      Need help understanding wheel fitment

      I'm a new owner of a D4 A8. I still have my VW Phaeton and wonder if the wheels will fit on the A8.

      Can someone tell me if 255/45R18 8.5Jx18 ET45 5x112 will fit on a D4 A8? If usable, could you...

      Is this what they call an "adaptation"?

      I wish my blower was as accessible as a B6. Unfortunately I have to get under the hood, remove a plenum, cowling, etc.

      Resistor or Blower Motor?

      Understood. It is the real deal, ROSS-TECH cable, but my only PC is a real dinosaur. I'll figure out a way to post the entire scan.

      Resistor or Blower Motor?

      Forgive my ignorance, but I typed, word for word, the HVAC related information from my scan. Is there pertinent information missing?

      FYI - I lowered my B6 with EibachPro Springs and added 17" wheels. If your roads are mostly smooth or you drive a lot of curves, you will LOVE the change. If you live in an area with lots of straight...

      You hit the nail on the head TheBossQ. I should have gained more knowledge before I lowered. I relied on Eibach advertising.

      I thought I was rotating tires "regularly", but as I read more I see...

      I feel I'm a victim of my own ignorance. I trust that any mechanic understands the intricacies of tuning a suspension and at the very least knows how to use the alignment equipment.

      Adding input to stock '06 head unit?

      My Passat doesn't have a CD changer input in the trunk. Do all head units have CD changer input behind the head unit? If so, I'm guessing I can plug into it with an 1/8th inch converter.

      I've got...

      Do I really need to get an alignment?

      I'm dropping 1.2" and adding new 17's with tires. Does that REQUIRE an alignment?

    15. Add a spacer and that's it? Is it really that easy?

      My 2006 Passat requires 42-55mm offset. The wheels I want are 40mm offset. All I have to do is purchase a spacer 2-15mm, bolt on and I'm good to go?
      Any recommendations on how far to go? I assume...

      Thanks! Now I have a lot of links to wheel/tire web pages, very informative, but I still don't know the allowable offset for a 2006 Passat. Tire size won't be an issue, they seem to be the same....
