      Yes,

      It's all about the exclusions and the weasel words, isn't it?

      I guess the perfect warranty in the mind of the purchaser will never exist as no provider would want to offer it, so I've...

      Gabriel, Mike,

      That's a very interesting comparison as I've only ever driven the V10 Phaeton.

      I did move away from the OEM pads to a ceramic brand (forget which, the red ones) and that...

      Thank you both very much for your input, it's extremely valuable.

      My P is a little old for a warranty now but I have another vehicle that would qualify so on this basis, I think Quentin might be...

      I've searched and found a mention of Quentin's mob and all seems overall quite positive.

      Does anyone have anything recent to add o the store of knowledge on them?

      With thanks in advance,

      Hi Gabriel,

      Yes, given that you were replacing all those elements, well worth performing the mod.

      I also think that with all of us there is an element of the "placebo" effect, i.e. if we...

      Very interesting thread, so many knowledgeable people on this excellent forum.

      My tuppence worth is that my braking definitely improved when I replaced the OEM pads with lower dust ceramic pads.

      Frank,

      Not at all, when you've been a Steven for 58 years you get used to it and I've often been called a lot worse!

      Sounds like you had plenty of excitement in Dresden, 2 hours waiting outside...

      Boot could easily be a battery issue.

      My boot had to be reprogrammed after a battery replacement - if it is that, on the up side it's a quick and easy job for your dealer.

      Good luck,

      Best,...

      Frank,

      I think all P owners are familiar with that little "flip" of the stomach when you hear a "him", see a light illuminate or, conversely, when nothing at all happens!

      I'm sure you enjoyed...

      Frank,

      I took my Phaeton into a hall at the NEC a few weeks ago to unload and the remote wouldn't work at all, had to restart manually and couldn't lock the doors with the fob.

      Once outside,...

      Not being a man to give up easily, I thought I'd give the filks at VW Lux cars a chance to arrange a test drive for me.

      3 calls later and all they can come up with is a dealer 80 miles away from...

      Al,

      A wise decision, I feel - when PAS fluid levels are low, you hear a noise and the fluid is not that expensive - a couple of screws removes the cover and exposes the reservoir on the NSL so...

      Hi,

      A few thoughts.

      Mine is 2004 and I've had it for 3 years now and put on 50K miles.

      I paid 12K for the car and, taking note of some of the wise words posted on this excellent forum, set...

      Hi,

      I got some factory originals recently here in the UK and was only offered one version (various colours available, of course).

      They are made from carpet but there is no Phaeton written on...

      Thanks, Chris, Frank.

      To be honest, it's bad export management by VW.

      When you gave dealers, it's important to make sure they promote across your range and not just cherry pick the items that...

      Why VW don't sell too many Phaetons

      I booked a test drive for the V6 Phaeton today via their automated system at Euro Canterbury, my local dealer.

      I received 2 emails from them conforming it, the latest with a request to call prior...
