    Hi All I have a UK spec 2008 V10 TDi fitted with standard 275/40 tyres on 20" alloys. I want to increase the sidewall for comfort and looks. Has anyone got experience of what can be fitted to these and clear the knuckle and brakes? I thought about 275/50s but there isn't much clearance between...

    Hi all, I've decided to sell my 2009 R50. It's one of only two for sale currently in the country as far as i can tell, so i thought i'd list it here before advertising it more broadly. In good condition inside and out for its age, and with a relatively moderate 170,000kms, i'm looking for a...

    Hi friends. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. I certainly didn't... My Treg has a fault code, Intermittent turbo control unit fault. I had my laptop in the car while on the move, and when I deleted the fault code, a slight increase of engine power could be noticed, but then fault code again...

    These are some lessons learned from removing my thermostat. Next up - replacing it! But that’ll be a different video. In the mean time, I hope this helps others do it a little easier next time.

    TL;DR - R50 sucking down coolant now lots of white smoke from exhaust. Here is the long story. Around mid Oct I got the low coolant warning. I filled it and was good for a while. I did have to change the thermostat around beginning of November and DPF around Thanksgiving. Then in beginning of...

    Hi. My Treg started to manifest some problems with the left hand side turbocharger. Some times it just cuts both of the turbos, only because of the No.2 turbo faulty code, and when it is an active error, even the output test cant move the control motor. When I fiddle around the connector and...

    Hello again. I seem to have another problem surfacing lately. The engine when starting up, mostly when cold, but sometimes when warmish also, starts what feels like 5 or 7 cylinders, then it grinds its way up one by one, and about a minute or two later all is well. I had two dead injector unit...

    Recently, I got a "workshop!" warning and a P242D code. It suggests an DPF temperature sensor failure (Exhaust température sensor circuit high, bank 1 sensor 3) Before I start tearing into it, I want a VAG COM or VCDS download to confirm my diagnosis of a EGT sensor failure. Can anyone in...

    I was wondering if anybody knows if you can just bolt on the V10 R50 rear calipers and rotors on the regular V10. The R50 front and rear brake setup is bigger than the regular V10 setup so I was wondering if I could just bolt those on for an upgrade.

    After going down too many dead end road before getting a final verdict (bad rings and/or cylinder wall in the #10 cylinder) I'm trying to sell what should have been an awesome vehicle. So disappointed it's turned out this way - sitting mockingly in the garage for longer than I ever drive it...

    Hi, It's that time that any T1 V10 owner just loves, removing the engine for a minor fault. I managed to find some mechanic that wants to remove it, for 250€, the local dealer quoted around 1000€ labour-only. My problems: - exhaust leak from flex pipe on the left side(alot) and some on the...

    Hello guys. I may have had an accident with my 2004 V10 Touareg, and the whole front of the car had disappeared. The engine had survived without a scratch, but I had to buy a donor car, which sadly doesn't came with Parking sensors. The whole wiring of those sensors and indeed the original car's...
