      Could be Gabriel - but it's not the length of the stroke, but how hard you have to push... so same master cylinder and therefore displacement... but same mechanical advantage from the servo? Or...

      I'll certainly look now I know where... I won't be there next week... mainly in London and Manchester. Trying to avoid the place now anyway as the Hillsborough inquest has made it hard to get in!

      I agree. My only input into this esoterica is to remark on the difference in feel between the V6 and the V10.... there is an appreciable difference as others will attest. After a week driving the...

      Yep - the V6. Inspiration wheels (summer and winter on that one). Wandered out at lunchtime to see if I could spot yours... but can't remember where you park......

      Glad your mobile again!

      Can't fault the logic... 3000 cars into the US means not many per grid square.

      BTW, do you have grid squares in the US? A grid square is a 1km square on our national mapping system that we use...

      I know the US is a big place compared to GB, but 3000 in a couple of years ain't bad... I think there's only 2200 still in GB and they've been on sale for 10 years...

      Not many forums on any subject under the sun where you can appropriately weave in "magisterial"... but I agree it's wholly appropriate in this case!

      I've sent this link to all my colleagues in the tram-infested city of Manchester advising that the most sensible defence against the hoard of trams encroaching on our roads is to buy a Phaeton or...

      Definite mixed feelings about this thread... at one level VW's failure to sell this fantastic vehicle is incomprehensible and troubling.... on the other hand... it certainly adds to the exclusivity....

      Dark coloured pre most recent facelift reg KC10 xxx (I think... it was dark) passed me this morning just after I'd joined the M66 at junction 1 going south at about 0630.

      Anyone here?

      Fascinating. Not quite this bad in the UK. But I do feel like this everytime I see some able-bodied arrogant lazy sociopath park on double yellows here just to go into a shop or use a ATM etc. Why...

      I still try and do this at least once every outing. In two years just had two turbo lockouts... last one was in September 2012, 10 287 miles ago... so I think the approach works.

      A very understandable dilemma.

      I've temporarily solved it by having a V10 and a V6TDI. As Chris points out, the V10 is not a runabout.... it is a good 20 minutes on the motorway before the oil is...

      Love my SottoZeros. Inclined never to buy Bridgestone again. Reasonably happy with Goodyear. Just bought 4 new ones for the V6. Will provide impressions when they go on when the SottoZeros come...

      Nice to see someone else who always parks at the unpopular end of car parks! Motor doesn't look bad in your photo.

      My V10 had a big area of rot about the size of a 2 coin when I got it... but...

      Jason - I'll email you a couple of logs.

      Basically I didn't find what you found... as far as I can tell.

      Can't find the equivalent measuring blocks on the V10 - so like Chris I looked at 011...

      I thought you'd been a bit quiet lately... still, we now know why. Hope I spot you on the road around the NW soon and the ribs stop hurting.

      Have a look at this starting post #19. Might be the same. It's certainly what Gabriel is describing... although the error message is different.

      Beware as my post covers two separate problems...

      Then it must be the same one I've seen parked on Leicester Road.... I have 05 V10 and 08 V6 - only real difference (apart from the poverty spec seats in the V6) is the infotainment system......
