    Events & Gatherings
    I want to thank PZ for inviting me over to his house last week. :thumbup: I was down in 'his neck of the woods' during my road trip to Florida and Texas the 3rd & 4th week of October. Don't really know what say here, I could ramble on and on. I guess for those who get the chance to meet him, do...

    Hi- Apparently I registered back in 2012 but never posted (just read and researched for my 05 Passat 2.0 tdi in Germany) and now that I am considering another Passat I went to post a question I was redirected here. Guess I need to make my account official. Thanks again, Troy

  6. Trusted shop or person in NYC

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ok, my car got the p1100 issues occasionally, and rattling noise, which I suspect it was the time to change my cam shaft chain tensioner. And I think I might not be able to do it all by myself, considering this has to open up the valve cover. So I went to a shop I trusted as always. They did...

  10. Just another person battling p2181.

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2003 1.8 AWM. CEL came on and was reading code p2181. Temp gauge stays solid at 190 in decent weather, but on cool nights the needle will fluctuate between 190 and one full notch below 190. I did tons of searching on here as to what to consider first and go from there. I purchased...

    B5 Garage
    Greetings! Yes, here's yet another thread about brake replacement. Yes, I did a search and looked in the Information Base, but found all that a little unsatisfiying. Here's why: There seem to be many useful posts regarding the basics of this job. But, I inevitability find many replies to the...
  12. Saw The New CC In Person

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    Holy Mother! That thing looks phenomenal now, I didn't like the look of the car in pictures, but in person everything flows perfectly. The tail lights on the previous generation were a major fail IMO, this update makes the old model look so outdated now. The only thing I didn't care for was...
  13. ermmmm... so what do I do about the post to welcome a new person?

    New Member Introductions
    So the deal is I post once on here and then again to welcome a new person to the forums? Then I can post... wow... that's a step from the Honda/Miata/Mustang/Cherokee forums... I may have owned a few cars, of different makes...
  14. Am I the only crazy person?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Tried searching and found no conclusive evidence. So, here it goes: I just did an oil change on my V6 2002 GLX. Wanted to test the "big kahuna" oil filter (Mann W 950/4) aka Mannolator. It fits very tightly but apparently doesn't interfere with anything and doesn't rub against any metal...
  15. If you had to be any current person in congress, who would you be?

    The Black Hole
    This guy is so close to me in his style and utter lack of tact that it's frightening, bad hair and all. He's a kook, but he's my kook.. May he raise plenty more hell before he ultimately flames out. Which CURRENT congressman or senator are you?

    The Black Hole

  17. I saw a Passat CC in person today.

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I guess one of the new VW HQ employees lives in Ashburn, because I passed a brand-new champagne Passat CC driving carefully down the road in the left lane. (this is Virginia, after all, drive-right/pass-left is a tricky concept here.) I was going to ask the guy how it was to drive, but he turned...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi, I am not going to ask how to and all of that. In the B5 'information' section, all the timing belt is for the older 1999 passat AEM engines. I am wondering if anyone with 1.8T AWM engine have doing this task or is about to. If you are, can you do a write up with lots of photos. I...
  20. New M3 Looks Better In Person Than In Pics

    Anything Auto
    just a little poll as to who has seen the m3 in person. at least the coupe, anyway. i have seen a couple driving in the opposite direction from me on the highway, and the car looks menacing in person. i definately think it looks better in real than in pics and on videos. anyone else seen one?
