Own a VW for the Price of a BMW?

Vehicle2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewI loved test driving this car. It had the best seats of any car I ever driven. I currently own a 7 series BMW and while this car compares very favorably to the BMW, I have to wonder why any consumer would take a chance on a new, unproven luxury car for about the same price as the new BMW 745I. If this car was $50,000 I would have written a check on the spot. In order for this car to sell they will have to discount it to attract the BMW, Mercedes, Jag crowd.
Best FeaturesBeutiful fit and finish, great dash layout. Seats that massage your back! Great road feel. This car's interior is like a 5 star hotel suite, you won't won't to leave.
Worst FeaturesLower the price. They have built a great car but for almost the same price as the competition. Lexus introduced the LS400 for a price of $36,000. Once it was accepted as a great car, they raised the price to almost $60,000 today.
