I shopped the Magnum pretty heavily before buying my TDI Passat. Drove well, looks great...but it's pretty pricey for the level of standard equipment on the midrange model, and I'm just wary about buying first year production of anything.
The wagon is, imho, way better looking than the sedan...ymmv...but I wonder if we'll see those rear fog lamps in the bumper here in the US
too bad the wagon 300C (touring) is currently only available in Europe.
The profile of the Magnum wagon looks so sleek and bad-ass in the flesh -- I don't like the cheap looking cross grille of the Magnum, this 300C touring fixes this styling problem nicely.
