Yeah I drive a silver 2.5 TDI and agree with you one of the best cars i have have, i love it. I have only had it for about 8 weeks after trading in my Mazda RX8 and so far i am soooo happy with it.
Very easy to post pics, when posting a reply click on go adavnced, you will then see at the bottom of the page "manage attachedments" click on this and the click browse, find where you have saved the picture, click to open picture then click upload, you can attached several pictures at once.
Hope this helps, look forward to seeing you treg.

Cheers
Craig

Very Nice mate, I originally wanted a black on but they are quite hard to come by over here!! Is that the Volksvagen DVD you have in the back?

It you go to General Touareg Disscussion under look for a thread called my first adventure should be on Page 1 or 2 you will see pics of mine.

I find it hard to belive they are that hard to come bye, a lot of people take them off as they feel they use more diesel I WILL KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR YOU, I checked out dvd and the name is vzula dvd it comes with remote head phones, so we do not have to listen to FIREMAN SAM god bless the welsh great pictures just had alook before tea some country side and the vw looks well, have you done anything since those pics. The rims are concept 22" on hankooks, venturs a bitch to keep as I have a love of kerbs, its about the only time I have been off road when its on the path. Whats the sea like now, pictures of north sea generally show high seas and larg swells did alot of jet skiing and water sports love the sea it must be hard to find parking at work with those swells ha!!!! it brings a hole new meaning to go anywhere suv my wife tends to drive it during the week I have to say she looks better behind the wheel than me. Did you find that you can move the arm rest one of the little secrets I picked up on this site, will go at fitting new tray tomorrow after collecting it today It dose not look to hard I hope, once I take it out there is no going back, O bye the way what kind of kM PER LITER are you getting yours Stewart

Hi Stewart,

Yeah u are looking at about £300 for a set of silver ones, you see people selling them on here for about $150 but add shipping and uk tax onto that and u will end up paying more. I wouldnt really be bothered if they used more diesel because they look the dogs!! We are not out at see at the moment no work!! we are sitting in Montrose just outside Aberdeen. I havent done anything since i got it but i plan to do some stuff.....Tint windows, rear roof spoiler, new alloys, running boards, roof rails etc. My wife was dead set against me getting a 4x4 as she said it was to big and she would not drive it & now she loves it....she confessed that to me about 1 week after owning it.....haha. I told her she would but she wouldnt listen.
I am getting about 30 Miles to the gallon roughly which im really happy with considering my last car only gave me about 13 MPG.
Ive seen them DVD players on Ebay for £200 they say they are a genuine VW part and the VW logo come up on the screen when you turn it on. Might have to get myself one, but that will come later. I new you could move the arm rest forward found that out a few week back, because i was thinking that it was a bad design having it so far back, i then started footering about with it and walla it moved forward, i was quite pleased.....ooo the small things that keep us amused.
What kind of MPG do you get with them 22" wheels on there? I dont think im going to go above 20"

Cheers Craig
