I have a set of 4 OEM B5.5 VW Passat wheels (Michigans). 15 inch. $35 per wheel. They are not pretty but they are all straight. Asking scrap prices, so price is firm or else I will take them to the recycler instead. Just seems a waste to let them get scrapped. Would make a good set of...

Looking to replace my B5 and found an 07 B6 waggie with the 2.0T manual with 62000km on it at a dealership with the extended warranty for CAD$20,500.
Can you B6 brothers help a B5er out and let me know any downfalls or issues to look for? Plusses?
Wasn't quite sure where to post this, but I just found Shell and Kroger have some arrangement to receive a discount of 10 cents per gallon off Shell gas at participating locations. See http://www.kroger.com/in_store/fuel/Pages/default.aspx for more info.
Hope this helps. It'll ask for Kroger...

Like the title says Im getting around 60 miles per a quarter tank, which seems quite low to me. car is a 98 1.8t AEB and is GIAC chipped. i usually get around 300-340 miles a tank which isnt that great since i dont jump the gun and accelerate outrageously fast. i replaced the spark plugs about...
So I have the rear gate apart and lubed the "ball bearing" as suggested in the write-up by robc10x. I then plugged it in to see if the handle now works. HOwever, it doesnt. So, I unlocked the gate and started to open with the key when the electric switch mechanism activated. I tried it several...
This past Saturday I departed on a 1700 mile trip from Denver, CO to Providence, RI. I figured it would be the best opportunity to test the max MPG for my car (B5 1.8t 5spd). My average speed for the first tank was a timid 60 MPH. With a average of 38 MPG. The total miles on the first tank were...

I'm not talking about instantanous gas milage, trip gas milage, or other things calculated by the computer. I'm talking about the old fashoned way, miles driven on the tank divided by gallons pumped at the next fillup.

So I pull into the drive thru for coffee this morning behind two other b5.5 wagons. Three passats in a row, all 4mo wagons, two silverstone grey....weird. I'm in a town of ~70,000 (don't move here!) and it seems I see passats everywhere or I'm seeing the same cars again and again. Granted...
