      I was on Hwy 24 tuesday as I spotted one getting off in the Lafayette, CA area. Had a chance to get next to him and give [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I just returned from a trip to Madrid, and I did not see a single Phaeton there this time, but I did see lots of Passats and one Bentley Continental Flying Spur. I also saw some amazing Spanish women (but that deserves its own thread...).
      Back in the OC: today I merged on to the 405 right in front of a '04 Mirror Silver V8 Phaeton -- just like mine -- except for the wheels, and that was a first...

      I saw a silver Phaeton earlier this week as I walked along in the morning on my journey to work. It reminded me of earlier this year when I saw a black Phaeton going down the Hendon Way in London on several occasions at about 8am in the morning. I’m not sure if the owner of this Phaeton has already made their presence known on this forum but the number plate was PH52TON and I’m interested to know if it is the same car that is in the press information packs or if it’s the same number plate on another car. The car in the press pack doesn’t have any number badges on the back of it so I can’t tell what engine it has, although no exhausts are visible so that limits which model it could be.

      I saw a light metallic blue one in Walthamstow once. Probably a local East End gangster, I imagine!
      I tooted my horn at the time - he ignored me.
      Charming.

      Saw a silver Phaeton with registration ending OVZ (or similar) on Belgrave Road at about 3:20pm today...

      I saw 4 Phaetons on the 7th July!!! Two were Silver, one was Luna Blue, and the other was a dark green 3.2 V6. My dad flashed his hazards at the green Phaeton, which had a private plate (I can't remember what the plate read) and it had a black interior with Chestnut wood. That was the first Phaeton I've ever seen up close!! We saw it on the M1, I think at about Junction 12-ish? Was it anyone here?

      i saw one last night (july 14th) around 7:00 pm in Alameda (ca). It was coucou grey just like mine, EXCEPT I wasnt driving mine.
      This marks as only the 2nd Phaeton I have ever seen in person (besides mine of course).

      Brent (W126C) and I were driving around the Detroit suburbs last Friday night (Friday the 13th) and saw a 2007 Bentley Flying Spur, a new Ford GT, a 2007 RS4, a 2007 S8, a 2004 Luna/Beige Phaeton V8 and a 2007 Coucou Gray/Anthracite V8 (or maybe a 2006?). Ok, we were cheating, the last four cars were parked up at VWoA.
      The Flying Spur does not have the Phaeton stealth factor IMHO, it's just a HUGE car.

      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.

      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.

      Stephen-
      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.

      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.
      Spotted in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

      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.
