New Passat owner

Hi everyone! My name is John and I'm from Colorado Springs, CO. As the title states, I'm a new owner of a 2003 Passat. It's a auto 1.8 model GLS. I'm not new to turbos as my weekend car is a modified Dodge Avenger AWD Turbo. I've beat on it for the last 5 years and its transfer case and pumpkin finally fried on me, so I needed a DD...and here I am.

Once again, hello everyone! I hope to learn from this community as much as I've learned from the DSM community!

Cool Eye M Gnu

So according to my email I need to come here FIRST and introduce myself. Well okey dokey then!

Nothing too exciting...

My name is Chuck I live in Florida with my wife, 4 kids a few cats and my CRTB. I don't own nor have I ever owned (technically) a VW but I've always wanted a Ghia. So as I approach/enter my midlife crisis I'd like to start learning about Karmann Ghia's and hope to eventually use that knowledge to purchase one. I'm not sure if I want to buy a daily driver or restore one so I'll figure that out as I go.

I enjoy cigars, my motorcycle, MMA the Pittsburgh Steelers (of course!) and passionately pursuing a relationship with Jesus Christ.

And that's all I got to say about that.............

newcomer

New guy here, looking to purchase a vw diesel. VERY frustrated that vw has dropped the Passat wagon... why?
So, can I buy one in Europe, diesel, and ship it here? Will it work on US diesel?
Thanks.

Just checking in here. Used to have a 99.5 vr6 jetta and recently picked up an 02 vr6 jetta for next to nothing that jumped timing.

My name is Kenji.
I have been visiting this site so long and finally decided to join.
Long time VW driver in Southern California.

1987 Jetta GLI 16V, 160K miles, totaled
2000 Jetta GLS, leased, returned.
2004.5(Mk IV) Jetta GLI, current, 70K miles+

I still love the '87 16V.
That was the first brand new car I purchased after college!

Nice to see you all.
