    New member, just purchased a 2003 Passat GLS, 65000 miles, very nice condition. I've had a lot of different types/brands of cars and I really like working on the VW's when things are needed. Very well built cars.

    Recently I have noticed a raspy sound from under the front of car. Its only audible when I have a windy down or in the garage. Sounds like a air pump.

    I've been poking around and trying to get a feel for what problems may arise once I own a B5 Passat. I've noticed that ball joints are a popular replacement item, and that the sludge issue keeps popping up. What problems often occur with these, and is there usually a time span or mileage when...

    I'm curious as to why more Passat'ers don't run Neuspeed chips. I read all about GIAC, APR, Wett, now Revo is coming along, but rarely do I find anything about Neuspeed. The search function brings up tons of stuff on Neuspeed springs, but about 3 threads with Neuspeed chips in it. Is there...
