What’s up guys ! So I have been searching for a few days trying to find some off-road upgrades for my new(to me) 05’ Touareg. The aftermarket support for these things is almost non existent BUT I was able to find a website that does a full underbody skid plate kit for the T1 Touareg !!! May be old news to some but figured I would repost it to make it easier to find . Will be purchasing very soon for my new rig. Really wanna get this thing out in the woods !!

Key item for you on your Colorado Red V8 is the timing belt.

These must be changed every 80,000 miles or 5 years, whichever comes first, along with the tensioners, water pump and thermostat. If the belt snaps the engine is toast as a number of folk have discovered.

Read this thread for the other common issues - it may save you money at some stage:


And it looks like the roof bars are mounted the wrong way round! If you haven't got the bars' keys then the key number is stamped on the face of the lock and you can buy them.online from Thule.

Celliicell if are wanting to upgrade to some offroad stuff check out Eurowise and Forge motorsports overland. They have a good amount for the T1 and added more daily.
