2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
The Volkswagen Phaeton is a dream machine, very well thought and executed. BMW and Mercedes need to look at Phaeton's interior and learn what luxury is all about. If you drive the car, you will buy it!. Don't bother driving the BMW 740 or Mercedes-Benz S500; technologically they are not even comparable. The sound system (upgrade via DSP system) is the best on the planet on a car. It is like a disco in there.
The leather seats with massage and air, damping control, sound system (with DSP), automatic trunk, climate controls, quietness.
A voice activated navigation system would be nice.
