With tuning on the flagship of the Volkswagen brand – the Phaeton – that’s such a thing. Generally is Tuning on luxury vehicles namely rather difficult and sometimes frowned upon. Of course you can also board a luxury liner Wide body kit, chrome wheels and shrill foiling attach, but only in rare cases is this really appropriate. But of course, in the end, that’s the deciding factor personal taste! Yes, back to the Phaeton. We from tuning blog have such a vehicle – even as an exclusive edition and as a long version – in our team and would like to introduce you to it. Basically, the car was already bought in this condition, but we would like to mention what was done anyway. And a few smaller details come from the time “after the purchase“. The most striking feature is certainly that 20 inch large RH WM102 flowforming wheelset in classic Gunmetal Gray.
20 inch RH WM102 rims
The rims are specially built all around in the format 10Jx20 inch ET40 with tires in the dimensions 275/35 ZR20 102XL. And if you look closely, you will see cool ones Wheel Faces valve caps instead of the boring OEM valve covers. And also VW emblems as a hub cap alternative to the RH rim caps. And a look through the filigree spokes of the Alus also shows an in RS blue (Foliatec brake caliper paint) painted Braking system.
A very successful accent. And it’s easy to see one too significant lowering installed. This is achieved by means of adjustable coupling rods and in combination with the Phaeton’s OEM air suspension. Depending on the setting of the coupling rods the body is lowered or raised accordingly. The factory-set function via the on-board menu is retained continue to receive. And that also applies to the automatic lowering from 120 km / h.
EZ-Lip on the Phaeton
In terms of the bodywork, the vehicle is essentially standard. However, there was one at the front Seker Tuning EZ-Lipthat also apply to the field of side skirts was used. How exactly it works and what it is this tutorial shows you that. The small one is also not series Spoiler lip on the tailgate. The spoiler is painted black to match the EZ-Lip and provides a sporty accent on the rear of the Phaeton. And it is also made in glossy black foiling the mirror caps and the roof. With a little one tuning blog badge in the grille (admittedly, that’s wrong) such as Carbon Platethat simple attached with Velcro the visual changes are rounded off. And last but not least there was one too performance increase by means of chip tuning. The factory 240 PS & 500 NM of the V6-TDI (VW EA896 evo / CEXA) became 309 PS & 650 NM. These are of course noticeable in the acceleration and help the six-cylinder to achieve the performance of the EA188 V10 diesel.
