      Dang it Bob! I was convinced until now that taking my Phaeton to Yosemite was impractical, and I would need to aways take my Touareg. Now I know otherwise.

      Very pretty Mike.

      Thought you preferred the John Deere wheels?

      Can't put tractor wheels on V10.. brakes are too big.

      It has trashed my whole wheel buying plan... I thought i'd be able to standardize on 17"... fits the Tiguan too....

      Patrick, LOVE those wheels!! Very classy!! Are they from A8?

      Stu, LOVE yours too! Those big gorgeous rims make your V10 appear shorter from some reasons. At first I thought it was the SWB until I saw your license plate! How's the ride on those low profiles? What size are they - 21"?

      Tong/Bob,

      Wheels are 21". Tyres are 295/30/21 Continental Sport Contact 5P, ride is on the "firm" side , Handling and roadholding however are transformed. Wheels were made by TSW, I bought mine from a friend who had them on his Bentley (hence badges), but they rubbed the inner arch on his Continental.
      The car in the pic is a SWB! I bought the plate prior to buying a LWB, when I can get a pic of them both together I'll post.
      Thanks for the compliments too!

      I don't think I would change a thing, and when it comes to accessories there's not many. Tried to buy a roof rack for a kayak and VW haven't got one and don't know if the pre 2010 will fit!!!

      Pre 2010 does fit, another case of sh*t support from VW dealer network.

      The roof is done with 3M vinyl wrap in a black gloss finish. Only cost 150 bucks to do. If I get tired of it......I just peel it off with no harm done to the original paint.

      I think it blends nicely with the windscreen, making it look as if the roof was made of glass.

      But this may be the photo only.

      I think I like it.

      "Le Club 1.5P" sounds very appealing - those are great photos! Quite difficult to get right, I imagine!
