    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    Hi all! I've been searching high and low for good 17" wheels for our 2012 (T3) TDI Lux and though that that Ultra Toil 450sbs would fit right up (5x130mm, 60mm offset, 17x8").

    Touareg Reviews

    Mobile Electronics and In Car Entertainment
    My ability to follow German translated into English is usually pretty good, but I cannot seem to get the key to pair with seat memory 1 on my 2012 Touareg. Is there some trick to this that is not apparent from the manual?
