      In North America the 3.6 CC and B6 Passat had the 09M 6-speed Aisin automatic. US B7 (a.k.a. NMS) with the 3.6 has the 6-speed DSG.

      I use the paddles in my B6 when driving in the mountains, and to...

      The light will go off once things warm up and you've driven a bit. I don't think I've heard of anyone having to replace theirs due to old age in a B6 yet.

      This site has a ton of great factory service manual PDFs, but they don't allow you to link directly to the PDFs. So go here:

      This thread took an awesome turn. My grandfather built his own hi-fi systems in the '50s and '60s and knew all about this stuff and he'd always be trying to teach me about it when I was about 8. I...

      QFT. They're definitely still a business but they aren't publicly drooling at the prospect of firing all their drivers as soon as driverless cars are viable.

      I believe that's the warm air intake--there's a flap in the air box that opens in cold temps to pull warm air from the engine bay into the intake and help the engine warm up more quickly.

      Ah, right you are, I was looking for it on the bottom of the stalk for some reason.

      So the 9W7/RNS-510/Red MFD combo works for streaming A2DP audio and phone audio to the stereo over bluetooth,...

      Don't think he's got ACC--I don't see the radar unit in the front grille and I don't see the range adjustment dial on the bottom of the cruise control stalk. Still, it's a sweet ass vehicle.

      Well the first problem is that it looks like your new control module needs to be coded to work with your car. This article will help--it also has info on the 02233 code:

      No sympathy at all. This is what happened to my cousin when a minivan shed a load of ice and snow from its roof at highway speeds. She had to turn around and drive 40 miles home and call a rental car...

      In the US they became standard in 2010 IIRC. You do have to drop (but not totally remove) the headliner to access the mounting bolts. I'm still curious how PlastiDip would hold on on them.

      They do have the sweet sweet 3.6 goodness but they are a different beast than the R32. The power/weight ratio is about the same as in the MkV R32 (heavier car, but more power), but the wheelbase is...

      Got one now. Sure, it likes gas, but otherwise it's everything I could ask for. IIRC the twin-turbo 3.0 VR6 is pretty much guaranteed for VW's upcoming 7-seat crossover. Too bad Jamie doesn't post...

      AWD sounds like it's a Haldex system tuned for 50/50 at low speeds, which I don't get. The whole idea of Haldex is that it's (fuel and tire saving) FWD until slipping occurs. You're not telling me...
