Phaeton was a Halo car that represented what VW was capable of, from an era when they had an identity crisis, putting the w12 in Passats.    Phaeton compares, arguably to top trim MB S class amiright? what VW and MB does with the rest of their models is what creates their brand identity.

^tl:dr idfnl?
ive got a 2008 2.0t, they tweaked the engine a bit mid-year, timing chain and a few other hiccups got fixed. nothing revolutionary but I like it alot, pity they took it out of the newest gen Passat.  3.6 4motion would be a contender but thats been offered less and less til now its just a top trim in the CC and that point I'd rather have the Audi AWD and not the haldex.   ...I wonder if Id be madly in love with the other German cars if I hadnt grown up in the snow...

haha, has anyone driven an acura recently? i sat in some at the car show, nicely equipped, decent looking but rather boring and hard to have a full impression without taking it for a ride. The Equus was right next to the Acura display and that stole my attention.
"you wake up in your luxury bed and get out of your luxury sheets and get into you luxury shower.......then you get into your luxury car and it makes it all not seem so luxurious." Pair with pictures of modern home and fancy coffee maker and LED headlights. felt more like social commentary then an advertisement.
I haven't posted here in a bit. Put down deposit for all new appliances, kitchen is demo'ed down to studs, floors are bare, electricians have been in for a week and will be there all this week. knob & tube and more recent shady electric work is being replaced with proper, professionally installed electric. Feels great.  Dug a trench to the garage to get that powered, too.  Purchasing lighting and plumbing fixtures for new powder room and kitchen. Plumbing, hardwood...
