HID’s? Having owned 2 Touaregs and driven several others, personally I would get hung up on buying one with rather than without.
If the Touareg your looking at has halogens then it most likely does NOT have:
1- leather seats but rather V-tex, which is another way of saying plastic with holes in it. For what it cost to buy a Touareg should not have to settle for parking your backside on plastic.
2- heated steering wheel. Really like this, could certainly live without it, but it sure makes the daily winter commute more pleasant.

I’ve found the HID’s to be far superior to the halogens. From spring thru summer often experience dense fog on road ways in evenings up this way; much better vis with the HID’s, less back scatter reflections and can utilize hi beam in denser fog than with halogens.
A halogen reflector with anything other than a halogen bulb in it is very offensive (and often dangerous) to oncoming cars and anyone who is being followed.

Just my spoiled American 1st world opinion.

A diesel Cayenne with air suspension is a unicorn in US. If I was looking for a diesel German SUV I would pick X5 35d F15. No post-fix bs, engine, transmission, interior, technology are way better in X5 even compared to a Cayenne not to mention Treg.

I have both an X5 and a Cayenne.

My neighbor bought a diesel X5 and has had a recurring nightmare when it randomly decides not to start due to a balky switch that has been replaced multiple times. To each their own.

I personally had 2 X5 35d - E70 and F15. Never had any major issues.
