Same here. Ditched my Q5 for a TDI Lux. Welcome. I'm also very impressed with the vehicle.
After owning five Audis in a row, I'm back to VW. Picked up my 2012 V6 TDI Lux yesterday. So far I'm impressed.
One question so far: Manual says there should be a factory installed insert in the rear seat cupholder. Anyone get this? Can't find mine.
I moved over from an A5. Test drove the Q5 3.2 extensively. Nice car as well, but I was not wowed in the same way as when I took the TDI out for the first time; bigger, heavier, nicer on the highway, great performance, and you still end up better off at the pump.
Current: 2012 Passat TDI SEL / 2012 Touareg TDI Lux
Past VW: 2005 Touareg 3.2 / 1996 GTI-VR6
Past Other: 2007 Audi Q7 4.2 / 2007 BMW 328xi / 2006 Porsche Cayenne / 2003 Audi A6 3.0Q / 2001 Audi A4 2.8Q / 1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara / 1991 Honda Accord EX / 1989 Toyota Supra
IMHO, the TDI makes the Touareg. Probably would have gone with the Q5 if I went gas. The economics of the diesel might even make sense if you count resale value in the equation.
We have an '11 Q5 Premium Plus 2.0T and a '12 T-Reg TDI Lux and the Touareg won me over hands down. I love my GTI and it would be a hard choice between the two for me.
