Put dubway sticker
I caught a piece of metal with my right rear tire this morning on the way to work... swapped to spare (full size, thanks vw!) and then stopped at the dealer (Sutliff) on the way in to see if they had what I needed/wanted in stock. Dropping off tomorrow morning for 4 fresh conti procontacts. They have a deal for buy 3, get one for $1 going on right now which was almost exactly the same price as tirerack.com + my local shop.
I guess the good news, if there is any to have is that I needed 4 new tires anyway, barely passed inspection a couple of months ago.
After backing into a concrete pillar some months ago and putting a 3" scratch on the rear panel just aft of the tail light, I got it fixed today, good as new.
Tech at the body shop commented that I must love my car "cuz it's the cleanest passat I've ever seen. "
Drove to CT today (4 hr each way) for these babies:
The fronts are immaculate. The rears have a scratch on passenger side back and dime size hole on drivers side seat.
Question for all you gurus.....My 08 Passat is a Komfort edition and does not have passenger power seat. This set has it. Would the plug be there, or do I need to run power? Also, what size bit is that for the seat bolts? It looks lie Torx possibly. The biggest I have is 50, and is too small.

That made my day! Finally have the Xenons installed.
APR tuning made a huge difference on this old 100000miles engine! Last week had also all injectors cleaned, together with the Intake manifold - need to do that more often!
Next weekend should be able to install my new exhaust!
Waiting for my new black front grill!

Had to have my A/C replaced, and since my front end had to come off anyways I went ahead and upgraded to the S3 intercooler.
Saw a nice little bump in my boost pressure. Went from spiking 20 & holding 17 to 23/20

What is the transmission on your car? - manual, full automatic or tiptronic?

The engine cover must be adapted a lot to fit the new intake. On my plan to do it but for that I'll get another cover to make all mods.
Post more info later, when installed. The cover I'll figure out.
