  1. Guess what I'm doing this weekend

    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.

    New Member Introductions
    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

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    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. Said goodbye to my '04 GLX this weekend

    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...
  6. Interesting car at my house this weekend (not a Passat though)

    Anything Auto
    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...

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    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...

    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.
