    Wax On, Wax Off
    Remember the colored wax that used to be available? Many included what was called a "Chip-stick." I once had a Catalina Blue MK III Golf and the blue version of that stuff worked great. Well, at least until I washed the car, but you can't get chip-sticks anymore. Fast-forward 2 decades later...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm finally getting tint on my 2001.5 Passat Sedan and was wondering if I needed to install a moleskin felt window tint protector for my seals. I heard that some cars don't have a felt surface on the interior window seal and that ends up trapping dirt and other contaminants which end up...
  12. Covered in scratches

    Wax On, Wax Off
    When I bought my car it was literally covered in scratches, the seller told me it was from his young child that decided to decorate his dad's car with sidewalk chalk. Now I get to clean up the mess. I have a 3m rubbing compound that has worked pretty well, but there are still quite a few...

  17. Window scratches

    B5 Garage
    More of a general car question, rather than passat-specific. Went to the beach few weeks back and got sand on my windshield which was then wiped by paper. Suffice to say, I have lots of hairline scratches on my windshield. Anyone know if there is a way to get these out?
