      Correct, color temp has nothing to do with heat, just light color and thus light output -- you won't get nearly as much output at the normal 35 watts from a 6000K xenon bulb as with 4150K (OEM) or...

      That totally sucks...maybe call VWOA again...sometimes it all depends on who you get on the other end.

      This was a voluntary recall on VW's part, as opposed to a government-mandated safety recall. Unfortunately, voluntary recalls can and do expire.

      FWIW VCDS also works with 64-bit Windows. Definitely worth a purchase if keeping the car long term. And I agree, sounds like a ballast issue.

      They're parking lights when your headlights are on. Regulations in the US (at least) require parking lights to be amber or white. In the newest Passat, they double as turn signals, which have to be...

      I just installed the Osram Cool Blue Intense D1S HIDs, $124 per bulb -- oh yes, expensive, but AWEWOME...great color and light output. Set for another 7 years (presumably...hopefully) and worth...

      I get the rattling too for a second or three and I have the VR6, but a chain like yours...totally normal. Don't know about the WOO you're hearing though.

      It's the oil pump bolt. On some VR6 engines from '06 and '07 it backs out, oil leaks and the engine seizes. Fixed for '08. It's not all VR6's from those years but enough to raise some hackles and...

      I'd save up a little more and get an '08. The '06-'07 VR6 engines have a potential oil bolt problem which was fixed for model year 2008, as was the peeling interior issues which affected some...

      I have an '08 fully loaded sedan, and I share your sentiments about that Passat vintage. Best of luck with your new ride.

      I have turned in two other VW's under lease. My advice is to have the inspection and see what they say. In other words, do not replace tires or anything else unless they bring it up.

      It wasn't covered under warranty until there was a voluntary recall. VW wound up issuing some refunds for the work done prior. It's expensive too, around $1800.

      I think it was a voluntary recall and I think it expired last year.

      Brake fluid change every two years, regardless of mileage. Fluid gets condensation in it over time.
