    2004 B5.5 Passat Weather is starting to get nice and upon use of my sunroof yesterday I had trouble closing it. It appears the black plastic "wind gaurd", or whatever it's called, will not retract far enough when closing and causes the sunroof to open again. Does anyone know if there is an...

    I currently have what I believe is a sheep skin mitt (long fibers, yellow/tan in color, though not as soft as the Sonus mitt I had before), unfortunately something about it seems to be marring the paint. It is maybe 3-4 years old, and is used to wash the whole car, paint, lowers and wheels...

    SO I have three wheels I really like, but I can't decide if I want 18's or 19's and which of the four styles. They will go on this car, a 2002 W8 Passat First, I really like these because they remind me of the SLR McLaren and those cool wheels. I dunno if they will look good on a W8 passat...
