      Thank you! Suspension is ST coilovers. Rear has about 3 threads left. I have 17.5mm for the rear (which may be overkill) and 8mm for the front. Will get a better look when the aftermarket wheels go on. May run 8mm on rear and nothing up front. Tomorrow should tell, I wasn't satisfied with the offsets I ended up with, but time is short for SoWo.

      Absolutely perfect height ! Nice one. Can't wait to see the whole effect.

      p.s. That white Jetta in the background of the top pic looks pretty feisty... I guess your Passat is for the groceries :-)

      Thanks to MochaVDub, who shipped it to Miami this week, during my brief stay there. Thx, bro.
      And Bleser, who inspire us with his excellent ideas.
      This week installation. Than more pics...
      That is some serious contraband. You have excellent taste! Looking forward to seeing it in place.

      got my first alignment since DG springs went on last year. Man, toe was way off on all 4 wheels!

      Camber in the rear was a little much for my tastes, and the shop said it's not adjustable. That's not true, is it?

      @Aleremb1, well done on the steering wheel!

      1st - Nice keychain...I have one too

      2nd - That looks real clean and well done

      3rd - I was thinking of adding a sub but I am kinda confused on how the wiring will be done. How did you run yours?

      That keychain is a must-have for 2.0T owners, and thanks!

      As for the wiring, I don't know much about that stuff and I had someone that does, do the work for me. The RCA(?) and remote wires run from along the left side of the car, from the trunk to head-unit (through 'holes' under the steering wheel). The power wire was a pain because I had to remove the battery to get the opening and pull it through but it's not too bad. I hope this is the answer you were looking for. If you have anymore questions I'll try to answer them for ya.

      Introduced the Vw to it´s new home today. A nice little cottage originally built in 1860´s but modernized in the early 90´s.
      An 800 square feet big garage for the old Bimmer and 86000 square feet yard for the Passat to hang out in. About a 1/4 mile away is a litte harbour for bowriders and dayvruisers. Love it!

      A lift is going in there for sure although I haven´t decided if I should go with a two-pillar lift or a scissor-lift. A nice compressor for air and some nice chairs is on the short list aswell. Thinking of getting a set of electrical leather seats from an BMW 7-series or similar. Would fit perfectly in a garage.

      I knew it!lol I say a 2 pillar just for the freedom/space it offers you. I know i would have a hard time moving around a scissor lift. God forbid something happen and you cant make a straight dash for it. Im likin' the 7 series seats idea too.. GL man!

      Thx, feels good. If my plans for the house works out it´ll be great!

      Throwing in a pic of the Passat in the garage. Not super big but def big enough for a hobby-garage.



      The Kawasaki will find a new home in the crib aswell. I might need a new rear tire for this season though...

      i just bought an 06 b6 last weekend. took it over to the dealer to have the cam follower checked and on top of that have the oil changed. was told by service writer that there were 2 recalls they were going to fix. after reading up on cam follower issues, i hope they replace mine without any problems.

      thanx to member Track5tar for the heads up on the cam follower.

      will update soon and post results. also requested to see the old follower to show you guys how mine looked after 63,000 miles.
