    Satin or wood trim. Which do you prefer?

    So, call me old man, but I just bought a set of wood panels off eBay from a salvage SEL. Haven't arrived yet and may be obvious when they do, but how is the console section attached? I can pull on the dash stuff and it pops off but I can't see if the console is the same way. So, any of you...

    1997 Passat TDI for sale in NC

    Thank you sir, I will pm my number to the (many!) others who have responded and go from there.

    I can't seem to post a pic to the forum, but here is a link to some photos when we went to pick it up http://www.flickr.com/photos/rkallas/sets/72157627899441357/with/6300391663/ Car was kind of in an awkward spot, so not the greatest photos. Oh well, will crop them later.

    1997 Passat TDI for sale in NC

    Hmm.... Try this. Here is a pic of the car while we were at the dealership. http://www.flickr.com/photos/rkallas/6300911906/in/set-72157627899441357 Cleans up a bit better, but we drove it through the rain that morning. You can see the paint falling off the front bumper and hood at least.

    I've stalled mine a few times, but only because I'm not used to the hill holder. That is a strange (but I do admit handy) feature. As far as availability, this one is not for sale...
