Hi all,

I am in the market for a new ride and I am particularly interested in buying a 1999, 2000 or '01 B5 Passat 5-Speed V6 or 1.8 preferably with less than 100K. well maintained. I am in OH will be interested in passats in ohio, michigan, illinois or PA.

I have a 99 Nebio Blue with black leather and sunroof. I think I am the second owner. I bought it a year ago with 139k and a broken timing belt. Had the head rebuilt and has 190 PSi on all 4 cylinders. Turbo has 40k on it. Of course new belts, etc. Just turned 150k. I have several goodies on it (angel eyes, GIAC chip, 16" rims, full wood trim, upgradded center consle to 2000 with gauges), but in stock form I want $4500. Could talk about the upgrades. Car runs great and is still very solid.

Don't really want to sell but I have a 99 V6 GLS black with black leather, V6 tiptronic, 119k miles which hasn't sold yet and something needs to go. BTW, I want $6500 for the GLS.

Miles are high but the price is right.

You can have mine for $7,000




1999 Passat GLS 1.8T tiptronic Just turned over 83K miles, the only flaw is a crack in the windshield.

Samco turbo inlet pipe & outlet pipe
ECS N75H race valve
Forge 007 chrome polished diverter
Cold Air Intake

Exhaust:
Fully free flowing side exhaust with stainless steel rectangle tip
ATP race pipe (CAT delete pipe)
Borla free flow muffler

Exterior:
Kamei front winglets
Kamei eyelids
JOM sideskirts
Zender trunklid spoiler
rear window diffuser (can't remember off the top of my head who it's from)

Wheels/Suspension:
18" Staggered wheels with lots of tread left

I may be missing a few things but you get the idea. I have all the
parts to put the car back to stock as well & would be included in the
sale including stock wheels.

These are my 3rd pair since then, I got these for winter & I have some 19" Iforged Monaco 3-piece wheels for the summer if I don't sell the Passat. I want to buy a house in a nicer area which means my mortgage will go up as well, & I want a garage so I am thinking about selling the Passat, I'll still have 2 more VW's left :thumbup:

No wonder you can't find a Passat, try Autotrader instead :poke:
Actually, you may have better luck in the Spring. It seems that more cars go up for sale in the warmer months, at least that's when I found mine. As for not wanting a modded car because it is going to be a DD. There is nothing wrong with a modded DD unless that is just not what you are into. I think many of the cars with mods here in PW are DD's.
You might try this:
http://www.autotraderglobal.com/register.asp

Anyway, Good Luck with your search.

i misspelled autotrader.com , i actually bought my current car from there way back in 2002, so I know the site. but thanks for pointing out. I will start looking for cars as we get more closer to summer. craigslist has some really nice passats. also if anyone here is looking to sell his passat some time in the coming months send me a message it its a 5-speed V6 or well-maintained 1.8 with less than 100 K or around 110 K miles i will be very interested.
