Just arrived with us in the UK from Japan is this superb 2005 Volkswagen Passat 4.0 W8 Automatic Estate. We first had a W8 several years ago, a saloon version and were very impressed with it. We always said that the next W8 we import would be an estate though, and here it is.. The W8 is very much a compact luxury car with an 8 cylinder 275 bhp 4.0 petrol engine, all wheel drive and a 5 speed automatic transmission. We found our saloon version to be reliable, effortless, very secure in wet and wintry conditions and with 30 mpg on longer runs. The estate adds practicality and more of a 'Q car' factor. The car we are offering here was first registered in June 2005 and has covered the equivalent of 89000 miles and comes with a very good Japanese service record. It is unmodified and finished in dark metallic blue with dark nappa leather. It has the solar panel sunroof (put it in tilt position on a hot day whilst the car is parked and it gently powers the blower fans to force hot air out of the cabin), 17" 'Madras' alloy wheels, xenon headlights, heated seats (front & rear), electric front seats, front fog lights, load cover, cruise control, power folding heated mirrors, digital climate control, front & side airbags, ABS & ESP. DVLA registration has been processed and an '05' plate has been allocated. Overall condition of this car is outstanding and the under side is like looking at a 3 month old UK example. Our preparation has so far included obtaining a second remote key and a pre sale service has been carried out including replacing spark plugs using genuine VAG parts. The road tax on this car is £295 per year and it is London ULEZ exempt. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with your interest.
