    Car swap advice needed...

    I need some swappage advice please.

    I currently have an October 2001 Mercedes ML55 AMG with 60k on the clock and have been offered a swap for a 2005 V10 Touareg SE.

    Please help as Iím confused.com

    From this:

    The Merc is one of the earlier ml’s thar was built poorly in yankeeland . It’s starting to rust quite a bit...
    Are you just telling me to keep the posh cat because of the veedub’s colour Damo?

    They’re both £50k cars but at least bluey is a few years newer, has no rust and doesn’t have a load of warning lights flashing up. Oh and 29bhp less, 1/2 a litre smaller engine but with two more V’ - technically it’s a W10.

    I know what I want to do, I’m just looking for intranetz support.

    Is the VW not worth more on the second hand market?

    I would’ve thought so. It’s hard to find a price for the ML as they only made less than 500 of them for the UK market.

    That’s done over double the mileage of mine though.

    Iíve got the VW atm. I drove the ML around the coast to his house to collect the Toerag for a test drive weekend. 350bhp of V8 family wagon that shifts like a shifty thing and then swapping for a 5.0 V10 Toerag that is a drop of about 29bhp but shit loads more torque.
    Feels like driving a tractor tbh...
    I put a tenner of diseasle in. Didnít even take it out of the reserve!!
    Another expensive weekend....

    Iím still undecided on the blue but itís growing on me...
