Carnet means that the car is owned by you abroad (lets say Dubai). this car can be brought into India (Imported) after paying a Bond against the car. this car can be used in India for a period of 6 months on its foreign number plates. after the expiry of 6 months the car has to be taken back (Exported) to where you got it from (Dubai). These cars are not registered in India as they are not perminent residents. The bond amount after some cuts is returned to you.
The cars imported from other countries (only RHD). have to be registered in India. they do sport their foriegn number plates for a short while till the registration formalities are completed. in order for the owners not getting harrased by the police the RTO issues them a letter that the registration formalities are going on. Two Examples are LOVE V12 and 99JAY FLY. two cars that sport the foriegn plates for a while before getting Indian number plates.

Coming Back to the big VW mentioned here
ITs a nice car but not as flashy as the beemer or the benz but i dont think VW would make a mistake of launching it here.

VW had to be kidding with their expectation of making the Phaeton a success, even at a lower price than fellow Germans: the S & 7. For one, *luxury VW* is a paradoxical statement. Second, it looks too much like the cheaper VW's.
But as Ajmat posted, some great Phaeton deals in the used market. It depreciates like stink.

I think that the car is owned by someone as the number plate suggests. If one is testing cars in India, then they are supposed to have " White in Red " number plate.
Second thing is that VW pulled back this car from USA because of poor sales. It just looks like an extended Passat from certain angles. Moreover with the new Skoda Superb coming, this car wont have so value as Superb will give more value for money and again the C-pillar portion also looks somewhat like new Superb.
There is no point in bringing car so late. Again diesel will make the deal better, but then Skoda will also have good diesel engine in range.

Great cars. Lack the obvious brand image though. Consequently, one can pick up a 2004 model for barely 10 lakhs in UK
