  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion Stumbled across this website while searching for interchangeable parts for my B5.5 and hadn't seen it mentioned here before.

    I bought one of those new version OEM antennas that are about 6 inches long and rubber from a site I saw here, and since it hit the garage door while backing out I'm not getting AM anymore. So I need a new one. Anyone know which site that was? (Scotty?)

    Hey guys, just registered here. I own a 02 W8 Tip Sedan, just finished doing a brake overhaul on it. I ended up installing R1 Concepts premium blank rotors (powdercoated black ones) along with Hawk HPS pads. Also, I removed all of the brake calipers and stands and painted them with a...
