Having found that a 2003 (or '02 for that matter) Colorado Red GLS 1.8T 5-spd with Beige Leather and Monsoon is impossible to find in SoCal, I was wondering what was the rarest combo of Passat model to get is in what parts of the US? Does anyone out there own a Pine Green GLS 5-spd? http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif Does everyone get some shade of silver or black? List the most unusual Passats!

Haha, that's what I have! I was looking at a black and a green and went for the black. I don't see too many. Most black have a beige interior, and if they have black it is usually cloth.

I recently traded one rare combo (my 99 GLS colorado red 5sp with black leather and no sunroof) for another rare combo (02 GLS pine green 5sp, black leather with sunroof).

Re: Rarest Passats combo options (katphishcatfish)

I ordered my '00 GLS Variant in Indigo Blue, with 5-speed and tan velour interior. Didn't want leather this time. Had it in my 94 VR6 Wagon. The car came in 5 weeks. Haven't seen any wagons that match but I'm sure there are a few. Good to see some rarities though. Cool beans. -pd

Forgetting color for a moment (since that creates so many different combinations, it's impossible to make a valid conclusion from a sampling this small), I think my drivetrain/trim level combo is probably the rarest:
GLX Variant with a 5-Speed Manual.

A few wks/months ago, someone ventured that 10% of Passats have manual transmissions; my casual observation suggests maybe 20% of those are Variants, 25% (?) are GLXs...that'd end up .5%?

The Mojave Beige 1.8t with the 5 spd is the real driving enthusiast car!!
Grey cloth interior. I know, Blecht!
I actually dont mind the color very much, its easy to care for and doesnt attract attention when driving spiritedly.

Re: Rarest Passats combo options (mulfomi)

i originally wanted a black/beige GLX sedan, but apparently they are super rare, and would've taken forever. I ended up grabbing a 2003 silver/black GLX, which I'm pretty happy with.

Haven't seen alot of Blue Silver Variant, Black Leather, Lux, 5-speed, 1.8T's around

I have seen Silver silver (I think it is Reflex Silver) but I have yet to see another Blue Silver, anyone else have it? I just love the car and the color

Well, red5sp1.8T, what do you know! Are you happy with that combo? I am, though the black is a biotch to keep clean. Maybe one day we'll pass on the street and think "hey, that must be..."

Re: Rarest Passats combo options (think123)

Strangely enough, I thought mine was pretty rare in that it's a V6 GLS, NO SUNROOF, blue-silver 2001.5
...
Until someone who parks near my house (no it's not me) that has the EXACT model I have...! Although it might technically be a 2002+ I guess.
It's nice to know someone else has wheelcovers on their Passat out there besides me....

I'm not sure if ours is rare, but I haven't seen too many like it yet. We have an '03 black on black leather GLX 4Motion Variant. What do you think?
