We have recently imported a stunning and low mileage 2003 Volkswagen Passat 4.0 W8 4-Motion Automatic finished in Metallic Black with Beige Leather.
A superb example (grade 4 in Japan) that has covered only 59200 kms (at the time of writing) which equates to just 36800 miles with Japanese Service History, full bookpack and both remote keys present.
It drives effortlessly with lots of torque and great traction courtesy of the AWD system. The fuel consumption is not bad either, averaging around 31/32 mpg on motorway runs and about 24 mpg locally, not bad at all for a 275 bhp 8 cylinder petrol all wheel drive car.
The specification is the highest I have seen on a Passat and includes the solar sunroof, electric front seats, heated seats front & rear, nappa leather, cruise control, xenon lights, ski-bag, esp, rear blind. It has had a pre sale service and we have replaced the a/c compressor as part of our preparation.
The W8 engine is superb being fairly economical and with a great soundtrack. It is part of VW's 'W' family of modular engines which included the W12 units fitted to Bentley models. This model is sure to become collectable in the near future.
The tyres are currently Bridgestone winter tyres, as we are in winter I will leave these on for now as this would be a great car to go to the alps in over the ski season (the traction in the snow is superb!). If you want to purchase the car with summer tyres I will include a set at the asking price.
