Late start to the year...but a new tow vehicle.

Unfortunately, yesterday was the first day my wife and I got our boat out of winter storage. It was also the first day we got to tow the X2 with our new Touareg.

We don't have 450 in Belgium, And with expensive I mean also road taxes I think if its a 4.5 L engine around 2500 euros a year :s.

Is it a Diesel or gasoline?

Ahh, now I understand. We don't pay any direct road taxes but our fuel consumption is taxed. Still, a LOT less expensive than in Europe (based on my travel in Germany). Mine is a gasoline version. I would have liked the Diesel but they are not nearly as common on the used vehicle market and command a higher cost.

Not near as hot as the fonz's black 2500. Real men don't drive lowered trucks just kidding its real nice, not my style.
