    Hello all. I am getting a set of c4 saw blades super cheap. Does anyone have these on their cars? Is so do I need adapters or rings ? Some insight would help. Thanks.
  2. Red LCD display message. Never saw this one

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    hi guys, I think I got my strange computer stuff ironed out by replacing the alternator on my 2001.5 v6 with automatic. I have a message in the red LCD display that shows XX min then 1 to the right in a red box. The XX seems to be a minute timer. I am the original owner and she has 239 K on...

    Jordan Addison, Bullied College Student, Given $10,000 In Free Car Work By Roanoke Businesses (VIDEO) Not a fan of what they did to the car, but it is a Passat, and it's good to know there are people out there that do the right thing.

  6. Saw The New CC In Person

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    Holy Mother! That thing looks phenomenal now, I didn't like the look of the car in pictures, but in person everything flows perfectly. The tail lights on the previous generation were a major fail IMO, this update makes the old model look so outdated now. The only thing I didn't care for was...
  7. Finally saw a B7 at the stealership

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I had to get a couple of things at the stealership at lunch today and popped into the showroom to view the B7. Didn't have time to drive one, but sat in a well appointed gasser on the showroom floor. It's big... noticibly wider than the B6. Inside, the interior looks pretty good, actually...
  8. I think I saw a somewhat "rare" Passat Today...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It was a Dark Red 2002 Wagon with the V6 and AWD. What i think makes it Rare is that it did not have a sunroof and it had steel wheels (With the VW hubcaps). Most other V6 AWD Wagons i have seen have Alloys with a Sunroof. (I know, CSB)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just thought I'd pass the word along... I know it made me feel good Do we have a milage record thread? I don't have pics to prove it but it was an 01 v6. I'd be curious to see how many have topped 350k
  14. I saw the B5 Holy Grail.....

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was dropping off some parts for my MKIV Jetta at my mechanic's shop. I pulled in right next to it but only noticed the faded peeled paint on the hood. I went inside and took care of business. In passing, as I walked out, I made a comment to CJ (my mechanic) about how I used to own one just...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    If you've been keeping up with my threads, I was concerned with my oil pressure so I got around to installing a new pump. After tackling many obstacles (I'm sure you guys know what it's like to work on a used car :wrench:) I finally pulled the oil pump. I expected to see sludge and coke all...

    I was waiting for something, and decided to stop at the only dealer close by, which conincidentally was a Dodge/Chrysler dealer (pretty shocking as no one where I live actually drives a Dodge) This is the 570X with 700hp.... Check out window sticker :bugeye: These 2 570's were parked next...
