Just picked up a Passat SE TDI DSG. Looking forward to a 1500+ mile roadtrip in 2 weeks, I should need way less than 2 tanks of fuel...right?
Excuse the cell phone pic, real pics coming soon...
More pics added. The color looks much lighter in the sunset light. I'm not too happy with the pics though (just the kit lens on my 7D). I might have to take some more pics with a different lens in better light.

It sucks. I have to stare at these abominations everyday, as the VW dealer is nearly across the street from me.
Or, at least that's what I keep telling myself to try to stop from wanting one. Really though, the styling is so classy and that color is just right.
I can't wait for some of your "real" pics. Enjoy the ride, and give us a review when you get the chance.

Our 2010 TDI had a phantom CEL that logged no code. The second time we took it in they had to consult some big(ger) wigs and they decided somehow to replace two of my four injectors even though they were in spec they weren't as "in spec" as the other two.
Fixed the problem, but they said that sometimes switching brands of diesel can cause weird issues (which is just horse-shart) .. which coincidentally we had filled up previous to the CEL out of town the first time it happened, back to our "regular" diesel second time...
If it's gonna be that finicky I don't want it, so we ditched it at 42k (ish)

I like the new passats. They are like a far more attractive version of the new Jetta. FAR more attractive.
My only thought: This car is available in manual. It's one of the only turbo-diesel sadans available in manual. Why did you not get a manual?

Exhaust on the front wtf? Is this completely not related to previous TDIs? OR was this a new design for a while? And what is that container on the left?
Also, double on the chrome strip. Is it missing on the lower levels? it looks so tacked on the bumper.

Car looks great in that red. I'm not sure I've seen one in that color. The Passat seems like VWoA really got it right. I hope the success of this thing leads to VW bringing the Scirocco over here.
