I was just wondering if anyone thought it was still worth putting money into modifying a Passat that is not a manual transmission. I know that it reall ymeans performance upgrades are almost useless but I just wanted to know if there was anyone out there who is or did modify a auto passat??:rolleyes: :confused:

my tip can hang with the 5speed just fine... well at least 1 5speed passat that i know of(both of us are chipped)


you have a v6 though so any perforamcne mods are almost useless unless you buy a supercharger for that thing $$$.. should have went with the 1.8t if you wanted performance ##


and there are lots of modified TIP's around here:thumbup:

I'm very happy with my chipped 1.8T tiptronic -- setting the transmission to "sport mode" and "old shift strategy" helped a lot, too.

If you have the $$$ to supercharge that V6, it'll be a whole different car! :)

Yes, it is Honorable to Modify a Passat with a Tip.

Even moreso if you get Level Ten mods for the Tip.

chips adjust boost, timing, and fueling. on NA cars, only timing and fueling are adjusted. they give only minor gains if you have a v6.

sure it is...:thumbup:

but dumping thousands of $$$ on mods that exceed the value of the car by multiples is probably not the smartest thing in the world. i'd start with a better platform :)
