    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    First order- found a bumper insert (tow eye cover 3b0 853 678 b b41) for 2001 B5. Bottom line cost (w/shipping- expensive) was 1/3 the dealer who didn't have it in stock. Got in a day and it fits fine. Have to be careful, though- to add 2 oil filters created a second shipping charge of $13!!!
