My 2002 Volkswagen Passat Wagon - V1GiLaNtE - 05-12-2009

Well guys I finally upgraded from my 1992 F150. I'm sure many of you know how much I've been talking about it.
It's a 2002 VW passat Wagon with a 2.8L V6 tiptronic. It's got 115,000 miles and has all the major service work done to it. I just ordered a badgless black and chrome grill as well as a 5000K HID kit for it.. Eventually I'll lower it and then add some 18" RS4 wheels.. Anyways, spent a lot of time washing and waxing it today so I took some pics. Enjoy!

Haha, it does just so happen to have a courtesy shade you can pull over the trunk area...

*UPDATE*
Well guys my HID's came in on friday and I installed them saturday! They are super bright and I am amazed at the improvement in visibility at night with them! Granted they were a little bit of a pain to get installed but it was well worth it! I've had my badgeless grill on for about a week but waited until I got my lights installed to post up some pics.. Snapped a couple in my driveway right after installation... anyways on to the pics!

Nice man I like the badgeless look.


- Jake - 05-25-2009

Looks sweet! I normally hate white cars, but lots of German cars, this included, do it right somehow. I'm sure those new headlights are a big improvement...

Now take off the silly free advertising for your VeeDub dealer on the front plate (maybe replace with chrome or baller JMU plate frame) and you'll be golden Big Grin

- V1GiLaNtE - 05-27-2009

Its a great kit. I believe its one of the more quality kits as well


- JustinG - 05-29-2009

But WTF, the VVME site??? looks shady as hell, and the kits are listed at $36.99. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://vvme.com/catalog/list-s-10145-10146.html">http://vvme.com/catalog/list-s-10145-10146.html</a><!-- m -->

Well last weekend replaced my Valve Cover Gaskets.. Driver side was leaking and burning oil.. anyways figured I'd throw up some pics of the internals.. I was very impressed at how clean the inside was for 115k miles.. :thumbup:
