Hi all,

my background has generally been jap, with previous cars being a Honda Civic Vti 200 bhp, then an Integra Type R which was nitrous'd, then onto a subaru Impreza Turbo.

After suddenly finding out that i was gonna be a dad, i had to get something sensible, so went for a vw passat and promised myself no modding..............(yeah right)

Anyway, i bought the car 2 years ago, didnt touch a thing on it, just kept it clean, and then i got bored so started to do little things to it...
here goes with the pics.....

this is the car in standard form, its 2.0 Tdi SPORT, 140 bhp fully loaded.

Passat B6.... VWPASSAT008


Passat B6.... VWPASSAT006

Passat B6.... VWPICS005


The first mod i did to the car was getting some side skirts and front lip, these are genuine vw parts as i wanted to keep the car oem....

then came the 19" wheels and AP coilovers...

Passat B6.... Newwheels004[/url]
Passat B6.... NewStance006-1[/url]

then some goodies arrived from germany in the shape of de badged grill and new headlights..

heres a pic with the headlights fitted below, grill is not fitted yet as you can see i didnt like the number plate recess so got my local bodyshop to get rid of it and get a smooth look on the front.....

Passat B6.... Edition38062[/url]

The final body mod i added was a boot spoiler, again oem part from vw...

thanks for the comments guys, i quite liked the wheels when i bought them, but have now worn off, been tinkering with the idea of some merc rims, then some bbs lm's even looked at some th lines but in the end went for some image wheels....once the air ride and wheels are on i will then be getting hid fogs and lights and poss carbon roof. then leather inside but thats on hold for now... just want to get it sitting right.

Commented on this on edition. looks awesome m8, and i wouldnt go taking material off anythin unless you really have to. i think 1 degree of camber on the front will see the tyre tucked Cool

the front just needed the arch rolling, and tucks in perfectly now.
as i wasnt brave enough the first time of slamming the bags!

wheel spec 19x9.0j offset (educated guess) et20, hard to say as the wheels where made to measure to fit the car.
