    Hey folks, I've driven VWs for a few years now and absolutely love the experience. The only part I hate about my passat is when it needs maintenance, which is why I've come here to expand my DIY knowledge and hopefully save my self from stealership shop time.

    Before I get into what's going on, the car is a 2004 1.8t, FWD with tiptronic, APR 93 tuned. It has almost 105k miles and is current on maintenance, save for the upcoming oil/filter change at 105k miles. A few weeks back I was working on something and checked the oil. It was a tad low, so I...

    Hello all I got my '00 B5 Passat about 2 months ago and after seeing this forum I have decided to keep it instead of using it as bait for a Muscle Car. My priority list consist of: Turbo, intercooler, lowering it, tint, new brake rotors, and new wheel and tires.

    So I'm trying to install a new stereo system in my B6 Passat. I'm not 100% sure what audio system I have, but it's the 6 CD changer no nav version with a connection in the glovebox (no aux in or anything). After taking off the door panel, and disconnecting the stock woofer assembly, I noticed...

    Everytime it rains, a small amount of water is collecting in the driver side backseat floor/carpet. after several decent rains, it will actually pool up. Any ideas on what/where the leak could be coming from? I have read about the plugs under the battery getting clogged, so i cleaned those...
