Save your money and get genuine B6 arms from ebay.  Can usually be had for about £40 a pair.

Add to those genuine B6 ball joints (around £40 each from VW) and you're good to go, and cheaper and better quality than those pattern parts.

Every bolt on the chassis except the brake caliper carrier bolts are one-time use only, so budget for those also.

 :happy2:

You will like the Passat control arms.  I think the steering pivot points are different to a GTI.  The steering response is a bit sharper with the Passat arms  :happy2:
