Looking to buy 2009 V8 with Air suspension with under 100K miles. Would consider 2008 as well but 2009 is preferred.

Good luck with the search. A loaded 08 or 09 V8 is one of my dream Touaregs!

VW only sent a few V8 for 2009 model year, all of them as corporate cars, and they are extremely rare. I used to own a 2008 V8 and it was great. Keep in mind the 2008 model years have power folding mirrors, 4 zone climate, auto tilting R mirror when in reverse, which can't be found on 2009. However, the 2009 has the RNS-510 which is a massive upgrade from 2008. (you can always install the 510 into a 2008).

I already own 2008 with steel suspension. I didn't know they've deleted power folding feature and auto tilting for 2009. My main reasons for 2009 are the upgraded RNS510 as you mentioned as well as being able to reprogram MFD to show the gear i'm in next to D or S and available blind spot monitoring system.

I am planning on listing my 2008 Touareg v8 with air suspension. I have a service appointment on 03March at Houston to fix the A/C and a couple other minor issues. It literally looks like new and drives as one. I am going through personal stuff and need to reduce my toys. If interested you can pm for pictures and more details. It has 135000 hwy miles ( we live in Beaumont and is my wife's daily to Houston as she works for Southwest as a flight attendant).

Thanks but I'm looking for something with less miles.

So you are looking for an 09 v8 with air suspension and less than 130000 miles?
Should it have the unicorn option?
My current non-air 2008 got 85K now and when i bought it in 2019 it had only 72K. I don't think 2009 with under 100K is that rare.

That one looks really clean and got all the options I want. I'd probably be all over it if it were a little closer to me and had at least 20K less miles. But it's a good deal.
