You'll need the flares, especially now that you are running over 22" size mags. It has nothing to do with the "too pushed in" thing you mentioned. IMHO, when you install 22"+ mags on Touaregs with stock bodywork, they just look too big. Fender flares will make it look just right.
Mags aside, I still think that it will look good with the flares. It's not like you bought some cheezy aftermarket ones. These will look good if painted and installed properly. You will also have something tasteful and unique, and it's still OEM . I say go for it!
Question is if you should install that Caractere hatch blend after everything all is said and done. I'm still torn on that one.

Ive got 23"x11 rinspeed wheels so even if they look to pushed in I can easily put spacers on but id rather the truck had a clean look than look overdone...
if youre interested I can get you a complete kit for $5000
all OEM stuff
I didnt get the r50 grill or emblems or exhaust tips but all the skirting and foglights I did
First of all i just completed front and rear r50 upgrade recently and here are few tips. First before u start taking of parts make sure yoy have every single peace listed
7H0-941-699-C FOG LAMP
7H0-941-700-C FOG LAMP
As far as exhaust tips u have to upgrade to quad tips 7L0-071-910 PIPETIP Because old ones are about 2 inches shorter than the spoiler itself and the will melt your new spoiler within 30 min.
Thumbs up. Good luck. How much can u get me a set of r50 fender flares and are they US or European base?
