      Still sold pending funds. Probably will stay this way for at least another week.

      Great! The more feedback, the merrier! Another good bottom line for future buyers/sellers: be aware of the Rashomon Effect.

      I agree that this functions as a good lessons-learned thread. Here's what I recommend for future sellers:

      Document where things stand between you and the buyer. This was clearly the case of one...

      Agreed that this thread could do with some pruning. The car is sold pending funds as of today.

      Michael,

      I'm afraid I am rather disappointed and expected you to have more class. To wit, you essentially make three accusations:

      1. That we had agreed on a price.
      2. That I connived to have...

      I've owned Nate's car since 2010 and the brakes have been excellent. No dust, amazingly little wear. I highly recommend them.

      PS: yes, this means Nate has been continuing to post on the...

      Good conversation today, Michael.

      To confirm on the forum, the warranty is transferable and I'll pick up the transfer fee.

      The Phaeton in the Water

      Here's a fun series of photos of a German Phaeton that was stolen over the New Year period and reappeared two months later in a frozen river. It amazes how good that car still looks.

      Updated original listing (taillight and mirror repaired), warranty scans added.
    11. FS: 2005 V8, Blue, 83K miles, Baltimore - $19.5K

      With an extremely heavy heart, I've decided to sell my Phaeton. I'm moving to Ann Arbor in June for med school and will be walking to school/hospital for the next four years. We just don't need two...

      Squeaky passenger seat

      Anyone else run into this problem? Lots of squeaking coming from the seat in the past few days. No one sitting in it, no massage or heating/cooling active. Squeaks when I go over the slightest bump...

      Repairing taillight?

      I had a minor rear collision that broke some of the red plastic on a taillight (it's otherwise fully functional) and the silver molding on the rear bumper. My dealer says the whole bumper and...

      I presume Libyan Phaetons all still have a machine gun mount sticking out of the sunroof and katyusha rockets strapped to their backs.

      I think the easiest solution would be to do a one-for-one swap with someone's 2005 V8 Phaeton. How many miles does yours have? :D

      OEMplus have both front and rear ceramic pads available here. The page says they're OEM. Didn't know that option was available.

      Also, I'd suggest getting ceramic rear pads as well, if you're going...

      Keith installed my module yesterday, and it works fantastically well. Kudos to Keith for taking so much time out of his day job to fill perhaps the greatest gap in Phaeton accessories. He's making a...

      Grr, just as I felt comfortable with this trim debacle, I come across a similar thread on a German Phaeton forum. As someone pointed out a few years ago, the trim is much, much cheaper to replace in...

      On the other hand, shorter warranty length be damned, maybe I should just swap my car plus fifteen grand for this beautiful 2006 W12 with 18,100 miles on the clock. If I'm not mistaken, this belongs...
