  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Showed up at my work today. :thumbup: All coated aluminum Genuine Audi/VW. This will last the rest of my lifetime. Guess I'd better start watching that YouTube video now, seeing as I don't have a Bentley anymore. :rolleyes: Will be replacing the leaking one on my wife's 2003 GLX.

    Hello, Had to create a new account today since my old email is not accessible any longer and really would like to get some help on a car I have. Went camping, great relaxing weekend and just got back and now time to clean the garage and work on the car again. Kevin

    Wife was driving down the interstate on Sunday, I was in the passenger seat. She asks me if I see the smoke coming out behind the car. I say I do and tell her to pull over and she shuts the engine off immediately. I pop the hood to see steam coming out from timing cover, and black crap mixed...
  5. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Sold my '04 GLX this weekend to a co-worker of mine. My plans for this car really didn't materialize and it didn't end up being the car I wanted it to be, but certainly has given my wife and I some unforgettable memories. The car was purchased from out east and the bus ride my wife and I took...

    Not a Passat topic, so Moderator please move if you like. My son-in-law works for Karma's R&D group and brought this one for us to see. Definitely gets the looks on the road! It also makes a "Tron" electronic motorcycle sound when running at low speeds on the batteries.

    I'm hoping for some help with my 08 Passat VR6 4Motion. I wanted to take it to Grattan Raceway for a break in Flogging this weekend with the other Audi crazies but my drivers side High and Low Beams went out. All fuses are good. Is there a relay or a code that gets thrown when moisture gets in...

    Before (Its much cleaner in this pic! :lol:) : I started off with new wheel and tires. Got these OEM VW wheels for just $400 from a scrap yard, and splurged a bit on the tires (Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus). The new tires feel great, they drive very comfortably and handle well. Got a...

    So, Mercedes had a little stand at COTA last weekend for the F1 race. Thye had one of these on the stand and I fell in love. For under $50K base for the CLA AMG I was impressed for what you get.

  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Some of you may recognize this car. Haven't decided what to do with the roof and I already have some Madras or Mille Miglia spyders (the VZs are on loan). Drove all the way from Connecticut last night without a hitch. 214k and runs like a top. Gotta fix the lip though.
  17. B5 Garage
    Thought I would share my recent dumbass attack and hopefully it will prevent somebody else from doing what I did. I had to put my 03 V6 into service position to replace the AC compressor pulley bearing. The job went real smooth and the car is quiet now. a few days later I was rolling down the...

Then, on the way home from work, my...
