      Placing a h7 bulb into a blind hole is the only hard part, you need a hand mirror.. Otherwise it's a very simple install.

      Aww man The funny part is, ever since I have had the car since day 1, fresh off the lot, there was a rule about no eating in the car. Still never eat in the car and the buttons just peeled off lol. It seems like vw used some cheap rubberized paint product.

      That sucks man. I've seen plenty of Vw's with that issue. My pop's corvette and my brothers mustang are doing it too.

      This is also another great mod that can be done under $50. This is one of the best things that I've done to any car I've owned. I'm hooked on clean light man.

      Sweet! My dad had an 06 vette, but had to sell it, but my friend has an almost fully built 05 gt. I've been a mustang fan my whole life and can't wait to get mine, and his pulls so damn hard, it's amazing, but there is still something about or cars and the turbo that I enjoy so much lol. Plus good mpg!

      You need to go test drive the new 5.0. It's nuts man. So fast and turns like you wouldn't believe.

      At the end of the day I've decided to get another passat over a sports car. I need my car to be professional. I'm looking for work as an entry level accountant...

      My new passat is gonna be 2010 with dsg. Then its gonna get an Fmic, ko4, and a body kit.

      Yeah you have no idea on how bad I want to test drive it. Yeah and those cars wouldn't be very good as daily drivers either lol. Hope you find a job that's hiring. Our cars now are pretty much one of the ultimate sleepers and not to mention pretty rare. I havn't seen many of the b6 passats around town. I know the reasons why, but it's pretty cool to know lol.

      One of the main reasons is price. This car is in the mid size sedan range and is a bit more in price than say a camry or an accord, but our cars's quality is ten times better. The other reason is, not many people knew about them because it wasn't being advertised as much like the jetta. Vw made it clear and said that they want the jetta to be the most sold vehicle in their lineup. Also, people still recollect the terrible vw reliabilty and hefty german car repair costs. Those are the basics lol.

      Have you though about getting a tune? Check to see who is in your area and see if its something you're interested in. The results are surprisingly good.

      I did an apr trial and it was awesome. I am going to go with a unitronics tune in the near future.

      I used to have an '88 mustang with full exhaust, heads, intake, cam, gears and I feel like I felt more difference with just the tune than I did with all of that stuff I did to the mustang.

      Maybe just go somewhere who offers a free trial and see what you think then go where ever you want for the tune. You will def want it. Not only power gains but normal drivability increased massively. Gets rid of that stupid dead spot when you first push the gas.

      Yeah, I'm really considering doing that. One of my buddie's doesn't realize that my 2.0t can compete with his v8 if I had a tune. I lost to him only because I had to spool up and plus he has awd. People should look outside of the box and stopped being so narrow minded lol. Thanks for the inputs everyone.

      Get tuned, then upgrade your dv valve with an aftermarket one, you can add a boost gage

      It's an 04 jeep grand cherokee. The reason it's a lot better is because he has the high output which adds 40 more hp and tq from the factory. I know for a doubt this can most certaintly win, but It's not up to par yet.
