      I'm sure this will be a slow moving thread, but what the hell I think we need one.


      Even though it wasn't today, I'll start....

      Flushed and bled the whole brake system with new blue stuff.

      It's a good idea to have a thread separately for the Quantum and older Passats,
      although not many of those are around... however I agree w/ the OP, it might
      move slowly... BTW OP - fix them photos....

      Well, actually you do....It was a Passat in Europe and a Santana in S. America and Asia. B2 platform.

      Today, I wish I'd kept mine instead of junking it in 2002

      Sorry, I do not consider mine a passat. I do not click on anything in this forum unless it has "Quantum" or "QSW" in the title.

      Oh and today I drove it to work and back.
      Yesterday I drove it across the whole state and back.

      Yours is a Passat. It's a type 32B. Because in Germany they were named Passat from Dasher over Quantum up to the current ones. I am from Germany and I own 4 of them. 1 sedan, 2 hatchback and 1 wagon.

      But you are right not to click on anything here unless it has Quantum or QSW in the title, because there are much too little of them here in the forum.

      Did you already have a look on the forum of our german club for all Passat (and Dasher, Quantum, Santana) models of the first two generations?

      I hope to see more Quantum pics and reports here.

      I'm with Koeln. While yes we may technically have a Passat I still pretty much only click on stuff that has Quantum or QSW in the title.

      I don't want this thread to turn into a pissing match as to what kind of car we're actually talking about. Most of the cars in this Passat groups are not the Quantum as named here in the U.S. so I thus created this separate thread just for the older (and unique) Passats/Quantums.

      Let just keep the thread on topic if we could. It seems to work in other similar threads.


    13. 08-03-2008 08:21 PM #13
      Yes, sorry don't mean to sound rude, it does become a passat or santana for a while when searching on international ebays. But on here it will stay a Quantum to conserve clicks.

      Today I re-aimed my headlights. I bought them recently and hadn't driven in true darkness yet. While coming home from the beach the other night I found they were aimed very low, and with the beam cutoff I not only couldn't see well but looked like quite a tool.

      Yes, of course. And most of all the american name Quantum makes it easier to differentiate the models.

      Passat-Kartei-Deutschland (PKD) is only about the models until '88 (Dasher and Quantum).

      Quantum are very much looked for under enthusiasts in Germany. Unfortenutely I crashed mine ('85 Quantum GL5 fuel injection sedan) last October. A truck to the left and a barrier to the right. I hit both.

      Fortunately a friend of mine bought it, so he will live on.

      Pics of my collection will follow, as posting/linking does not work yet.

      Pulled half of the bad brake line on my 84 QTD Wagon the other night and will try to get the rest out and put in the new one if it stops raining! Then it's off to the power steering pump and lines! Then brakes up front and who knows from there...maybe straight to the auction block...

      nope, seadog is to the left of the shot. that's the fort andross mill in the background.


      back on topic, I discovered my fuel pressure regulator is leaking (vacuum hose was soaked after about 1min of run time) anyone got one kickin' around? (not even registered or been driven yet and the list of parts I need keeps growing... yeesh)

      I live in TN, and am fron CT. Last summer and this past summer was spent on Bailey Island. I didn't even see where you were from, but I recognized the mill in the background. Then I saw Topsham, and immediately knew.

      I love Maine. Seadog's ok, but I've had better Maine beer.

      One thing I noticed there: LOTS of old VWs. That may be the reason I like Maine so much.

      ordered some KYB GR2 front struts, sturt mounts bump stops etc and dropped it off @ my mechanic's shop last night. Hopefully it'll be at daily driver status in a week or so.


      On Seadog, you're right, i don't drink their beer. blech (getting sick after eating there may have something to do with it...)
