Didn't get to do any trails , they were mostly closed. Probably because of the fire up there not too sure and we where heading back down by 2pm so just now heard about that crash. Wow so sad!

Hi there. My name is John. I picked up an 08 V8 FSI Touareg about a month ago, with only 60k miles. I had to fly up to Salt Lake City to get it, but it was an AWESOME drive back home.

So far, I've chopped off the back side of both air intake boxes and dropped in a pair of K&N panel filters. I put on a new set of Michelin's right away, since there was considerable cupping on the old tires.

I starting playing around with the exhaust a bit, to get a lil more growl. I started by chopping off the suitcase muffler. That was a nice lil rumble! I then unhooked the center resonator. WHOA!! It sounded pretty sweet at startup, and a couple quick revs. But driving around, I really felt redneck. So I hooked the center resonator back up. I'm going to be putting in a Magnflow 2in/2out where the center resonator is, and running straight pipes from there. That should be enough rumble.

Brakes are next. I have some Stoptech drilled/slotted rotors coming for the front and rear. I am also going with some Pagid pads for front and rear. I've had Pagid on all of my heavily modified Audis, so I figured I would stick with them. I will also do steel braided lines up front, with some ATE Super Blue when the time comes to put all this in.

After that, suspension! As much as air would be nice, I'm glad I got a Touareg with the steel setup. Far less issues. I would, however, LOVE to put in an aftermarket air setup. But that just isn't in the budget. So a set of Koni FSDs will be lined up, but probably not until mid-summer.

I would like to do a fiberglass sub enclosure in the driver's rear corner. So if anyone has some fiberglassing skills... :) It would be much appreciated!!

A long time.. Bump. I had a couple
Of disasters.. Lost my Treg for several months in two stents, I could have deployed 15 months and called it good.

Anyways - I'm back, and am looking for some mechanical help. I think I may want to get my water pump replaced, and injectors cleaned. I'm shy on taking it to a dealer for any reason.. I don't think they know how to handle unicorns... :D

If anyone is up for some trails, I'm up for it before we go from this perfect weather to hell on earth..

This thread is dead, huh?

Any vehicles in the recall...did you keep them or turn them in?

I have a 2011 TDI Sport that has the Nov deadline and we will keep it either way it goes.

Let’s see if this thread can’t be resurrected..

Anyone up for a meet, Phoenix area?

A preliminary meet and greet would be good to go.
