People must tell us their location . . .

. . . and which Touareg they have, if they own one, before they can start posting.


God knows how many first posts asking for help give no information on the posters location or their actual Touareg model.


Can't these two things be made compulsory when signing up?

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

We don't need an actual street address, but the problem is getting ridiculous.

Just putting in the country would help a lot. USA, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, France, Germany, etc.

Also if people would just put in model year and # of cylinders, that would also be great.

I love the "Hey, any ideas why my Treg is taking longer to start? Is there any common things that cause this?" posts with no country, no engine, no nothing more then that sentence to work with. I almost never reply since everything I would say starts off with either an insult or a smart aleck remark about how that is normal operation for the 7 cylinder engine in Upper Boglarvatastan due to local fuel quality issues.

Due to the new registration system, we cannot add compulsory fields to be filled.

Perhaps in the future once some of the backlog has been cleaned out and they are able to take a closer look at the code again, but currently there is no ability to add those as an option.

Do you mean a Member Map where members can designate their location?

I understand those free widgets automatically detect users IP address, so apart from country even city is known.

Sure....but if I use the Njord VPN service, that is irrelevant.

My city and state is listed under my user name. Of course the only reason I'm really posting in this thread is so I can get to the 15 post minimum.

Listing the engine type also allows members, who do not have that engine, the choice of reading the thread or not.


For instance, V6TDI instead of just V6.


Of course I don't read any of Noobytoogy's thread as he has a "Still looking" engine

MY08 V6 TDI, Shadow Blue, Beige Interior, Towbar, Air Suspension, LED Load Box (not used).
