SO, to make a long story short, i have left my nice little office job to work at a junkyard that is going through a major reconstruction, and ive been a passat lover for years and a member of the forum for some time now. Just wanted to reach out to forum members to let you know we have probably 50 passats out in the yard. Both wagons and sedans, any item you guys think you need, just shoot me a message or comment on the thread and ill see what i have for you.

thanks fellas.

no dice on the red fenders unfortunately...

no dice on any W8's in the yard currently..

is the K03 turbo a factory installed option? we have a million 1.8's out there with blown motors, i can find the lowest mileage vehicle and get one off for you. PM me.

i wish we had a couple W8's out here.. but let me ask you this, where do you think the best place to find some chrome roof rails from a W8? ive been looking with no such luck.
I have 2 pairs of them :D, I'm saving one set for my wagon but I'd let the other one go. It is missing 2 of the plastic end pieces but they are available on-line for about $20 per piece. PM me if you're interested and we can go from there.

Sorry I couldn't resist letting that one slip by.

DUH. Yeah that would be helpful wouldn't it. You can slap me upside the head anytime.

Actually, let be more specific as I don't need the whole thing.
I'm looking for the piece of "wood grain" plastic cover strip that snaps onto the cup holder in the rear of the center console.


And...

What about a plastic grab handle for the drivers side rear door in BLACK.
I just took mine apart and the handle has crack from end to the other making it kind of dicey when pulling the car door shut.

Oh, and if you see any G2 superchargers left on a V6 just laying around, you know who to call.

I know it's a strange request, but one of the members here a while back found a G2 kit on a totaled out Passat laying in a salvage yard.

Interested in bottom cushion if the black leather cover around it is in really superb condition (most likely passenger side). My car is a '99, so B5 or B5.5 chassis should work.

ISO some window weather strips that go on the left/right of the windshield. Mine were destroyed when Safelite replaced my windshield (long story). The pic was them just trying to take them out.
