      We’ve all seen it before, the distinctive headlights of a Ford Crown Victoria in our rear view mirror. Is it a taxi or a cop? We hope it’s just a taxi, but that’s just wishful thinking, we know we’re about to get pulled over. If you live in the Town of Herndon, you need to keep an eye out for another set of headlights – the Passat.

      A tuned turbo that can run on midgrade, not supreme? Sounds good to me!

      Looks like those cars were actually quite tastefully modded. And they look kind of badass too. Makes the new Chargers around here look dull in comparison!

      Can we civilians buy them when the police are done with them, like the Crown Vic Interceptors? That could be fun.

      Stage II 2.0T?

      Not too long ago the Swedish police started to buy bone stock D5 Volvos to replace the older turbo petrols.. Yes, diesels that is.

      i doubt these would go to auction..probably to some vw museum when they retire.
      but yes, you can buy police interceptors. My buddy and I flew down to Florida where a dealer specializes in buying and fixing up police crown vics/caprices and resells them. Still has the spot light and says Police Interceptor on the back fun drive back to MD haha

      edit-they had one of these wagons at waterfest. loved it

      So just like American car companies that fall short on their sale numbers, VW is now dumping them on the local police at a discount.

      I like them. VW might have something on their hands with these two cars.

      I think these packages would work well in the "civilian" world too. Of course, minus the lights and maybe the HD suspension, these cars would be awesome as a selectable package off the showroom floor.

      If VW could push the Fahrenheit GTI and Jetta, they could easily move these two cars.

      Turn these two PAssats into special editions. There is nothing too special about what was done, so just like the 337, 20thAEand Jetta GLI, these Passats are very buildable.

      Also, this could help APR get more money out of that 89 Octane 2.0t program.

      I wouldn't know what VW could call them...maybe "Midnight"" or "New Moon" or "Spec Ops".

      Kudos to VW, this time.
