Toureg or Touareg ?

I want to assume the 2011 V6 is a 3.0 diesel(as this is most common).
Having imported a few in recent past that figure of 5.4m is pretty high...but, saying that, the dealer has to make a profit.

You should looking at a total import price of 3.5m- 4.5m... even for top condition.It gets better if you decide to go for a 2010 coz duty will be slightly lower.

that amount is too excessive in my view, if you were to import it yourself the car would land in kenya at under 4.5m all inclusive, on the mechanic part, go to landi mawe in industrial area and ask for a guy called manoah, he is quite popular there and he specializes in VWs and Audis

I like the new shape toureg(2011+ model)somehow looks like a cayenne and they share some similarities. My friend has this and so far has not experienced any issues. The common known issue with this model is heating which can be fixed easily. It is far reliable than its predecessor which had transmission issues. As for mechanic go to Landimawe as other wazua a have advised. Those guys work with CMC and are therefore good. I have an Audi which I service there. as for cost the 5.4m is high for used car if he can get it down to around 5m that will be good. This model will cost around 5-5.4m for petrol variant(3.6cc)to important if you were lucky to get a 2011 model. They are scarce though in Japan. Diesel variant from UK will cost you around 4.8-5m

If you are ready to wait I will advise you wait and import. You can as well give me that job to import it for you and pay me a commission ;)

Agreed, KShs 5.4m is a tad too high - 2010 VX V8 territory.
Importing for yourself in your case you will save like a mita.

@JkMwantha, am also shopping for a used 2009 V8, Black Diesel budget 4.5m plse let me know if I can get one I know I would hv to be lucky to get a diesel in lieu of petrol but mwanaume nikuhope na kujaribu kuingia fat-cat territory lol!

Please don't engage Kenyan juakali mechanics to help you assess a 2011 vehicle. Those cars are jammed with electronics and there is no way of assessing them by looking at anything. You just have to put it on a machine. And by the way you can put it on a machine today and its ok, then the next day something gives in.

The advise I would give you is;
1. Import the car directly from majuu, you will have access to a complete report on the cars condition.
2. A Toureg should not be a penny above Kes 4.5M, my guess should be anything between 3.5 - 4.5 M based on condition etc.
3. I hate to say it but most of the Nairobi yards are hit and miss, you could get a good car or some rotten piece of crap
4. With a budget of 5.4M, I would go for a Porsche Cayenne, its basically the high end version of the toureg

itabidi budget yako ipande juu plus you would have to really look around to find one of these and it would probably be a diesel so dont worry about not finding a diesel

@Ole-kanobi, you can't get the new model toureg(2011+) for 3.5-4.5m. Forget. The earliest month you can get for that car is October 2011(if you are lucky) that means the lowest possible duty payable to KRA is about 1.7m. Assuming you were to import the car from Japan the cheapest you can get it for is USS25k. EX UK will be around 23k pounds though you will slightly save on ex-uk model due to lower taxes on diesel variants.

Cayenne is high maintain car-guys prefer buying straight from show room due to warranty etc. You can get a brand new cayenne from Porsche Kenya at around 8M.

Since your car should cost no more than 10% the value of your "owner occupied home", I hope this 5.4m car will be parked outside a home worth at least 54m......and not some 12m apartment at kileleshwa or even worse a 3.5m apartment huko mombasa rd.

Why r u deviating from the main issue. ,?People have money.

Either way what floats someone else boat is his business.
And don't confine your mind to that school of mind.

Toureg is an excellent vehicle. Go for it .
Import for yourself. You will be much more safer than buying locally. Once imported , beside a comprehensive cover, insure the engine,gear box, electric parts etc. There are motoe covers that cover that.

are you sure? sample below quote;

this is a link to a 2011 touareg 3.0 v6;

http://www4.autotrader.c...rt=price-asc&page=2

cost of car 16,495 pounds
background checks, port delivery, inspection, shipping and agency fees 2,400 pounds
taxes, port charges, registration and clearing agent fees 1,181,006 ksh
exchange rate @ 130

total landed cost for the touareg in the link above = ksh 3.6m and i have not even negotiated on the buying price of the car

this car can be shipped in any time from now and taxes will be calculated at 60% depreciation
