Just picked up a new to me 2005 Passat TDI wagon on Tuesday. I had one about 10 years ago and regretted getting rid of it. This one as 202,000 miles (nothin!) and has had the balance shaft delete mod along with a 5 speed manual transmission!! It needs a good detailing and a few other minor issues addressed, such as the passenger rear door not unlocking. I put in an aftermarket stereo with XM which sounds great. Looking forward to reading the threads and learning more about the car. I plan on keeping it for a long time.
