Up for sale is 2003 Volkswagen Passat Silver Wagon with W8 engine with 4-motion & 5-speed Automatic tranny.

This is not ordinary VW Passat.
W8 has it's own components from top to bottom.
Powerful 8-cylinder in W-configuration which provides absolutely smooth power delivery compared to V-type engines.
270-hp and 270-lb/ft of torque is absolutely blast to drive.
It still gets 23-mpg on highway.
With 4-motion, powerful engine, beefier suspension and tranny, it drive the best on the snow or wet pavement.
W8 uses different transmission, suspension components, and brake system compared to other Passat models.
Springs and sway bars are specially matched for W8, the struts are same as S4(Red Koni shocks), Front Brakes are also same as S4(4-pads each side), and rear brakes are vented and larger as of Audi A6 V8 4.2 model(other passats and A6 models have non-vented rear brakes)
W-8 produces distinct exhaust notes some what similar to VR6 of R32.

Both front seats are power and driver's seat has memory function.
