  3. Running regular vs premium any real world difference ? negative impact ?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Its a 2000 1.8t Recently I had to put in regular for a short while due to fuel prices ( thank god it went down now ) and I noticed it was sort of sluggish off the line. The throttle response was laggy or slow as in I would touch the gas and the car would feel strained. Which really bothered me...

    New Member Introductions
    Looking at buying a 1 owner 2004 Passat. 90,000 miles well maintained. Has been in storage since last November. They went to start it and the AAA service man said it gave off 6 or 7 codes. I was speaking to a former VW mechanic and he told me no issue they will do that with being jumped. Any way...

    Parts For Sale
    The original, unmolested (and never installed) Shine Racing SRS rear torsion bar stiffener I modeled the now fabled run of SnunkBars after. Personally — and I am naturally biased — the SnunkBar is a better get, but they are all gone. So I offer this gen-u-wine SRS rear sway with mounting...

  8. Parasitic Drain and Relay for Remote Unlocking Motor Rear Lid

    B5 Garage
    My original symptom was that my car would be dead in the morning. I took it to Autozone, and they told me that the battery / alternator appeared fine, but the alternator was roughly half a volt low. Nothing too crazy. I take it to the stealership [I'm in the Navy, and short on time or space to...
  9. Finally had to spend real money today

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    My family has some ideas about traveling this summer, so when our local indy shop said they had time to get our wagon in for a timing belt job this week, we took advantage. Even though the job was done a little early at 90k miles, the belt was almost 7 years old, plus the cooling system had to...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey guys, wanted to know if there are any 5.5 owners out there that can chime in on the actual mpg numbers for their stage 3.
