    I just wanted to share my experience with rectifying my noisy 2.0T FSI (Diesel sound) I bought my 2006 2.0T FSI used from a VW dealer as a certified pre owned car a few years ago here in Canada (90,000km/56,000 miles at the time). I had read various reviews and reports all indicating the 2.0T...

    I took this from AZ, I absolutely had to share. Thanks [email protected] This is a fascinating look into new technology which may change how engines are built in the future - Free Valve technology which does not require a camshaft to run.

    Hello everyone. My B6 came with 16" steel wheels and I repurposed them to be winter wheels; they now have dedicated snow tires on them. When these wheels are on the car, the ride is smooth. For the summer, I bought these rims Touren TR9 3190 Matte Black Wheel (17x7"/10x112mm) and had a set of...

    When I changed the back ones, I had to borrow the special retractor tool from auto shop. I want to think that the front does NOT require it, but want to be sure before I dig in.

    When I bought Passat, previous owner mentioned that for V6 engine I can use 87 octane rating fuel and premium with 91 octane in required only for turbo engine. Is he correct? Also, I was told that by using higher (91) octane fuel I can get better mileage. How much difference you can expect among...

    I religiously use Mobil 1 in all of my cars. I'd like to Auto-RX my Passat's engine, but I really don't like the idea of putting non-synthetic oil in it. Is there a reasonable explanation for why I would have to use cheap oil?

    This is a pretty straightforward suspension install question, hopefully someone can help out for the common good ;) In a DIY suspension job, exactly which bolt or bolts must be re-torqued with the suspension fully compressed? Second, it is best to accomplish this with the wheel off, using the...

    :mad: judging from the height of the damage, it must've been a truck or an SUV. Will this require a new bumper? It looked small from the pics, but looking it's horrible looking, if you know what I mean. MAD. MAD. MAD. Can anyone share your stories about parking lot hit and run?

    I am going to be swapping Throttle Bodies in a while and I know the Vag is required for the DBW cars, but I am not sure for the non-DBW cars. Will the key in the ignition, driver side door and hood open work, or will I need to do a Vag TBA? TIA!

    I've been having an issue lately with my front rotors warping and I believe it's directly due to over-torqueing the front wheel lugs. First off, I'm running a set of Audi A6 2.7T wheels (the ones with 5 fat spokes). Recently, I torqued all wheels to 75 ft-lbs and noticed a severe vibration...
