Sorry Richard - the sums still don't add up!

Besides, I want to know where I'm going from day one! Who said "that'll be a change"?!

Alex - No, it's not a 330d, it's a VW Touareg V6 TDI (3 litre), with low ratio gears, air suspension (adjustable ride height) and 500 nm of torque.

Autocar recorded 0-62 in 9.1 seconds, whereas the 3.2 litre petrol model takes a whole 9.9 seconds! Not bad for a 2.25-2.5 tonne car!

Yes, I'm sure that the BMW X5 or the 330d would be faster but IMHO they are both lacking in style (inside, at least) and neither can match the comfort or towing ability of my "Treg"! (Oops - I think I'm going to pay for those remarks!)

The only downside is that it takes quite a long time to polish - 10 hours on Sunday! Mind you, I use the Meguiar's polishing system, which is like polishing it three times!

Apologies to JW for going a little "off topic".
