    FS: 2004 Passat TDI GLS Wagon 228k - BSM, "new" trans

    I've decided to drop it to $7500 - surely one of the most aggressively priced 04 Passat's with the BSM mod, only 70k miles on the trans, etc.

    FS: 2004 Passat TDI GLS Wagon 228k - BSM, "new" trans

    I would prefer not to drag biodiesel into this thread, because the forum is generally unfriendly to alternative fuels. There is a long thread about me using B100 in a 2009 Jetta TDI. I wound up with a CEL and the dealer blamed biodiesel. I posted the diag logs on here and the consensus was that...

    FS: 2004 Passat TDI Wagon + BSM + timing + trans swap = $12,000

    thanks, that means a lot! I built it myself, and spent months planning it. I stole various ideas from neighbors, created a design, bought the wood, had help from family to sink the posts, and spent a few weekends doing it. Spent about $1000 in materials instead of $4000 paying a fence company...

    My A3 TDI European Delivery Story

    Can you tell us how much you saved by using the ED option, and how much your trip cost? I was considering getting the BMW 335d a couple of years ago and it was going to save us almost $4k, more than enough for the trip. The business deal I was working on fell through, so I didn't get the car...

    Austin Biodiesel

    I would say not to buy a TDI for B5! Dirty diesel distributors like Johnson Oil only offer it sporadically, so you'll never be sure you can get it. B5 meets the technical specification for diesel itself, so all diesel could be B5 and not be labeled at the pump. This is different from gasoline...

    Advice needed about 2004 Passat TDI with bad trans

    BobZ - the glow plug issue was unresolved. These vehicles have a known problem with the ceramic plugs and the long term solution is to replace with steel plugs and reflash the ECU; however, some of them get stuck or break on the way out, so there is some risk. I have been told by most to just...

    Advice needed about 2004 Passat TDI with bad trans

    Two things about putting a used trans in: 1. I'm having trouble convincing my wife that we should spend any money on it at this point. She's in favor of selling it as is (but, of course, has no idea what to offer it for with a bad trans) 2. I was thinking that with the BSM, the crowd that...
