      So I've bought a '06 Passat 2.0T with 78k on it and i check on the oil and that was fine but the cap looks like this
      This was the picture before i cleaned it alittle it had more gunk and this white almost milky oil on the cap aswell is that good or bad?
      Also what wheels are these? will they fit my car?

      thanks

      The milky gunk is just the condensation(water) mixing with the oil. It's a common problem if you drive short distances which doesn't allow the engine to get up to operating temperature to burn it off.

      The BMW wheels are 5x120, so you would need adapters

      It would be better for it if it didn't produce it, but it shouldn't have an overall affect on it. Just make sure you do a couple drives a week where the car gets up to normal temp, and it will burn off.

      The bolt pattern, PCD, on VWs since 2006 is 5x112, meaning its 5 bolts on a 112mm bolt circle. Adapters bolt to your hubs and change the PCD to a different size.
