2019 Passat launch - put your car in the spotlight!

Post by Jimi » Wed Jan 09, 2019 4:27 pm

Hi everyone,

Jimi at the Volkswagen UK press office here.

With the Passat facelift UK launch pencilled in for early June, I'm looking to get a full lineup of Passats (B1-B8, with .5s if available) for static display at the event.

The UK media will be in attendance, and (subject to licence checks, etc.) a loan car would be available so you wouldn't be left without transport.

Location is still yet to be finalised, but if you're willing to get involved we can go through the finer details at a later date.

Unmodified cars without significant damage are preferred, as are standout/special models from each generation (e.g. W8, R36, Alltrack).

Anyone want to get involved?

Surely having an R36 would take all eyes away from the new model? It would be better to have a few B5.5s with rusty wings so that you could say, "look at what we are doing now" as opposed to saying "look at what we don't do anymore."
2004 V6 TDI gone and replaced with a 2011 TDI Sport DSG which has gone too.
