    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    These have seldom popped up for years. I've been on here since 2009. It took me this long to finally snag an old Club B5 relic; from an older member just recently. Surely, some members will remember these. :thumbup: For those that don't; two members used to make these bars that bolted to the...

    If you're reading this, you probably live in New England, and you almost certainly have to drive in the snow. Maybe you drive a car with all-wheel-drive (such as an Audi with Quattro).
