    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Howdy. I have been enjoying driving my 2004 1.8t 4motion 5speed sedan. (So much so that I don't seem to have the time to post here. :whistle: ) But much as I love driving it, I have GOT to have a wagon. As you know, finding a 4motion 5speed wagon is pretty tough, but I have seen three...
