    Passat W8

    Anyone had any experiences of the above. I know they're a 4.0 W8 and you can pick up a good example for around Ł11k with all the toys but does anyone know what they're like to drive and live with etc?
    Unmolested Ming blue S3 (so it doesn't handle or stop very well), Bose, sunroof and centre armrest but no heated seats - Gone but not forgotten although I am enjoying the new 350CLK!

    I know that they sound like a NASCAR and look just as dull as any other Passat - its more of a limo than a sportscar. Never driven a W8 though.

    not driven any of the W cars, but i would of thought the front end has the weight spread across it a bit much for a sports drive... would think its an insane straightliner though.
    just a little a6

    Passats are pretty boat like through corners so it depends what you want it for.
