    New VW Radio with AUX

    Good evening sir. If you currently have the stock AM/FM/CD radio and just looking for an auxiliary plug in, this is what I did. Many years ago I had BestBuy install an Aux port. It is tied to a small FM transmitter mounted out of sight. There is a small rocker button also installed that...

    2005 Pasat Wagon Value?

    Ughhh…...I am currently going through the same decision point. Oilhammer has had the car twice: 2010 to do the balance shaft, steel glow plugs, engine mounts, timing belt, and a few other items and 2017 to do the shocks, cam shaft, timing belt again and other items. I also just put in some Raxle...

    Brake Lights DEAD - 05 Passat

    Ok....thank you very much. I somewhat forgot about all of the electronics under the floor on both side. Add to it, it has only rained here once in south west CO since I got home from overseas in January. So, I definitely didn't think about moisture issues. I will definitely take a look...

    Hi R1 Rider......If you look up a few posts to DanD144, they are havng a GTG, Get-Togetger, in early June.

    Fort Bragg/Fayetteville anyone?

    I live in Carthage area on the West side of post. I have only one diesel option between the 36 miles from home to work; the Kangaroo Gas Station in Vass, NC. It was 3.90 yesterday; the first time I have seen it below 4 in quite awhile out here.

    Fort Bragg/Fayetteville anyone?

    Greatings....and congratulations on your purchase! I am back in NC now; driving my tdi on post. You are right; I have been seeing more and more lately. It sure would be nice if the fuel station splurged and put a diesel fuel tank on post.
