Bro, can give a more detailed FR of your B8? More emphasis on the engine, ride and drive please :)

The 1.8 TSI engine is powerful and yet quiet. The accelerator is responsive and with the max torque of 250Nm pulling from 1250rpm, it is more than sufficient for me. The shifting is smooth and power delivery is fantastic.

The ride is comfortable and sound insulation is excellent. The nappa leather seats are comfy and massage function at the driver seat is a nice touch. Initially I thought the stock 17 inch will look small on the Passat, but they actually look nice and not small. I like the look of the LED DRL and headlights. One disappointing note is the front fog lamps are still on orange halogen, it will be more complete if they are on LED as well.

The discover pro head unit is real cool. The navigation system is clear and ez to use. Though the map update will set me back by $700. Stock sound system and speakers are pretty solid. I have the blackvue 650 with cell link battery pack installed in my B8.

Interior of B8 is up market and feels luxurious. Extremely spacious at the back. One thing that swayed me to buy the B8 is the roomy interior. Before buying, I tested 318i, XE, Q50, C180. The B8 gives the most legroom.

Overall, I feel the Passat is the best equipped car at this price point.

It was available in the showroom when I test driven the 1.8. The 1.8 that I tested has plenty of oomph alrdy, this 20 bhp more is alrdy a big step up from my B6.

But I do feel that the 2.0 will definitely be better if money is no object, but it's after all $20k more for 40bhp more and a more reliable 6spd DSG.

I don't need a sunroof and I only wished that I could trade the sunroof in the highline for a 6spd DSG. That will definitely be my ideal configuration.

it's the potential and ease of the 2.0 engine for tuning

the max torque of the 1.8t engine seems to be at the limit of the 7dsg in addition to the potential issues of the dry dsg

However, I think the VW service really su*ks compared to other dealers.

So far, I have worst experience there. Just afraid that servicing will be a pain.

That's why I say my preferred config will be 6DSG with 1.8T, because can easily get 10-20% more with base tune

the 1.8 paired with the dsg is a heaven sent, and tats y its in the new FL A6 too.
