      Did they bring 2007's into NA?

      No sure. what you see at VoA has no correlation with reality. There was a V6 TDI Red Bull Touareg racer in the lot too.

      Just saw a V8 Black/Beige in the 411 parking structure off Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee. Say Aye if you are a member here.

      Well Eve beat me to the point. KC to Detroit, Detroit to KC and the only two Phaetons I saw were at VWoA. I almost got to see the TEST track. Sorry inside joke. I was up in Commerce TWP for a MB meet and took some time out to have dinner with Eve and a little site seeing. Great time.

      Just a side note. Saturday the Benz meet turned out to be BIG DOG meet. We took a little drive to Ann Arbor and back. So it goes like this.

      One tank of 93 octane, $68.

      Speeding ticket, $105.

      Averaging 100 mph on the way back to Commerce TWP, driving at times at 145 mph and being passed by multiple V12 Benzs, a Bentley GT, a Ford GT, a Porsche 911 turbo, a couple of M BMWs and a Ferrari, priceless.

      Regards,
      Brent

      Where did you see me?? I've only put 3000 miles on her since December, so I haven't really given you much of opportunity to spot me.

      Once in Syracuse on 690 and again on 90 near Rochester while I was on my way to Batavia. The car looks great and I can tell it is the Phaeton from a mile away. The color is awesome. I kind of miss that car.

      while taking a drive around the backroads of nashville I spotted an either black or blue phaeton.....that is the first one i've seen in america besides mine. I thought it was cool b/c I usually never see the beauty of the phaeton except when its in my driveway....It really looks stately when its on the road....the question is....WAS IT YOU?!?!?!?!

      What I did see.

      The far car, light blue Bentley GT, next SL 65 chipped out, '89 MB SEC (mod)W/V12, stock '90 MB 560 SEC, stock '87 MB 560 SEC, '06 Ford GT 40, '06 MB CL 600 chipped out, me, hanging on and the '07 Porsche 911 turbo.

      What I did not see.
      The two other groups of cars running behind us. About thirty in all.

      If I'd just had the W12, maybe I would have been up there with the Bentley.

      Brent

      In Chicago on business. Today on the corner of Michigan and Superior -- a tall blond woman loading Nordstrom bags into a black Phaeton. Obviously a woman with style....the car was nice, too!

      Rare sighting in a remote location-

      Campy white Phaeton with white lower valences. Super clean.

      A dark green 3.2, with reg number XXI 7350, parked in Finsbury Square, EC2 at 10:00 today.

      It looked lonely parked amongst all the Beemers and Mercs.

      KC to Rapid City and back. No Phaetons. I did get to help someone in a new Passat change a tire at Wall Drug. Guess you had to be there.

      2004 Silver V8 on east bound M-59. Got off at the Mound Rd. exit and turned into an office complex. Michigan plate, last three digits were 611. External cell antenna on rear window.

      You were on your cell, I was the Subaru wagon trying to chase you down (85 mph in a 55 mph zone!) and tell you about this forum.

      Does this work as an excuse when pulled over for speeding?

      On Monday of this week, I was eating dinner at the La Madelienne restaurant in Dallas at the corner of Preston Road and Forest Lane. When I came out of the restaurant, parked in front was a black V8 (a few feet behind it was my black W12). Does the V8 belong to anyone here? It had non-personalized Texas plates...

      TWO sightings today:

      (1) About 10:45 this morning (8/4), black/black '05 V8, southbound on Harlem, a few blocks north of Irving Park. We waved to each other -- you were right behind me.

      (2) About 4:15ish this afternoon, luna/? '05-'06 with tint as dark as mine, westbound on Lake Cook between Arlington Heights Road and 53 -- just before I got rear-ended.

      I saw an 05 Aubergine at Howard Community College in Maryland today. Left a card on the window.

      LONELY HEARTS NOTICE

      You were in a black Phaeton heading west-bound on Forest Lane in front of Medical City Hospital at 10:12 AM this morning, Wednesday August 15, 2007. I was in a black Phaeton heading east-bound in the opposite direction. I waved a friendly hello. You gave no response. Perhaps you did not see me? If this was you, you know how to reach me.

      Saw another Aubergine V-8 on the Baltimore beltway today

      At noon today, on my way to see the new Mr. Bean movie, I saw a 2004 W12 just like mine in the parking garage at Northpark Center in Dallas. I parked nearby. License plate Y64TSP, registered in Rockwall, TX. Anyone here?

      Wow, three Phaetons in one driveway in Johnson County, KS. Ok, one was mine. Stopped by Tony's today to lower his new '04, Antibes Blue. What a gorgeous car. The other car, a silver one, Tony's other car, soon to be returned on lease.
      Anyway, mission accomplished. Hot but a fun GTG. Wish you were there to help sweat it out CHRIS. We will return for another install of a push button start, in cooler weather.

      Hello all, sorry, as I don't own a Phaeton, but I love the car and regularly see them in my area of Dallas (Lovers ln/Greenville, near SMU, and the Park Cities)

      Is this your plate license plate? if so, I believe I have seen you several times in my area, both on the street and on Central Expwy.

      I also saw a blue-green (aqua?) colored Phaeton roll through the parking lot at the Old Town Shopping Center as I was having lunch at Subway...

      Yes, it is. I'm on Central Expressway every day, usually in the left-hand lane cursing at the slow drivers rudely and illegally not moving out of the left-hand lane to yield to faster-moving traffic. Black with dark tint. Went to SMU many moons ago and still cruise through the Park Cities all the time.

      You got me!!

      Excellent! If you happen to see some guy in a lowered black Passat waving at you for no reason, it's probably me. I have seen several Phaetons over the past few years and I often wonder how many of them are on this forum

    35. 08-30-2007 10:05 PM #70
      I saw a black Phaeton today on my way home from work. It was on 101 south on Cuesta Grade. I was traveling north. It was about 5:00 pm. Only third one I have seen on the road, not including mine!
