  2. Why such reverence for G12 / G13 coolant..??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I totally understand the need for proper fluids. Correct synthetic motor oil for the engine. Correct ATF for the auto tranny. Correct mineral steering pump fluid. But I don't understand the worship of G12 and G13 coolant. To me, it is the one fluid that maybe doesn't matter if you use something...

    New Member Introductions
    So I ordered apexcone 35w 8000k hids from ddmtuning. I ordered bulb h7 per echo's write up. I read the write up like 8 times as thoroughly as I could to make sure I understood what I was doing before I even opened up the hood. I felt pretty confident, but when I open up the hood I felt...
  10. Front passenger mat, why such an awkward shape?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I thought I had a wrong set of mats in my car but when I checked at the dealer, all mats seem to be shaped that way. Why is the skinny portion not covering the floor properly, any ideas?
  11. Because straight people are such shining examples

    Sorry, Gay People… Ban divorce? Let's just ban marriage and make it really easy. Or maybe just ban hypocrites.
  12. Trying terrorists here.. Why is it such a big F'ing deal ?

    The Black Hole
    Aren't we the biggest, baddest kid on the block ? What are we afraid of ? Our jails can't hold them ? Well, aren't the people we DID ALREADY try for the 1993 bombings convicted and serving time in OUR jails ? I've read it's because it was "an act of war.".. Ok, what "country attacked us that we...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi all- Went to the shop (Induktion MS in Severn, MD) to get my CV joint checked out since I noticed the 'black ring of death' during my last oil change.

  18. Dead MAF and is there such a thing?

    B5 Garage
    Quick question. What happens when your MAF is completely dead? I know they go bad and cause trouble, but are there different stages of going bad? I think mine might be dead. I get a lean code on my Vag-com and when I clear the CEL the car runs terrible for a bit then smooths out. When it...
  19. Anyone knows how to modify the DRL such that it uses high beam instead of low beam?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a 2000 passat 1.8T. Since I installed HID for low beam and when I put the handbrake off the HID won't work properly and my friend told me it's because DRL only provides 8v of power instead of 12V. I want to modify the DRL wiring such that it uses high beam as DRL. I know I have to...
