Pardon my ignorance but what does '6MT' mean. Thanks. I''ll probably kick myself when you tell me!

6speed Manual Transmission

I used to never see W8's, but now I know of at least 4 here. I see one almost every day on the drive home going the opposite direction. There is another one in my end of town I see pretty frequently as well. 4 out of a few thousand standard Passats still isnít a bad.

At the dealer last week I saw two others in the shop with mine, doh! One was a gold Tip, the other was silver/gray with the sport package (or at least Madras wheels). Not sure if it was a 6MT, it was up on the lift.
I'm actually surprised how many I've seen in Knoxville, it's not that big of a place... so far I've seen a total of 4 others, one a variant.

edit: I was in ATL last week, didn't see another W8 though!

I've seen a few others in the Fort Lauderdale/Boca Raton areas, but I've still never seen another variant. There's a silver on that I spotted at the Cheesecake Factory in Boca, then 2 Pacific Blue sedans (or one that gets around as much as i do) in Pompano Beach and Plantation, then I saw a black sedan flying up the HOV lane on I-95 just the other day.

I still think the one Passat I've seen yet tho that really made me lust was a TDI 4motion a couple weeks back. If my motor ever blows and I can't get the warranty to pay for it, I'm so doing a TDI swap :)

Squish, If you had told me, we could have made it a threesome. I've been to Seasons 52, with my W8 Variant. Marco
