    VW, Passat TDI GLS, 2004
    NC Mountains
    Trans swap, 6 M, Geared BS, Stage 2 chip, W 8 leather seats
    I'm sure many on this forum have owned more, but I've had a few. I started this obsession in 1998 with the purchase of an A3 Jetta, 5 M. I was hooked! The rest are listed below.

    2000 NB, 5M. Still have this one with 385,000 miles. Looks rough inside and out, but still going strong.
    2002 Golf, 5M. Misfueled by my brother! RIP
    2005 Passat Sedan. My wife really loved this car. Traded for an upgrade.
    2009 Jetta, 6M. Sold back to VW with 245 K on the clock. Great car!
    2010 Touareg. This was the upgrade for the wife. Sold back to VW with 250 K. Replaced with a 2018 Tiguan SE. She misses the Touareg.
    2004 Passat GLS with mods. My current ride!

    These cars were used primarily for business, thus the high mileage. No better reason to have a diesel!

    That's it, still love them though, particularly with my ~125 mile round trip commute.
