddy who owns a shop in NJ. A customer's '02 Passat was caught in the flooding last month, and they just discovered that, due to a lack of proper owners insurance, they get nothing for it. Water was evidently up to the knee pads on the dash. Car has not been driven/started. It...

    Im not sure if I want to sell it yet but I thought I would just ask the pros (you guys) what you think this car would be worth if I do decide to list it on craigslist. Some background info on the car. Its a 2004 B5.5 1.8T 5 speed. It has basically every optional extra. I was informed from the...
