    I think the passat is more like the A6 in size.

    Anythings possible with a bit of work, it was my understanding that the b5 a4 andpassat were on a very similar chassis, so length shouldnt be too much of an issue, they can always be chopped and shortened/lengthened easy enough. The passaat arches seem to flair a bit more than the audi's though, so also a bt of work needed to be done there. I'd find someone with the right passat and have a cheeky measure of their cill lenght and start from there. It's not gonna be a simple bolt on, but it could be done imo, either by yourself or by a half competant body shop and you'd have something different from the rest. Got me thinking now.....

    B5 Passat is a bigger car, somewhere between a B5 and a C5 A6 in length afaik.

    Few folk on here have commented on the fact that the passat has a lot more rear legroom.

    They could be made to fit though.... Too long is defo better than too short!

    Looking at dimensions the passat wheelbase is around 100mm longer

    B5 Passat rear doors are much longer than B5 A4.

    It's not size that matters......

    As stated, too long is much easier to deal with than too short
