German engineering = 15 bolts where only 3 are needed and 20 moving parts where only 2 are needed.

Rdlangston13- You are right, twin turbos, twin intercoolers, 4 wheel all time drive, 20 brake pistons on Brembo calipers, 10 Cylinders, 4 heated seats, 4 separate automatic climated controls yeah more can be overkill but for this reason alone this time more is better --19mph in town instead of the 16mph that my V-8 got and all with MORE POWER and TORQUE. :D
your toureg has a v10 AND twin turbos?

Yeah she has twin turbos. TDI = Turbo Direct Injection.
I have been working on and owning Euro cars for over 30 years (Owned Opels, BMWs, a Porsche, VWs). BMW and VW are pretty straight forward and actually easy to work on. Now Mercedes that is a different animal and I would NOT own one of those. Not to be a snob but I have owned 3 Chevy trucks too. The best was the Chevy Avalanche, if only I hadn't of ordered it with a 4:11 rear axle ratio, talk about a gas hog, but my wife and I think it was the best Chevy we ever owned.
The best of ALL of them (fun factor here) was the Porsche 911. My wife and I will get another one someday. I guess when I pay off the Moomba! :)
I noticed that our boats are almost sisters! Pretty boat!!! :)
Nothing too exciting - 98 GMC K1500, but low miles and clean. K&N Intake, exhaust, AirRaid spacer -but still huffs and puffs to pull the Moomba up big hills. Pulling the hills on the freeway trying to hold the speed limit or more can get really noisy and drink a lot gas, but then again our boating season is only a few months of the year... I think I'll look into a performance chip or tuner before I look into a bigger truck (and the big payments that go with them). I'm not much of a diesel fan so I think my next pick would be an F350 Crew with the V-10.
White - it goes with everything!
these are from a couple years ago when the lakes were way low.
Just noticed that the last photo is the 03 LSV with the tower off it.
