The sad day has come when we have to part ways with our Passat.
280K miles. Never failed to proceed.
Nebio Blue (light blue to you and me)

It has been a faithful servant to us for 15 years and we bought it at 108K. It has been to switzerland x2 Germany x3 south of france last summer.

I cannot bring myself to scrap the car as it deserves better than that and will provide reliable cheap transport for someone for a few more years yet.

With the rose tinted spectacles off for a moment, there are 1 or 2 issues.

Airbag light doesnt extinguish however whenever it goes for an MOT they plug it into the computer, this resets the light and a pass is given, it comes on several days later.

There is a leak into the rear drivers side footwell via the ECU hole in the bulkhead. This is a known issue with the B5 and can be fixed with silicone etc. I was going to do this but having had to do a similar job on the passenger side because of the pollen filter hole (same issue different side) i can't be bothered.

Passenger rear door intermittently unlocks with the central locking, I expect this is to do with the various dunkings the CCM module has had over the years!.

Brakes pads will needed soon.

There is a small bubble of rust on the roof by the rain gutter and a similar sized patch by the rear window.

On a more positive note, it is still on its original exhaust and the underside and rest of the bodywork is in very good condition for a car that has lived a lot of life!

The car is free as I realise that it is worthless to everyone else other than myself plus I was given Skizzers Dedra, and we were given our replacement car, so the karma god is watching me closely to do the right thing!

The car is currently SORN (sorry wasn't thinking) and is located in Burnham on Sea, Somerset. I can collect the lucky person from Highbridge train station or Weston is required.

All I ask is that a donation is made to daveb47 for hosting this great forum!

Any questions please ask.

Here it is in Pau last summer.

I will see if anyone genuinely wants / needs the car first.  If there are no takers and people want to do it, roffle it is.

I cannot bring myself to scrap the car

 

 

 

 

I could, quite happily!

 

 

On a SRS note though, that's a kind offer (free car/or forum donation) and hopefully someone will save it and get some use out of it.

These are fucking brilliant cars, I had a few of these back in the day as cars with the job I was doing at the time. So comfortable, a real motorway cruiser, went like stink as well. Did Sheffield to Southampton and back in it in a day at hundred it was barely ticking over. I'd be all over this if I was car less. My folks live in Minehead so I'd kill two birds with one stone. Pah!!!

Commendable spirit of generosity shown here squire - I'm currently driving an A4 on loan from bigdan30 with the same engine and similar mileage, and will confirm that at 300k these are barely run in

Kiltox, may I baggy this after you? Ma_Sterling could do with a motorway going vehicle. Plus timing is better. She is due to be back on the mainland.

Cheers man.
