    MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    Mike,
    I read in another post that you own both vehicles, although with different engines, I was wondering how you compare them please?
    I would assume the VW to be about 100 times more competent than the X5 off road and the other way round on road, correct?
    Thanks.

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    hi fanch

    well to be honest, i totally dislike the X5(i've got the 4.8iS) so the suspension is rock-hard! the touareg is great off-road you can also adjust the stiffness of your ride which is great, unlike the x5 you can just set the height(either way it gets even harder if you change the height) it's just plain stiff 24/7. the touareg is really comfortable and good value for money on the performance side - once again the touareg wins hands down, on acceleration, consumption etc. the x5 does have better brakes though(too sensitive for my liking as well). next week my cayenne turbo will arrive, so i can compare that against the touareg, i'm sure it will come out on top though!

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    Wow mike im assuming you have the W10 touareg if so i would really like to know how much to you suppose it does in 0-60 and 0-100?

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    yes it's the V10 TDi. well it goes 0-100kmh or 0-62mph in 7 seconds, which isn't bad for an almost 6000lbs car and it's a diesel motor!!! but once it goes past 62mph/100kmh and the momentum is going, it gets to 235kmh/146mph limiter pretty quick

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    Mike, you have an X5, Tourag and a Cayenne Turbo? Are you an SUV collector or something?

    Missing is the Range Rover Sport, must say I really like the looks of it, very stylish

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    i don't like the range rover sport, never really liked range rover for some reason, just personal preference.

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    Mike IF you dont mind me asking i was just curious what you do for a living

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    i'd actually prefer to keep that confidential, sorry

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    MG, read between the lines man..............he's a porn star

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    Well being in his mid 20s, living in SA, owning at least 6 very expensive (cars are much more expensive in SA than in the US cheap car wonderland) he must be one hell of a porn star! No way in hell do you earn that much money from being a male pornstar... yes I know

    So far I've noted a SL65, a 997C2S convertible, a Noble M400, a X5 4.8is, a VW Touareg V10 TDI and a Cayenne Turbo.

    So either Mike is one of the most gifted entrepreneurs around (if he's only in his mid 20s), the prodigy to the head of an organized crime organization, a porn biz super distributor, a diamond mine owner or maybe his parents are loaded and decided to share their wealth with him and spoil him beyond recognition.

    Or maybe he is like this young guy (26 years old) I know in Denmark where prices are even higher (amongst the highest in the world). This guy inherited an insane amount of money and has about 8 cars on Danish numberplates adding up to about 2.5 million USD. Just a shame this same guy is totally irresponsible and throwing his inheritance away and disrespecting his family by doing this I am sure Mike is not like that

    In any case, being 20 something and owning 6 cars adding up to at least 1 million USD (SA prices) is not common MikeS you are one luck SOB!

    Re: MikeS: Touareg vs X5?

    no comment jabbajabba honest hard work for my $, and omg i would have left denmark too if car prices were that steep!

    there is a guy in SA who owns the only McLaren F1, Ezno and CGT in the country, just those 3 cars add up to around $5,000,000 and who knows what else he has
