      4) Beats most motorcycles at traffic lights (yes!)
      5) The W12 is so heavy...

      I wouldn't know as I haven't managed to get it up to real speed yet. Darn traffic stopped me at 285 km/h on the Autobahn (177 mph). I have to concur, though; that speed was a non-event.

      I have changed two bearings on my 2008 V6TDI and two on my 2006 W12. They come as a complete hub with four bolts that hold them in place. The only downside is that you need a four-wheel alignment...
