      My car beats that.... at least for the Canadian market... V6 WAgon, 4mo, TIP, Anthracite blue on black: 11

      As far as ALL 1.8T 4mo manuals, in sedan and wagon - they are actaully both 2004 and 2005's - but only about 100 or so 2005's. A total of 595 in US and Canada. 470 in the US

      good stuff.

      I'd still rather the 1.8t 5 speed over the v6 tip though

      So would I - if I could reliably tell the oil was changed correctly over it's lifetime... I wasn't looking for a 4mo specifically when I got my wagon, it was just a good deal at the right time.

      I'd LOVE to swap in a euro manual tranny in my 4mo though.... maybe one day... one day....

      Luckily I purchased the car for the original owner and he had impeccable maintenance records.

      I would have loved if they made them with a 6 speed option for the US market.

      A couple of summers ago, I came across a 1.8T 4Motion manual wagon. The dealer was having trouble selling it; no one wanted a manual. I already had two Passats, one of the guys from Ross-Tech picked it up.

      I got my 2004 1.8T 4motion 5speed in reflex silver a few months ago. I love it! 1 of 42 I believe

      I am probably one of the few that have owned mine since brand new.
      Mine is a 2004 GLS 1.8T with a 5 speed manual and 4motion.
      In Canada there were 230 with the 5 speed in 2004.
      In my color combo black with Anthracite interior there were 23, of that 5 were station wagons.
      And in 2005, which is mostly a Canada thing only there were 15 with the same color combination.
      I also have the factory released specs as far as performance goes and are as follows-

      1.8T 4motion manual 0-60 time is 8.1 seconds
      1.8T 4motion auto 0-60 time is 9.1 seconds

      Top speed in both cases is governed at 130mph.

      As far as other 4motion cars go performance wise.

      The 2.8V6 auto was 8.5 seconds to 60, same 130mph top speed.
      The W8 all were 4Motion is 8.5 seconds to 60 with the auto and 5.9 seconds to 60 if you had the manual trans.
      The W8 were also governed to 130 mph.

      The 130 mph top speed was strictly because of the tires supplied in North America.
      The cars are capable of up to another 20 mph without the limiter.

      If you have to ask this question, then NO, don't.

      It involves cutting out out the floor of your car, swapping it with the new one, new gas tank, tranny, ECU's ect.... unless your donor car has immaculate everything, it would be SUCH a time and money hole...

      (GRIN) What he said. We see that question from time to time; my default answer is usually a flat NO, but there's that one guy who claims to have done it... It's possible in the same sense that it's possible to convert your Passat to electric power, or make it amphibious. As noted, you basically have to cut the rear floorpan out of an intact 4Mo car, and weld it into the recipient; plus myriad other component and electrical changes. All to do a mockup of something that, while middlin' rare, you CAN actually go out and buy. Forget it.

      I agree, cheaper to sell the one you got and go buy a used 4Motion.

      Harold, do you want to sell your car?

    23. 06-24-2013 10:54 AM #21
      or trade for a wagon? I have your same car, but a wagon. 2004 1.8T 4motion 5speed. I'm listing it for sale now.

      New owner checking in, bought a 2005 4Motion wagon 1.8T 5M/T with 138K kms a month ago... had a B7 Avant 2.0T 6M/T for 2 years and decided to get into something cheaper, found it at an auction for 4200$

      It's a GL with leather seats, seem like the only options added were the 4motion and the manual trans, but i'm totally happy with it. But i'm still unsure of the color, i'll have to see what the build sheet in the back says, it's a blue/greenish silver metallic... dirty right now but i'll get some better pics.



      Man I really miss that car! Did some work to it and sold it for more than I paid heh.
