    I have a lot of Liqui Moly 5w40 Diesel synthetic left from when my 2005 Jetta TDI was working. Long story short, it was the worst cat I've ever owned. Liqui Moly is expensive stuff and I don't want to waste it. Will it work in my 2003 Passat 1.8T? What is different about the diesel 5w40...

I really want to go with something strictly business... something light-weight but that still looks good but doesn't break the bank. I don't want to go any...

    Both the B5 and truck can haul 4 or more pple, but the B5 does so more comfortably. The truck can tow much better than the B5. It can haul more stuff too. The B5 is more fun to drive since it's a manual tranny, but the truck tranny has a Tow\Haul mode that the B5 doesn't. The B5 has a better...
