Parting out my 2006 Touareg
Well, it happened. I threw my timing bely on my 2006 VW Touareg one week before I had it slotted to repair. I knew what it was before I even finished coasting to a stop. sickening. I loved that car (apparently not enough or I would have never allowed this to happen) anyway, after a month of pouting about it, feeling sorry for myself and searching out my options, I decided to not only get rid of her, but to prolong the torture by parting her out. Just got back from Denver with my "new" ride. (2008 Audi Q7 4.2 FSI) and now I must begin the painful task of dismantling the T-reg.
Considering, I became a ClubTouareg member soon after buying the car (2012) and having benefited from much information and advice on here, it only seems fitting to offer up the salvaged parts to my fellow club members first.
And hopefully at a fair price that will please both me and you guys (and gals). I'm also interested in gauging the demand for certain parts by your input via private messages, responding to a thread I started earlier this evening in the "newcomers" section of the forums or any other means that holds within the boundaries put in place by our gracious hosts.
I will entertain any reasonable offers for batch purchases or specific needs if possible. what I got is a 2006 (gunmetal) "offroad gray" factory paint color code: LSTD7U Touareg fully loaded complete with air ride suspension, OE roof rack, Napa leather "comfort" seats, winter package, power everything, central locking keyless entry system, three spare key FOBs, Vavona wood decorative inserts, comfort bumpers with chrome plated strips, six-disc CD changer, DVD Navigation system, complete Bentley service manual on CD with packaging, 20'' turbo wheels with 70% plus tire tread, spare tire, full set replacement brakes (NIB) and a power plant with all parts and components fully intact and functional. (except the engine which has the aforementioned broken timing belt). Its been a great car and does not deserve such a uneventful death. ( would have prefered a high speed chase across the Mexican boarder or a high interest bank robbery. Maybe something involving a ramp and the Grand Canyon hell I don't know.
But, it is what it is...
Thanks for your time and consideration,
