    Whale penis leather interior. That's all you really need to know about the $1.5 million Dartz Prombron Monaco Red Diamond Edition. Yes, the diamond-encrusted white gold gauges and gold-plated bulletproof windows are impressive, but seriously, whale penis leather interior. The already...

    I have a 05 Passat wagon, and I was wondering if there is any SUV type roof rack crossbar (kind of flat and low) that can be attached to the existing factory rails.
  8. 5W40 is SUV and truck oil?!?

    New Member Introductions
    Mobil 1's 5W40 is listed as SUV and truck synthetic oil. What's up with that? :confused: Why does VW recommend such a thick grade of oil for the Passat? For some reason, it makes me a little uneasy putting truck oil into my sedan. And another thing.. don't people recommend switching to a...
  9. Mobil 1 5W - 40 SUV & Truck Oil

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Yesterday, I scored some of the old stock M1 5W - 40 SUV & Truck oil at the local WalMart for $3.50 on the clearence rack. I know that this particular M1 oil is not on the VW approved list, but I am willing to give it a go for my 1.8T Passat. Anybody else using this oil in a VW turbo application?

  14. Lexus Hybrid (Car, not the SUV)?

    Anything Auto
    My dad wants something super great on mileage. Has a Passat GLX now. Can't get a new Jetta or Passat diesel in Massachusetts. Doesn't want used (hard to find anyway.) So he's considering a hybrid. Besides the few hybrid trucks and SUVs coming out, what cars are there? The Honda has the Accord...

  17. 99 variant "SUV" suspension suggestions?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Our wagon gets loaded often with kayaks, camping gear, garden supplies, and everything but the kitchen sink for trips up north. When it's not loaded I'd like a decent sporty feel (similar to our A4 with sport suspension.. is that 1BE?) In other words a good balance between comfort and control...
  18. Why do alloys create that SUV effect?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    It occured to me today, but i cannot think why. I have noticed comments to this effect when people put large rims on their cars, such as 18's or 19's. I cannot see why this effect happens because regardless of how much you enlarge your rims by, that increase in size is all around, so it should...

    OK I need some help from fellow car people. The basic gist of the story is that my wife and I have had a 2002 Jetta Wagon for the past year. It is going back the manufacturer for various reasons. The wife hates station wagons and I hate SUV/Trucks. I don't want to turn this into a giant...
