Re: On the Horizon for the Touareg (tedpark)

Would you prefer the original German?
One thing is for sure, no Touaregs will be built during week 31 and 32 this year.
VW will start building cars with new options: external rear tire, solar sunroofs, heated windshields, full leather, DVD player after shutdown.
There will be a V6 TDI.
There will be a 280 HP VR6 gas (Cayenne V6 buyers, are you listening?).

Yes, I'd love to get the original German text. I tried to find it on your touareg-freunde.de site, but couldn't. Could you tell me where I could find the original so I could give the translation another attempt. (Or just send it to me.)

Re: On the Horizon for the Touareg (spockcat)

Since you're so "smart" - you wanna have a crack at this one:
The system mountain starting assistant and mountain driving off assistant is since model year change series extent with switching and automatic transmission
That is my favorite one. Living on the "pacific rim" I see a lot of "janglish", but this stuff is REALLY weird!!!

Re: On the Horizon for the Touareg (tedpark)

Employment curve light is planned in the year 2005
To me, and I'm certainly no Einstein, much less a spockcat or bravo, but that signifies something we should have already had: Adaptive headlights. Our lights give such poor side coverage now, that would be a major boon for this car.

* Effective immediately, Telephone and telephone preparation kits (9ZF, 9W8, 9W9) can only be ordered with the multi-function steering wheel.
* For the R5 TDI or V6 it is impossible to order the 1D9.
* The folded 17” spare tire "1G6" cannot be ordered in combination with the auxiliary heater "PHA".
* With the auxiliary heater only one radio remote will be supplied. The statement in the manual is incorrect and was corrected.
* Starting with production week 40/03 the telephone preparation "9W8" is equipped with a comfort operation. However, this can only be used with the additionally ordered multi-function steering wheel (standard on the V8 and V10 TDI).

* The auxiliary heating system "PHA" cannot be ordered in combination with the folding spare wheel "1G6" or 1G1".

Re: On the Horizon for the Touareg (td_treg)

Thanks. It is easier to understand and when I pasted the German in I see that I cut some information along the wrong parts which made them more confusing.
One thing I don't see mentioned is a new nav system. The PSE (order code) DVD player is probably just an entertainment system.
I am placing my order already: 2006 V6 TDI with automatic distance regulation (smart cruise control). Delivery in September 2005 please. Keyless start would be nice too!

Re: On the Horizon for the Touareg (TCinOC)

If you're interested about the details of the V6 TDI engine, here are some numbers. I believe that they'll use the Audi engine. Audi has a 3 liter V6 TDI with 165kW at 4000RPM and 450Nm torque between 1400-3250RPM.
Here's what Audi posts on their English website:
V6 diesel engine with VTG turbocharger, DOHC; TDI direct injection.
Displacement, cm³:2969
Max. output, kW (PS) at rpm: 165(225)/4000
Max. torque, lbs. ft(Nm) at rpm: 332(450)/1400-3250
Engine management:
Common rail direct injection, 1600 bar with piezo injectors, seven-hole injector nozzles, VTG turbocharger with intercooler, swirl and tangential intake ports, swirl port regulated Bosch EDC-16CP+, volume, injection start, charge pressure, EGR control CAN bus.
Emission control system:
Air-gap insulated exhaust manifold, oxidising converters as primary and main catalytic converters, water-cooled exhaust-gas recirculation.

Re: On the Horizon for the Touareg (TCinOC)

The info is not show on our web page.
Rather than complaining you guys should really appreciate the info spock has posted for you.
Too much info sometimes spoils people, then they get demanding and they forget how much work and effort is really put into this.
Also the W12 Touareg is comin by the end of the year for sure. The car is already ready and sitting in a hall in Wolfsburg. The W12 will be limited to approx. 400 units a year and will cost something in the range of 100,00 € and will be pepped up by the following company:

Show off will be in September 2004 in Frankfurt at our first annual Touareg meeting. Pictures and reports are sure to follow.

I wonder why they're taking out the aluminum running boards...
V6 TDI sounds REAL interesting!
What are firm roof rails, and what do they mean by child seat?

Thanandon, Great info. I've never seen this website before either. Guys this site is worth the visit!
As for the person who asked which country this info is for, the answer is Europe but the question is how much of it will we see and what do we want?

Re: (Uriah)

Could the aluminum running boards have been the Cayenne running boards that have the integrated rocker panels? That would look sharp on most any color TREG!
Solar sunroof to power internal cabin fan for cooling during the hot months like the Audi warm weather pacakge, except they get the power retractable sunscreen for the rear window in the sedan.?
Some nice options-what will this do to the price?
How is the Euro/US$ exachange rate? Another surcharge in MY '05?
I have seen the sales figures for the TREG, but don't remember what VW projections are for the TREG. Is VW selling as many TREGs as they want/need to?
Solid roof rack, or whatever it is called, could be the roof length style racks the Devoman, I believe, put on his V6. Better/worse/no better?
So amny questions-so little time.

Spockcat-
Thanks for the pinching this wonderful information. I love getting information ahead of time. Without you, we would know about options when we were at the dealer getting things fixed.
You're a good man.

I can't speak for the rest of us but I want another TDI option besides the V10. For the V10 the mileage isn't there and the cost is prohibitive.
The V6TDI worries me a little because I have always been told that a V6 configuration is inherently imbalanced. I would prefer the R5's inline engine. Has VW even done the preliminary market research for more TDI options? How do we make our voices heard?
