Wow, very cheap. Friends of mine who visit Germany a lot say that most of these cars are used as Taxis. The way the prices are falling in England we might just see one picking us up one Saturday night

In the US the Phaeton is usually eqipped with the 4.2L V8 or a 6.0L W12. Not the sportiest looking things, but they pack a lot of power.

I would love to pick one up, but the potential cost of repairs is enough to frighten me off.
My friend that is currently a mechanic at a VW dealer (who previously worked at an Audi dealer) says you can expect a $1,000 repair bill just about every time you need to bring it in.
Now if the transmission fails on you (which has been known to happen in the '04 models), expect anywhere from a $4,000 to $9,000 repair bill.

Undoubetly, when the price drops low enough, I will pick one up and hope for the best - it's just too much car to pass up.

If I get it cheap enough, and get enough use out of it before anything big fails, I'll just scrap it if the repair is too costly.
