|First of all i would like to apologise for my bad writing English , unfortunately writing is my week point , but fingers crossed you will manage to understand something

Going back to business i would like to send big thank you to all that voted for my car this month, its much appreciated :-bd

This will be a little story of becoming all VAG and Passat fan
All started in 2008 year i was fed up with putting money in my old LAGUNA , i phoned one garage in Manchester and Part exchange my French car for a lovely German PAssat , and that was the best decision i maid for years

on beginning my satt looked like that :)

Image

few mods later it anded up like that :)

Image

of course life couldn't be perfect so i flooded the engine :) Loved the car so much that i decided to buy new engine :) and after couple of days of hard work :) Kermit was back on the road :)

Image
Image
Image

but then after 3 days and less then 100miles i manage to crash it ~x(
Image

that was end of Kermit i did know that i cant save it any more :) so took some money from insurance and been looking for a new Vag car , been thinking about Audi A4 but couldn't find anything in my price range and with the stuff that i wanted ...

Then this beautiful thing came on the UKPASSAT forum --->

Image
Image
Image

6sp , leather interior , AVF engine and low mileage and a re-map ... So couple of messages later i decided to go and have look on the car, and it came with me back home

Image

Coming back home DMF decided to die on my :( and couple of days later Passat did have need one ;)
Image

Forgot to say that the old passat was striped from all the parts that i only could take :) as i couldn't just live them for the scrappy :(
So i ended up with all of this :) ->
Image
Image

And all of this parts been slowly added to the new car

first brace bar :)
Image
expansion tank
Image
mirrors with indicators
Image
de-egr
Image
new grill
Image

after all of that there it was a time to sort out a couple of problems like my back boot now opening , no light in the glove box , and a lot of water in the car :(

Boot was fixed after many many days of checking the cables , swapping the motors , and finely after 3 CCM it was working like new ;)
Image

Light in the blow box was in the pieces so it was just a mater of putting it back together and all work fine again :)
Image

But the last one water in the car was the worst to sort our :( as it was coming from everywhere ;(
So i for the time to fit my ICE to sort all out
I did need some VW sealant cord
Image
Image
Image

and after striping all apart inside of the car looked like that
Image

then it was the best part of fitting my new ice :) Alpine speakers and Vibe amp :)
Image

sound proofing, and i need to say and up result was superb :)
Image
Image
Image

Now i was a happy bunny as my car was working as it should and all the problems were finely sorted

So there was a time for some more moods , and again thx to Ukpassat forum i manage to but de-egr kit and some xenon headlights :)
Image
Image
Image
Image

and the ala W8 exhaust fitted
Image

now was time to look for some rims :)
DTM 18"
Image

but it was to high so ended up buying ta-technix coilovers ;)
Image

next were them tinted windows :) with tinted vision :) again a guy that i find over on this forum :)
Image
Image

Passat was looking nice (im my opinion by then) so decided to go for more power and ended up with bigger BRD turbo , FMIC and OCT :)
Image
Image
Image

but unfortunately didn't have time to go and re map it again so its working on the old map , not using full potential of the Turbo

Next moods were cruse control and new steering wheel :) as the old one was looking tired
Image
Image

Votex boot spoiler and new grill :)
Image
Image

\m/ \m/

So far so good but then , radiator decided to leek , and there was a time to replace it with the new one :)
Image
Image

Then back to happy days :) and some more little touches -->
Image
Image
Image
Image

and this is how it look at Ed38 this year :)
Image
Image

then them wheels came cheap and i couldn't stop my self from not getting them 19" BMW x5 wheels
Image
Image

colour is not right so soon they will be resprayed in silver and it will look more or less like that
Image
Image

my last added touch is this sticker that ive seen at Ed38 and couldn't resist to buy one of them and it ended up on my car
Image
Image

i would say that's a story of me and my sats and there is still few thing to come in 2012 :) so watch my tread

|Finely i would like to say thank you to UkPassat forum and all the members for all the help that i could find here ... Without you i would not manage to mode my car as i did... THX guys

THATS ALL FOLKS :)
