mr MPD, i am not surprised to see you taking the michael.... however be wary...
the motor in question is an octavia.... which seeing as it is was made fairly recently, is in fact the exact same as a Passat... the model 'up' from the jetta you always cream over by zee Fuhrer's own Volks Wagen!
of course the badge is different, a long with the price tag.... but we are discerning types and to be honest, i just needed a cavernous boot for my hockey bags.....
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
