    Hey guys, Picking up a new to me 02 Passat about 45 miles away tomorrow. When I test drove it for 20 minutes, upon returning to the dealership there was a little smoking under the hood, oil smell through the vents. I didn't see any insane leaks and the dipstick didn't show any drastic...

    So its come the time that I believe I should take the preventative maintenance route and replace my clutch. Its an 03' AWM 1.8T with 166k miles on it. I've been researching a little and I don't know which kit I should pick up. I'm mainly wanting to change the clutch because I want to chip it in...

    I just picked up a 99' Passat 1.8T 5 Speed manual the other day. When I run the engine I faintly smell oil sometimes, this might just be my imagination, and I have not ran it long enough to see if it is burning off.. To my good luck though the oil in it right now is pretty old and does not...

    It has a known bad cam tensioner, but the previous owner says a dealer told him it blew apart, contaminating the engine. The car runs fine, but is very loud and says it's low or out of oil. I'm planning to pull the head apart and see what I'm working with, but I thought I'd check with you guys...

    I found a huge yard full of every kind of passat in every color you could imagine and they're all in good condition, aside from being totaled, mechanically or otherwise. It's located in Indiana. If there was something that someone needed, it's not far from me and I could head out there and get...

    Well with my next pay check im hoping to order quite a few parts to get my 99'wagon on the road again. I just wanted to get an estimate on difficulty and time it would take for each, also wouldn't mind a quick run through on how to do it. Euroswitch with the position for the rear fogs Rear...

    over the weekend, I was working on the 98 A4 that's been taking up space in my driveway for a bit. One of the last things I had to do before putting it back together was remove the pinchbolt on the passenger side. to facillitate this, I tried heat and beat, hammer/vibrations from an air chisel...

    Last couple days I've pondered about the Votex kit for pretty good insane prices. I know for a fact I'm going to get the Front Valance. The only Real Problem is do I want the Side Skirts, rear diffuser, and rear lower valance. I've seen a couple pictures of the Real Diffuser/valance but they are...
