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 :p
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....

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.

I have a 99 1.8T 5spd can I add 4motion to eat regardless of cost I found a donor car on craigslist. Do you all think its possible and what do you think I would need?????
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.
