• The (or one of the) rarest of VAG products in NA. Unfortunately…this unicorn is still a B5 which means it really should be sent to race at Santa Ana…and come what may.

    • The Phaeton is transmission challenged! Either could offer an interesting experience in maintenance costs and/or effort, however.

  • For the money, I'd just go with the car that this was conceived to challenge: the BMW e39 540i manual. Either one will be equally maintenance-intensive, so that's a wash, plus I like the parts availability of the bimmer better.
