    Hey! My '58 Plymouth has that "Engine Turned" metal decor. Though, the '50s was Liberace's era.

    I want to know how much. Those Passats are expensive enough as it is.

    The DSG is actually a manual, just not a traditional manual, but I do know what your saying. I wish the MK5 was getting the R36 but unfortunately it won't be until thee MK6. Those seats look nice on screen but are way over bolstered unless you are about 150lbs.

    That interior is too american like for a VW. I am sure it performs well, but not my cup of tea.

    The body kit doesn't really add anything to the exterior, if anything it makes it look worse. The interior is a mess. Gross.

    I thought I was the only one who wasn't a fan of the bodykit. I definitely agree with everyone on the interior.
    My thoughts and random babblings...

    I love the seats, and the dash is nice too. I thought the exterior might be more aggressive though.

    I liked the Variant.
    Sorry China, we'll buy your disposable electronics and lead coated toys, but when we Americans want a cheap car with horrible quality, we get a Chrysler.

    I prefer the wood on the regular Passat.



    Other than that, i'm pleased with the additions.

    I like the exterior's understaed looks. I'm not sure about the standard DSG though, some people might actually prefer a 6MT with the familiar clutch pedal. I can't say I like the metal trim on the center stack and guage cluster though...
