Thanks guys. I hope the delivery process is smooth and timely. Color of the car is Galapagos Anthracite (blackish grey). Interiors are beige (hmm..) though I was confused between Latte Macchiato and beige but chose beige as didn't knew how exactly latte would look.

Congrats on a perfectly loaded SUV ! OTR price aint that bad considering it's a CBU, if only VW wakes up and begins assembling it here, the car would give a tough fight to the 5 series and E class.

Yes did consider Montero but
- Felt the engine was bit underpowered
- Average on road performance
- Wanted a european/german car this time

Touareg is supposed to get a model change earliest by the end of 2010. We should see it on road sometimes in 2011. Too late ..

Congrats !! You just bought my favourite SUV man. Especially the V10 TDI looks insane and goes like stink too. Nice combo of shades for exterior-interior.
