      Crash avoidance

      I do have adaptive cruise control and front assist. I thought that front assist only started working above a certain speed.

      3rd brake light

      Anyone,

      I have a very annoying "check brake light" warning popping up in my dash with a small beep everytime I brake.
      It seems that some of the LEDs are sometimes not illuminated but in a sort of...

      When I was not paying enough attention whilst trying to leave a parking garage, I accidentally put the car in Drive instead of Reverse. I was just an inch or two away from a huge concrete pillar at...

      Vibration issues

      Kim,

      I have been experiencing vexing vibrations for the last 2.5 years. Replaced rotors, front outer CV-joints, bearings and propshaft, to no avail. Always after the car had been lifted off it's...

      Will try different fluid to see if the noise changes with that.

      W12 Propshaft

      Damon,
      Thanks for helping to think this through. I am sure the markings were all along the shaft (as you can see partially in the initial photo).
      I now also have an option to visit a specialized...

      Propshaft - The Sequel

      A quick update on the propshaft-issue which I think is still causing annoying vibrations.
      My local expert-garage managed to disassemble the joint connecting the two halves of the shaft.
      It was then...

      W12 Prop-shaft

      Fellow-Phaetonista,

      Does anyone know whether it is possible to "split" the drive-shaft to the rear-axle?

    16. Mittellager (rubber mounted bearing at the center of the rear-drive axle)

      In the ongoing 2-year quest for the cause of annoying vibrations we found quite severe play in the rubber-mounting of the bearing in the center of the rear-cardan.

      Does anyone have any experience...

      Driving with both front shaft removed

      Still struggling with vibration-issues, today we removed both front-drive-shaft to see whether they contribute to the distasteful vibration.

      To look into the shudder/vibrations I left the parking brake off (chocks!) to be able to wiggle the wheel around a bit to check the bearings.
