      That's enough to make you...

      I'd like to purchase a Phaeton jack. The Passat one probably isn't rated for the weight of the Phaeton.

      Jacking question - unusual

      I was taking a front wheel off the Phaeton today and the jack slipped, and broke. I have another jack from a friend with a Passat. It looks like the Phaeton jack but an inch shorter. Who knows?
