1999 S80 T6 or 2001 Passat GLS

I am looking to buy a new car. I absolutely LOVE the S80 T6, however I have been very disappointed to hear that the 1999 S80 is a "lemon" (the 2000 model are above my budget). I am therefore considering a 00 or 01 Passat GLS.

I am looking for a car which is roomy, powerful engine, and most importantly fun to drive.

My question is the following:

a) is it safe to say I should avoid the 1999 S80 T6 ?

b) can any one offer some advice and experience with the passat?

Thanks for your help.

You are so right!!! I went to check out the Passat this weekend, and very quickly turned off by it. The driving was...ok, but the interior was very uncomfortable.

Thanks for the advice about the VIN numbers for the S80. I think I have settled myself on the S80...there is no car like it!!
