Fingers crossed its all good then. Drives ok at the min but I've only done a few short trips, although I'm heading down to Southampton tomorrow for a couple of days so it will get a good run then.

Nice roomy motor, btw.
Been looking at it this morning and it's got nothing! found out that's how they come unless you tick the upgrade box, so I've ordered some new speakers

There was no rear speakers on the S spec, if I remember well it was a £50 option. On a car of that size, class and year of build you would think that kind of an option wouldn't even exist!

Tell me about seems to be the German way of doing things, don't suppose you know how to take the head unit out do you?

If my memory serves me well, I think you just remove the console trim and then you should see the security screws holding the unit in

Yep - the silver trim around the head unit just pips off, iirc starting from the bottom. There are 4 torx screws behind it which will let you take it out. It's a quadlock connector, with individual blocks for power, speakers, CD changer and displays iirc.

Great cars Passats. I loved mine.

Thanks cooks and rhopkins.

Been looking at upping the spec levels in various ways, what bits are plug and play? I need a hands free kit but didn't know if it would plug into the standard head unit also was wondering about cruise control? If anyone knows the answers to these it would be a big help as the Passat forum I'm on is about as good as a chocolate teapot

No probs chum. RE the hands free kit, the head unit is a canbus system and doesn't have a switched live at the rear. This has to be taken from the back of the heater control panel.

Cruise is a very easy fit, a friend did it on his 2004 a4, so I'd assume it's the same on the passat. He bought the stalk, lower steering wheel cowling, fitted them and the got a friend with VAGCOM to code it, hey presto, all done for around 180 quid.
