    I have a 2007 Passat 103 Tdi with 6-speed DSG and have been considering replacing it but the wife and I like it so much that it is likely we will replace it with another Passat.

    I have found a couple threads discussing the underhood felt insulation (that inevitably gets eaten by rodents) where guys removed it entirely. How has the paint on the hood held up after this decision? Any other ill effects that make the $100 price tag worth the cost, or is going naked an...

    I did a search and found threads from 2003-05, but nothing more recent. I have an 04.5 w/ the 1.8T that has the under-hood insulating pad that has been chewed up from mice attempting to make nests. I was looking to replace it but thought about just removing it entirely. Have there been any...

    I am going to be doing my suspension this summer and wanted to get an idea about the longevity of different suspensions, change in ride height, comfort, and ride after several months or years of ownership.
