While searching this forum about TPMS in an 06, I came to the conclusion that it was not offered as an option, but I wanted to make sure that mine didn't have a TPMS, so I went outside and checked the stems like people suggested.
To my surprise, I have a metal valve stem held on by a nut. I even have the TPMS in the MFI display. So . . . are people wrong about the TPMS being eliminated from the touareg in 2006 in the US or do I just have a special car apparently?
You get up to SLC much? If so I could get it turned off for you, but doubt any tire shop will touch the sensors to pull them out to put regular valve stems in them. I know one shop I went to with my 04 refused to remove them saying they couldn't by law even when I told them they were an option not mandatory.
