  1. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    After about 13 years of ownership, 162,500 miles, and waaayyyy too much time spent here (with over 5,000 posts!), my period of B5.5 ownership is soon coming to an end. Hans, my GLS 1.8T M/T Anthracite Blue Wagon will soon be headed out of my garage. I had decided that while he may (or may not...

    I saw the post regarding vinyl wrap the interior trim. And see people can even wrap the wheel with this stuff. Now I come up with an idea to wrap the roof rack to matte silver. Anyone done this with picture to share?

    I am going to be replacing the cam cap seals soon, but was wondering that if I wrap my exhaust were the oil is dripping on, would it stop the buring smell? I am just looking for extra protection against the burning smell in the cabin. Any helpful info is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi everyone, Now I didn't know where to put this as there is no "other" section, but if a mod would like to move it, please do! My daily driver and winter car is my manual 2001.5 Passat 1.8T that I LOVE. I just ordered a TON of maintenance and mod parts for it that I'll be making a thread for...

    So i had this idea of wrapping all factory black bottom panels, side moulding, window moulding, and rear badge in carbon fiber vinyl. I think that it would pop against tornado red. However, after consulting with local shop, i was quoted over $1340. Obviously, i thought that was a bit outragious...

    Ok. So I had this idea to use the Carbon Fiber Di-Noc film to wrap the factory black paneling on the bottom of my Passat and the door pillars. My Passat is Turbo Red, and I have Black housing headlights and my tailights are blacked out and my wheels have a lot of black on them(Will post car pics...

    So, I've decided to pull the trigger and purchase the Frankenturbo F4H-L. After much research I still have a few questions... My man Oliver, over at SpeedTuningUSA in MD, is hooking me up with a fully custom tune for $275. I, being the 18 year old that I am, of course want the maximum power...

  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I am debating this right now. I know I want the roof black on my car, so the fact that vinyl can come off doesn't do anything for me. I had my mirrors painted gloss black yesterday and I was speaking to a guy in socal to wrap my roof. He wants 170 for the wrap, which he will do. He does great...

    Should I do it? My bro works for a specialty advertising company and they've just bought a bunch of equipment to start doing full vinyl wraps, so he's trying to convince my wagon to be the guinea pig. Part of me wouldn't touch this with a 10 foot pole, but the other part wants to do it just...
