Is that based on a Passat, or a Jetta?

I owned a '59 Rambler American 2-DR wagon. It was green and loads of fun. The thing was built incredibly well and super reliable in all conditions. Mine didn't look quite this good but you get the idea...

Passat.

If you look under the hood all the parts have VAG stamped on them.

"Dang,

we've been looking for a 5-spd '00-'02 3 series wagon for a couple months now, all we've found is salvage titled rigs.

I found the 3-series to be MUCH more fun to drive than the 5s - they feel much sportier with their lighter weight/tighter track.

Blame MaddBrit"

I found an '05 X3 2.5 6 speed for my dad at at Sterling BMW. Very nice shape, 40k mi., black/black, only a couple of options. $17,000 out the door (incl. all taxes, tags, fees)

My bambied '01 525i 5 speed wagon was in the Washington Post classified. OK shape, 140k mi., all records, blue/ tan, lots of options. $8800.

The new to me '01 325xi 5 speed wagon was on the New York city craigslist. Just happened to see it a couple of hours after it was posted. Very nice shape, BMWCCA member owned (Zymoled to death), red/tan, sport package, heated seats, 60k mi. $13,250.

All these were in the last 2 years.

Also a non BMW wagon:

At the local P car dealer - an '01 Porsche Boxster 5 speed, very nice shape, all records, heated seats, leather, cruise, blue/tan, 39k mi., with a 4 year/100k mi. drivetrain warranty (took a lot of the horror story engine failure worry out of it). $15,250 out the door.

So the cars we want are out there but you have to actively keep looking - even in some unlikely places.

If you don't already know - Goggle "searchtempest" which lets you search multiple craigslist cities.

PS - There are a couple of 3 series 5 speed wagons on Autotrader now see:

They are selling some really nice wagons in Europe now, sure wish we could get these here.

Peugeot 407 wagon I like a lot.

No back seat.
