Good point...I should have thought about that.

They dont make a two door Passat the closet thing is the CC. The Accords stylin is closed to that of the CC specially the 2 door. Also passat is pretty performance lacking with one exception the VR6 model which is rare. I know VW CC's and Passat's almost as well as the 3 series.

I don't understand what you are trying to say. The CC has the 2.0T engine which is not available in any US Passat. And the CC is not supposed to be VW's version of a 2 door Passat. It's their interpretation of the Mercedes CLS which has also been copied by Hyundai, Kia, BMW and Audi. 4 door "Coupes" are popular and the German versions tend to add performance features.
