what can i do to my car to personalize it a bit?
I know i should drop it + new wheels...what else?
Is it even worth it with 65k miles? It's getting old!

TIA
If you want to "tastefully mod" your car, a lot of people here will pitch in with great ideas. As for pimping it, give Xhibit a holla. And by the way, you have one of those unique colors that would be good for pimping.

Since when is a 65k mile car old? :poke: :D That V6 will easily last another 100k miles with proper maintenance. As for mods, I'd get a new suspension first, then wheels. You can get a stubby antenna for ~$15, eyelids, M3 lip spoiler, badgeless grill, HID kit, etc. Check out the Classifieds and the Marketplace forums.

Wow, My B5 has 115k miles on it and is still running very strong. I should see at least 200k miles. Replacing minor things but dont date your (passat)

As Arthrogrian19 said, browse the Marketplace for good used parts from good people.

Try:
Springs/Coilovers
Rims/Tires
Exhaust
Projector Headlights/HID's
Badgeless Grill
Eyelids
Lip Spoiler
Votex Body kit

Thats a few thousand right there, that should keep you occupied for a bit. Then engine performance Parts. Alot of the parts I mentioned are USDM and available in the States but I'm sure you can get them shipped to Canada. The list can go on forever my friend. My list fills two pages and I'm not done.

*unpimp your auto*:lol:

at 65k you may want to think about doing your timing belt and all the stuff you should do while you're at it (search for it). You just take care of that, and 65k miles won't mean shit. It usually runs about $1000, but man, felt sooooooo good to know it was taken care of and behind me.

after that its happy modding. i suggest suspension first.

bon chance

Wheels and suspensions would be my first choice, plus tinted windows :thumbup:. Par contre, l'idee des feux anti brouillard jaunes sur une voiture de cette couleur ne serait pas la meilleure idee je pense, ca depend des gens :D . Bonne continuation :thumbup:

check out the member sections as well as "The Showroom" for good ideas.
almost every color has a "______ only post HERE" type thread, you should be able to find one for mojave beige in there. it is a more rare color so you may have to actually search.
