    Thread: New 'Design Package' for Passat and Passat Estate

    1. 09-28-2005 09:07 PM #1

      WOLFSBURG, Germany - Passat customers can now upgrade their vehicle using the “design package” from Volkswagen Individual: the package gives both the saloon and the estate versions an appealing, personal and sporty touch.
      The love of the car is often reflected in the details: with dark chrome radiator grille, side window trims and rear lettering in the new “design package” for the Passat, for example. The anthracite-painted 18 inch “Chicago” alloy wheels with five double-spoke design and gloss finish are also an eye-catcher. These are combined with a 15 millimetre lower sports suspension which is specifically tuned to match the wheels. Tinted rear and side windows match the dark chrome and wheels.

      Kinda old news. I saw 1 about a month agao on a showroom floor. VAG had one on display at the IAA. The headrest monitors were awesome.

      what are those wheels called?

    12. 09-29-2005 06:10 AM #12
      Cool they look great. Does anyone else think the Passat on the left looks quite like tne last 3 series from that 3/4 angle. I've had both so I must like that shape!

      If I was in the market for a midsize sedan (or wagon), that Passat would definitely be my next car. *wipes drool off keyboard after looking at dark chrome*

      Its a shame we dont get the options of the Volkswagen Individual over here. I know there wouldn't be a huge market for them.
      HOWEVER...what I fail to understand, is why VW does not make used of the Individual "assets" to create special edition Passats. (Passat sport with dark chrome, big wheels, etc etc.)
      Or spruce up the top of the line Passats with some specialized leather, and chrome surrounds etc. I dont know how small the Volkswagen Individual operation is - but even though we will never get the super inidividual touches - if these exist...use them to pump up special Passats.
      It'd also be great if you could order pieces from an Individual catalogue (they'd sell out of the dark chrome, lol).

      Very nice. Audi'ish. Dark chrome would be nice "option".

      Given the upwards sloping, black rear valance on the Passat, I think these things look best in black. Best looking new Passat's I've seen...outside of the interior enhancements.

      That is BEYOND HOTNESS!!!
      What shockingly impressive additions to the car.
      Dark chrome grille, mouldings, badging...
      Awesome contrasting interior...
      Mirror-tinted windows...
      Sharp lookin' alloys...
      Lowered sport suspension...
      Heated front AND rear seats...
      6-spd manual...
      I'm in LOVE!
      Volkswagen Individual should be here. Or as mentioned, limited editions like this should be available in our market. This thing is fackin' brilliant!

      This is what should be and needs to be available here in the States. The Passat is already an awesome car but adding the Passat "I" to the equation will only draw in more customers.
      The darken chrome seem to push the Passat even further "UP" market. VWAG got the Passat right on the first try but the Passat "I" really hits the mark. I feel the Passat "I" is every thing that would want in a Passat. Now, lets hope VWAG takes this cue and make the Phaeton as sweet.

      Sorry about that...
      I have repeatedly said on here that the "release dates" given by VW are never accurate. If a date has been said, then I would just go with it. If it gets here sooner, then great! If it gets here later, then everyone on here is going to be pissed off at VWofA and every dealer for saying otherwise.
      I'm sorry that you feel Feb to July (so the rumor says) is too long to wait for a vehicle. I would think that if you can wait until Feb, you can wait 5 more months to July.

      I love the Vision V look alike wheels. Anyone know their actual name?

    29. 09-30-2005 07:17 PM #29

      guess what, I stopped by at a dealer today, and a sales guy printed a letter from VW saying that the wagon (MODEL YEAR 07) should be arriving at the docks by end ot THIS year, dealers were told not to sell until Jan 06. This was same dealer (different sales guy) who said 2 days ago that it looked like July.
      Man this is getting more confusing that a triple agent spy vs spy thriller.
      I was temped to go for an 05 wagon at $5K off, but after driving a 2.0 sedan, decided thats the way to go.

      Im sorry man, but I have said this sooo many times.
      It wouldn't be VW if it wasn't like this.
      O wait... I have been referring to the "public and "dealers" the whole time not...

      "dealer" within a "dealer". Proves my point even more. The first guy was probably on a forum somewhere while the second guy has only read the "official" press release weeks/months ago. Nothing agianst this dealer at all, I think you will find this with a number of dealers. Im not so sure that VW truly knows yet.
      Be patient and enjoy the ride, because most of us know it will all be worth it [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] within a year.
