    I had to have ECM replaced & was going thru the coding on individual systems. Address 08: Auto HVAC - Coding 17200 - now according to the hints in the VAG-COM - 7 is a Passat W8 while 5 is a Passat with L-Flap. Which one is correct for this car? Addres 36: Seat Mem, Drvr - Coding is blank...

    I'm just curious to know why folks need to run a stereo with thousands of watts? is it bragging rights? I guess I can relate to that. It's like having all kinds of horsepower at your disposal. But really though, all these super high wattage rigs, what gives? Do people think high wattage systems...

    I'm looking for a good exhaust system for a B5 A4 2.8L exhaust system, folks. it will include (hopefully) flexpipes - which may mean I need to replace the cats as well, knowing how the exhaust systems on these cars are put together. I'm not finding anything that includes the flexpipes, meaning...

    ok, time to bite the bullet... the flexpipe on my 2005 B6 A4 1.8T with 6 speed manual trans has just popped open, and the y pipe is also leaking. I'm now officially looking for a good exhaust with a sweet little note to it - nothing too loud, as I commute 120 miles a day. so far, this is what...

    I installed the drivetrain from a 2000 Passat into a 73 Porsche 914. I swapped the dash, steering column, engine, tranny... I need to figure out a way to remove the ABS and air bag system from the instrument cluster so I don't have to listed to the alarms. I do have a Vag-Com but Ross Tech...

    Just curious to what other owners of the passat with similar styling use as far as subs. I just want a good sound with limited trunk rattle. I also am curious if it is worth purchasing a capacitor or if the alternator is good enough. also, for those with the monsoon stock sound system what...

    I was wondering how the ECU determines when to limit boost- when to power the "N75" wastegate regulator valve. I've heard that without a MAP sensor, the boost limit is determined by mass air flow and RPM. Does that sound right?

    I'm new here, but I'll get right to it. Has anyone figured out the best placement for subs in the 2000 Passat coupes? I was hoping to fit them into the passenger cab in order to conserve room in my trunk and avoid truck rattle. Any ideas? Thank you! Justin
  9. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Have anyone here tested the navi system that comes with the 2012 passat? I have a 08 with a lease expiring soon and I'm looking at different choices. The navi system in my 08 is just RETARDED. Its the hardest to operate I have ever seen. In top, they charge for the updates. I see that now, at...

    Has anyone found any good multi-purpose navi systems? When I search I find styles that look similar. I'm looking for a navi that looks like the one in the 3rd pic in this Sticky or any that has a different type of style. Can anyone help?
