Very nice holiday from the looks of things.

Amazing to see the aircraft parts are still there.

Ven: Thank you, it hasnt stopped amazing me and i only bought it by chance, i originally went to have a look at a mk1 Audi Allroad.

NoobyT: It was great. Im not sure why the authorities haven't ever cleared them, but because it is classified as a war grave members of the public can be prosecuted if found taking any items. Very eerie place to go to and gets you thinking.

Its been maybe 3 months of ownership for me, granted the first few weeks of sorting bits out(about £2k) i did not enjoy much. But best part of £700 was on boots, 250 on an alt, then a little over 900 sorting air con and a leaking cooler. Wiper blades, K and N filter along with head lamp bulbs n bits. Then horn, lastly oil and filter. I priced up buying the oil/filt to do myself, for 8L it was £72, plus filter and crush washer we we near £85. Local specialist £75 and no messing around for me and taking the oil away. Its certainly one of the nicest cars i have driven, smooth, quick, comfy. Auto seems to work perfect with the diesel v6, always in the power band. Mine is a little over 10yrs old, for the money and 4wd, i still think one of the best choices(guess i would say that ) around that age (bang for buck). Of course repairs are still on a 50-60k car which hurts. One can not have everything haha.

I looked at the allroad, but test drove the a6 avant quattro s-line which was very nice. Only reason i did not end up with it, was down to it being a 2.7 and wanted the 3L unit. Real nice drive, that kind of pushed me towards the Treg. Little more presence, good boot which was not too high for the dog to get in(Q7 for example is quite high and would be a pita............and we all know about audi drivers lol).

Hope you keep enjoying and proves a good bus for you :)

Yeah i had been looking for a long while for a replacement for my 5 series. Range rover L322 with the bmw straight 6 diesel but they are so under powered, looked at Q7 but didnt like the drug dealer image it gave off lol, X5 same image and as i found out on a test drive useless offroad. I have always liked the allroads went to view one and the Touareg was tucked in a corner not even prepped for sale it had only just been traded in and knew it was the car i wanted.
5 months into ownership and don't regret buying it. Its so comfy, fast like you say when you want it to be, as it turns out a bit of a capable b road hack after our holiday to Scotland B) Mines a few years older than yours and has 130k but only done a couple of jobs on it. It has a couple of scuffs on the bumpers previous owner misjudging how big it is.
I love how much of a tar-dis it is inside with the seats folded no more hiring a van now when needing to pick up furniture :D

Good stuff, perfect motor for jaunts up Scotland, everything in its stride. Effortless on hills , makes it a pleasure to drive. I went through similar also, ruled out x5 pretty quick after looking through a few MOT's of ones listed. So many fails on all of them, all similar types and not just a tyre or bulb! RR was very close, i wanted the 3.6 which was pushing up more than i wanted to pay tbh. The Q7 i kind of like, but dont need or want 7 seats and audi drivers are the worst. Mondeo man moved to bmw, then to audi!! Also from a little research, more issues with the Q7 elecs.......no doubt even more costly than a Treg. I much prefer the Treg looks and design over the Q7. I also had the cayenne close, but the 3.2 V6 petrol would be too thirsty, the 4.5 just crazy(might as well of got the v10 Treg, of which i did not want even higher repair bill possibilities. ) Not to mention an advert boasting about 24k in repairs in the last 3yrs.......no thanks!
My short list was 535 touring , almost ruled out as fast as the x5!, a6 quattro, cayenne ,RR and Treg, no guess for the winner. Only time will tell if it was a wise choice lol Cars can be a gamble when new, so with a few years and miles under their belt ,the gamble becomes greater, i like to look at it.......if they come this far, they can do a bit more!

Completely agree Ven, i have always liked the Cayenne as a bit of a side choice. Im not sure what i am going to do the day i need to replace my treg (hopefully that isn't for many years)

So bit of an update nothing has gone wrong with the Treg since my last update (touch wood i haven't just jinxed it) it has motored on making me very happy of my purchase took me to Snetterton and back in the day for the British touring cars. Me and the wife went away for the weekend last weekend with our caravan and found some slightly boggier than expected green lanes. In places the car sank a few inches in to the mud but the car handled it all, didn't even need low range. At some points i was sideways whilst still travelling forwards. Didn't get any pics of the lanes but took a few of the Treg when i got back to the site. Also found some off road bits within Clumber park as well. This is my first proper off roader, i have had a four wheel drive passat V6 in the past(drift beast in the snow!!) my confidence is really growing with this and now when we go away i will be looking for legal places to be able to get dirty!! :D B)

Chaser: Already have a ground spike, but had only gone back to the caravan for 10mins to get changed and as it was so hot didnt want to leave them in the car.

Nooby: No grease as with the new style Hitches the tow ball has to be dry for the stabiliser to work.

Where are you going in Scotland? We'll be in Fife for 2nd half of June - should have been to the Shetlands but health issues are curtailing the really long trips at the moment.


Be careful as according to the series the crime rate is horrible there... :-) Hope you're feeling better!

Yes, Shetland and Midsomer seem to have very high murder rates - my health has improved since fitment of an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) so I'm planning longer* trips for next year

longer* is relative of course.

Its been a bit manic in our household of late. Treg passed its MOT cleanly no advisories! After replacing a broken back spring.
Have had a bath pipe leak which has meant our newly completed kitchen has had to be gutted back to bare brick and wires with waiting around for insurance company and contractors it is being a real drain :(
Anywhoo...The wife and some of our work colleagues signed up to do the Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge for charity. If some of you don't know the challenge is to walk the 3 highest mountains Yorkshire has to offer within 12hours!
Pen-y-gent Whernside and Ingleborough. I was one of the support team and the Treg was my noble steed. Holding everyone's spare water, food and clothing etc. It was a long day me the wife and a few others camped over nearby. I used the spare time to fit some wind deflectors and carpet mats.
Any ways couple of pics to have a look at third one is the team as they were setting off.

I used a Touareg for our local Scouts effort on the National Three Peaks Challenge 24 (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in 24 hours) - I spent the spare time sleeping as the round trip was over 1,000 miles!

I can think of worse places to be for 1000 miles! It takes on everything that we have put it against and come back for more.

The only better place would have been my own Touareg - I was using one rented from Enterprise by VW UK as mine was awaiting parts from the factory, it was a rather unloved R-Line with 21" rims, steel springs and standard seats so just not as comfortable as my SE's 19" rims, air suspension and comfort seats.

Bit of an update,

I have used the current lockdown/ working from home to my advantage and got some little jobs done on my Treg.
First was the parking brake strut, dont need to go through a fancy secret handshake style set off now to get the light off :rolleyes:
Second was the boot struts over the course of about a year the boot has slowly been trying to consume who ever decided to open it by not staying up. Can now say it stays up (no hands required ;) lol)
And lastly whilst in there i had found a few broken wires for the bootlid (which explained my playing up high level brake brake light) so fixed those aswell.
Happy now niggles are fixed, just need to give it a service ready for when i can get back out and drive it again.

Thanks all

So last weekend we got away for our first weekend of the year with the Treg and caravan.
A nice little site in Winsford Cheshire straight onto the Whitegate way. Weather held out for the most part. Just great to be away again.
