      Mike, the Inspiration wheels do indeed look excellent... on a W8 :P

      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...

      I often get a "Level fault" after using the jack mode. It's always gone away on its own.

      I'd say that the ESP system would undoubtedly need to be configured for different vehicles (and engine configurations) due to different handling characteristics.

      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...

      I've always assumed that larger brakes are generally only of use when braking from higher speeds since in those situations a much greater amount of force can be applied before the wheel locks up.

      The V10 and ROW W12 both have floating discs with fixed calipers. I'm not sure you'd want to run solid discs as you'll remove any compliance from the system.

      While headaches seem to be a frequent side-effect of discussions about torsen differentials, I think the behaviour makes sense.

      Explanations about the torsen usually mention that it's effectively...

      I usually have problems when I've been driving the W8 since it starts bleeping about 1.5m away from an impact. The Phaeton starts when it's about 50cm away which has resulted in occasional sudden...

      Chris,

      Intuitively, a damper only has an effect on the rate at which the spring compresses or decompresses. Consequently, while a stiffer damper may increase the time it takes for the spring to...

      I think it's very much a case of the dampers being used to adjust the ride comfort in most circumstances since the air system is too slow to react.

      Nope.


      The polytropic value is just part of the thermodynamic equations.


      Not at all - it's tricky to strike the right tone while debating on the internet :)

      Re-reading back through the posts, I was wrong to say that the spring rate of the air springs remains the same. However, what I will say is that for a given ride height, any changes in spring rate...

      Martin,

      Think of is this way: If an empty Phaeton is at the correct ride height and John Prescott gets into it, the springs will compress (due to the increased load) and the body will drop down a...
