Hi guys,

New to the Touareg scene, but have owned VAG cars for over 10 years (currently building a 350+ bhp 1.9TDI swapped MK1 Audi TT).

I've just moved to LA from the UK and picked up a 2005 Touareg V8 as a daily. Fully intended to keep it stock, but who am I kidding, I can never keep a car stock.
My plan is to build it to use around LA, but also be suitable to take to Pismo Dunes camping on the weekend.

I'm looking in to the right wheel/tyre combo at the moment - going to downsize to 17" and go with an all terrain tyre suitable for sand.
I'd love a little more clearance though and have seen Alex Gee made a lift kit which gave an extra 2" of clearance. I've DM'd him but not heard back, so wondered if anybody could help me out with exactly what the lift kit is compromised of. I have a good friend with a machine shop and another who builds lift kits for trucks, so between them if I can tell them what I need they'll be able to get it sorted.

Any info would be greatly appreciated! Pleased to be a part of the community.

On a side note, what's the standard auto gearbox like for towing?
