Not to put down VW, but I can't see spending $37k+ for a Passat! You're well into the price range of some very nice cars and unless VW did some major changes to the handling characteristics of the Passat I test drove, it just can't compete.

On the other hand, if the W8 is that much better, they shouldn't be calling it a Passat. It's hard to break out of the mentality/price range of the other Passat models.

I'm sure the W8 is a fine engine and the car is well thought out like other VW's, but is someone shopping for a BMW, Audi, Lexus, etc. going to want a Passat?
