I would like to purchase Volkswagen Passat. 

What do you all think about this car?

Does it come with radiator?

Buying new or used? Anyway you better read more on the Passat engine before you buy. The local Passat already with 1.8Tsi engine, means turbo charged. Why do you want to change the intercooler and add supercharger?

Another thing, the engine is water cooled so it comes with a radiator. You must be thinking of the older VW Beetle......lol

I buying a CBU used car and find it underpower. Thus, I'm plan to add supercharger to it. I worry the intercooler cannot handle default settings.

I have found the Proreka Sprintex supercharger is not suitable for Volkswagen. Do you know any other seller who offer Volkswagen Supercharger?

CBU? do you mean the Passat CC then? But Passat CC also have the 1.8Tsi engine which is turbo charged also.

As far as I know the main problem will be their 7 speed DSG gearbox which have big issues.....

Read too many -ve comments about their dry clutch DSG 7. Hoping there are real owners of this model that can share their experiences. I'm really interested with CC but no couragse to own one.
