  3. W8 annoyances and W8 vs Phaeton

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Hi everyone! Bare with me, I figured one giant post is better than a billion little ones: I own a 2002 W8 with 116000 on the dial. I got this car to replace me old 1995 Audi A6. The W8 does a lot of things as well, if not better than the old Audi :thumbup: , but there are a couple things that...

  7. Will any Phaeton parts fit on a Passat B5.5?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Would any of you happen to know if any Phaeton parts are interchangeable with Passat B5.5 parts? I've seen pics of Phaeton rims on a Passat but how about other parts, i.e. center armrest? VOLKSWAGEN 2004 - 2005 PHAETON ARMREST CHROME OEM | eBay This ad says Phaeton grab handles are...

  9. Phaeton Window Regulator

    Anything Auto
    I changed one... That is all. It required two special tools; a hard wood wedge (SST T10039/1) and a bent bike wrench (SST T10039). Piece of cake.
  10. Ever wonder why that Phaeton costs so much?

    Anything Auto
    This is why. Enjoy. :thumbup:

  12. Phaeton steering wheel retrofit?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Would it be possible. I have been looking to do a wheel swap on my W8. I don't really want to lose the cruise on the wheel or the wheel radio controls. I noticed that the Phaeton has all of the above in a nicer wheel. Also can be had with wood. Has anyone tried this? I know adding the clock...

  15. Spotted a W12 Phaeton today...

    Anything Auto
    no pic :thumbdown. Guy was going slow as shit in the right lane on rt 283 west. I assume it was to preserve that hard-to-replace engine. At first I thought, oh a nice crystal blue Phaeton. When I saw it was a W12, I was like "Holy shit! That's rare". I told my daughter, but she is 5 and...

  18. Phaeton

    Anything Auto
    Was anyone else intrigued by the Phaeton? The only problem in my eyes was the bland appearance. People should not be able to look at a luxury car and ask, "Was that a Jetta?" But I sat in a Phaeton at the dealership and was blown away by the feel, the materials, and the beauty of the interior.
  19. Facelifted Phaeton...
