Hi,
I realise that VW passat 2004 has some new features in it (integrated turn signals with side view mirrors, windshield heating etc),
but I do not see them in any 2004 VW cars that I saw at my local dealer.

Does anyone know what might be the reason? (are these changes not for the 2004 VW passat models in US market?)

thanks

Here is a list of the 2004 model year changes for the Passat from VAG:

* 4MOTION also available as option on 1.8T GLS later in model year
* New exterior colors later in model year:
o Wheat Beige replacing Mojave Beige
o Stonehenge Gray replacing Fresco Green
o Samoa replacing Colorado Red
o Shadow Blue replacing Indigo Blue

* Wood trim available as an option with Leather Package on GLS later in model year
* New velour standard on GL and GLS later in model year
* New leatherette (Black, Beige, Gray) optional on GL and GLS later in model year
* New style 15” steel wheels standard on GL

Keep in mind, that some of the items you are asking about are listed to appear "later in the model year". So, just because you don't see them now, doesn't mean you won't in a few months. Hope that helps,

Josh
