Re: W8 badges (Cullen)

Didn't know you were running a bussines. Guess you're back in the US.
I'm not a fan of rebadging though.

Re: W8 badges (Cullen)

You have to give a better review than just "interesting car", how much different than the regular passat is the suspension lowered, etc...

It was standing next to a "normal" B5.5 and I didn't look at the stance all that much but, I dunno I wouldn't say the height stook out at all, in fact the appearance is quite subtle, I have to confess, it is SO subtle that if I had one I would REMOVE the W8 badge, and it would be kinda like a Limited Golf in its days...

Isn't it gonna come over to that side?
Guess they all are 4mo huh?

Re: W8 badges (Cullen)

I'm in Mexico and they are saying by march-april they will be open to special orders, but nothing is for sure.
I'm thinking of getting either a W8 passat or an M3 close to the end of the year, I know the M3 is a better car and all, but there is a big price difference, besides I'm a little scared of all the trouble I have heard about M3's, even though in the states they don't drive them as hard, highways are not exactly punishing for a 343hp car that goes 75mph.
So I'm interested in all the reviews about the W8.
Was the Interior very different?

Not really as I was scanning for interesting parts that could be interesting for B5-B5.5 owners, I'd say quite similair..
