New DD Diesel...
I never liked Volkswagen and their cars until i got this :thumbsup:

2004 VW Phaeton, one owner, 65k

5.0 V10 Twin Turbo Diesel, 313 HP, 560 ft.-lbs. of torque..for now :D

And still gets 20-22 mpg at speeds above 110 mph, i love the autobahn;)

Damn. That's pretty much an A8 correct? Looks good. I wouldn't mind getting that thing on the autobahn myself. LOL

No, it has nothing to do with the Audi A8, the A8 is a Aluminium Space Frame (ASF) construction, this VW is all steel lol and has his own platform.
Itīs quite heavy though.
I think they only sold like 6000 Phaetonīs in state, until 2006, then they discontinued for the north american market

Re: New DD Diesel...
Thanks, but the sad thing is, that my WJ as a DD has to go now, but the fuel prices are going higher and higher and the 13mpg from my WJ arenīt helping either.Plus the diesel price is much lower in europe then the regular 91 gas (around 40€ cent per gallon)
