we just PCS'ed from the US back to Germany and shipped our Passat 2017 back to Germany with us. It is currently somewhere on a ship in the atlantic ocean and due in Germany in a few day. it feels kinda funny to have a VW assembled in the US in germany. To my knowledge, most parts of the Passat are made in germany but put together in the US. The German B8's look a bit different and they have different engine options.
