I currently own a 2013 Mk 7 Golf Highline 103 TSI and have ordered a Tiguan 162 TSI R-Line which is due for delivery January 2017. I understand the 162 kW engine is only being fitted to the Tiguan about now, hence the delayed delivery. VW NZ list the Comfortline and Highline in 2WD 110TSI 6 speed DSG form, the Highline 4WD 132TSI and 110TDI 7 speed DSG and the R-Line 4WD 162TSI 7 speed DSG only. The only options on the R-Line are paint colour, sunroof and DYNAUDIO, everything else is standard including the 9.2 inch Discover Pro. Order placed and deposit paid subject to test drive so I can't wait as I haven't even seen one in the flesh yet.

Welcome to the forum Neals, your a lucky lad with the Tig, nice choice.
A couple of my good mates are from NZ, Do you mountain bike? Rotorua is a biking hotspot and known world wide for it now.

Hi Neals,

I too have ordered the 162 kw R-Line . Ship is due end of December apparently.

I'm in the BoP too. Dealer (Farmer auto) said the 9.2 inch screen isn't coming with the R-lines here now which was annoying as it was listed on their specs when I signed up.

I was in Rotorua last Saturday, mountain biking of course.

Apparently the new e-Golf has the 9.2 inch infotainment screen and some of the reviews aren't too complimentary. My Golf has the 8.0 inch Discover Pro fitted and if the new R-Line has the same unit I will be well pleased. The 8.0 inch unit has 4 "hard" buttons and one rotary knob each side of the display screen. It seems that the 9.2 inch unit is wider but no higher than the 8.0 inch and uses the extra width to replace 4 of the hard buttons with touch ones on the display screen and deletes one of the rotary knobs which was used to zoom in/out on the GPS and turn to scroll through menus and press to select the displayed item. I have been advised by VW NZ that the R's are being built now. Mine is on order with Farmer Auto too.

Is the 162 kW Golf GTI engine a Tiguan option in UK and if so have any been delivered yet. My 162 kW car is on the Tarago and she has already been to Birmingham.

How do I post a photo?

Here is one way Neal to add a pic(s) to a New Topic, a Reply or when quoting a Post:

  1. If starting a New Topic go to Step 4.
  2. If posting a Reply select "Use Full Editor" and then go to Step 4.
  3. If quoting a Post select "More Reply Options" and then go to Step 4
  4. You will notice in the bottom left-hand (L-H) corner the area where you attach files. Select your file(s) from your computer. Double-click on the pic or on the "Open" button and you will see the pic come into the bottom of your post.
  5. Put your cursor where you want the pic. Now go down and click on "Add to Post"
  6. When you are all done just hit "Post".
  7. If there are any changes you want to make just edit your post and then hit "Save Changes".

First you're welcome. Now are you using the "Full Version" of our site? If not then select it. If you have the Full Version displayed I have no idea why you cannot see "Start a New Topic." Use your PC or Mac then is all I can suggest.

Cheers!
