The Volkswagen Touareg is a superb choice for people looking for a luxurious 4x4. They offer a high level of comfort and practicality coupled with a great drive position and solid road handling and presence.

This is the superb 2.5 litre diesel (TDI) model and finished in stunning Venetian Green – complete with full contrasting beige leather – an absolutely gorgeous combination. It also has privacy glass and chrome window surrounds. The colour is absolutely glorious – unfortunately the photo’s do not do the colour justice as they don’t quite pick the colour up with 100% accuracy. It’s a deep metallic which shines brilliantly in sunlight and is a very eye-catching colour.

What makes this car unique is that it has been fitted with official VW Altitude parts to match the look of VW’s top-of-the-range model. The Altitude Touareg was not introduced until 2006 – making this car not only look absolutely stunning, but also it now has the looks of a model costing several thousands of pounds more!

The following Altitude body kit has been fitted to this car (all parts are genuine VW):

•  Genuine Altitude Rear Bumper (both upper and lower sections)
•  Genuine Altitude Boot Spoiler
•  Genuine Altitude Front Grille
•  Genuine Altitude Chrome Window Surrounds
•  Genuine Altitude Side Skirts
•  Genuine Altitude Exhaust Trims
•  Genuine Altitude Chrome Door & Wing Mouldings

The approximate cost of these parts brand new from Volkswagen is £3,500, and this price would be excluding spraying and fitting! So all of the hard work (and expense) has already been done for you! The only Altitude part not yet fitted to the car is the front bumper, which is currently the standard 2.5 TDI bumper. However, the bumpers can be bought from eBay for around £250 so there is not much outlay required f you want to 100% complete the Altitude look.

The specifications on Touareg’s can vary considerably, but the specification on this particular car is very good – and includes the essential 12 way electrically adjustable seats with ‘Cricket’ leather upholstery and heated front seats (a £1,020 option).

Quite literally no expense has been spared on this car, and the car has recently been fully serviced, had a brand new dual mass flywheel and clutch fitted (around £1,000 – and unfortunately quite common on Touareg’s around this mileage), plus of course all of the body kit. This is a genuine well-loved example and offers exceptional value for money.

Pre-2006 Touareg’s often suffer from heavy wear to the internal switches as they were originally white plastic coated in a layer of black rubber, and the rubber quickly wears away and exposes the white plastic below. These early switches have now been superseded by versions manufactured in solid black plastic. We’re please to say that ALL of the switches in all four doors have been replaced with brand new versions, as have the rear door ashtray inserts (which were also rubber coated on early cars).

Also worth noting is that the previous owner recently fitted the car with a brand new West Falia tow bar as it was his intention to take the car on camping trips abroad – but he only managed one trip before selling the car. West Falia are VW approved tow bars, and cost in the region of £600 - £700 to have fitted, and of course come with full electrics. Remember as well that this is the rarer manual model – and would make an absolutely perfect towing car!

This model is fitted with the superb 2.5 Turbo Diesel engine which provides a more than capable 172bhp and provides a very smooth ride. This car features the excellent 6 speed manual gearbox.


The car is finished in stunning metallic Venetian Green with the Altitude chrome window surrounds and is in excellent condition all-around. The privacy glass against the green bodywork and silver window surrounds really does finish the car off beautifully.

The car is fitted with upgraded alloys to complete the look of the car (which we believe are genuine VW wheels), and all tyres have plenty of tread remaining.

The car has been upgraded with Altitude exterior body kit (all genuine VW parts) and looks in a league of its own compared to the standard 2.5 TDI model. This really is a unique opportunity to own one of the best looking Touareg’s out there – looking like a 2006 Altitude model costing several thousands of pounds more!

This car also has the optional upgrade headlight washers.


As is to be expected from a top of the range VW model, the interior is sheer luxury and finished to the highest standard.

The seats and door cards etc are finished in beige ‘cricket’ leather and both front seats are fully electric for maximum convenience and comfort.

The rear seats fold flat giving the car an absolutely massive rear load space – perfect for those big shopping spree’s!


The car has a FULL SERVICE HISTORY from new and comes complete with the stamped VW Service Log book.

The car was fully serviced with W Robinson Renotech at 71,197 miles. The next service is not now due for approximately another 19,750 miles.

It’s worth noting that this particular car is on the VW Long Life service schedule, which means that the car needs servicing every 20,000 miles or two years. Not all Touareg’s are on this schedule (with the alternative being every 10,000 miles/one year) as it depends on how they were set up in production. So this will save you several hundred pounds per year in servicing as it only needs to be serviced every other year (unless you run very high mileages).
