      I'd actually say the Polo comes out of that collision remarkably well. There's no obvious deformation of the A-pillar and, although it's hard to be certain, it doesn't appear as if the steering...

      It's a GP3 so built from 2010 onwards. For some reason it has a UK numberplate form the first half of 2002 which, because of the "VW" on it is probably a cherished plate owned by VW UK.

      Frank,

      Sorry to hear about the issues with your best-beloved. Have you considered doing a part-exchange towards a newer model?

      I may be imagining things, but I seem to recall that PD engines like the V10 aren't supposed to be given the 504.00/507.00 spec oils because of the higher stresses that the injector cam experiences....

      Although I may be wrong, the only suspension adjustments that can be performed on the Phaeton are the toe settings (by adjusting the track rod ends) and matching the camber on either side of the axle...

      I can do better. My P was taken to the dealer for a possible manifold leak. I was informed the manifold was fine but that there was a hole in the cylinder head which would need replacement.

      In my experience, brief engine surging usually happens as a result of the torque converter lockup engaging or disengaging in the gearbox. It maybe worth checking whether the transmission fluid is...

      I seem to recall other journalists who went to the Phaeton launch in Dubai also claiming that they saw an indicated 320kph on the speedo. All I'd say is that it's well known that press cars are often...

      Since the ABS works off the data from the hall sensors on each wheel, I doubt there's any "matching" of it to the brakes. I think the lack of pedal judder under ABS is more of a function of the brake...
