      In Europe, parking spaces are so narrow that once in Spain I parked an A4 in a garage and could not get out of the car. I really wonder how people with Phaetons, 700 series BMWs, 500 series MBs, and other behemoth luxury cars manage in parking garages and parking lots.

      We do the same as you, two spaces as far away from the numpties as possible, and still someone with a Jeep or SUV park next to you!!!

      Hi,

      19"s look all wrong, think big and put up with the jiggly ride!! Besides the tyres cost a fortune too! Some 21's on FleaBay UK http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/21-BENTLEY-CON...item45f8a73dfc And dirt cheap too!

      How much heavier is the W12 than V10 or a Flying Spur? Mine have been perfect, even on our pot holed streets!

      I always park the furthest i can from other cars in car parks and to date have managed to avoid parking knocks, however it's very true that no matter where i park i will return and find a car parked next to me.......the only word that sums it up for me is lemmings

      Mean money grabbing car park operators, garage builders etc... trying to force too much into too little space. Still not surprising given how tiny GB is and how many million people are crowded into it.

      I once had a garage for a flat that I couldn't even open the door of my Mk 2 Golf in. My wife's Polo wasn't much better....

      I used to be able to get two decent cars into current double (and a half) garage... but now the Tiguan only just squeezes in between the junk mountains.....

      Good morning Tony

      Nice to hear from you again ! Sorry to hear about your bad back.......I told you to take it easy on Valentines Day ! I did warn you that Page 101 was just a position too far for someone of your age !

      ......and I have got that pillow......but it is in Sunny Beige leather. The Factory had it specially made for me.

      Hey Chris,



      I don't get the "Ennui" license plate as far as the Phaeton is concerned.

      Now, if that plate were on a Grand Marquis as per your signature, that I could understand.

      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.

      (To quote Mrs. White from the movie Clue: "Life after death is as improbable as sex after marriage".)

      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.
