I have only had the car for 7 months now and have not yet experienced these tires in the snow. My old...
  2. P7 Cinturato All Season Plus - my experience

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    So, I just ordered a set of 4 new Pirelli P7 Cinturato All-Season Plus tires in size 225/45R17H to replace the ones I've had for the last ~3 years. I run Nokian WR-G2's in the winter months so strictly a 3-season tire for me. I got probably around ~45k or so out of the last set which is fine...

    The winter season is almost finished and it's the right time to think about new all-season or summer performance tire. And here are two simple reasons for that: 1. Improved handling - summer/performance tires will perform much better in warm and dry conditions. 2. Less wear & tear of your...

  11. 'Tis the Season: Oil Cooler Gasket Kaput

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    This morning it was about 10F/-12C, the first sort of cold day of the year. No problems, but my oil cooler gasket finally gave up the ghost as I entered the parking lot at work -- flashing oil light, dinging bell, a steady stream of oil showing where I went and a big puddle of oil forming up...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Recently I've been having these problems. When I start it, the starter motor seems to work fine, but sometimes it takes 2-3 tries (few seconds for each try), and only then the car starts. Sometimes, after 2-3 tries, the car starts, but with the ABS and ESP fail indicatiors on. Then, I shut...
