I got the Excel file from VAGguy covering Passat production from 1998-2005, inclduing W8s. Just click here and go to the FAQ section to download the Excel file. Enjoy

I downloaded it. Thanks.

Well, it turns out that my '03 Tip sedan silver/black is the 2nd most common W8. Most common is the '02 of the same! I pretty much knew this. Reflex silver has very popular for VW and Audi and a black interior to go with it.

So, it is interesting that there are quite a few one-of year and configuration combinations. So does anyone here have one of these unique cars? Like a 2004 blue spirit 6 sp. variant with gray interior?

Thanks again for the info.

Pacific Blue was a cool color and one of a couple W8-unique colors. I had a Pacific Blue on gray sedan among the three that were candidates to purchase. But I could not make a deal that suited me with the dealer on the Pacific Blue car.

I can't believe there's only 82 - 2002 W8's that are black w/ gray leather in the U.S....I thought that would be more common than that.
Get a wagon. Bitches love wagons.

How can you lookup what color car you have? I'm guessing I have Silverstone grey, with Grey leather. The Stonehenge grey is darker right? Only two made like that in 2004. And only two blk/blk 6 speed wagons too....

Oh yeah what is ANTHRACITE mean for interior?
Looking to buy a W8 Wagon 6-Speed to haul grocceries...And I finally found one on 2-16-2008

Silverstone Gray was like a dark silver. I wouldn't call Stonehenge Gray darker but just different; that was the one that kind of had a greenish tint to it.

Anthracite is the very dark gray interior. The dark leatherette available in later B5.5 Passats was anthracite. It almost looks black until you compare it side by side with black.

By the way, the two W8-exclusive colors were Blue Spirit and Pacific Blue.
