My B6 Passat estate

Well picked this up today



Doesn't look to bad nice and straight, but needs a good clean and there's a couple of stone chips that require a touch up on the bonnet. Under the bonnet doesn't look to bad from a distance and considering the age/mileage etc



Although as always it can and will be improved



Got this week off work so going to make a start towards the end of next week

Anyone know what you get on an S spec, being trying to work out if there should be speakers in the rear doors as theres no sound? Haven't had chance to look inside the door card yet. I know it's bottom spec but surely it wouldn't just have speakers in the front?

There great cars and the shape is very easy to clean, but I hope its not a DSG version, if that box starts playing up get rid!

Older DSG boxes suffered expensive problems. IIRC the 6 speed is a wet box and needs oil changes the 7 speed is dry and does not. Also, I think there was a factory recall in warmer climates and China because an expensive electrical component within the gearbox was apt to fail. Go check the VW forums.

Nice car though, I like passats - good luck.

Before you start pulling things off for access [with the always-present potential for snapping plastic bits etc] check that the bias isn't set 100% to the front speakers.

Nice roomy motor, btw.
