    Just doing the obligatory post—to weed out spammers. I’m sure I will be posting on here about specific problems. Hope I can be of some help and get some help too! Lol. Oh yeah: 2008 Passat 2.0 FSI. Mild fixer-upper. Thanks

    I made a mistake yesterday and bought 4 225-55-17 tires to replace the ones I have on my B5. I do realize I should have bought 225-45 instead but I screwed it up. Should I still try to mount them and try them on the car or is it a waste of time or even dangerous? My car currently has 3...

    Looking at maybe selling our minivan for a 2015 Passat V6 SEL. Supposedly brand new in a dealer showroom. So I have a few questions: 1) How much should I pay for it? 2) What should I look for in terms of issues for a car sitting in a showroom or lot for 2 years? 3) Would you do it? 4) Should I...

    I am about to embark on my 1st timing belt change on a 1999 AEB Passat, 1.8t. The car has 223,000 miles on it and I doubt the belt has been changed in over 100,000 so it is a ticking time bomb. My order for this project consisted of the ECS Tuning Standard timing belt kit which is the belt...

    Just picked up a 2014 SE a couple of weeks ago. I got it for $9999, a low price IMO, but there's a catch: the PO apparently liked to park it under trees with low-hanging branches, so I put money aside for a respray on the rear bumper and trunk lid. it also has 81K miles, a lot for a '14. My '05...

    Looking at a 2010 passat wagon. Mileage 73K. Being sold by a VW dealer. The engine is : 4 Cyl 2.0L Turbocharged Gas. Can someone please provide me with things to look out for? Questions to ask? I'm pretty skeptical about the Turbo. Are there common issues with the Turbo in this model? Anything...

    I've got two posts as required. Been looking at this site for a while, and now that I want to contact someone here with a rare desirable part for sale, I feel like I'm being led through a maze of admin that makes my car and this resource even harder to navigate. If I can't contact this seller...

    I would like to shout out to Paul (PZ) for his help in a big way last night. I was replacing my glove box yesterday. No big deal. I had just had the family out and about, and Christine (my 2000 v6 passat) was running just fine. I get home and take apart the glove box to replace the door, and...

    While there are lots of classic cars out there in shows that ceased production decades ago, I have a hard time getting other enthusiasts to see where I'm coming from when I say I would NOT in most cases. Here I go: Except for the time I was a teenager 40 years ago and appreciated any car I...

    I bought a Base 2005 GL back in October with 15" steelies and OEM 14-spoke plastic covers. One cover was cracked, the other three showed wear as well, so I ordered 4 new ones for around 200 bucks and will save the crappy ones for winter. I am a total stock kind of guy that refuses to modify my...

    Like the title for my thread asks, I'm wondering if we should refer to the 2016 Passat as the B7.5 model. After all, the car has undergone some minor sheet-metal changes this year - new hood, grille, headlight arrangement; not to mention the slightly-smaller taillights in back - so why not give...
