I drove an automatic W8 Passat Wagon when it first came out, and I echo 
everyone else's "underwhelmed" feelings, I also thought that it was quietly 
quick.  No fuss, just quiet speed.

That being said, I'd totally consider a W8 6-speed myself, especially in the 
light of my BMW 540i 6-speed being crushed by a tree at 3am Friday morning. 
Ugh.  Not sure if I'm going to get another E39 or not....maybe so.
