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
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!!!
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.
