I just changed mine yesterday,but at the dealer, 2016 TDI bgt new in 2018,so the battery was sitting for 2 years. Why did you choose an AGM battery, the OEM is a wet cell unit? I could have gotten a year more out of it,but the load test showed 50% capacity and I've been stuck before with a dead battery. US cost was $300 + $100 install. If I get 6-7 years out of it I'll be happy.

I suspect my new battery was sitting a while as well, I will be going on a 1500 miles road trip that should do the trick, if not, back to the dealer for another battery.
I think that there are so few Touaregs in our location the chances of a really fresh battery is pretty slim.
