Yesterday, I parted with my long time Passat wagon. It was a fun car for many years, but the general decline in replacement part quality and availability drove my decision.
The new owner, Matt Whitbread will be able to give the B4V all the attention it will take to keep the car on the road for...
The GTC1549VZ is a great turbocharger. I have 2 of them in use now. But this is the very best price I have ever seen on one.
Pondering the purchase of a 3 year old pre-owned BMW
What are your thoughts about these 2 cars as a long term purchase for a senior couple. I envision this as a replacement for Anita's 2015 Camry when it goes off lease next year. It has to be an automatic. And I know a BMW cost a whole lot...
EDIT: Purchased a GTC1549 on EBay.uk ($275 delivered).
For my TDI Jeep Comanche conversion.
Looking for either a GTC1549VZ turbo from a 170/177 hp VW/Audi OR
GTD1752VRK from a 190 hp BMW 2.0 diesel.
Good, used unit preferred ... I am cheap, what can I say.
My search for an original diesel Jeep Comanche started 6 or 7 years ago. After a couple of conversations with the California DMV and BAR about attempting to do a diesel conversion on my 1991 Jeep Comanche I quickly figured out that the best thing for me was to find a real 1986 or 87 original MJ...
Doing a Cherokee TDI swap with an AHU. Does anyone know where I can get a set of motor monunts? Because of block differences, the ALH/BEW kit from Canadian Electric will not bolt up. Looking for an alternative source. Any leads? Thanks,
This article in the Wall Street Journal says the U.S. Dept of Justice has found criminal evidence in the DieselGate scandal. VW lawyers are said to be cooperating to reach a resolution.
I need to find a part number and source for the plastic split rivets used to hold the rear plastic panel on the B4V tail gate. Understand the same split rivet is used to hold the sedan trunk liner in place.
Here is an Ebay link to the black colored version of the part...
The rear bumper cover has a small 4 x 4 inch cover for a factory shipping hook/tie down on the right hand side of the main bumper cover.
The paint shop did not save the one from my old bumper and my factory new bumper did not come with that small part (or the shop lost it too).
White would be...
Finally got the car back from the paint shop on Friday, 3/18/16. Here are a few pictures of the results:
Rear view. Still missing name badges and part of the bumper cover:
Front view. Grill was repainted flat black.
This offers a closer view of the door fit.
Looked for the stock paint code on my wagon today and came up with nothing when I drove to the paint shop and looked under the rear carpet and in the spare tire well.
So I need some help please. What is the stock white color for the 96 Passat?
On line I find references to a 96 VW color called...
Volkswagen's CEO says "We didn't lie" at the Detroit auto show.
Sounds to me like VW has been talking to a Criminal Defense Attorney.
Partial quote from NPR interview:

We all complain about cheap C.R.A.P. parts and say we "wish" decent parts were available.
Recently, one member has responded by offering a billet aluminum coolant flange to replace the cheap, plastic coolant flange many of us have replaced more than one time.
To me, this is a great chance to...
Anyone here interested in putting together a bid to host the 2016 TDIFest in Southern California?
It will take a group of 5-7 committed volunteers to put a successful bid package together. Getting that planning group of workers together is the most important step. So, if you are interesting...
I am planning my cross country trip to this year's TDIFest. My first stop will be the Detroit area to have my GTC1549 turbo installed by Matt Whitberead. To arrive at the appointed time I am going to have to drive about 2400 miles in just over 2.5 days. So that means an average speed of about...
