Quote, originally posted by nm+ » VWoAs records show something like 3 or 6 of these being sold in the US. So, yeah.
They were never officially offered.
Probably one of the rarer "official" B5 Passats would be the 1.8T 4motion five-speed wagon. Only offered in '04-'05. Mr Wolf used to have one IIRC.
Canadian spec 1994 BMW M3 Euro-spec is quite rare: only 45 were brought here. Kind of makes up for the fact that we didn't get '95-'96 M3s.
Even rarer, the 1995 BMW M540i. Only 32 sold in Canada. Similar to the '95 540i sold in the U.S. but closer to being a "real" M5. The only difference being it's powered by the standard 4.0 V8 rather than the M5's straight six. More info: http://www.bmwmregistry.com/model_faq.php?id=13 Such a stunning car. Here's one of six daytona violet ones:
