I'm shocked. Shocked!
For those of you that have not seen this, some years ago, Paneuropean, our (sadly, former) esteemed moderator posted a nice discussion on tinting windows on the Phaeton.
It was not on VWVortex,...
My experience (with two of these yet) has been the opposite - reliable and steady as a rock. I've had one for six years, the other for five.
I do believe that having proper maintenance and service...
Everything on the phone screen is displayed on the infotainment screen. But yes, if you need to change things, then you need the phone's touchscreen. The only way around that would be to install a...
In the US, there are laws that speak to how much window tinting is allowed. These vary by state. In PA, for example, 70% light transmission is mandatory.
Different degrees of light tranmission in...
I lived in downtown Philadelphia for 9 years, and downtown Baltimore for five more. I now go regularly into Manhattan with my Phaetons. I don't have any curb rash on my rims - and never have had any...
FYI - both of my 2005 W12's came factory equipped with the Challeng wheels. I do not believe the rims on this one here are"old style". That said, the curb rash looked pretty bad. This does say...
Why go badgeless?
I, for one, am proud to display the giant VW logo.
I take perverse pleasure in the "in your face" statement that this makes to luxo-mark snobs. :P
I just got my first W12 Phaeton back from the dealer after her 141,621 mile service. Total cost for thorough once over, cleaning out of sunroof drains, repair of brake pad warning light due to...
What, in your opinion, is the main reason to stay away from a dealer?
I've been very happy with mine...
Sad, but not unexpected.
Why jump down 53PL-50AAA-VW611BAN's throat? He was merely sharing his experience. One of the issues with ebay is there are many times a seller lists an item for more than it can be obtained...
I had looked into this about three years ago. While the concept sounds good, the problem is that the infotainment unit and CD changer power on as soon as one inserts a key into the car. An a/b...
I would see if one could remove the clips from the center of the cap and attach them around the rim instead. A little creativity, a little work and voilà!
I would think that with a little effort, the ones I linked could be modified to fit. The size looks right.
Under $12 USD for a set of four vs. $40 each for the "genuine" versions. Hmmm...
Can you afford $12?
These should fit.
IMHO, it would not be inconceivable that an alternate application of the word "crap" would be in the context of how it looks when nice, expensive wheels...
Thank you for posting this. I really enjoyed it.
GM offered a conversion from analog to digital to their customers that had an Onstar system pre-set up for this conversion. Thus, I was able to upgrade my analog Onstar in a 2003 Deville to digital...
