      And there you have it. The generosity of a fellow Phaeton Owner. Well done. Someone prepared to give up his time and skill to help someone else.

      You could probable buy a whole Phaeton for not much more than the price of these. They look epic though.

      Perhaps a mod could put a sticky on this so people see it. Over to you Chris.

      Mine are a different wheel but much worse than that. You could probably get away with replacing the plastic bit, but you have to buy the whole thing, which in the case of my wheels, is three bits,...

      35 quid? I was quoted 25 when I bought the car 4 years ago, so VW have put up the price of a part which is no longer used in new cars and will only be of interest to people who have that type of...

      I seem to remember someone had a similar issue at a petrol station in Belgium or Germany where some outside electronic force was involved so maybe it will not reoccur.

      They used to say a certain Italian manufacturer's dealer network was challenging. VW are surely giving them a run for their money. They're just Eurobox pedlars, undeserving of a top flight car like...

      Excellent result but no more than you should expect. I would advise people to go to the top when these problems arise. You are after all advertising VWs premier product for them and having to pay for...

      I would argue that you should be put back to the condition of the car before the repair in question and hence argue the value of the car at that point, not its value now. It seems to me that the best...

      Don't know to be honest. Always happens when I return to car on the ferry. Priority is to get off the boat and as I said, once it lets me select a gear, it goes away.
      I suspect that the car is...

      I get this every time i go across the channel. And occasionally if the battery's low on juice. Always goes away again.

      Most Phaetons have two batteries. If you stand at the back of the car with the boot (trunk) lid open you will see a compartment on the left with two little handles. This contains the LHS battery,...

      How's your left hand side battery (the big one) doing? If it's the same one the car came with, then I would think changing it might solve your problem.

      Credit card slot in the engine bay I should think. Or NFC for debit cards.

      Chris (Paximus) is your man I think. Further afield, Ridgeway Reading did my service plan, but my car is too old to get one now, so my local Audi garage does the oily bits.

      So you don't see any Phaetons for months…. and then two appear, in Basingstoke of all places, within 20 minutes. First was blue, with 56 plates I think but no declension markings, turning into cul de...

      I think the World War 2 bomber found on the moon was the Sunday Sport rather than the Sun.
