      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?

      Roger,

      While looking through your pics in photobucket, i saw that your nav unit does not have the usual CD slot for the 6 CD's. is this a special unit? could you please explain? just curious thanks

      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!
