    Brake Upgrades

    I have a 2015 Passat with 2008 R32/Paasat V6 4MO front 345 rotors/calipers/caliper stands/brake lines (also running the rear R32 calipers/stands/rotors and lines). To be honest, looking for a more sexy caliper and saw this at Darkside...

    GTD1449vz on CR150 question

    Yeah, I was seriously considering one of the "smaller" turbos as an upgrade. Thanks! PS, didn't you go with a bigger turbo than the 2260? Are you using a 240hp biturbo UK 2.0L (with a single turbo) for the better head flow?

    GTD1449vz on CR150 question

    According to DS website info. If EA288 injectors are only good to support 260hp and they suggest a 2260 for upwards of 300hp (I know CP3 and injectors are needed to get there). What would a 2056 with stock injectors and an Xman CP3 upgrade get me on a US spec EA288 in a '15 Passat? Edit: or even...

    Review of plug and play LED upgrades: low beam (LasFit H7 G2 Pro) and High Beam (LasFit VW-01)

    I HAD the DeAuto low beam flashed all the time. From MY POV, I liked them! >>>a s I could see.....they negated my high beams useless as they occupied the same pattern the HB's would have. I now have their foglight LEDs which turned my fogs into driving lights....get flashed every now...

    2015 Passat Fuel Door Issues.

    I'll be darn....removed door/filler splash assembly...plunger box has a wire to it...***? Thought it was a simple mechanical mechanism....looked and felt like it. Why is there a motor? Is there a secret release? Can anyone give insight as to how to access where the wire goes? From filler opening...

    2015 Passat Fuel Door Issues.

    Motor?? It's not electric interior release. You push door to open, you push door to close. It's a mechanical plastic plunger with a "T" that rotates a 1/4 turn with each push...door closed, you push and T rotates and door opens. Door open, you push door to close and T rotates again.
