Finally after almost nine months of waiting "it" arrived, and after a lot of trouble as you can see in another "string" it suddently appeared as I wanted it to be.

You all know what a Touareg looks like so therefore I will try to show you, the tricks and turns we have to do in Denmark, in order to satisfy "the taxman". The Touareg I will show you now has the cost of 44.500 pound sterling, if the backseat was in you just multiply by two.

First of all our Beauceron dog called "Samson" (it is French and the breed is the original father of the German Shephard and part of the Doberman says hello and welcome:



And Yes "The nose" you can see is my wife's RAV 4

The next picture is for Pilgrim who wanted to see the VDO display, it is mounted in the air intake but in a way so it doesn'nt irritate the "airsupply", but it irritates the little topcompartment so it is a bit difficult to open, it gets "stuck" in a way, but perhaps a little silicone lubricant will help:



Here You see it from the side:



Here we take a look from the back, I have taken everything out, and wrapped up the sound insulation:



Here You see the "secret" compartment made for hunting "guns" right behind the driving seat:



Now this room can be used for other things than guns...this is for You Buster..Beers..notice the gassprings that holds the lid open:



We close the lid and apply the carpet:



On top of that we apply a rubberplastic thing of poor quality which VW charged me 136 pound sterling for (I had not seen it)..but..but..it will work, the nose of the blue boat is a 16 feet thing we bought (not second hand but perhaps fifty hand, we use for fishing, we live 0,4 mile from the Baltic Sea (or what ever you name it):




Let us have a look from the outside, eventhoug You are superfamiliar with this vehicle this is from the Viking yard
:



What i really want you to see on the pictures is the very dark windows, and the superunoriginal (cheap)18" wheels with Michelin 255 Pilote on. The original 17" wheels is in my carport with Continental 235 wintertyres on.

Have a look:



I hope this works

Kind regards to you all

Viking,

Looks good. I noticed you have the colour screen in your intrument console, but not the Satnav - in the UK, we only get that with the Satnav fitted (well used to anyway).

Kaine, You will get the colour screen on any Touareg if You order it with airsprings and xenonlights, which I did, that is standard. Otherwise you cannont follow the movement of suspension.

Great Photos Viking but just one thing your dog has it claws on the chrome bumper trim
better go and check he/she has not scratched it.

Not planning anything its just safer if i carry it in a vault whilst in the car

but the dogs take first place so i can not leave it in the car overnight

Nice Van !

looks great & very well finished. I would have bought one like this if it was cheaper to do so in the UK.

One Question though - why the screen behind one seat?

I'd like to see the crate he went in to on his travels.

Perhaps that's the reason for the screen behind the front seats - to prevent you losing your head when you're driving.

Thank you for your interest, my wife is a bit fed up with Touareg talk, so at the moment she wishes me here on this planet with the treg, perhaps that was why she made this photo, and send it to me at lunchtime:



By the way, the reason for the screen are actually two different things:

1) Since it is registrered as a van, the driver shall be protected from getting the goods in the neck.

2) It is also made as an "irritation" from the "taxman". If you remove the screen or if you move it just half an inch backwards, (the police controls it), you will be given a very hefty fine. If you put a passenger in the back, the vehicle will be confiscated, it is as simple as that. People are very creative when it comes to saving money, they have rebuilt Porche 911's, Chevrolet Camaro's etc into vans, since our tax is 180% on the factory price plus 25% VAT. Creating a van is only 60% tax plus 25% Vat.

Yes it's a big dog, but he is 9 and a half years old now so in two weeks time we are going to get one of theese puppies here, Dogo Argentino:



Regards

I doubt he is saying hello, and doesn't look like a welcome smile either


Your taxman is a nice son of a b*tch, I'd say. Send the dog to negotiate, next time.
