RE: VW Passat

I've already had plans on having the GLX with the Tip Tronic in my driveway
by October or so.  I'm waiting to see what they are going to do this fall
for the 99'  Pretty nice being able to use the Auto when you wish and
popping her over to the right and hitting the + or - and doing what you
wish.  Its really neat how it works such as just getting off the gas
approaching a stop light and you see the car down shift by itself.  The
digital gear indicator changes from the 3 speed outo line up to the 5 speed
with just a slide of the shift lever.  Nice design.

PS....nice guy purchased my squareback from Indiana.......made the 13+ hour
drive to pick up the car and tow her 13+ hours home to his house.....he'll
be chiming in soon.....make him welcome.......a  newbie!

72' squareback with sunroof (sold)
72' Fastback.....looking for a home

	 If you are gonna trade in your Type III for another family car,
this is it!
	(Okay, there's my T3 content for the message :)  Matt has been
	the VW family.  In his words, "I now know why you love VWs so much
