  3. Blaupunkt Philadelphia 845 - Thinking of upgrading

    Mobile Electronics
    I have a '16 R-Line, and I'm thinking of ditching the stock radio for the Philadelphia 845 HU. Has anyone installed this? I know that part is easy, as it is custom built for the Passats/Jettas, etc, and matches the original HU. However, I'm more curious about how it interfaces w/ the cars built...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I am taking my 2009 Passat wagon in for a timing chain tensioner replacement this week. The cost will be $425 CAN inclusive of parts and labour. If the chains look loose, the final cost could be $1100 CAN. The car has 110,000 kms and seems to be running well. However, I want to make this car...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've been talking to a customer service rep from Kensun but he's pretty slow to get back and not the best at answering the questions I had. So I figured I would ask here and get some better advice. :) I'm concerned with being pulled over because of them from being too bright. I would be...
  8. Thinking about upgrading from my B5.5 to a B7

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Any B7 owners in here are former B5.5 owners? How do you like it? Hows the maintenance? Im curious to know what the main issues B7 owners come across when it comes to maintenance and recurring problems that may exist in that model. Ive never cared for the Body style but i like the fact that...

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I have a GREAT 2002 Passat which I love. Have had very few problems. It's been a great car and has 202,500 miles. The only problem now is an oil leak that spots our driveway. My wife objects and she's right....the garage floor is spotty with oil. I could have it fixed....but maybe it's time for...

    Our GLS 4 motion needs it's valve cover gaskets doing on both sides, and cam shaft seals, which I was happy todo myself. But I've recently been told by my mechanic it may also need the head gasket doing (i'm getting a second opinion on monday). However, down the the road a guy is selling a GLX...

    Anything Auto
    Been noodling the idea for a few years, and frankly, the desert of options for small DIY projects related to S4 is driving me crazy.

    My 2004 GLX is sitting in my garage completely helpless. Clutch slips so bad I can't even get into my own driveway. As the car has been sitting around I'm sizing up the project ahead me. Trans removal, clutch change, blah blah. I have been pondering the thought of a engine swap in my car. I had...
