    My car's a 2001, with remotes that look like this: One of the originals is quite worn-looking: the Panic button's (never used) red panel has disappeared, and the outlines on the other buttons have long worn away. A newer remote would look better. I can swap the electronics and key blade and...

    Is there an existing thread about what size wheels and tires will fit on a 2002 B5? The wife has killed ours with the curb rash and I see there's some fantastic prices on take off wheels floating around, but they're all for larger wheels and tires than what we have. Thanks!:thumbup:

    Would a 5x4.5 bolt pattern fit on my 2000 passat wagon? I know my size is a 5x4.1 but didnt know if that little of a difference would make any problems. Appreciate any help!
