Hello Everyone,

Just bought a 2016 V6 Lux. Been a VW guy for the last 30 years, and I still drive a 2008 R32.

Hope to learn a few things here.

Thanks.

By the way, my car is considered a "T2", "T3", or "T4"? Often see people reference these versions.

We call that a T4 but VW regard it as a T2!

The new T5 arrives in 2017 but to VW that will be a T3!!

Thanks guys!

Don't have any photos of the Touareg now, but I'll show you some R32 pics... ;)





I'll post some T pics once I get some.

VW doesn't call the Touareg T anything because of the Transporter which they designate with a T1-6. In general, VW is on gen2 of the Touareg. Gen1 was 2004-2010 and Gen2 2011-Present. On the forums, we call T1, 2004-2006; T2, 2007-2010; T3, 2011-2014; T4, 2015-Present.

Thank you! And thank you for all the responses.

Finally got to drive the "T4" this weekend. I am impressed by its handling, being so big and all. It felt like driving a big sedan, not an SUV. The brakes (was one of the biggest reason why I bought the T4) were really good, for such big car. Love those Brembo fixed calipers!

Back to driving the R32 for the weekdays. Oh man... the acceleration and the handling...
