    I'm almost at work after driving for over an hour, and I'm waiting at an intersection for cars to pass just across from the gate at work. as I start to jet across the intersection, I hear a little pop, and suddenly my exhaust got LOUD. I cruise thru the gate, and the guard had this goofy grin...
  6. Had my TDI CR 140 remapped yesterday. 196.2 Hp & 316.4lb/ft

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    I took my diesel CC for a full custom remap yesterday by Will at Performance Torque in the West Midlands, UK, and am very happy indeed with the results. Torque has been limited so as not to be too aggressive on the DSG box and the car is totally standard other than the remap. My main driver...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hey peoples, On Wednesday, my car began to lose some power while on the highway driving to the golf course. After golf I started the car and heard a sound of air escaping "Psssss" coming from directly behind the manifold. The car was running, but every couple of seconds it would shudder a bit...
  10. Looked at a W8 Wagon yesterday

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi again folks, So, even though we're not ready (or had not planned) to buy, yet, I thought I should see a W8 up close and in person. In my intro I listed my shortlist of possible cars, but I forgot to mention the Phaeton. Rare and oddball cars can often be very good used values. Yesterday we...

  12. 64 Galaxie 500 in the garage yesterday.

    Anything Auto
    It's been a long time since I worked on a car almost as old as I am. Had to show the owner's son how to set timing and adjust the Holley carb. Car has been converted to HEI, electric fuel pump and Automatic. 390 with a 2 bbl, dual exhaust with glass packs only. Sounded pretty good. Got it...
  13. purchased a used transmission yesterday - hope it will be the solution

    B5 Garage
    After 3,000 miles of driving with an annoying transmission related issue (I believe) I bought a used transmission for my 00 tip. This vehicle was bought for my daughter and it had been water damaged. The list of attempts to find the surging and slipping low rpm transmission problems include...
  14. I've seen one yesterday ...

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    ... here in WA state, parked in front of a Shopko. I think it looks awesome, very expensive looking. I pulled into the parking lot, saw it, circled it 5 times (it was parked far away from the crowd, all by itself) and wondered what it was as there was no name emblem on it. So I looked it up at...
  15. So I got a call from my wife yesterday......

    Anything Auto
    It seems while I was on my way to Cape Cod my son smashed in the tailgate on my wife's Passat while backing out of the garage. He forgot a friend of mine had parked his Ram 1500 in the driveway.:banghead: Tailgate, wiper, and glass are toast. Everything else looks OK. However, until I can pry...
  16. Did a rear brake job yesterday....

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    on my wifes 02 1.8T Variant. New pads, rotors and caliper hardware. I noticed some metal to metal noise a few days ago. The left rear inner pad was just about gone. No brake warning lights. I needed to open up the rear left bleeder to compress the caliper puck back in with the aid of a brake...
  17. so I get a quick text from my wife yesterday...

    Anything Auto
    the text msg was about my daughter having a little trouble with the car. this is the 98 Opal Pearl A4 sedan that I bought a while back, that I've been working on for my youngest. I had asked her to start the car yesterday and let it run for a little bit. It has a coolant leak, and what I...
  18. Test drove a '10 Jetta TDI yesterday

    Anything Auto
    So, my local VW dealer sent me and probably thousands of other people a flyer for a buy-back promo. I bit and went down yesterday to see their inventory. Just for kicks I drove the 2010 Jetta TDI sedan, 6spd manual, and that car is pretty nice. It has some really nice interior features that my...

  20. Got my first ticket yesterday

    Anything Auto
    Got two citations for not wearing helmet for me and the passenger on a scooter :banghead: :banghead:. The fine runs around $165 each. Need your help guys for the suggestions, should i just pay the ticket and get it over with or go to the court and plead guilty. $330 is too much to bear as a...
