      Can't see the pictures?

      What did the blockage consist of?

      How did you get your hands on a 3.2/DSG in Florida? The US only got 3.6/09M auto transmission. Is this imported from elsewhere?

      Mine don't do that--most of the water is diverted by the seal.

      IIHS has nothing to do with any government, it's an insurance industry trade group. You're thinking of the NHTSA in the US.

      Can you swap the positions of the two sensors behind the grille to see if the problem follows the sensor? That will help you narrow down whether it's a sensor problem or a wiring problem.

      Just follow the time (every six months or whatever) instead of the miles (every 5000mi or whatever) in your maintenance schedule and you'll be fine. Like you said an 8 mile drive should get the car...

      My stock pads are pretty grabby and squeal when it's cold out. OP, doesn't sound like there's anything wrong with your car but you could investigate different brake pad options if these aren't to...

      My '08 4motion has the same things. If you can't pull it any further to engage the retraction mechanism, you'll probably need to take the door panel off and work on it outside of the car. Here's a...

      Semi-common problem. The cable that connects the outside handle to the lock mechanism has come out of its groove. Slamming the door hard can sometimes get it back where it's supposed to be; if that...

      I remember reading that too, and that LED tails will be an option once the local (Mexico) supplier gets up and running.

      They do, but not in a compact transverse package. A 3.0T VR6 would go in MQB-based cars. I imagine it would fit in everything from a Golf to the new mid sized crossover.

      IIRC they're developing a 3.0 liter VR6 with a turbocharger for use in the new midsized SUV and larger sedans. It would go in places where the 4.2 V8 would be used currently.

      The latest VR6s are...

      I'm Devin, this is my Passat

      Those new wheels look perfect. I dig the overhead shot too, it's not a view you get to see often and brings out some of the subtle contours of the B6 wagon's shape.

      Sounds like you're looking for a 2008.5-2010 2.0T with the TSI (also known as TFSI) engine. It replaced the FSI 2.0T used in 2006-2008.

      FSI, TSI, and TFSI are marketing acronyms for direct...

      The seats in the "Lux" photo above are real lather, but they are the Sport package seats, not the Lux seats. Lux seats look the same as base seats but are real leather with no perforations, as...

      Well now that sounds like the main switch in the overhead console is the one that's bad. Fortunately it's much easier to get to. IIRC you first pry the cover off the portion at the back, and then...
