    Anyone try 50 weight oil on the V6? 30 burned up too quick, 40 was a little better, i'm thinking of going to 50 for the summer. Has anyone had any luck with that? Yeah it's another oil thread...
  2. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I bought a 2001.5 passat 1.8t 5-speed a month ago to replace an integra for a daily driver. Other than a 6-disc ch changer, the passat has basic features - cloth seats, power windows, locks, cruise, ac and the homelink universal transmitter. I have been enjoying it so much that I started...

    I had a hard time finding a weight for this wheel so the first thing I did when I got them was weight them. The most accurate digital scale in my house (I have 6 or 7 of them) says they are 26.0 lb. I weighed them by weighing myself, then me with the wheel, alternating, three times. Same...

Live in Atlanta, car is garaged, wife's DD. I've always...

  6. B5 Garage
    I was thinking about trying to cut some weight from my car to obviously accelerate faster but also to save on gas hopefully a bit. I've got a 12 in the back of my car so that added about 25-35 pounds to the car. I was thinking of what I could drop. Heres what I've come up with, the resonator...

  8. Wheel and Tire Forum
    I understand that alloy wheel weight effects handling and performance but I've never seen any mention of how much a good wheel should weigh in a given size. I'm concerened with 18-8.5 in my case, but I guess any info would be helpful.
  9. Wheel and Tire Forum
    Ok, 2 questions. First, I was not able to get the wheels I wanted which were 23 lbs a piece and I was wondering if I would be able to feel the difference between 23 and 27 lb wheels and what performance and mpg loss I would experience? And these wheels are et42, which may need spacing. Are...

    I know... Another dumb oil question. :thumbdown Done some searches and have not seen much... This is more of an opinion question than anything... currently running 5-30 syn. I have a few friends telling me that I should be nice to my car and run 0-30 syn (Mobile) in it. Will the difference be...

  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm asking an oil question ...so frickin' sue me. Say a person were to run a light weight oil in the summer months - 0w-40, perhaps. Then say they suffered a minor stroke or something and ran something else - maybe a 5w-40, when it got cold out. Could that change have a potentially negative...
  14. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Just bought 20mm steel wheel spacers to fit front & back (Bolt to hub type). I went steel for strength. Bolt to to hub type for ease of use. I could not believe how much they weighed! 2.25 Kilos (5lbs) each, with fixing bolts. That's a total of 9 kilos of unsprung weight added. Will I really...
