    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 £11k with all the toys but does anyone know what they're like to drive and live with etc?

    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.

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

    Would make a great sound and go like **** off a shovel when u prodded the good pedal tho

    One of my colleagues has just bought one and keeps harping on about how fantastic it is.
