    I have met the owner a few month back in Ace Cafe.. nice but would have made more sense if it was an a4 or a6 conversion not a vw!

    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 "*****", 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 !

    Isn't Syncro the VW equivilant of Quattro so it's 4 wheel drive too ???? imagine the fun though.... would love to have the time and money to do something like that

    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.

    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 ****, 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.
