    I have a 2005 V6 Touareg, and I figured it was time to change out the differential oil and transfer case since I'm around 90k miles, and I don't believe it has been done based on my prior service records yet. I was looking into many different options and settled on going with Royal Purple...

    I own a 2008 v6 touareg and was wondering what the torque ratio that the drivetrain uses, is more torque applied to the rear or to the front. I know some suv use a 60/40 ratio or 70/30 rear to front?

    Hi all, I am new to the forum. I just purchased an 09 TDI on VW CPO and am really happy with it so far. The locking differential was important to me.

    Off-Roading & Towing
    Hey Guys, I've been pondering the idea of making a bypass switch for my center diff to be able to lock in high range. It just seems like it would come in handy for deep snow and sand. Does anyone have any info they could share on the center diff and controls? (schematics, blown up drawings...
