      and it's a soccer mom, or some guy who you can tell just doesn't appreciate what they have.


      Rolled up on a W8 Passat today, and while not an awesome car...still unique and different...


      Woman...on her phone...inside looked like it had trash and stuff everywhere. Probably doesn't even know what a V8 is...much less a W8.

      I know it's going to come as a shock, but nobody outside of VW forums think an old W8 Passat is a "pretty cool car."

      GM's take on "how much luxury can we stuff in a regular car?"

      The Passat W8 is pretty much the same concept and will go down in history as such.

      The Cimmaron is so much cheaper in parts and labor to fix

      I would be a little excited if I saw a W8 Passat. I've never seen one on the road in my area.

      I've seen these around here for sure...I remember seeing the W8 badge, but I had no clue what it was until now.

      A Passat is a cool car?

      W8 is a pretty weak engine too, only 271 BHP from a 4.0 litre 8 cylinder engine.

      Didn't you get the memo?
      Heavy German cars are cool.
      Anything else heavy is a fat pig.

      Truth. My Mom owned one a few years back and thought it was nice and quick. But once the engine started to **** itself, she dropped it to the curb.

      That is because they have to pay the maintenance bills. Do I want one? Yes. Would I buy one? Hell no.......I'd be more likely to buy a Prius or SmartCar but then I would obviously be on suicide watch.

      Saw a pretty hot girl driving the snot out of a modded S2000 a few days ago. Normally I hate to see some worthless cu*t in a performance car blocking traffic with her bad driving.

      Hahaha, true. Most will just think its a POS Passat (surprise! it is).


      Whatever. Its their car. They can do what they want. Its just a mass produced car anyway.
