so i started a new job today and was at lunch with some coworkers and the topic of cars came up. i said that my car was in the shop with its engine in pieces.

one guy said what is it?
i said a VW...
a passat? he asked.
i said yeah...
a W8???
i was like, uh, yeah...?
he said I'VE GOT ONE TOO!!!

sure enough, after lunch he showed me his pacific blue W8 in the parking deck!

what are the odds?

Awesome!!

Too bad he "knew" it must be a W8 getting its engine pulled, though... what's his maintenance history?

I've been recruiting of late - sadly most of them with problems.

When my car was in for three weeks, I met a salesman at Westside VW when I was looking at a 2008 3.6 4Motion wagon.
Turned out he has a W8.
When I mentioned mine was in for cam adjuster work, he cringed.
