This 2004 VW Phaeton was our first Phaeton we’ve ever dismantled. It’s Volkswagen’s version of the Audi A8. It’s full of luxury features and plenty of room for all passengers. Just some of the options this vehicle had: HID headlights, Volkswagen 4MOTION (AWD) system, air suspension, auto (rain sensing) windshield wipers, massage and cooled front seats, etc.
The pricing invoice on this vehicle was $59,276.
This Phaeton was involved in a front end collision, but had over 600+ good (tested) parts.
This brilliant black 2004 Audi A8L (D3) had around 185k miles when we got it in the shop. The total number of good parts we salvaged off this car was 539. Just some of the options it had were memory mirrors and seats, AWD (Quattro), air suspension, high gloss (vavona wood) trim, HID headlights, and park assist. The MSRP on this vehicle was $68,500.
Even though this A8 was involved in a collision it still had plenty of good used parts that were tested.
The 2004 A8 was the first year of the D3 platform in the United States. The A8L provides more legroom for the rear passengers compared to the standard A8.
