Valid points said by all... However the 1.8t and V6 are both Audi
engines and they are in VW.  Look at the Passat- A4 frame, and if I
recall correctly, an A6 body.  I bet the VW owners are unaware of
this.  Heck the gauges in my A4, with the exception of Volts and Oil
temperature, are exactly the ones from my old Passat.  Vents are the
same, there are so many similarities, its as if the Audi is a "gussied
up" VW.  Just like Toyota with Lexus.
