I'm sorry to report that my beloved Passat is history :cry: . Some kook in a Land Rover blew a red light at around 40mph and broadsided me :evil: . In her last noble testament to her superb quality...my whip blew both side airbags and protected me and my passenger from any serious injury. Thankfully my "real" rims/tires were safely in my basement, but it's doubtful whether I can recover many of my other mods (e.g. suspension, DV, swaybar).

Anyway, I replaced her with a 4x4 Dodge Ram and am sad i'll no longer have the pleasure of driving this great car.

Thanks to all of you ClubB5'ers who have helped me out along the way. Especially the crew from B5ONE. They've been great to me.


Can't tell from the pics, but the rear end is actually a bit crumpled too.



I do have some parts I will be selling once I figure out prices/etc. I'll do it in Classifieds.

Thanks everyone! :beer:

No Ty, I went to get the Wett chip about the same time you did.

From the looks of your car though is it totaled?

:eek:h: man that sucks!

So how did you decide to go from the luxury of the Passat to a truck?

Well....i'm in danger of losing my license from all the damn speeding tickets i've gotten with the Passat :suspicio: , and besides, i'm moving to Northern Vermont in a few months so the 4x4 will come in handy! 8)
