Is it on TM? I saw one locally to me (Napier) but it didn't have the bodykit on. I thought they all had that?

Is it just me or is 49K a lot of money for something like this done 210,000kms?

There seems to be little interest in this one at 30K done less than half the kms:

Good buying at $30k. Although the reserve was twice that. Not many people in NZ that would part with $49k on a car with so many KM on it unless is was a classic.

While a cool car / SUV, I think that the reality is that this is the sort of vehicle that is unlikely to every be a classic or a collectible vehicle, regardless of how good/not good it may be.
I like fast toys.

I really do like the Touaregs, but having had one powered by a R5 motor (2.5lt pumpe duese turbocharged diesel) which broke down four days into my ownership and needed an $11,000 replacement head, I can't see myself buying a version powered by what is essentially two R5 motors V'd together. Go on someone, I dare you to buy it!
