      It grows on me each time I look at the picks. I think I'm more impressed with the size of your cajones taking a car that costs so much to keep running, and obviously to repair, and doing such radical work to it. That's great you've made something so different from everyone else here, congrats. That's one of the points to owning a Phaeton anyway, in my opinion, being different. For my tastes, it's a little much, but I think it'd be cool to ride in.

      Good job, man. Send some extra headlights my way if you get a lead on some!

      I'm glad you posted pics. Nice ride, and the colors actually work.

      Q: Does the 9" up front and 11" out back fit without any mods, no rub.

      - What tire size?
      - and did you have to do any body mod to fit the wheels?

      thanx.

      They are TSW hosten, I had to buy 4 x 9j from the uk and 4 x 11j from the us, Ive sold the other set on to a bentley owner.
      I then sent the wheels in to be diamond turned over the whole face.

      The ET, now thats a question I cant quite remember, I will have a look next time Im under it, The rear are something like 5 and the fronts 35.

      No they dont rub!!!!! Ive even used VCDS (vagcom) to de gas the system and they still dont rub!

      I will get back to you on the tyre size!

      Thanx for the reply.

      Please check and tell the et and the tire size.

      You have used VCDS to lower your car? How? I am looking for a way to lower my ride with the vag com, but the only thing i found on the forum is how to lower a us car to europe hight. Since I live in Norway, my car has the europe hight, witch is to high

      Could u please tell how to lower the car this much with the vag com.

      if you have the updated suspension after the recall, you can't. at least in the US. But if its still possible with the euro modules you can lower it to any setting you want, just follow the euro ride height instructions and put in a lower number. I can't even lower mine to euro ride height. H&R makes a lowering kit and OEMplus sells one. I've been wondering if i swap suspension modules to a euro one, i can get euro right height. Because US ride height looks like a 4x4 at times.

      I cant find the thread about lowering the phaeton with the vag com. This because of the new changes.

      Can anybody help me to find it?
      Or is it the same way as with Touareg?

      Mine was lowered with the lowering links, cost me about £150 (GBP) and took 30 mins to fit, and would take 30mins to take it back to OEM

      The above car has just been up for sale again on e-bay to quote the seller 'when I bought the car it had a hideous paint job, I have had the car re-sprayed back to the original colour'
