    18" Tire Size Question - For those that know more than I

    I went shopping for new tires yesterday. My Conti's are getting to the point where they will need replacement at 45K miles or so. One is down to 5/32" I generally buy from Discount Tire - Their service is unbeatable and their prices are generally the same. The guy there told me they didn't have...

    WTB: Passat TDI (12-14) Plastic Belly Pan, left front bumper insert, or Spoiler

    Looking to buy a TDI Belly pan from a NMS Passat. My guess is it needs to be from a 2012-2014 with CKRA. Mine was "missing" next time I got under the car after a turbo replacement, my guess is the dealer forgot to put it on. Maybe it's universal between gas and Diesel, I have to check the part...

    Euro switch question

    Does anyone know of the euro switch allows one to turn on the fog lights in the "auto" position? Three times in as many months I've come out to a dead battery in the morning because I have left the light switch in the "On" position because I was using the fog/driving lights. Since the Passat...

Woke up in the middle of the night to a torrential downpour. The wife was woken up too and says something to the effect of "I hope I...

    Dashcam Mounting in NMS?

    So I think I want to order a dashcam. After I see so much stupid crap on the road, having one can only help me in the case of an accident or other incident. That being said, I'm considering ordering one of these: http://goo.gl/ftjSxT - the G1W-C. For $60, it seems like a good unit and the...

    Who knows a lot about window tinting? I've never had a car with tinted windows before, but I want to get my Passat tinted. I have a line on a really good deal to get them done, however they state the tint they use is "non ceramic". Ceramic is available, however it is significantly more...

    PSA: Weird, fast onset vibration? Check your wheels for snow and ice...

    Coming home today my Passat started vibrating badly at highway speeds - approaching 50MPH through 75MPH. I didn't really feel it in the steering wheel but the whole car shook, especially when accelerating. Probably was that way for about 30 miles. Confirming a suspicion, I got it home and the...

    CarNet - Your Thoughts?

    So when we got our '14 Passat TDI it came with a 6 month trial of CarNet. I activated it instead of losing out on the trial. They didn't require a credit card for activation, so I'm out nothing on this whole deal. So far, the service is fairly useless for what I've used it for. I'm pretty handy...

    Anyone have the silicone key covers for the VW Key fob? I see them on Amazon for about 7 bucks. Any feedback on these? I'd like to score a couple of these, however I read that some of them don't fit Kessy fobs. Without busting out the digital micrometer, at first glance the Kessy and non Kessy...

    Remote start effect on Average Consumption

    Anyone else notice that remote start really hurts your trip average consumption? I don't have enough miles to do the math, but does it actually hurt consumption that much or does it just skew the MFA calculation? I realize there's nothing more 'Murican than burning fuel in your unattended...

    Opinion on 18" vs 17" Wheels on NMS

    Anyone have any experience with both wheel sizes? Pros of 18" wheels: Look pretty sweet Cons of 18" wheels: New tires are really expensive Harsher Ride due to lower profile? If you had the option to go with either set of wheels on a new Passat, which would you choose?
