Those leaked photos of the Europe-only 2011 Volkswagen Passat were right on the money. The new car's almost as boring to look at as the 2011 Jetta.

The seventh generation Passat gets the latest application of VW's less-is-so-much-less-you-stop-caring-about-them design language, offering a mix of familiar diesel and gas engines for Europe, including the 2.0-liter TDI and 300 hp 3.6-liter V6.

The car will not be on sale in the U.S.. Instead we'll get the mysterious New Midsize Sedan.

DISCUSSION

All is not lost.

The lines are crisp, the curves are smooth. The overall shape is inoffensive, if boring. But that's okay.

Gentlemen, we can fix this. With a few subtle changes that shouldn't be too far out of the realm of possibility for your average Jalop, we can improve on it and make it...better.

-First off, the exterior color is incorrect. It must be changed. Black would be the default change, but I am open to creative color suggestions.

-Secondly, the wheels. They aren't terrible, but they aren't great either. Post potential replacements in the responses below. Keep it classy.

-Third, the bright work. Something must be done about the bright works. There are ways it can be improved upon. Many ways. Let's hear some suggestions.

Hey Jude, don't let me down.

Let's take a sad Passat and make it better.

Let's hear those ideas.
