So I have big plans for my passat and this thread is a good way for me to keep everything in one thread and allow for guys to come bash on the things I've done
So let's start from the beginning. I've had my 2010 passat now for about 2 years. I've had lots of fun modding it up to this point and have met a number of great guys. Here's a pic from the very beginning. It rolled out of the showroom with 11miles and went straight for tint at the dealer. Then it came home
I was very fortunate to have gotten my passat at the time because many of the parts from VW were on closeout. I bought DG springs for $35, base bars for $27, Rline dead pedal for $15, and door sills for $20. Not bad at all.
I tackled the springs install at 4k miles... let the modding begin
at 5k miles, the passat got its first oil change and I made my first DIY http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...2010-passat%29
not too long after that I got APR stage 1. I was happy with it for a good 2 months and decided to go stage 2. I went through a whole fiasco with the USP dp that I bought... I just don't wanna talk about it haha.
Hids went in
then came the door sills and dead pedal
then wrapped the roof
now i wanted an intake and forge hooked me up with a kit. I helped fab up the side scoop for passat/cc
not too long after, I ripped apart my car to install a sub. jl 12w3
I found a rain sensor and auto dim mirror at a junkyard for $75 shipped... that was a pain in the azz project
then i got my car up on a dyno... and decided that apr sucks
I started to get bored so now i just got parts for the hell of it. got the awe turbo outlet pipe (top)
now its time for a boost gauge and while i was at it, I just got the awe dv to install at once. got a bsh tap with 2 taps
I blew my sub so I got this monster of a sub... a 30 pounder.. recommended by Bill lol
Then I found a deal on a BB catback exhaust that I couldnt pass up. I also decided to powdercoat my wheels.
during black friday i ordered a black grill and get it painted and clear bra'd
last xmas i got myself a present! kw v2 coilovers
