      Clearly your priorities were straight and you were focused on making tons of money.

      Lightweight is fine for sports cars on a backroad, but it isn't the same on the freeway.

      So that's why you own VWs?

      G35s are rustbuckets anyways
      No, if you choose to drive a W8 over any other car that is superior with facts to prove it, THEN you are a fanboy.

      And a G35 is hardly a rustbucket when they last 300k+ miles without problems, would love to see a W8 do that.

      There are any number of reasons someone might be driving an 8+ year old Passat. Maybe they were given it by a family member. Maybe they bought it from someone on craigslist. Maybe they got it from a used car lot.

      In 2012, no one outside of VW forums cares that it's rare or was once top of its line. It's a VW family sedan with a big engine, not a priceless work of art.

      Anyone who doesn't care about VWs is full of themselves? WTF does that even mean?

      Read what he said again, fool. If you're going to try and ridicule what he said at least understand what he wrote first.

      Dang ! Alot of have for the W8 in here! I've driven a W8 and can honestly say it is a freaking amazing car! To me a german 8 cylinder wagon with all wheel drive and a manual tranny is an amazing car hands down! Sure its not one of the most awesome cars ever built, but still I dont see how any car enthusiast could drive around in one and pound on the W8 manual and walk away with no more than a ''meh'' on his face, unless he was biased against VW's in the first place...

      Oh, insults from a VW fanboi because I'm not impressed by an 8+ year old Passat. Gosh.

      I think someone left the gate to the MKIV forum open again.

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

      “I’m in the coffee place with the young people, and I’m standing in the doorway just fantasizing about walking around and just hitting their cups to floor, and I see this guy, he’s like 20 years old, and he has the Awesome Possum shirt, just like mine. So I went, ‘Hey, nice shirt!’ and he went like this, “Pfffff,” and he walked away like I’m a piece of ****! And I stood there and I was so mad, I’m just like, **** him, man! We have the same shirt! It’s an unusual shirt! It’s perfectly appropriate to ****ing do this ****! Why does he have to make me feel like an old *** just because I wanna make a connection with another human being? Is his generation just too cool and ironic and, ‘Ooh, that’s lame, older guy, ewww,’ ****ing young ****, I hope he dies. That’s how mad I was. And as I’m standing there, in that anger, I look down and I realize I’m not wearing the shirt.”

      Saying an EX35 isn't a wagon is like saying a square isn't a rectangle.
