Yea I read that post and was asking for clarification as it doesn’t expressly state he does weekend appointments. Just says he’ll do the occasional weekend job. I wanted to know if I can make an appointment to be that occasional weekend job.

Call him up and ask him yourself...

Thanks for the update. I sent an email to his gmail address figuring he'd probably see it before a PM from here.
I've searched my inbox and haven't seen an email from you?

Looking forward to meeting Matt on Monday and introducing him to my 2008 T2 V10. It is an awesome vehicle but after 160k miles, needs a bit of TLC to cure what is ailing. Hopefully he can get it set up for another 160k!

The Touareg 2 TDI V-10 was sold from 2008-2010 and probably is what he is referring to.;)

Yes; these youngsters just don't know the CLASSICS! Hopefully clicking on the link will educate them. :D
BTW, I thought the first gen Toureg went from 2002 - 2010, the second generation from 2010 - 2018, and the third gen started in 2018? Sounds like the 2008-2010 "Toureg 2" were not true second gen models but just a marketing ploy.

Yeah, the official first gen is 2003 (2002 in Europe) through 2007, facelifted version with some updated electronics 2008-2010. 2011-18 is the real big revamp of the Touareg, in the U.S. is usually called a 3rd gen. Some of the rest of the world lumps the 2003-10 cars together as the first gen and the 2011+ as the second gen.

But hey, enough parts are different in the 2008-10 cars that I don't think it's a bad idea to differentiate them from the true first gens.

I do like my 2004 quite a bit. No DPFs to worry about and it did come with the rear locker... which has seen some use.
