  1. Passat (B7)
    I started this build a little over a year ago and now that it’s complete I thought I’d show it off. I have a 2017 VW Passat Sel-P Vr6 it now has 6 Piston brakes in the front from a Porsche Cayenne, 4 piston in the rear from a Cayenne and separate Mk6 Golf R32 e-brake. Lowered in some H&R street...
  2. Passat (B7)
    So I got eveything put on rn but I need to run at lease 10mm spacers with the 18z kit. The mechanic is worried that the wheel is sticking out of the wheel well now and my damage the fender. The car is lowered about an 1 1/2 inch H&R street comfort coil overs. Any advice would help. Should I...
  3. Passat (B7)
    Another update on the B7 passat and lots to go over. So I took the car in a few months back into “Eurocode tuning” for a ECU and TCU tune from APR. Turns out my car is already tuned to 91 octane from APR from the previous owner which explains the borla exhaust and needle sweep test in the dash...
  4. Passat (B7)
    Been looking for the production numbers for the GT specifically and not having much luck. I'm getting ready to take my car to a large event and I am sure that the question will get asked, was hoping somebody might have an answer for me.
  5. Passat (B7)
    Long story short my wheels from Ecs are shipping on the 20th (Alzor 628, 19x8.5 ET45) The stock 18inch wheels for a 2017 Sel I believe are 18x8 ET48. I’m wanna say I’m running 235/40 by 18 tires. Is it possible to run 245/40 by 19 (Michelins pilot sport 4s) for “extra grip” on the alzors...
  6. Passat (B7)
    So after a few months of contemplating a full wrap (in Nardo grey) I decided to just go with the chrome delete only. I additionally had him wrap the roof and mirrors too. And personally I love it!! Now I’m just waiting on my Five spoke Alzors to come in. P
  7. Passat (B7)
    Fault Code: P217700, P217900 recently added a cold air intake to my Vr6 Passat and now my cars check engine light came on. Also says misfiring for cylinder 1, and 3. Anyone else have this problem? Definitely thinking about swapping it back out.
  8. Passat (B7)
    I’m entering my 4th year with the car and I’m trying to find a way to keep the excitement with it - and with keeping the excitement, avoid trading it in for a new ride. I have my eye on a few cosmetic upgrades and wondered if others have done anything similar. If so, I wondered where you sourced...

    I’m seeing a lot of these pop up in the aftermarket community. I’m not sure where people are finding these Cayenne brakes (z18’s 2008-2010 model year) but I’ve looked in every damn corner of the web there is (pick and pull yards too). I’d like to add these to my car so if anyone has any ideas...
  12. Passat (B7)
    Looked everywhere for a stealthbox that will fit in the trunk of a Passat GT. All I can find is ones for the B5 or B6 platform. It’s a damn shame cause there’s a perfect spot for one. Does anybody know where I can at least get an enclosure or am I going to have to go custom?

    Chattanooga’s Volkswagen assembly has been rolling like a train, producing more Passats than you could reasonably be expected to shake a sensibly sized stick at. In case you lost track of how many Passats have rolled off the line, VW today announced that it has made the 700,000 th Passat at...

    Look. It's good. It's actually really good. But I can't help wanting more. It doesn't make me giggle, it doesn't sound that much better, and it doesn't feel as special as VW is trying to convince you it is. It feels just a little too anodyne, a little too safe, a little too smart. It just...
