Spotted indeed - Queen Vic market is a great place to get fruit & veg ... yes, the Passat even does that job :thumbup:
Must say for a moment I was wondering what technology in California takes a week to spot someone in Melbourne ... then I found your original thread in Jan.
Hope all went well with your trip!

Fantastic! I was just walking out of the food court, by that lil donut bus, and saw you driving away just a few meters in front of me!

The trip was a success, and I got a chance to meets some really nice people while there. I also found time to visit GM Holden's Tech Center for a day and see some extremely cool cars!

I found a nice hotel in Southbank and it was walking distance to the CBD. "4 seasons in 1 day" was never truer on that particular Tuesday! The change from 30 C to 18C adn pouring rain was absolutely amazing. Looking forward to coming back soon. Maybe even setup and impromtu gtg.

Good to hear - That's normal Melbourne weather this time of the year although we had an unusual period of 3 days of almost continuous rain that gave us some flooding.
Drop us a line next time you're over.

Hi, welcome to clubb5/Passatworld!
I got my headlights from EBay Germany for around $550AUD shipped
FK have recently released the 3BG version that fit your car. You might also want to look at getting them from the US depending on exchange rates.

You might also want to drop in on the Aussie forum at VWVortex

Hey Charles,
The car has been going well but is undergoing midlife "facelift" ... turbo, FMIC & bits n pieces - enough to keep me interested in her for a few more years :)
As for the "Fahrer Gefunden" shirt lets just say it was the first time I've had something that was too huge to fit!:cry:
Was dissapointing because they looked great and were a decent quality - oh well too sad too bad.
