Re: VW and Audi will split -BBC news report (turboglow)

Similar to Ford's PAG, this move on VWAG's part has been in the works for a while.

Perhaps Passat suspension tuning will move even closer to Lincoln/Lexus/Buick. I doubt that major component sharing will change much, but spring rates, damping, tire choices, seat bolstering, glass thickness, amount of sound insulation, etc will probably move towards more comfort and silence.
If Passat handling remains at the present level (very probable) , the result should be pleasing.

Myself and a lot of people looked at the Passat as a nice middle between an A4 and an A6. Hopefully the split won't affect design/manufacturing ideas too much to break this concept apart.

I can't stand Ford, they always stick their heads in everything. Those articles were pretty scary. I'm sure everything will work out correctly. I hope the new guy can fill Piech's very, very big shoes.
