I sense a brand change is in the offing….

I keep mi-eg , in spite of it's age and uncoolness because I don't see anything else that I want .

I could buy an rline , cost isn't the issue , but it would be massive overkill for my very low usage and it will really just be another eg.

I'm hoping to keep the old girl until something really sexy in the hybrid market comes along.

Not sure yet , I am very attached to the R50 and the Touareg brand. But I am only going to get a deal if I don't have a trade. In my opinion the R50 is still the best looking of all Tregs.

Interesting I am getting know the VW dealers that are pretty useless. VW Sutherland would not know if their ar$e is on fire, can't even return an inquiry!

Yeh had a lot of BM's over time as well. Perhaps I am brand loyal? The GS is latest model though, so don't think I'll change just yet , especially not for the Honda.

Too cheap for what it is but it'll get a quick off load. Hey, Mellisa might even be up for it to replace the one she just had totalled. John

Yes when you look at all the options these cars have they are very cheap in the Second hand market. I have priced mine for a quick sale, I reckon I have about $3,000 of extras that go with the car. Have had good interest to date, no board members but carsales is working.

Perhaps there will be an Rline/ wolfsburg edition coming out soon that might change your mind, atleast about the looks Bails

I did hear a suggestion last night that the new 2017 Amarok might come with a V8 option...

heard this as well but does not seem to be true. R50 gone , well is if I am paid for it. went very fast with several offers, so I think existing owners will have no issues. Will be a sad day , sure I will shed a tear.

Finding RRS that I can consider good value is doing my head in ! Paying for options that are standard on a 6yr old car is like getting poked in the Bum with a blunt stick.

Bails I have been following this with interest.
Glad you were able to get a new owner for the blue girl so fast.
Hope they look after her well.
Also hope you keep in contact with us all over time.
Will like a review of the RRS when you have had it for a while to form that relationship. (wont be like the R50 though)


All the best Drag

Drag I don't see me leaving this community in a hurry. Ten years of posting for me.

Have a look at a recent quote I recieved on a RRS blows my mind.
