    Isn't the idea of a sleeper is to look standard, or sh1te as you put it? lol I mean remapped RS4 power in a Passat has to be lol quick in a straight line!

    Im with Jo Jo on this one.
    It looks far from "****e", It looks like a tidy passat. Thats the point with that type of car.
    As for the it being a VW, Scratch off the nice 4 rings and most of us could be driving a skoda or seat !

    Me too, in an Audi it would just be another engine conversion, it the Passats it's something very unusual. Cool in my opinion.

    sleepers ftw!!

    i like this, nothing would give me greater pleasure than blowing 99% of anything that wanted a go off the lights in a standard looking, roughed up 't' reg passat

    i would have to get a camera in the rear windscreen so i could record the look on peoples faces as i left them standing lol

    Yeah, but look at how uncontrollable is it ?!?

    I bet that Passat is as set and planted as an RS4, not some crappy box top van with a lairy V8 in it that you can't go anywhere in.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    It was a bit tongue in cheek.. it's obviously one of the most impractical sleepers you could build but good fun on the 1/4 mile.

    I remember seeing a really ratty Mk2 Transit at the NSRA Nostalgia Nationals one year, it was absolutely silent as it rolled past the stands and we all thought it was a pit/break down wagon.

    Then it pulled up to the line and with no drama or massive burnouts it did a 8 second quarter, and it made so little noise that nobody turned round to watch it ! haha

    Seen that a few times and saw it for sale a while ago on ed38, love it!!

    Would love to be in that, scaring a few people off the streets.

    I remember years ago, my mate had a tatty B reg Vauxhall Cavalier Hatchback, rust all over it, looked crap, but it had a full GSI2000 engine conversion, and it was wicked to see it fly past a few decent cars that were around back then.

    well N8 thanx for your comment but it might look like **** but guess what ive left it parked in carparks and in public places and no need to worry as no one pays it attention, where my friend that has a lovely rs4 worries every time where ever he parks it even at home incase they break in for the keys.

    S3K04 reason i didnt buy a s4 in the first place is that the rear leg room is ****!!!! and i am not a big fan of the A6 to be honest and this was perfect size (passats are smaller than a A6 by 8cms). Even thou it is called a Passat Syncro or 4 motion it not really it is more like a A6 quattro under it all. I am running all the quattro stuff with RS6 coilovers etc and it handles just as well as any RS I have driven or been in. Even Doug at MRC compliments it on its handling

    otherwise guys thank you very much i am the very proud owner of the passat and it is a true awesome beast a e36 m3 last week could not understand how i made him look like a 1L micra the look on his face was priceless

    Another added benifit as mentioned above is that giving it some one day come round a corner and the police was waiting for a sports car of some sort to appear i went past them no more the wiser, hiding the exhaust was the best thing i ever did lol. but then one day going up the A10 to Ware traffic cops pulled me as the car didn't look or sound normal, I wasn't breaking any laws or anything, i just think they wanted to see it under the bonnet as they had a list of all the mods declared and couldnt believe it. Some times these guys are really nice and as much of a petrol heads as us.

    Except for a few of MRC tuned cars i.e. over 500bhp and a couple of bikes i still haven't found anything that gives me to much hassel

    if you have any questions let me know but thanx for the kind words.
