Georg, you're 100% WRONG.

Car and Driver got 7.6 second 0-60 for the 2003 Passat 1.8t tiptronic and 16.1 1/4 mile at 89.5 mph.
Car and Driver is a MUCH more reliable source than some guy named Georg.

This is the facelifted version aka b5.5.
In North America they're the 2001.5-2005 models with the 170bhp 1.8t engine.

All 2000 1.8 T Volkswagens have 150 horsepower, at least all the ones sold in America.

The Passat 1.8T has 150hp/210nm, the Passat V5 (2.3L Inline 5-cylinder) has 170hp/225nm!

And 7.6s 0-100km/h is not correct either, around 9.0-9.5s is more truthful!

I have 2 laptimes for this car, but the tracks aren't listed on here. How do you add tracks on here? This car ran Alabama International Motor Speedway (Talladega)
Talladega, Alabama
2.66 Miles. It got 131.8 on the first lap and 121.3 on the second lap.

Is there any way to fix the typos on the page?
The car weighs 3320 lbs not kg.
The car also has 166 ft/lbs of torque not 166nm.

The 0-100km/h time is actually unkonwn. The 0-60mph time with the 5 speed tiptronic transmission is 7.6 seconds. The car also has 166 ft/lbs of torque from 1900-5000 RPM. The toque listing is a typo on the page.
Here\'s the Car and Driver Test Results.
