Re: Touareg V6 or V8 (SinoGTI)

I'm a noobie here

So I'm looking for some help convincing my wife we need the V8.
I did a quick search, on V6 vs V8 maybe theres a good thread I should see?.
I quick run down on the value of the 8 over the 6 would be great. She's only thinking of MPG and $.
Or maybe you could show me the error of my ways, is the V6 enough.

Tell her it's safer, as it will allow you to get out of the way of run away logging trucks if the need arises
and you can get the ice cream home before it melts
Did you listen to the V8 when you stand on it a little

The mileage is not significantly different between the two. If she wants better mileage- go for the V10- you will like it even better...

I have a V8, and admittedly I love it. But truthfully, as far as value goes, you can't beat the V6. Especially if you get a stripper. The base car is an incredible deal for the money!

Re: (BrunDog)

You know, you make a good point, but if you look at what it costs to get the Audi 4.2L engine in either the A6 ($49,500 base), Allroad ($46,950 base), or A8L ($68,500 base), the Touareg V8 is an unbelievable value more so than the V6. The Touareg base V8 price is $42,640 ($4,310 less than the base Allroad) and $21,960 less than the Phaeton!!!

"...besides the engine what else do you get by getting the V8(package)"
More respect from pepper owners.

NAH, they are in their own world and can't tell the difference between a V6 and V8 unless they are directly behind one.

Hell yeah, the V8 is way quicker, the v6 is way to slow. I had to take my V8 in for service and they let me borrow a V6 and it was terrible. Very slow.

Didn't your wife drive both the v6 and v8? If so, wasn't that enough to convince her?
I guess I was more fortunate. My wife test drove both when I did, and she wanted the v8 after driving both. Fortunate for me, my wife loves good acceleration just as much as I do.
