2003 Volkswagen Passat Question: need an oil pan gasket?

Your 2.8 uses a silicone gasket, so there is no pan gasket per se. I like to use the Victor Reinz OEM silicone gasket kit which is basically a high grade tube of silicone.

That's what I thought. I just ordered a new pan and a tube of Reinz, so I should be in good shape.
