Here it is...the great unvailing of....Jay's new ride!!!!!

We went in shopping for a big discount on a 2005 Passat TDI and came home with this.

Behold, the glorious Deep Black 2006 B6 Passat!









It goes in Wednesday night to get a clear bra (got the dealer to throw it in).

Awesome!
Welcome back to the Passat league!
I spent some time at Mtn States VW and all they have left for the B5.5s were the TDI sedan (about 8 left) and they are not doing much discounts on them, which makes the B6 more appealing (though no TDIs will be available).  Congrats!

Do tell us more -- interior pics, options, your mod wish list, etc.

The B6 by H&R looks very nice:

and combine it with the ABT front lip spoiler:

Thanks guys, I did lease, but I did the same with my last Passat and then bought it out. Took advantage of VWs lease deal right now on the 06's.

In the end they couldn't cut a good enough deal on the TDI for me and I ended up getting a better deal on this.

It is package 1 and is 2.0T. This is pretty mucht he norm for all dealers right now as it is the only model available. Mine also has CWP.

Here are some interior shots:

I know black is hard to care for, but the combo was love at first sight. Modding...ha! My fiance is terrified that Iw ill mod it. That 2.0T is pretty quick so I know I will be okay for awhile.

I would like to make the stockies the winter wheels and get a nicer summer set. But that is a little ways off, I can't bear to spend another dime right now otherwise I will have to lock myself up. :)

Congratulations Jay!

I have seen them on the Mountain States lot and they are better looking in person than pictures.  I am glad to see you are VW'n it again.  If the 2.0T is the same that is in the 05 A4, then you should be good to go for a while without modding.  It is a nice motor.  I am guessing the turbo lag is just about non existent?
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

Hehe, I am definitley TRYING to make that GTG. So much going on that it's hard for me to commit.

The car is great, it is the same 2.0T Audi is using. Turbo lag is gone and this si an Auto, so it is incredible. Per the VW spec sheet 0-60 is 7.4 seconds for the auto and 6.9 for the manual. Of course this is in sport mode.
