Up for sale is my Passat W8 4 Motion Estate. Finished in black pearl metallic with black leather interior.
I imported this at the start of the year from Japan. If you don’t already know Japan is a great country to bring vehicles in from. The general condition is vastly superior to the average car on the road in the UK especially one that’s 16 years old.
The W8 is from a time when VW were really trying to showcase what they could produce. At over £36K new in the UK the specification was very high. This examples includes:
Electric front seats, drivers is a memory seat, both heated.
Rear heated seats
Heated mirrors that electrically fold
A/C with climate control
Digital read out including fuel computer, reads in MPG
Optional and rare wood rimmed steering wheel which is amazing to drive with
17” BBS split rims, 4 very good Dunlop tyres fitted
It has only covered just over 44,000 miles which is verified. Although very good when I got it I have addressed a few things which I will list below:
Carry out a small paint repair to the rear bumper
Had the paint 2 stage corrected and a quality wax sealant applied
Fitted new lower front control arms due to worn bushes
Fitted new discs and pads all round (Bosch and Pagid)
Carried out a service including the correct 5W 30 VW approved engine oil and oil filter plus air filter
Fitted new Heko wind deflectors (not shown in the picture)
I have also obtained a UK spec OEM radio and CD player which will replace the Japanese spec sat nav unit that’s currently fitted.
The condition of this car really needs to be seen to be appreciated. There are no dings or dents and the paintwork is almost unmarked. The interior is also very good with all the leather in extremely good condition. The rear seats and boot look un-used. The spare space saver wheel has never been fitted and all the original jack and tools are present.
The drive really feels special, it makes a wonderful noise that’s just the right side of understated. The ride quality is amazing and is a refreshing change from modern cars. It’s a quick car and very relaxed on a long run.
This would make an ideal second car or weekend fun car, its practical with the large boot. I have done a few hundred miles in the car and on a run have managed low 20’s MPG.
Cars like this will not get any lower in price, I think I have priced this fairly based on the spec, condition and low mileage. I’m happy to listen to sensible offers but I’m not looking for a part exchange. Please contact me with any questions. I’m based 10 minutes from Aberdeen airport and can easily collect any perspective buyer should they wish.
