Hey, about a month ago I bought a 2003 VW Passat GLX 2.8L V6 I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on upgrades and where to find them that I could buy?

Thanks

I did the 2003 GLX 4Motion mod as follows:
EvoMS intake (270.00)
GIAC chip (300.00)
Unorthodox Racing Under Drive Pulleys (400.00)
Remus rear mufflers (4Motion, of course)
Bosch Platinum +4 plugs (not much money on that one - 6.00 each?)
Was going to get Tip locked in Sports Mode, but never got around to it.
People will suggest PES Supercharger, but you are talking 4,000.00 (290bhp).
Good luck, and welcome to PW!

I wouldn't put the money in to it if I had to do it again.
Especially since I traded it in a month ago on a W8.
But the "mod-bug" lives on: GIAC flashloader with 91-93 octane program, stock program, and 100+ octane race program - and Tip locked in Sports Mode.

Check out the W8 console, nice little mod at just over 100$
Evolution sports has it for $110

Wheels...nothing perks a car up like some nice shiney Alloys!

Keskin makes some real nice wheels...(even though I rock BBS)

Welcome. I have an 04 GLX FWD Sedan with tiptronic, and really like how the aftermarket koni sport kit suspension improved the driving experience. Next up is tires and sport mode for the tip. Enjoy!
