      Hello everyone, I am the proud new owner of a completely stock Indigo Blue/beige leather 2003 Passat W8 6-speed. I previously owned two VWs - a black/tan 1999 Jetta VR6 that I bought in 2001 and a sky blue/black 1969 Beetle I owned in high school in the early 80s.

      18. BlueSTAR VW A2DP enabled bluetooth module for analog OnStar (this converted my dead OnStar system peripherals into a hands-free bluetooth interface with my iPhone, A2DP streams playlists from my iTunes or apps like Pandora One through wireless connection)

      28. W8 FIS Cluster Swap (have to send to get VIN and ECU info transplanted from OE cluster next month)
      29. Genuine Audi TT Caliper Carriers (to install A8 brake rotors with brake servicing next month)
        * new since January 2012.

      Some maintenance changes that have refreshed her insides and outsides a bit along the way:
      1. Polished headlights to like brand new crystal clear again (3M Restoration Kit)
      2. Removed the silly dealer installed pinstripe
      3. Re-shod the OE Vancouver 16x7s in 205/55R-16 Dunlop SP Sport Signature Tires (getting restored and refinished to like new, will henceforth be my winter shoes)

      Some stuff I already have that I am waiting for a sunny day to do:

      2. Custom LED tails for B5.5 sedans and wagons, and B5 sedans, interesteds list assembling on PassatWorld (hi-flux LEDs on my bench as of 29 March 2012 for prototype production)

      I'm willing to bet you won't see another W8 with these wheels, they required some good modification to fit without spacers. I'm get better pics soon.

      Hello all,

      I want to change ATF. I really appreciate if you specifically answer the following questions.
      Car is 1.8t, 1998, SW, 249.000 miles.
      Transmission shifts nice, although rarely downshifts are harder.

      1-) FEBI ATF versus PENTOSIN?

      I have searched a lot about the two brands. The cheapest Pentosin G 052 162 A2 is 15.00$ at O'Reilly Atlanta. Febi G 052 162 A2 is 13$ online order shipping included.
      Considering it will take around 7 quarts, which brand is preferable?.
      (Then there is the German brand from Blaupart. http://www.blauparts.com/proddetail.asp?prod=F2A1007-F

      2-) ATF IN TORQUE CONVERTER?

      I want to remove the entire fluid from the transmission. How am I going to drain the ATF in torque converter? If I did this, how much more ATF do I need besides 6 QT?

      And for those asking about camber and adjustable control arms, here is how much camber you get with stock control arms.

      07-18-2012 03:46 AM #204
      Hey guys . I'm a newbie here at the forums so please be patient with me if I do anything considered as wrong.

      I thought I would share some pics on my black beauty

      Info :

      Date of birth : 2000
      Colour : Black pearlescent
      Engine : 2.8 V6 "30V"
      Complete modellname : VW Passat 2.8 V6 4-motion

      Exterior styling : Coilovers (not that low though, we got terrible roads in sweden tbh), painted all the details in the same black pearl as the car "emblems, strips etc". Clearglass aftermarket headlights + indicators, black LED rearlights (rearlights + indicators covered with flyeyes kit black 1). And atm its rolling on 18" ASA Prime, planning on getting Dotz Hanzo 19" though.

      Pics :











      Hopefully I will get some performance upgrades going soon, PES G2, cold air intake, exhaust etc.

      Feel free to add comments, both positive and negative are welcome

      Crazy that I said something about these wheels on the Black W8 and the next day I seen it in person at EuroWerks 6 yestarday. Looks nice man and the paint looks super clean

      Thanks man. I love the car, but the black paint can be a bear to keep looking fresh, but that's because I'm pretty picky. Eurowerks was a blast. We should be posting up our video and photos by the end of the weekend hopefully (been on vacation and such).

      very nice bro. what kind of modification did you have to do to make them fit well?
      Had to grind down the brake calipers quite a bit. (W8s use HP2 calipers, which are notorious for interfering with wheel fitment).
