What have you done to your Passat this past year? Here's my list (all DIY).
well- almost traded her in for a 2002 Audi avant--but decided against it afterwards.
- fixed ABS module ($230.00)
- New tires (yoko yk520)
-WEt Okole front seat covers (two tone)

soon: tranny fluid service, new timing belt (3rd), and major tune up...

looking to become an owner

I know I'll be getting a passat wagon within the next few months and I am just trying to decide on what i should be hunting for 1.8t or 2.8 vr6; 5spd or tip? any input on maintenance as this will likely be the determining factor.

vwpoorboy, go for a 1.8T 4-mo. And it's a V6, not a VR6.

Just bought my W8 5 weeks ago as a CPO and have only driven about 1200 miles, so I haven't had to do much.
So far:
Enabled/locked Tiptronic sport mode with VAG-COM
Chrome mirror housings
Clear front marker lights

Need/plan to do (by the end of the year):
IceLink Plus (sitting in the garage, trying to find trunk CD changer cable to install)
K&N panel filter (sitting in the garage, waiting to install this fall)
Change spark plugs (plan to install NGK Iridium at next service)
Drain and fill ATF (don't think it's ever been done, will have indy shop do at next service)
Shark Fin antenna

I know, not much in the way of mods, but I'm taking it slow. I'm really enjoying the car for now. :)

for your entertainment...
