Looks like spam to me - a clickable link from a member with low or zero posts - I wouldn't touch it.

Report it as spam.

I have had a similar message.

There is a site fault where people with no posts can send us private messages when that should not be possible.

The same site fault exists on www.mytreg.com.

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!]

I've reported the issue to the techie guys.


The sender may be genuine, but then again with no previous posts, who knows . . .

the IP says he's from USA but since he has 0 posts, I wouldn't go trusting newbies and strangers.

There is a definite flaw with the sign up area now if they are able to do this. The whole post count thing was so this does not happen. Site Admins changed something.
