It's the little sensor that is above the power steering cooling hardline in the pic. About the size of a tube of chapstick. Look off on the driver's side of the car for it. The end is open with...

I have no idea where the motor mount comment came from

left field I guess.

Its a leaking shaft seal on the driveshaft. Sometimes they start leaking... sometimes they even fix themselves. If it's dripping (which it appears to be) then it's a bad...

So with it hooked up to a running car with jumpers you dont even get the dash to light up?

Ignition switch? Hook it up with jumpers and test the voltage between your battery terminals, you should be over 13V. If you are over 13V and your dash wont light up its not the battery, its...

Don't you think that an oil analysis is more important than the way the cam looks?

The motor that I was referring to was a 2.8L V6 Passat, not a 1.8t. Previous owner did 10k intervals at the VW dealer and it developed some sludge and the oil analysis came back with higher than...

Can you link me to the "German Syntec"

Im not sure which one you're referring to. Im not even sure which one I picked up at AAP if they are right next to each other.

Are you against M1? I read they had a formula change a few years...

4th. 92,000 with perfect leakdown and compression

It does have a rattle in the headliner though. Drives me nuts! Im going to fix that this summer, it is from a tech monkeying around with the sunroof years ago.

10k change intervals is too long in my experience

I have all oil samples analyzed by Blackstone and the fuel % and iron content really escalates up over 6k miles. Therefore, I change my oil every 4-5k in the 1.8t. Overkill? Perhaps a little, but...

Advance Auto Parts had a special on Castrol synthetic

Don't buy into the hype that ONLY Mobil 1 will work in your car. Advance had a special of five quarts and a filter for $27. You'll need an extra quart for you car, maybe two.

M1 is like...

They "retail" at $999. It would be foolish to actually pay that much.

The guys at Stratmosphere offer excellent customer service. Im ordering a HFC from them on Thursday.

contact dougyfresh on audizine, he's in Hartford

He's been doing some work on the side, if he has the time I would think he'd be a great option. Knows his **** with the B6 too.

+1. 15's kick ass for a cushy ride in winter too!

The next set that I get are going to fit the stock 17s though and probably will be 225, because a lot of the time its not actually snowy in Pittsburgh its just dry and salted... so Id rather have the...

Are you from NorCal or from Pgh?

It's always amazed me how people from across the country can be diehard Steelers fans, but I guess the 1970's created quite the following.

I got to tour the steelers locker room the other day...

I LOVE the cloth seats, leather sucks

The seat heaters get them cooking hot in under two minutes! They do stain pretty easily though, my ex gf put a big coffee stain on both the drivers and passenger seats. One day I'll get it detailed...

remove the housing

I've always found it easiest to remove the housing. There are four torx screws IIRC. Two on top, two down low that you may need a flashlight to see. Remove and slide/jiggle the lamp housing...

The B5 S4 and B5 Passat are the same. I have one of each in my garage

The passat had a bit of foam stuck to it for insulation or something, but otherwise is identical.

I agree that it will be very easy to fit it to the B6, Someone on AZ suggested covering the...

Its luck of the draw

TB is preventative. So is changing oil, brake fluid, coolant, etc. That is the cheap stuff.

Things that are more probable than others:

wheel bearings
coolant flange
CV boots...
