  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi Everyone, I am planning to get an aluminum skid plate for my 2003 1.8t. Do you have comments on the Thor and the ECS skid plates in terms of durability, ease of installation, the area of protection etc.? They are roughly the same price. Thanks.

    How hard is it to change the control arms on the street? Currently it's been sitting nearly a month on the curb, i've been starting her up daily. My front control arm disconnected and this is what's keeping me from moving the car. I have to do the passenger side first and then I can move her...

    Anyone have any tips or help (write up) on installing these? I've got everything but instructions apparently. Spring orientation, ect. Maybe pics of how low yours are set? Logic says the "progressive" or tighter coil winds should be at the top. Any help would be great. No first timer to...

    The original, unmolested (and never installed) Shine Racing SRS rear torsion bar stiffener I modeled the now fabled run of SnunkBars after. Personally — and I am naturally biased — the SnunkBar is a better get, but they are all gone. So I offer this gen-u-wine SRS rear sway with mounting...

    Passat Street Race vs a Lambo?!? (oh the things you stumble upon on Youtube...) I found this today while lurking in the depths of youtube.I can't tell if the Passat was chipped or had a big turbo, bit it held it's own in the first couple of gears since the Lambo driver didn't want to toast his...

    Seems like all the threads I've run into are pretty old. I'm having the "clack"-ing brake pad issue on my fronts. Seems like the car was fitted with the pads that move around in the piston. So, what's the latest good brakepad for street use? AJ

    I used the pbr axxis ultimates before and they worked well, but I was wondering if anyone had other suggestions for high performing street pads. Dust and life is not really a concern. I am looking for something that has a strong bite even when the brake system hasn't warmed up yet.

    These are two brand new motor mounts for any B5 vehicle, I bought them when one shop told me my mounts were bad, turned out only my snub mount was bad. Replaced it and held onto these just in case my other mounts went out because I had almost 140k on the original mounts, sold my Passat about a...

    As the title states, I have a brand new B6 Passat 034 Motorsports dogbone mount insert. This insert is the street density rubber...60 durometer solid bushing (approximately 35% stiffer than stock). I purchased this from another member; however, decided to just keep the OEM mount and refresh it...

    I was never a polo type of guy but when i saw this cross polo somehow this grew on me now. It seems to have alot of potential, 2.0 FSI AWD :wrench:
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I know a few people here have been running the Street Density mounts from 034 Motorsports for a little while and was hoping to get some feedback on them. There doesn't seem to be much posted since 2008/2009 about them. I have a "bleeding" motor mount so it's time for something new and I like...
