Hello All

Hello all,

Just joined the forum last week and looking forward to gleaning plenty of tips for a Passat W8 - that I purchased last year - and how best to maintain this wonderful piece of kit.

I hardly use it, to be honest, mainly because as its a Ex-Japanese vehicle, the condition is pretty amazing - I am tempted to some subtle mods, but unsure where to start - SS exhaust and/or engine tuning.

Any tips from you guys would be gratefully received as I am told the W8 is a pretty rare old thing.

:(( Yeah, have heard that from others. So far, so good with mine but as always something will happen to cause 'tears at bedtime'

Thats why I tried to find the best I could find - proper history, preventative work etc...
