VW Touareg MY05 V6 3.2

Purchased second hand.
Only 35k on the clock. Few bits of trim missing but otherwise clean and straight. Worlds worst tyres fitted. Hard and slimmy in the wet. Will add brand when I think of them.
Added 18″ Orsche wheels to accommodate Nokian winter tyres at 255. Extra inch definitely degraded ride compliance but less understear. Think I would prefer the comfort but understear would have been even worse on 17″ x 235.
Have put 45,000 km on in 9 months and all OK except for gearbox changing down too soon on hill climb and then holding gear too long once over summit. Have been told its an adjustment to FPS ??? Forward position switch. Will know after service.

VW Touareg TDI V6 MY09

Looked at Landrover Disco 3 but already had a 2003 petrol
Touareg so went with TDI version. Great car. Drives much more car
like when compared to older one. More nimble, huge amounts of
Torque. Electric boot open and shut from buttons on driver-door/boot/key-fob was extremely useful. Limited boot space. Comfy everything.
