Find of the Day: OEM+ Volkswagen Passat 1.8T 4Motion

The B5 generation Volkswagen Passat isn’t just a pretty face.  When it was introduced, the Passat won numerous awards and was well received by both journalists and consumers alike.  Over the years we have seen our fair share of modified versions of B5 and ‘facelifted’ B5.5 cars, and they always seem to leave us wanting more.  Today’s Find of the Day is one such Passat, with a number of OEM-inspired modifications.

For interior modifications, the Passat has an upgraded steering wheel, aftermarket oil temperature and boost gauges, and European headlight switch among many other touches.

In the performance department, the Passat’s 1.8T has been treated to an APR chip, full APR exhaust, and a Forge Diverter Valve, while the suspension benefits from KW V1 Coilovers, and Porsche Brake Calipers and 312mm rotors from an Audi A8 help to bring it to a halt.
