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

      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.

      So the Passat is now a German Luxury Car?

      A W8 is nicer than any American luxury wanna be car. So I guess yes? Personally 1.8T is a better motor.

      So just changing the drivetrain completely transforms a Passat from a milquetoast would be rental if cheap enough to buy and maintain to a luxury car?
      I need to find a base turbo four with a blown engine and swap in the premium luxury car drivetrain that completely transforms the car.

      I actually don't care about this sort of stuff in the normal sense. There's a kid on campus who honest to God drives around in a bright yellow Gallardo Supperlegera. It's incredible what some of these college kids are driving around in. Regardless, whenever I see it I just think "Meh, good for them," and go about my business. However, when someone pulls up to a stoplight in a nice MGA or SAAB c900 turbo or something like that I always covet it massively. People who drive those types of cars have to go out of their way to do so though, so you always know that the owner appreciates what they have.

      The W8 was a really nice motor that suffered from terrible packaging and ****ty cam adjusters (made worse by the terrible packaging).
      Attached to the 6-speed it was a pretty nice motor for the era. The power numbers didn't tell the whole story: a very flat torque curve, lots of low down power.
      It was no where near as good driving with the 5-speed.

      Too bad about the maintenance costs that would make an M5 blush.

      You laugh, but the difference between that and the kind of undersized 1.8T was pretty significant.

      Lot's of trophy wives and spoiled chicks out here. So, the view is mostly pleasant, if not outright tantalizing.

      Recently, I exchanged flirty glances with a Hilton-look-alike in a modded Cayenne S. Then I realized that her sugar-daddy was driving that Lamborghini behind her.

      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.

      Yea, on the original topic I really do hate it because I just look at them and know they threw money at a "car" a means of transportation that they think everyone else will like. The worst is I see more old ladies in the new Mustangs than guys
      Also, there's a business I pass on my way to work and some days there is an 07 Saleen and a 12 Shelby GT500 at the same time, and other days I see an NSX on RPF1s, but I"m pretty sure they appreciate their cars because they drive them a lot.

      What it boils down to is: So ****ing what? Why do you care so much what other people are driving when you simply assume that you "know they threw money at a car"?

      Nothing personal against the owners, themselves, but I lack respect for people who drive great cars and don't take care of them. I've had girlfriends whose parents bought them brand new cars, and never wash them, clean the interiors, or change the oil...don't want to put Premium fuel in them because it is 20 cents more, etc.

      Have plenty of friends who have gotten brand new cars, trucks, etc. and trash them out in an effort to make it look like, "meh, it IS expensive, but that ain't no thing" "just a car; no biggy".

      I suppose that's their prerogative...but that isn't how I was raised...with regards to cars. Keep it clean, wash, polish, wax, rotate tires, change the oil, and so forth.
      The carpet pissers did this?!

      What does a person look like that does not appreciate what car thy have, just curious and who are you to judge what is "pretty cool". I'm sure there is some guy sitting at a bus stop looking at some guy in a beat to crap Pontiac Aztec thinking, boy that guy sure is lucky to have a car.
