Whoa, you've got some serious issues with the design of your site there. My Netscape 7.1 just went ballistic and started to open up new windows like crazy. After about 15 seconds it took about 500 MB of my memory.

Needless to say, NO THANKS, I :heart: ClubB5!

As far as serious site issues go, i view the site on three locations everyday, and it loads for me just fine, there are no popups assocaiated with my site. Also we are not strictly a passat site, although some on on my site is selling one, and someone in my forum is selling some parts for one, and i sell preformance parts for them! Anyways i just thought that i would let you know that we are, and like volkswagen people, and I thought you guys would not put me down.

sory

The issue with Netscape 7.1 seems to be plugin related, but yes, it loads an as sload of new browser instances hogging up memory and annoying the shit out of me.

Your Clubb5.com link links to parts4vws.com. Your news reader on the home page is not scrollable in 7.1. Also, unless you got approval from VW to use their logo once they catch wind of your site you'll receive some correspondence, copyrighting a logo that infringes on an already trademarked logo is just asking for trouble, unless of course VW gave you approval. However, VW tends to be like the Beatles.

Also, if you are going to break out other models by platform 9in teh classifieds) you should do the same for the Passats.

Good luck with the site, it's a decent start.

FYI, this will probably get moved to OT.

Hey thanks for letting us know about the site. Maybe let us know what Passat specific parts you guys have.

Also, on this page, you refer to the 2001.5 -2003 Passat as a 2.0 liter. It is actually a 1.8t.

Thanks and keep us up to date on your goings on!

hmmmm...you're in CT and I am in CT, I would be curious to check out the operation or garage but there is no indication of an address. I am gearing up to do some tweaking on my 01 4-mot wagon. I'll check back in later... :roll:

thanks everyone, as a corrado owner, and not a passat fan, i am still not down with all the b5 lingo. I would love for you guys to upload a few pics in the forum and a bio for our gallery. You guys said you wanted to see a few passats in there. We do have vw aproval for the logo, and new parts a being posted every week, check back for updates, thanks for the support guys. We hope to soon be a well knowen volkswagen site. We are making our dabue at waterfest this summer. As far as my spelling goes, i am dyslexic, and i cant spell very well, there is no spell check on the program i use.

dave
p.s. i just scrolled through this site, and i dont want to sound negitive, but it did not have alot of content. the sales was a link to tire rack, and then there was the members. Dont get me wrong you guys have a masave forum, which i envy compleatly, but i just thoght ther would be more content

Well... it sounds like you have the wrong idea about us... Club :b5: is just that... a club. The only sales we have are a few shirts and soon (hopefully) some stickers. As for the forum, I think that's really all there is to see on B5... thats why we're here. In reference to spelling, don't worry about it, some people on here are just spelling Nazi's. Nice site, look forward to seeing some cool cars on there in the future :thumbup:
