  4. Does anyone make mini sub enclosure for variants?

    Mobile Electronics
    I've been using the search to find out who makes the mini sub enclosure for variants since StLB5 does not make them any more. I found threads from StLB5 getting out of the business, but don't see thread for anyone taking over for him. Is this product, or a similar one available? I don't want...

    I finally got the time to lower my wife's passat last weekend (had the parts for over a year) so I wanted to throw some pics out here for everyone to check out. Next up are some fogs for the red B5 (mine) and some HIDs for the black 5.5 (Annemarie's). Why I gave my wife the 18's I'll never know...

  8. Variants: W8 or Audi Allroad?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Folks, I need your input. I am contemplating getting a Variant, due to the growing family and am considering both the W8 and the Audi Allroad. Since I am not in a rush, I would most likely be waiting for a 6 speed in either variation. So, I know that there are a number of pros and cons for...
  9. Are B5.5 4-Motion Variants prone to F. Brake Rotor warping?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So, reading a few posts about rotors this morning got me wondering about this. I've got an '02 4-Motion Wagon and the first rotors were severely warped within the first 15K miles. I replaced them with a set of cross-drilled (Breke?) rotors that seemed to get slightly warped within the next 15K...
  10. Quick and easy hidden Phatbox install for variants

    Mobile Electronics
    This is my slightly ghetto Phatbox install on my 03 variant. Like everyone else the thing wouldn't fit in the slot. So I took out the whole shelf and mounted the Phatbox on the inside lid via the magic of velcro, it's stayed in place for over 2 weeks now with no problems. Without the shelf...

  15. need to see lowered Variants

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    If any of you haven't seen I'm selling my KW v2s (my wife thinks I spend too much time adjusting them) so now I need to see some Variants with different suspensions. I really like the ride of the Eibach Pro-System in my 99 but I don't think know how they'll look or if it'll be low enough. I...
  16. Loose Rain Gutter Mouldings on Variants, Solutions??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have an '03 Variant that is on it's second set of rain gutter mouldings because the original set kept lifting at the ends. The second set is no better, I will be going back to the dealer on this , but I thought I would canvass the Club B5 Variant crowd to see if they are having the same...
  17. New suspension for Variants

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm looking to purchase a lowering suspension (shocks and springs) for my 99 1.8t wagon and noticed that there are not a lot of options for a mild drop. I can get either the sport set-up (HR or Nuespeed) with an aggressive drop, or a oem set-up (eibach) with a mild drop. I'm looking at the...

  19. Help!! Need pics of modded variants.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My wife is ready for a new car. She is currently driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, but I'm slowly talking her into purchasing a Passat wagon. This is what I have for myself, and I'll be keeping it, so if I'm able to get her to buy a variant - cool! She wants something "sexy" so I need...
  20. Variants With Tint

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I cannot make up my mind what kind of tint I want to use or even which windows to tint. I will either tint all of the window or all of them except for the driver and front passanger. Then I am not sure if I should go 50% or 35% or a combination (50% front 35% rear). :nervous: too many...
