Phaeton wanted for ITV programme shoot


Recommended Posts

Dear Phaeton owners'

I hope that you may be able to help me. My name is Tom Maguire and I am a researcher on an ITV4 programme called Used Car Roadshow. We are currently in production for the third series of the show and we are looking for contributors who would be interested in bringing their cars along to our studio to feature on one of the episodes.

In particular, right now we are trying to source an VW Phaeton V6 3.2. Ideally the car will be on or around a 2003 registration but we are fairly flexible.

The item itself will be a positive review of the car with emphasis on the value it represents. These are proving to be incredibly difficult to find. We normally start by going through dealerships and the like, but I haven't had much luck via that route, hence my post here.

For the purposes of the show we will only need the car at our Leeds studio for less than half a day; we record 2 shows in a day and this item will feature in only one of them. There will be no test drives, i.e. the cars will be shot in a static studio set-up. We will be recording for the show (which started airing on the 18th April) all summer but we are really looking to get these cars along to one of our upcoming studio shoots - we are filming on the 6th May i.e. a week on Sunday - and we would love to feature the Phaeton in one of these episodes.

If this is something that sounds of interest to you then please do not hesitate to contact me on the details below. Obviously, all expenses incurred in travelling to Leeds will be covered by us, and we will also provide drinks and refreshments throughout the shoot. Please feel free to bring any friends and/or family along as it is filmed with a studio audience present and, as we like to say, the more the merrier!

I look forward to hearing from you.
