Hello, what kind of battery should I buy for a vw 2003 passat?

Actually,I would suggest just taking it to an Advance or AutoZone and having them swap it for you for free and get a standard 60 month battery.Or if you want to do it yourself,just get a 60 month battery from a reputable parts store near you. I dont advocate Walmart as everything they sell comes from overseas lol. But your model may be either a top post or a side post battery.You can just look at your old one and see the post set up.But a 60 month battery should do you just fine.You can spend a ton of money on a bettery which is overkill really.You car does not require that many cold cranking amps or a deep cycle.Remember,they will try and sell you the biggest battery they can lol.

Engine swap

Generally it is not recommended using parts either that the ones designed for same model, however some Passat engine connects same way as Golf. You need to know the Passat engine year and verify engine mounting procedure and connections positions. Getting the two Haynes manuals for the two VW models can help you to compare.
