    Hey Friends, Almost done with front-end work on the 2.8 (TB, WP, seals, Cam chains and guides, alternator (while I have access) and now to the power steering pump (which was leaking).

    Hi guys, I'm tired already of the 'Elegant Green' so I was thinking about painting my B5 with 'Nogaro Blue' or 'Sprint Blue'. What do you think? Please help me decide between those lovely RS4 B5 colors. I want to paint the Passat with a B5 platform color. To remain on the same 'era'. :thumbup:

    For some reason I can't seem to find a straight forward answer on what the bulb number or type of bulb is used for the front turn signal in my B5.5. It's driving me crazy. Does anyone have the actual part number. I would like to replace my bulbs with LED's in my turn signals so I'm trying to...

    I realized I hadn't had a car rant thread in a while, so here is my review of my latest vehicle conquest, a 2013 Toy... err... Scion XB (not sure what release edition, but it had some kind of body kit) About 8 weeks ago, I was driving on the freeway, minding my own business in the 5.5. NPR on...

    The car is a 98 passat 1.8t manual. All control arms replaced, tie rods and ends just replaced, and driver side axle replaced bc I though that was the issue. It ended up being the tie rod ends causing the inital problem so replaced those after the axle didn't fix it. Now when the axle was being...

    The whole PA safety and emission inspection is a scam. It is probably wrote into law by lobbyist working for car repair industry. How good for an emission inspection to just read the OBDII for code? The worst part is the safety inspection. Their favorite lies are about tires and brakes. Easy...

    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...

    I have a 2003 volkswagon passat and the car won't start. I've read forum after forum trying to figure the problem out and I'm not very car savy. It seems that the car won't start in the cold. I replace the battery with a brand new one and the next day, sure enough, the problem arose yet again...

    Happy Thanksgiving PW! Hopefully you guys are having a great time:) Lately I havent had the best luck with my Passat. One of the front wheels is out of balance, then it wouldnt go into Tip mode, RPMs arent stable, and the list goes on and on. I took the center console out to find out why it...

    So I was tired of using Mother’s Back to Black, Black dye, peanut butter, whatever…anything to blacken my lowers. Just plain tired of it. Never lasted that long, and frankly, they still looked bad, just blacker when done. I stumbled upon some Wurth stone guard and decided to go crazy. I have...

    I have reading up a lot to try to find out if the turbo is getting tired or if there is something else wrong. What do you have? I have a 2004 1.8t AWM, auto tranny, APR93, MBC in parallel (set to cap off at 15/16 psi), N75J, Forge DV, stock K03, 108k miles. Issue: under WOT and normal...

    One of the biggest weak areas of my Passat have always been the brakes. The front brakes use the same size discs, caliper and pads as a MK4 1.8T / VR6 except the Passat weights considerably more. The brake fade is so considerable that just one really hard stop from 140kmh would completely...
