It is like driving a tin can with a tent bolted on, it gets the worst gas millage....12 mpg and there is no room in the trunk.
But all the same, it has been across the states 5 times, and got me out of some pretty sticky situations (sand, mud, water and snow, and it does it without complaining)
When the roof is down and the doors are off, it is the best car ever!
P.S The heater is awesome

IIRC the stealers weren't supposed to fit mudflaps on B5 passats with sport suspension as they would catch speedhumps etc.

Dull trivia...

My b6 is also.

Its so high up it makes a very good off roader. Which is handy, as I often drive over fields & tracks with it...
