How are you? Thanks, I'm loving it. Yes, ditched the Jeep as it was sucking on so many levels
I started a new job about 4 months ago now and I have to commute 92 miles per day but its like 85% open highway. My jeep was costing me $80 just to get to and from work weekly, excluding my weekend use. It also had so many issues that I was tired of dealing with.
My new Treg, I've only got 920 miles on it now and I'm already hitting 30.2Mpg for my work commute versus the 20.5Mpg from the Jeep. So far I'm almost making 2 weeks on a tank including work and weekend use so I'm very happy. The interior and build quality of the Treg is worlds apart from the Jeep.
So when are you getting one?

i love the different looks of the touaregs, theres the guys who slam it and make it a giant sports car with the tinting and flashy rims, theres also the guys who go for the badass off road look! small rims, huge tires foglights..wish i had 2 toauregs so i could do both

Definitely nothing fancy here (just tires), and it seems to work quite well off road for the most part. I’ve driven hundreds of kms off road and have never had to lock the diff yet, but use LOW gear all the time.
Here I broke trail to the end of the road. All the other "4WD" tracks ended lower down the road at a steep icy section a few hundred feet below, out of view where the road drops off. I bet they were thinking WFT
The ground was pure ice under the hard crusty snow.
