I always forget to post these...
Roughly 2 weeks ago I saw a silver Phaeton on 495 leaving Bethesda/Chevy Chase area headed towards 95N....looked like mine but was driven by an older women.
License plates said something like winelady or something. When I pulled up next to her she sped up (tinted windows and rims can be scary sometimes I guess), went I decided to drive off she then noticed my car and beeped and waved at me.

Rick - it was [dark] Blue the one on 270...w/temp tags.
Middle aged gentleman in a Coucou Grey V8 heading west on Mequon Rd, Mequon, WI. In case you are here, I was the guy in the dark blue Audi A8 who waved and gave you a thumbs up. Plate # AJ......

Friday, January 30th, 12:20pm (Korean time) Silver Phaeton driving by Itaewon shopping district, Seoul. Wow. I travel half across the globe and despite only seeing a handful of VWs, one was a Phaeton. I'm taking this as a sign of good fortune.
Thursday, January 29 at 10:15 a.m., Black V8 with tinted windows heading north on A1A (Ocean Drive) turning onto westbound ramp for Hallandale Beach Boulevard. I waved, and I think you did too, but tinted windows made it hard to tell!
Yesterday evening I was following a Campy white Phaeton V8 on the Florida Turnpike in Broward county. Got beside him a few times but could not see the driver. I was driving an Audi A8 and a couple of times followed the Phaeton at speeds of 100 plus! Nice little run!
On Saturday January 31st around 5:20PM I saw a Black Phaeton in my own neighborhood, Circle C Ranch in Austin, TX.
The woman in the passenger seat was definitely looking at me and smiling, not sure if you were just being friendly, or laughing at me wildly waving my arms at you.
I know the car and the owner, but I don't think he's a member of the forum. He owns a collectible car business, but the Phaeton is what he chooses as his daily driver. He's very proud of the Bentley emblems, and says the valets always park his car right in front of the restaurants next to the Ferarris and Roll Royces and no one ever seems to question whether it's actually a Bentley! He's a really great guy, and I think he put the emblems on as a joke, but I don't think he shares most of our perspectives when it comes to "stealth wealth"
