Hello Passat World! I am a long time Vortexer but I usually trolled this site for some info. I own an 06 B6 Graphite Blue APR turbo back exhaust, APR Stage II tuning, Forge intake, clear corners, tint, and a head unit from an 08 B6 too
I purchased my lovely ride in January 09 for next to nothing with 30,000 miles on it. The longest I have owned any car at the ripe age of 26. My wife is looking at switching from Hyundai :banghead: to a new Tiguan :lol:
The issues I have had with the car are all of the TSBs. Steering column, A/C, Cam follower fail, Airbag stuff, and the last thing was my head unit. Jammed up last year so I had been on XM and FM for a year but purchased a newer one from an 08 Passat from eBay. I own a Vag Com cable so anyone in the Capital District that needs use of one, PM me free of charge. I love to help out my fellow Dubbers in any way possible. I love my car even more now with the APR tune. Saw my MPG go from 28 to 36. I squeezed 650 miles out of one tank running from Albany to Cape May, NJ doing the speed limit! Very tough in that car. I have been toying with the thought of switching to a Golf R or an Audi TT/A5 Cabriolet. Just can't let my baby go.
Anyway great site, great posts! Let's ROCK!
