This is one of the best cars I’ve ever owned, and I’m sad to see it go. Nothing special, it’s a 1.9 TDi 5speed B5 Passat – common car – common motor – common everything.

I’d got it from a friend of mine for doing an engine swap and it was tatty but useable. In went a half-leather interior from another B5 Passat I had around, I did a few things to it (and added cruise because as far as I’m concerned it should be required on all cars) and just drove it. Another car of mine in the 200k plus club, it was useful and I liked driving it.

Bye bye B5
