Hi guys!!!

I'm new to this forum...just joined actually. I live in Hong Kong and on my third Passat now. Used to own two VR6 Passat B4s and had just obtained a 2000 1.8T Passat(B5) Variant (Stationwagon) earlier this year.

Looking forward to learning / knowing you all!

Hi, I just bought a 98 passat, I find it really very rare in HongKong! So it is difficult to find a garage to do maintenance. After a few days driving, I think B5 is a good car, especially the 1.8T engine, it's quite smooth. I am happy to share experience with you all here later....

Dah Chong Hong is the sole agent for VW/Audi so they can perform the maintenance.
If cost is an issue you can always try Challenger in Kwun Tong.

I noticed that your headlights look like they're one piece, I guess that's what "integrated turn signals" means. Are those the same ones you can find on eBay for less than the FKs?

I know some OEM Chinese parts don't fit US Passats. I wonder how these lights will do. Did you change out the bulbs in the Halos or did they come with that whitish-blue look?

Do you have stubby side mirrors on both sides?

Your car is AMAZING. :thumbup:

B6 is a nice car that I love too.
Yes, the B6 forum section is a good place for you to hang around.
Maybe one day I'll get a B6 wagon with you too.

I know official VW service centers selling vw parts to public is prohibited .
Sorry that I'm not famillair with beijing which is very far away from Hong Kong.
There may be some parts shop but beware of fake parts which can be bought everywhere. I suggest you to ask this question locally when you arrive.
Goodluck and have a nice trip.
