    We picked this up last wednesday, and it is an absolutly amazing car. It does things that you wouldnt think to do and all the features are so handy and stuff like that.

    Pictures dont really do this car much justice though because they look nice in pictures but once you see them in person it is different, for the better that is.

    If you do a search on google there is a board that is mostly turag but they list like 120 things that are not in the owners manual. good read lots on neat features.

    Wow, check the e-thuggin for a slightly inaccurate spelling that most people would have understood what it meant.

    Congratulations, you're a real man now :ugh2:

    It took its first long highway trip today and it was absolutly perfect and on the highway actually got better milage than my dads A6 that had a 2.8. Not to mention whne you tromp it it goes and goes real fast. 70-90 was effortless.

    Phaetons are awesome. I actually got to test drive one last year. I'm a BMW/MB lover but I'd easily take the Phaeton over a S Class/7.

    Had its first trip in big snow yesterday and worked flawlessly. raise up the air bags and click on ASM and we are good to go. not to mention the 255's and it being 5200lbs kept it on the road
