Nice tires! So that's w/ the Eibach springs and dampers? As you can tell, I'm not that knowledgeable about car's suspension, do you have stock struts/shocks on?

Re: TUR-80 - Brisbane, Queensland (landarcht)

Thanks! All the pictures of the Passat are with the Eibach springs and dampers.

The Passat uses dampers, not struts (struts however, are a specific style of damper).

Sheepskin was a custom made job. I got a well known local shop to do the work.

Turbo, thanks for the welcome and your post.

A gtg with you and your colleague would be interesting, I am keen to find out others opinions of their Passats and the local dealers ect. I am away for a couple of weeks and will post again on my return.

I hope this is the right way to reply, I am not that up to speed on using these forums.

See ya around
Dave

Re: TUR-80 - Brisbane, Queensland (NoneRock)

Stay tuned... 2.5" exhaust to be added soon, then back to the dyno for another run. I'd love to see 100kW at the wheels but I think I might be dissapointed.

Re: TUR-80 - Brisbane, Queensland (BOMBGLX)

The EBC rotors are great. No problems with vibration or warping. If anything, the brakes seem to be improving which I assume is because the pads have had a chance to bed themselves in completely. I purchased them from Autospeed's Online Store. Here's the link:
