      Beautimous.
      Although, I find the lambskin seat covers a bit humorous in Hawaii. Cozy I'm sure.

      The seat covers negate the heating and cooling element to the seats.

      I have only seen one of these in real life once (from distance at that). I knew nothing about them til now. I thought it was a dressed up passat or something but it certainly looks good

      But that's not THE Roger Moore, right?

      That colour ('White') is beginning to grow on me... not only on the Phaeton. As for the Bentley Wheels, I'm not a fan... or of the seat covers (Sheep?). But, heck, to each his own. Drive it in good health... it's a very nice car.

      The phaeton is a pretty cool ride. Search Phaeton factory in youtube and watch the first result. The factory is incredible!

      Im shocked to see that not many people have seen these. There are atleast 5 or 6 of them locally (here in Louisville, Ky). Get some exhaust on that thing

      Thanks for all the comments, believe it or not, the Sheep Skin seat covers were locally resourced, it seems their is a big demand for them here. Most luxury cars in Hawaii will have them. Believe me I thought the same as many of you, but don't knock it until to try it.

      As for the added lights on the front, those are INPRO LED DRLs, and they are not something I want to keep on the Phaeton verymuch longer, I will eventually obtain the European clusters which have the LED DRL built-in.

      No. He is an employee of the Department of Defense. Look at the first post where it says "Full Story".

      I guess "old" is relative. I look at Roger Moore first as Ivanhoe, then The Saint, and finally as James Bond. My son thinks that the old James Bond is Pierce Brosnan.

      Crazy blast from the past. Maybe we can get vento dan featured in the next autobiography....


      Beautiful car Roger!

      Roger - very nice Phaeton, beautiful car.. love the Bentley wheels.
      I've wondered from time to time if you're still around Vortex. I remember reading about your 2000 Gti.. years ago when I had a 1.8 Golf, then a Jetta wagon 1.8t, a Passat wagon 4mo, now on my 2nd Corrado VR6. I don't get on the 'tex much these days, nice to see you're still around. Cheers!
