Being summer time in the northern hemisphere, I suggest that they are all too busy 'out & about' enjoying themselves, the weather and their 'wheels'.

I'm new from Belgium. As a Touareg owner, and VW-fan overall, I'm very pleased with this forum. Good stuff!

I can give you a few reasons...

1. We're speaking quite a lot of different languages on this continent... and surely, not everyone is understanding English very well, not to mention writing...

2. There are quite a few Volkswagen forums in the Netherlands, Germany,.. in the native language.

3. The VAG SUV's Touareg/Tiguan/Q5/Q7 are quite standard vehicles in countries like Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France. You're surely not the only one or very exceptional driving a Touareg over here. It's less of a 'cult', I suppose. And most of all, Volkswagen/Audi as such is one of the most sold brands.

4. A lot of what we see in US (and Australia) is deviating from what we see and find over here. Almost everyone drives f.i. diesels and big ci displacement / V8's / V10's are something almost unaffordable by most tax systems (and the prices of petrol at the station). Quite a lot of Touregs are delivered with 'nothing more' than the 2.5 TDI in Europe.

5. We cannot do a lot with info on US and AUS shop references. Even more, the shops of spare parts and car equipment are very particular, even on a country scale.

6. A lot of people do not use an SUV in Europe for real off-road purposes. It's more for overall safety, bad weather and snow conditions, and (most of all...?) for the looks. Driving in plain nature with such a car is prohibited in a lot of places.

This doesn't make this excellent forum uninteresting for us... it surely is, and I personaly like very much to look at it every day, but I understand the difficulties.

Chatnoir,

'Well said' black cat!!

I was just about to reply in very much the same way!!

Here in the UK we have also got some very active VW forums but this site is still a very useful resource indeed and, like you, I also visit every day to improve my knowledge.

Cheers,
John.
