I'm looking to buy a Black/Anthracite V8 Phaeton.

There aren't that many Phaeton's around (in the UK) - regardless of colour, so you'll have to bide your time and watch the used car section of the VW website, Top Marques/AutoTrader and the Sunday Times.

I think the VW website allows you to put your email address in so that you can be notified of new vehicles.

I suggest for New Your City, perhaps something by Perodua? Remember, the Phaeton is a disfigured thwarted opera star, often played by Michael Crawford, who will try to kill you with a chandelier whereas a Perodua is an inexpensive car, much more use in getting to and from the shops.

Choosing a Phaeton is wise, choosing a 3.0 TDi is wiser especially in Silver/Anthracite. Might I add that having test driven the new Bentley Continental with no head/legroom in the rear, only two doors a small boot and £120000 price tag, the Phaeton from the same pedigree, lots of head/legroom, 4 doors and a decent boot, costing £80000 less seems to me to be the bargain of the century. I'VE BOUGHT ONE !

Drive it in sport suspension and transmission modes at the same time and it feels a lot like a 2002 S8 only longer and quieter. The Phaeton is awesome! The LWB is really big in back - trunk a little too short. Quiet but with a pretty loud exhaust note with the big V8. Full of luxury items I'm still learning about. Park sensors, navigation, excellent radio and interior beats or equals A8. I'm very happy with it.
