    2005 B5.5 Passat Wagon TDI 5 Speed FHN - For Sale, Needs work.

    Wow I didnt think I would see this car again. Im the Canadian owner who took it to Kansas City for the 5 speed conversion! The car is worth more than asking price in parts. If I could figure out how to get it back I probably would consider buying it.

    2005 VW Passat B5.5V MANUAL trans - MB

    UPDATE: I finally was able to reach the customs here in Pembina, ND. Evidently the new buyer can import the car into the U.S. and will not have to go through a registered importer because the letter of conformance specifies the Passat passes FMVSS and EPA in all states but California. It is...

    2005 VW Passat B5.5V MANUAL trans - MB

    If I export the car as the end user the letter of conformance is all that is required. I'm wondering if the individual that exported the Golf moved south WITH the vehicle? That bypasses the issues with an owner from the U.S. exporting the car under form 3 for resale. There's so many departments...

    Update: Letter of conformance was easy to get. If I was moving to the U.S. the car is ready for export BUT because the car is being exported for the purpose of selling I think there's another step required. The Passau passed all FMVSS except cluster but it will be compliant with a sticker saying...

    Hi. Thanks for the interest. It's tentatively sold and I'm working through the paperwork to export the car at the moment. I'm not sure what the export costs will be until I can contact a registered importer (RI) but I don't anticipate it costing a ton.

    Clutch options for the b5.5

    I have about 20K miles on my Clutchmasters FX25 and Whitbread 32lb flywheel. Engagement is still a bit choppy when going into 1st. I've learned to just live with it. The car has VERY smooth engagement otherwise. Mine chatters just a bit on idle with the clutch out but it's got much quieter over...

    2005 VW Passat B5.5V MANUAL trans - MB

    OK after doing some very brief research unless going through a registered importer (and depending on state) it could be a very long process...which is why I'm assuming U.S. buyers wouldn't want to go through. https://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=401075 There is no U.S. compliant...

    2005 VW Passat B5.5V MANUAL trans - MB

    Hi MaroonB4...I'm looking into the importing of this car into the U.S. right now. It's identical to the U.S. versions and I thought there was an EPA compliant sticker on it but I can't find it...I'll let you know what I find out.

    Price drop to $6500USD. Any feedback guys? Is it the northern climate? Importing from Canada that's scaring potential buyers?
