2005 Phaeton is Audi/Bentley indisguise
By bsdtwd on

Vehicle

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

Aside from a few switches, lack of auto chestnut covers on front air vents, massage ac/heated seats all the way around and about $80,000 you can SETTLE for an Audi A8L or a Bentley Flying Spur. The Phaeton is amazing. All the above, with soft close doors, a 270 Watt Bose 17 speaker system, a great manu shift tranny w/ AWD makes it a dream car in stealth mode. Best thing I've ever driven. A True Luxury Rocket. Found a 2005 with 29k miles. Gotta go drive it. Get'em before they're gone. Best Lux Bargain Going. VW should try again with 2013. Sells well in Europe. Bring on the auto bahn.

Favorite Features

Best interior ever. Double pane glass. Bentley/Audi specs and quality and even more on the cheap. Don't tell your neighbors.

Suggested Improvements

Remote start. Not available and impossible after market due to car's complexity. Key must be in slot or no go.
