    How many 97 passat tdi were made/sold in the US

    I want to say it costs me like next to nothing for insurance on my passat, I want to say 288/year for liability only. They wouldn't offer me any other coverage. But idk 24 bucks a month to drive a car is a bargain. My 2018 ford flex ecoboost with full coverage 250 comprehensive 500 collision...

    fog lamps

    So my TDI did not come with fog lamps, it has a blank piece of plastic next to the turn signal/parking light, but it has a wiring harness attached to the back side of the blank plastic. Is that wire live? I bought a set of fog lamps + the dummy lens that sits next to it from a junked car out...

    How many 97 passat tdi were made/sold in the US

    Im considering doing the same, both front fenders, hood, 4 doors, both rear quarters and then take it to Maaco for a simple black paint job. I found a car at a local junkyard that I may be able to get all of that from. I just took its rear driverside tail light lens.

    My B4 ProVent install.

    Nice thank you for the info! Does the ECU have to be programmed to take advantage of the intake and the egr delete?

    My B4 ProVent install.

    I looked online you could find your engine code on the vehicle identification sticker inside the owners manual. Luckily mine was in the trunk, popped it open and sure enough it says 1Z. So question about that. Are AHU parts compatible with 1Z? That manifold part says A3/AHU. If I bought it...

    How many 97 passat tdi were made/sold in the US

    Kinda curious as I read that the TDI didn't sell very well in its earlier models and also not many were made for the US market. How many do you think are on the road today in working order? Id assume not too many as mine while mine is not completely rotted with rust it does have some...

    Aftermarket seats

    Just looking for something more comfortable and not making a horrid noise every time you move in the seat or get in/out. I get that the car is 28 years old so things are worn out. This is a daily driver that I use to deliver pizzas, so I am riding in it 6+ hours a day for ~100 - 150 miles a...

    Aftermarket seats

    Hey I was curious if anyone has put aftermarket seats in their a3 Passat? And if so which did you use (pictures if possible) and how difficult was the install. I hate these seats they are old, have no padding left and squeak like hell.

    what are these pipes called

    Is the EGR mandatory or does it vary from state/county? Also mine is already straight piped with no cat (no emissions testing or cat regulations in my county) if I delete the EGR its going to make my exhaust even worse won't it?
