    So, I've had my share of alarm issues, and finally fixed them. Haven't seen any problems in years. Anyway, Florence just blew through here, and sure enough, I've got alarm problems. First time driving the car today, tried to arm alarm, and off it goes. No way to arm without it triggering -...

    You know the feeling you got when you spotted your future wife / husband.......Same thing happened when I saw this Passat. I have owned VW's for the past 10 years (i'm 32) from Golfs, Jettas, CC's, but the B5.5 passat grandpa has always caught my eye. Long story short, I'm going to look at the...

    After many years of drooling over keithwblooms car and some others in here, I pulled the trigger on a set of PSS9's for my '04 GLX. Within the next couple of weeks I'll be pushing the car into the garage for a brand new clutch set-up and installing the new coil-overs. When I get there I'll be...

    I don't really know. The battery compartment was flooded though. I think the TCM is jacked up. :hmmm: But it's cheap. We'll see. Lastly, if you were building a fence and you dug the hole and anchored the first post, the next one you worked on would be... (the second post) LOL

    On my newly aquired FWD 2000 Passat GLX wagon I was originally planning to do the very common 19x8.5 front, 19x9.5 rear but am having trouble finding the wheels I want in the offsets I want without paying a hefty premium. I have one lead but it is still up in the air. I have an apportunity to...

    So I had a main bearing cap bolt break and damage the trigger wheel. I pulled the pan and lightly hammered the wheel back into shape and made sure it was clearing the crank sensor. I can start it, albeit roughly, and it runs for the most part. The EPC light keeps coming on along with the...

    a STOP check coolant light? I just flushed and refilled my 2002 1.8T with Orange extended-life antifreeze from Advanced Auto Parts. I read it was good for aluminum heads, water pump, etc. It was full strength, so mixed with 50% distilled water. Is the resistance in the G12 different from the...
