I'm looking at buying a 2007 v6 TDI with 160kms on it. It has had the ECU Flashed and DPF delete and also the DPF removed. Any opinions on reliability on these? Do they give head aches.

Not the sort of vehicle to have if you're requirements are a daily, short distance commute.

The Touareg likes to stretch her legs, under load, towing something etc etc....

Check for the drive shaft support bearing. An expensive piece of repair work if done at the dealership, but cheaper, better alternatives available.

Have you had Touaregs before, or is this your first foray into them?

Details on ECU flash should be understood or is it really only a piggyback chip ?
I presume that it would be a flash as the software link to the DPF would need to be broken/ bypassed.
DPF delete while not what the RTA would like will probably never be checked and a good mod for the car but some say not the environment ?

Read the buying a used Touareg thread - link in my signature.

Then you will know what to expect.
