      Well, no...<p>I don't believe they were "thinking" at all...That was the problem...<p>Just to go back a few posts...When the price plan meetiings were taking place between Gerd Klauss & Frank McGuire...

      Re: Saving VW (GripperDon)

      "Shorting" a commodity or stock is like 'Wimpy'..."A hamburger today, for a quarter next week"...except for the fact that it is a gamble...Or in this case, a "hedge"<p>This practice allows the...

      Re: Saving VW (rmg2)

      Sadly, this is all true, but getting a bit repetitive...There is nothing new in any of this that we have not covered before, in depth, including Michael's reference to 2001...I touched on this last...
    7. Re: bluetooth buttons on the Steering Wheel? 2005.5 Jetta (VWYankee)

      There is an aftermarket set for VW Dealers from AUTOCRAFT (800-336-3998)<br>Ext. # 226.<p>This is the Motorola IHF 1000 Car kit for Jetta & Golf...Just released in September... <IMG NAME="icon"...
    8. Re: Adrian Hallmark conversation (rmg2)

      Rick, I think where I was going with this is the fact that these are generally shared components, however they are tweaked, and that VWAG had the same opportunity to share the changes with Audi to be...
    9. Re: Adrian Hallmark conversation (PanEuropean)

      Michael, with all due respect...This thread is about the PHAETON in the US; not worldwide...And, in this case the tail DOES NOT wag the dog...90% of all of VWOAs problems originate in...
    10. Re: Adrian Hallmark conversation (vwguild)

      Part III...<p>Here is the SPIN part...The V8 in the PHAETON is the same 4.2L V8 that is in the Audi, just as the W12 is the same as the Audi's 6.0L A8...Trannys and Quattro are the same as well....

      Not going to lose this again... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>$.75 v. $1.35...do the math; this is horrific, and not just for PHAETON. The financial...
    12. Re: Adrian Hallmark conversation (riccone)

      G.P.<p>I agree with you...I have been silent about this for two reasons...I started to write, and spent about 60 minutes here...had a power outage and lost it all, and then lost the will...But, the...
    13. Re: Will this the the new Porsche using the Phaeton body....... (dcxmann)

      Actually, they increased their stake another 15%; bringing the total to 20%...the same position Dr. Piech holds in Porsche...<p>I hope you are right... <IMG NAME="icon"...
    14. Re: Will this the the new Porsche using the Phaeton body....... (Kcmover)

      The car that you are referring to is the "Panamera"...An August the 8th article in AUTOWEEK will give you the correct picture, and I would not be surprised to find some PHAETON aspects in it...

      Rick, I don't know the specifics of the Opel/GM/VWAG issues, but "OnStar" has not been available for months...<p>I think it is a German thing...my BMWs are available with Bluetooth bundled with BMW...
