Bring the car to my indy for timing belt change, transmission fluid and filter change, cam follower change.

Well I got the mod bug and it has bit hard! Nice that mods and upgrades to the engine are so much cheaper than my old car saab 9-3 aero.
Here are the cosmetics I have done:
Smoked the bright orange turn signals because I could not justify the price on buying the blacked out after market ones...
Im looking around my b5 and i notice that a lot of the interior bits look a lot like the mk4 interior. like the door pull, sun visor, and dash switches. can any of the jetta interior stuff work on the B5?
We have settled on Passat to buy as the main car for my wife. She looked at Honda Accord EX-L, Hyundai and Nissan among others. Eliminating all of them, we are now considering which Passat to buy and how to get a good deal (runner up was Hyundai Sonata). We are...
So last week I finally got my control arm/tierod kit installed along with drivers and passenger side axles, and what a difference it made. The car drives very smooth and is now much tighter.
I searched for a good Shop in the Philly area and finally came across Euro Spec Auto Care. The shop...
So I received my H&R sports and front Bilstein sports (rears still on the way).
I was so excited that I couldnt wait any longer for the rears and decided Ill pop the rears in when they get here (they are extremely easy to replace).
So here's what we did; replaced front struts and springs all...
Something interesting I found online:

The main gripe I had with the filter is the expense of the activated-carbon treated filter (around double the OEM cost of the plain filter), considering that...
Well, my parents were looking for a new affordable safe and reliable car that’s also comfortable on long road trips for 3-4 people, and must be an automatic. First, they wanted to look at the Corolla or Camry. So I went ahead and contacted several dealers to get some internet quotes. I’ve...

For those who don't know what I had last year:

I saw this on the newsstand in JFK Airport in New York. This car is completely sexy. WTF!! I hope no one has beat me to this.

Nothing real special about this one. Just got the necessary work finished (did TB, both CV axles and now springs/shocks in the first 12,000 since I have had it) so now I can begin the fun work :D
Clean and with the new Neuspeed Sport Springs and Bilstein Sport Shocks.
And yes, I know I need...
