  Yup, that's quite a change from a bus to a Passat TDI.  :-)
I think Hayden's the only one that has a newer Passat and I think he's 
had the older one as well.  I sure don't know of any reason to avoid a 
'96, '97 version.  They did have their problems with window regulators, 
door handles, etc but then ALL VW's of that vintage had those same 
problems as well.  Maybe they still do?
