      I'm interested in the Tire Pressure Monitoring System controller if you're able to get into the trunk. It takes all of 10 seconds to remove.

      2006 W12 on Autotrader

      A 2006 W12 just popped up on Autotrader for sale in Bethesda, MD. No pictures available yet. The VIN is WVWAK03D068002791.

      Only 30K miles...looks like it started life as a VW corporate car since...

      This has been a great thread to follow for those of us with aging V8s. The finish on my valve covers is just barely starting to show signs of bubbling.

      I have the same oily buildup in the same...

      Me, Too

      I have the exact same leak and would be interested to know what it is. It doesn't smell like transmission fluid although I get a whiff of ATF in the cabin every once and awhile at idle after my...

      That's what I've learned from this whole thing (aside from how to take these keys apart and put them back together quickly). I've always been under the impression that the transponder was part of...
    8. More experimental results

      The plot thickens:

      I put the blade from my wife's key in the fob with the known good battery and electronics from my valet key. The car unlocked and started keyless-ly. This is where it gets...
    9. An interesting experiment...

      Well, this problem is taking an interesting turn. Since I have three keys in various states of dis-assembly, I decided to do a little experiment.

      Step 1 (control): Unlock and start car (with...

      Michael,
      Thanks for your reply. You confirmed some of my suspicions, namely that the car "reads" the key in the same way in both the ignition switch and via the antennas and that a functional...
    11. One Key Out of Three Won't Work With Keyless Access

      An interesting problem has come up since I finally got my keyless (proximity) access working.

      My key and the valet key will open the car and start it using the start/stop button, however; my...

      May I be second in line for the mats if Bill (baby_cota) decides he doesn't want them?

      Best of luck with the Bentley...may some good motoring karma come your way.

      The "illuminated needles--dark gauges" phantom visits my car on a semi-regular basis, especially when it's cold. It's never lasted for more than 5 minutes at the most and I may be high on my time...

      I know many folks here use 1stVWparts for their DIY parts. I have no personal experience using them but they list the wiper blades at $17.82 (plus shipping, I believe).

      I prefer to use Southern...

      I had my transmission fluid changed by the local high-end euro shop and they used a BG brand flush machine to change the fluid. They also dropped the pan and changed the filter at my request so I'm...

      Perhaps someone could tell me if there's a way to adjust the parking brake so that it better holds the car as the components wear. I've noticed that I have to press the engagement pedal further down...

      I've learned the hard way not to rule out what seems highly improbable. If I were the only one to drive the Phaeton, I'd definitely go for it. I'm extremely careful with driveways, parking stops,...

      I put Fumoto valves on my Ranger and my wife's Santa Fe the last time I did an oil change. They seem to be well made and very difficult to open inadvertently. There have been no leaks so far. I...
