Post by: Hapahaole on November 02, 2008, 08:02:32 PM
  Hey all, I'm the newbie all around.  I got my Passat about a week ago and it is not only the first VW for me but a great endevor.  It is a 99 1.8t.  Obviously I am here because I love the car thus far and will be doing as many mods as I can.  I hope I will be able to get some great help along the way since I have only had easy to work on domestics til now....

Hi! Glad you found us, I certainly hope we can help you out along the road of ownership. It's a great car and a great motor. Since you are new to the VW world take some time to search around on the following topics:

timing belt
sludge
control arm

Don't be scared by me highlighting those items, but especially on a 10 year old car these are things that need to be monitored and maintained for many years of happy ownership going forward.

As mentioned, lets see some pictures, we always love the eye candy. Feel free to post up any questions and we'll do out best to answer.
