    So, I got rear-ended today. Low speed, but the damage is damage. I need your sage advice on what to look out for! I'm taking the car to the shop tomorrow, and anticipate a "conversation" re: repairing a car this old but in this good a condition. (It looks showroom new.) 1999 1.8t GLS 40k...

    So, as the title says, I was rear-ended. For those of you that know the area, I was on Rt 32 heading out of NL and the ass-clown that hit me was driving a Dodge Ram. Thankfully it was only a little bumper tap at a stop light...but the guy drove off as I was pulling over!!! :crazy::thumbdown...

    I can't believe it. Almost ten years without an accident and then I get rear-ended at a stop light. I get out to survey the damage and ask if he's okay and then suggest that we pull off the road. I pull over first and the guy takes off so I follow him honking my horn. Not far down the road...

    I was sitting at a stoplight at exactly midnight when I got rear-ended in my b5 variant. I instantly hit my flashers, got out and asked the driver to pull into the gas station 500ft away to exchange insurance. I pulled ahead and she took off in the other direction! In my pursuit I flagged...

    Just a rant- I got bumped on the way to work. Got info. It didn't look too bad, just a cracked bumper (it was cold this morning) later I noticed the trunk was damaged also, the seams dont match up. I even got an estimate- $2200. Gotta replace bumper and trunk + labor and paint. Groan~ At...

    The other day i got rearended by a jeep. I got some damage to my rear bumper and thought that was it. I noticed my sub making thumping sounds when i turned on my car and off, and then while no music was playing. The sub thumps really loud and not even when there is a bass in any song. I have to...

    At least for 3 days! I have already had the B6 for one full day (Yesterday) and it kicks major butt!!! It is really fast and hadles well and the dash doesn't make any rattle sounds when you go over pot holes, I think VW improved a lot with this Passat!!! :thumbup: Here are a few pics to prove...

    Thought I'd place it here for more exposure. Was stopped at a right turn, creeped forward a little and then BAM. Guy behind me didn't realize I was still there and gunned it from the stop to get into traffic. Thought my entire rear end was screwed judging by the way my body lurched fowared and...

    First, my respect for the job that Kelly at Wetterauer did with my ECU. I sent it from my country to the US. I put my faith in her and she responded the way I expected. :) I just installed the ECU back last nigh, went out to my gf house and back. Today in the morning, going to my work, I was...

    Last night my 99 Passat GLS V6 was rear-ended while I was stopped at a red light. Fortunately, I was fine -- the car is not. The witness to the accident was a police officer who was stopped at the other side of the intersection. The other driver was cited and as far as I can tell 100%...
