      Many confuse ennui and boredom.

      Boredom is having nothing to do; which, to me, implies a lack of intelligence. If you're smart, you can keep yourself occupied.

      Ennui is having done it all and there's nothing left. Webster's, I believe, defines it as "world weariness as a result of satiety" or somesuch.

      In this case, there really is "nothing after Phaeton", hence the knowledge there's nothing else to experience.

      Great thread - I like to see your Phaetons ...
      So here is mine: GP0 2006, 3.0 TDI, cairo grey, perfect car, trouble free

      (For higher resolution and more, check here: http://www.localtouch.biz/phaeton)

      Note: The photos are a bit "color enhanced" (cairo grey looks different in reality) - you can see the originals also at the link above

      Sorry about this, it sure doesn't help .
      Host your photos on the net (use www.photobucket.com, for instance) and copy/paste the [img] link they give you for your photo in your text.

      ... an hour ago I got new xenon foglights....
      Most interesting and it looks great! Thought about doing the same. Question: Could you simply replace the bulbs with the LED-bulbs or did you have to add a resistor in parallel? I read that for some cars it is necessary to add a resistor equivalent to the normal bulb resistance to avoid that the car thinks the bulb is broken. An LED-bulb draws significantly less current. How does the Phaeton electronics respond to the LED's fog lights?

      I removed the 6 Disc Changer and installed an IPod Interface, the faceplate you see is a blank DIN 3 gauge type, which I sourced on a European Website. This cover just snaps into the DIN sized hole left from the removed CD changer.

      The connector inside the centre console is, I believe, an external phone antenna.

      Thanx Tim.

      1. The car is originally black. I just got the car wraped in white, but i kept the roof black.

      2. Its written: SOFIENBERG BILSENTER. Thats the name of my company. You see I am a car dealer. The car shop you see behind my Phaeton is my shop.

      OK Thanks for the explanation

      Your wheels are awesome looking with the white. My own preference is to avoid wheels that are black in any way, as I prefer silver metallic look on cars. But, again, your wheels are stunning looking to me. Also, the painted lower valences also make a stunning looking ride. Well done, and thanks for sharing your photos!
