welcome to the layer cake
I totally forgot this thread.
2008 Passat 6-speed manual
2017 Tiguan 4-Motion
formerly Alpinweiss (Alpinweiß)
I listed it on swedespeed and got 7+ people wanting to buy it in under a week. I clearly didn't ask for enough money . . . but at the same time I think it was 1 of 2 M66 wagons for sale nationwide.
Happy to see it go to another Volvo nut.
I was at a crossroads with loving the W8 powerplant (had a glorious 3" x piped exhaust with Magnaflows on it) but wanting to improve the aesthetics with either painting the lowers or hoping to score a Votex kit, replace the steering wheel with an R one and the seats with S6 sport seats, and realized that I might as well spend that money towards getting a car that has all of the cosmetic details already baked in since with having 2 young kids at home I no longer have hours to tinker with projects like I did with previous cars. Tried to find a 6MT swapped S6 Avant since the belt driven 4.2 doesn't have the chain guide issues that the S4 has, plus the added interior volume would be more comparable to the W8, but there just hasn't been one on the market that didn't appear to need body work also.
Hoping that the new motor that Audi installed in the S4 I just bought holds up a few miles before costing me an arm and a leg.
