    My '08 Passat 2.0T

    Thanks! The B6 (2006-2010) Passat was made in Germany. The new B7 (2010+) are made in Tennesee for N. America only. The turbo motor is no longer an option and they are not as sporty. Anyone have insight on the 9th gen Accord? I've been searching and reading random reviews - all very positive so...

    My '08 Passat 2.0T

    Haven't logged in to this forum in awhile. 10/20/11: I traded in my '00 Accord EX for this, then added coil-overs and 18's: Great car but at only 45,000 miles it's showing a tendency to rust in random locations. My 6GA went through many tough winters and had not one spot of rust. Now I'm...

    Where are all the Starcraft Fans

    I wasted my summers of '98 and '99 .. and probably '00 playing SC/brood wars. I haven't really played since the days of dial-up. I'll buy SC2 just because it'll be awesome ;) Lately Bioware rules my PC gaming world - Dragon Age:Origins and Mass Effect 2 are both killer games. I'm kinda into the...

    fothermucker's extremely bland '00 EX

    It was buffed with a cordless drill and some kind of headlight/plastic polish, I forget the brand. They are still not perfect, but look much better. LOL thanks for the comments guys. I didn't expect any, just wanted to update my ride thread.

    fothermucker's extremely bland '00 EX

    I've decided this car is just going to be a "beater." I am cheaping out - no coilovers, no drop, no fancy wheels. Just replacing whatever needs to be with whatever good deal I can find. I'd rather spend the money on my SS. I've some bills to pay off before I go crazy - patience is hard to come...

    Your job sounds like a walk in the park. Especially at a time when people can't find work at all.

    help with oil consumption

    Since my original reply I've had the timing belt and water pump service done, had the valves adjusted, replaced all other belts, cleaned IACV and intake. Also replaced valve cover, IACV, intake and throttle body gaskets. My last oil and filter change was 8/29/09 and have since put ~1100 miles...

    Creaking/rattling noise coming from headliner

    When my car is in motion I can hear a slight creak/rattle coming from what seems like the dome light. It's driving me insane. It doesn't seem to be the sunroof blind. I've tapped my fingers all around to see if I can get it to make the same noise but no dice. Has anyone else run into this...

    DIY SCS Service Connector and SRS Reset

    I did this procedure w/ a paper clip snapped in 2 and it worked. So if the light stays off then I can hope there's no issues with the airbag?

    wheels after lowering

    Personally don't care for wheels that say "Hey! Look at these crazy wheels!" They should compliment the car, not distract from it.
