      I am sure the car drives the same with the 18" vs the 16" you just feel more of the road with the bigger tires. I am okay with that. You would never know my car was an "S" w/ App if you didn't look close enough because of the wheels. Sounds like you got a great deal on your lease. I am paying 2x the price you are paying for my lease. I had a few other things they had to work around so if couldn't be lower. I like my Passat now but still unsure if I want to keep it or trade in for another lease when it comes time. If I do I will get the same color in a TDI. It would be sweet to have a TDI one day. My Dad wanted the TDI but did not want to wait for it so he got the SE. I just wish I had better seats in my Passat. Seems like I am always trying to find the right seat position. (It's sucks being tall sometimes) I feel like the stering wheel doesn't go down far enough. Idk. Even after the little things I am happy with it.

      I figure after 3 years of leasing making payments on time and leasing another VW they might give me a better deal on the next VW I lease 3 years down the road. Originally I wanted a TDI Jetta or TDI Golf with a stick but I saw my Passat in the showroom and kinda fell in love once they told me the price I was sold.

      Still don't know how I feel about this but I decided to put some stickers on my car from the VW show I went to this weekend. Not sure if I like my car with stickers.

      BZZZZZT! Lose the stickers..

      OK, it's totally personal preference so it's your call, but that particular one...ehh, not so much. What does the one on the left side say?

      I'm on vacation renting a base S (I mean REALLY base, with steel wheels), but it's a pretty solid car. It's a bit bigger than our VWs at home, but it manages to drive "smaller" than its apparent size. Yeah, I can see why a rag named it COTY last year.

      Enjoy your ride, those wheels do transform the looks. Maybe I should take a pic of my rental to make every S owner feel better.

      I may keep them on for maybe a month. The other sticker says #occupybigbear I think the car looks cleaner without stickers. I love the car and I love to show my VW love.

      I'm guilty of a few stickers too. The heart ones are on my wife's Tig, the rest on my Passat (she's got a vw sticker family on her Tig too).

      Very very glad you enjoy your car. We work unbeleivably stupid long hours here at the plant. Its nice to see some appreciation . I or a friend of mine (one or the other) installed and fit one or more of your doors. As far as stickers go......
      Keep posting more about your car. Id love to see any additional mods you do. My friend has the SEL V6 and is looking for options as far as modding one. .

      So today I traded in my 2012 PASSAT S with Appearance for a 2013 PASSAT TDI SEL premium with navigation. It's the nicest car I have ever owned. I feel so fancy in it. Just have to tint the windows tomorrow.

      They're not cheap, I will say, but so worth it.

      They have been discussed here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...ood-to-be-true

      They are not OEM or HID. No one that has them will comment on how they are. I suspect there will be issues.

      I wondered about that. I have some time. No rush. I just like that style the most.

      Well after only having the Rotiform wheels less than a month I traded them with a B7 buddy in San Diego for a set of Lamborghini wheels I have always wanted. It goes better with the flow of the car. Chrome! I liked the Rotiform wheels but not how the looked so black at night.

      Altho I am not a fan of chrome, it's much better than the dark rims. Love the style of those rims. Cool looking.
