Just trying to figure out whether to buy a 2002 GLX 5 speed stick vs a 2003? W8 with 6 speed or maybe something else all together like a BMW 530i stick

Re: W8 6 Speed, does anyone have the real story, as in when and if? (Steve Z1)

Hopefully they offer the V6/4motion with a 6-speed manual also; with sport suspension and 17" wheels also. They can call it Passat GLI (like Jetta GLI)--driver's edition Passats.

The latest I've heard, from a VW trainer, is the 6-spd. should be an option early in the 2003 model year, if not right away as an '03. The thing is I, personally, don't have a confirmation as far as a date is concerned.
I did read something on another post that the owner's manual, for the W8s that are beginning to show up, does make mention of the 6-spd.--that sounds hopeful to me.

Or they could call it the Passat GT...which is what the "sporty" versions of Passats are called.h

Now for the only question that matters to some of us...

Is there a definitive word whether or not the Sport Package, six-speed, 4Mo, and W8 will all be available in Variant form?
