Passats - Talk to me

What car?

Passats - Talk to me

Post by blackburied @ Thu Mar 05, 2015 9:14 pm

The french piece of shit is having its exhaust welded then being sold to some other dickhead.

I keep looking at other cars but the only one that ticks all the boxes is a B6 Passat 2007/2008. Have any of you had one? any major issues before I spunk 5-6k on one?

Main issue is unrelenting boredom.

Boredom aside, they are also utter dogshit. I had to drive one from Wigan to London to pick a Swedish band up we put on, it was awful. If you're that notarsed about a car why not get exactly the same Skoda for cheaper?

What boxes do you need to tick? We've had a couple at work and they're ultimately dull but well built mile crunchers.

I borrowed one from work the other weekend and it just seemed to use bugger all juice, easy to drive, quiet inside.

The boxes are really

Estate
Cruise Control
Decent MPG
Cheap on bits
Not french or a datsun

Skoda's are ruled out as she hates them for some reason. I did look at some Mondeo's just the inside really did nothing for me and looking at how fast they had depreciated put me off.Same could be said for the Passat however, Its german and well screwed together.

Thing is....even the name....Passat. It's like 'Labrador' or 'Semi Detached'. They are good enough at what they do and comfy and all that but I'd still rather opt for a slightly older Mercedes E class CDi.

It's weird how a Golf has a great image, yet a Passat has such an awful one when one is just a slightly bigger version of the other.

I had an old Passat many years ago just after I stopped being a poor student and started being a poor person with a career.

Anyway, it cost me £250, it had done 185k miles and the cutch went. I had to change it parked in the road outside my flat in the pouring rain, I was lying in the gutter with the water pouring down my neck hating that bastard car.

It was okay in reality though. Just okay.

It to prove even if you are fat, ginger and a shiny suited cnut, you can still attract the fanjitta easily with a C6.

No way would you buy a C6 ID, they make a Porsche look comparatively well built and reliable.

You'd find me sipping coffee in a cafe in the morning, buying a baguette and then zipping off in my Citroen to piss in the street, then do sex to a hairy armpitted woman. I would get quietly drunk at lunchtime and kick a dog to death whilst smoking.

What are we talking about?

Lol - WhatCar values it at 8K private sale. WTF makes him think a French barge has got a residual value of 50% after 6 years?

People wank themselves silly over the C6 but look at it again. No, look! You see? It's monstrously ugly.

Establish the scene. Point out that you are a passionate man with certain...ow do you say...idiosyncrasies. Before purchasing a car you must ensure that it is suitable for your needs. You are a man driven by your needs. You do not trust men with no passions for what have they?

Monsieur, we must speak about dogs, and about anonymity. Do you not agree, yes?
