    So within the short period of time that I have owned my 2001 B5 V6 5spd I have gone through most of the major services: engine (timing + all extras), clutch, suspension components (half by choice), etc. Now the car is running like new minus a couple small things that have just been bothering...

    The oil temperature on my 2001.5 Passat 1.8T dips slightly while I am driving on the highway. It usually comes back up to normal (i.e. middle of the gauge) when I'm back on surface streets. This issue occurs occassionally. Anyone know what's wrong? Thanks.

    Hi I've now finally replaced all eight control arms, it only took two years. I do the work in my drive way so after finishing one it takes a while to convince myself to start another one. So the first ones i replaced two years ago were the upper two control arms. I now hear a loud clunk...

    I have to replaced my 7yr old battery in my car. I have read here that the Duralast 48L or 94R-DLG were good choices and the one in the car was a Nappa 48. I went with the Duralast 48 DLG from Autozone. It seems to be the exact same dimensions as the one removed but I can't get in to sit flush...

    Looking for a set of new or slighly used (only a few thousand miles at most) of H&R sport springs for an 02 1.8T sedan, #54773. I may consider other springs as well, such as neuspeeds, that have a similar drop, looking for the most drop on normal progressive springs. Looking for about $150...

    At WOT the RPMs bounce a little, I mean a little little. Between 3.2k and 4.5k it does it, after that it doesnt do it. I recently put a K04 in and the N75H valve. I am still on stock FPR, ECU and injectors. Is it possible the ECU cant keep up with the new turbo? Everything is hooked up...

    I have some 8mm spacers that I'm putting on and I need some lugs to cover that reduction of offset. Locking would be ideal. EDIT: Forgot to mention I need ball seat lugs. Thanks, -Andrew

    Just had new front tires installed today and drove home. Car felt fine driving at 60 kph. Drove tonight on the highway and felt a bit of shaking. Its not as severe but can be felt sightly. Didin't feel this (slight) shaking with my old worn tires at highway speeds. What could it be? Need help...

One time all seems fine and will be for the next few days then goes out like a bulb has expired. I was going to switch the bulbs from drivers side to passenger and vice versa to...

    Has anyone ever run Bilstein Sports on a non-lowered car? I know that the HDs are recommended for stock ride height, and the Sports for lowered applications, but what, if any, negative consequences would there be in a Bilstein Sports/stock-spring combo? The reason I ask is I am considering...

    As I left a parking lot to day, the guy in front of me who was too far out decided to back up a little to stay out of the way of oncoming traffic. He didnt see me and backed in to me slightly. It really wasnt bad at all, hardly noticible, but he DID crack the chrome on my grill in a couple of...

    My girlfriend managed to hire a 2005 B5.5 Passat TDI for a trip to a meeting for work and she gave me a chance to take it for a quick spin. I thought it would be interesting to compare it to my 1999 1.8T B5. I'll save any in depth review for the main forum. But here I have a curious...

    I was just looking for feedback on what might be going on. For almost a year now the heat in my 1.8t has been very weak. Like, not even liveable on high. AC isnt effected at all, just the heat. I was reading some posts to try to diagnose the problem and came with two common reasons: the impeller...
