    FS: 2005 Passat Wagon TDI -MD

    Thanks folks, the new owner just pulled away in her. I ended up having the new hood and bumper painted and put on. re: the glovebox, im fairly certain they all had it stock as Oilhammer said. I'm going to miss her :sniffle: I did order a new X5 35d though. Pretty excited about that.

    Did B5 come with manual trans and or 4 motion in USA?

    I know, what a crock. You can get the B5 in 4-motion or 5 speed (not sure about both in one), but you can't get a B5 TDI. You can get a B5.5 with a TDI, but no TDI +5 speed or TDI + 4 motion. Naturally the dream is TDI + 5 speed + 4 Motion = happy man

    Floor Mats.... Got a question or 2..

    I do not recommend the Weather Tech mats that are supposed to fit the B5.5. I got a set and they slid all over the place. They fit better in my Jeep...haha I have the Sams Club special (like 20 bucks for four) and they are great thus far (about a year). They show no wear P.S- CT native as well.

    Subaru Diesel

    The wifeys father works for Subie corporate in NJ. Says they pushed back production for US due to auto trans mating issues. Apparently torque was a factor. Diesel Subies are selling like hotcakes in Europe.

    No boost

    i lost my turbo to intercooler cross connect hose and that was what was happening to me. Turns out that a piece of plastic wire conduit was chafing the boost charge line and wore a hole in it. This is the silicone hose off the turbo to the cross connect, not the cross connect. I would check...
