Denver Area, CO

Hi! I have had my Touareg since early september. Took it off road about 3 days later.

Here it is January, and I can't imagine life without my Touareg! I have a link to pictures and video in my signature.

Any other Denver area owners yet on this board?

GREAT PICTURES

Hey Aircooled,

Thanks for the pictures.... they're great. With you living in the south-metro area of Denver, we should get together sometime and go play in the mountains with our Touaregs.

Welcome Rush! What color is your Touareg and which dealership did it come from?

I have the Blue Silver V8 with all the options available except OnStar.
It was the only one I could find with everything. I'll post some pictures when I get a minute.

I hate to bash a dealer, but I'm still _very_ unhappy with Osborn VW. They have "some" nice people but they did some No-No's that I just can't forgive.

Regards,
Rush

Don't get me started on Osborne. They would not take off their nameplate off of the back and LOST my sale because of it. In retrospect, it sound like it was the best mistake they could have made, for me at least. I bought from Tynan's and it seems to be good so far.

Same here

Same here on the dealer badge.

They looked at me like I was on crack when I told them to take the badge off.

I could go on and on, but the long story short... They took the badge off and put TPMS in my second set of wheels.

Regards,
Rush

Treg Owner in Parker, CO

I purchased a silver V-10 about a month ago and live in Parker, CO.
Love it so far. Only problem is that you can't really hear the rear speakers. If I fade all the way to the back, they work, but just not near what I expected from a 300 Watt 10 speaker system. The dealer (Mountain States) says they are all like that (biased heavily to the front).
My dealer experience was very good, overall. I didn't expect them to deal with me on what I think was their last 04 V-10, but they did.
I've gotten as high as 30.5 mpg at a steady 65 mph. Normal along the same route is around 25 though, so may have had a tailwind. Lots better than my 95 Bronco 5.8L.

Welcome to the Touareg family! I'm sure you are loving the V10. It is the envy of most every owner here! We should meet up some time to do some VAG-COM modifications that can make the ownership experience much more rewarding. Ask TREGinginCO (which I think live near you), he is happy to have the DRL's OFF.

We can also turn off the 'Accept' nag screen on your NAV radio.

Again, welcome!
