      Black GP0 spotted going east on Westburn Road, Aberdeen at about half 11 yesterday morning. It had the number plate M33 YUK, which would seem more appropriate on the front bumper of any model in the current Lexus range...

      5.0 V10 in Ashford, Kent (UK) the other day. Registration plate is apparently Hungarian.

      Looked like it was a nice spec with individual interior.

      First time I've ever seen roof bars on a Phaeton!

      I've only ever seen it once before. Apparently it's only possible on the SWB models, which is what I have. I really want to find some for a sensible price, but no luck so far.

      On the topic of this thread though, I've gone months now without seeing another Phaeton. Last one I saw was a well used black 2009 up at Heathrow T5 long stay back in February!

      Yes. My LWB doesn't have the slots for them but my SWB does. In fact, I'm not completely sure that they were fitted to the SWB for its entire production run? I think it may only be the early ones.

      I've got a 2008 on a UK 58 registration, and mine has the roof slots. Although I've not worked out how to open the little plastic covers to access them!

      I think from memory they open with a little tool that comes with the roof rack. But it's only a thin flat probe - like a feeler gauge. A tiny screwdriver would probably work. I think they are hinged on the inboard side - so you flick them open from the outside edge. I owned a set for a few years... but never used them in anger. Just put them one once to check they were all there etc. I bought them off a forum member... and sold them on to a forum member. No use with a long wheelbag.

      I think all SWBs have them - from start to end of production run.

      3.0 V6 TDI LWB registered just on the GP1/GP2 changeover period. I didn't venture close enough to notice it being an LWB but that's what the reg lookup says. Spotted in the haar of Stonehaven Harbour car park at 1pm yesterday.



      Here it is framed by another Phaeton's C-pillar and boot

      A friend spotted a Dark Grey GP0 in Cambridge last week, I then saw what might be the same car on a driveway on Hills Road - anyone?

      He was so surprised he banged his phone out and took a pic for me!

      Black GP3 with reg MW60KWV travelling North on the A696 at 10 past 1 yesterday. I was in the black GP0 behind you for a couple of miles before you turned off, getting my mate to take a photo of you...

      Anyone live in Le Mans, France?



      Mine is in the foreground stickered up, the other one was French and very nice indeed

      Also, does anyone keep a fancy car in an undisclosed storage facility near Cambridge? I also keep a car there and saw your silver GP3? there the other day
