Wish me luck tomorrow. The Tiguan I want has been delivered to the dealer, already having people wanting it, but my name's on it till Friday. Insurance came back a lot lower, so I want to test drive it, and work the real numbers.

Best of luck, I hope it's the car you want. 

 

Insurance over there must be quite different to the UK, here we've dozens of insurance companies vying for your business and several comparison sites that get quotes from them all. Usually not difficult to get a decent quote as long as you're a clean driver. Insurance costs wouldn't normally be a factor changing a car over here, especially broadly the same car.

 

My Tig renewal this year was just over £200, full cover with claims protection (you earn discount not claiming, and loose several years if you do claim, this protection effectively gives you 1 claim without affecting the discount). 

 

Our cover covers the car driven by named drivers, myself and the misses in our case.

Wow I wish mine was that low. I went from $1650 a year for Full Coverage on tbe Tiguan and the Harley. ($90 a month for the Tiguan alone) and that's with a $100 comprehensive deductable, 50k in medical, uninsured and underinsured motorist, OEM parts replacement etc. And custom parts coverage, towing up to 50 Miles, and roadside assistance. It's stupid. But he got it down to $1100 a year, so that's a sizable difference. With the lease Tiguan it will jump up to $1250 a year. Mostly due to newer vehicle, and value.

I'm also insured to drive any vehicle I drive, so even if I hop in a friend's uninsured car I'm covered as is anyone who drives my car is covered. We have accident of ticket forgiveness as well. I got a speeding ticket in my Golf TDI 74 in a 60, I zipped down an on ramp to the freeway to merge, and saw an opening to shoot over to the HOV lane. He's lucky he got Menon the Deceleration. I was well over 90. Lol. But within a week I had a letter from insurance about rewind. It plugs into your OBD2 port. And monitors everything. GPS, Braking, acceleration, deceleration, time you drive, length of drive etc. And you are only given so many infractions. And the ticket goes on your record of you fail. Not only that if it monitors bad driving your changed to a high risk category. I was supposed to be monitored 3 months. After 3 weeks they said send it back. I feared I failed but I ha done infraction in 3 weeks. A hard braking event when I was cut off on the freeway and brake checked.

So yeah I passed and the ticket never went on my insurance. What had the price up was that open claim from 2001 that was never completed. So now that it's closed my rates dropped.

I don't commute anymore either, I could of gotten it lower but they put a 7500 mile restriction on pleasure use.

So yeah if all goes right I'll own a 2020 SEL R Line Glacier White Tiguan by close on Friday. Lol. Only sucky part is the 3 year 36k warranty. No more 7 year/75k for 2020

Well sadly not happening at this time. Not only did the order in the wrong package, it was an SE R Line, so no projectors, no digital dash etc and it had 144 miles on it. According to the vin sheet it's been moved a few times to different lots. OD was correct I'm not a huge fan of the seats but maybe they would break in? Pretty much after I said no, another sales guy was in the phone calling a customer to come in. So they will let me know if they can find a matching Tiguan, even a 2019 with the better warranty, told them of they find a 2019 and make a heck of a deal I'd might consider a loan vs lease. And I agreed to 2 other colors, one being habanero orange.

After 18 months Dan I can say no break in. :( This will impact my next vehicle lease. I shudder at the thought of a long distance trip.

Wishing you all the best on your next ride.

On another good note, insurance did another adjustment and got my insurance down on my current Tiguan to $77 a month. So $950 a year now. I'm not complaining.

Cloth on the SEL here is not an option just V-tex leatherette or real leather. The 2 tone is Leatherette sadly and solids are real leather. Only way to get cloth here is the Base Models. :(

But things are getting interesting. They just took in a trade on an low mile SQ5. Has everything on my list I want. Has 22k miles on it. 3.0 v6. Loaded. Few mods, tint, APR down pipes so it's probably tuned, and some suspension upgrades. Has the 3rd row but being longer it doesn't eat up the room like the Allspace. Said they could deal on it more than a new Tiguan. See how sharp their pencils are.

They apparently traded it in on a Toureg TDI they had on the lot.

Sorry it is that leatherette material not leather and I find it more comfortable than the real leather in my previous cars.

FWIW the leather (real I am told) in the R-Line here in NZ is very comfortable. Still has the cold in winter and hot in summer issues that make decent cloth seats better in many respects but leather is what all R-lines have here.

Well since I figure I'm keeping my current Tig, I'm pushing forward on a few mods. Thanks to a local Tiguan owner in trade for helping him do door warning lights, and rear foot Wells, he gave me a Highline Camera Module, harness and camera sans the handle. Module is a 5N0907441 camera is a 5N0580551A. Got most of the connectors but sadly he cut the wires for ground (no biggie) and the Can Wires near where I assume they enter the radio harness. Both are orange one with a Brown and one with a purple stripe. Have a red wire with a Blue stripe I assume is the T15 key on hot. Brown is ground. Then splitting off a 2 wire harness with a brown/blue Red/yellow terminated in a black 2 pin connector. Maybe to the tail light? It's as long as the coax to the camera so need some input there. And the camera has the same connector with a red and a black wire I assume Power and ground to the camera. So I'll have to source a few connectors, and a camera handle sans a camera. And of course the Head unit.

Then since I'll have the interior pulled for other stuff as well, I'll drag the wires to do euro turn signals, and dual rear fog lights. And wire in the led strips as Tail/Turns. Laying down a layer of sound deadening on the floor and anywhere I've got open up doing wiring, hatch, sides etc.

I need one of the smart ones with ETKA to see if one can find the rear handle for the hatch for a camera without a camera.

He hooked me up on his FB page with the wiring and the missing holder. Probably just see if I can find a used handle And use tht best camera from the 2. Still need to get the RNS510 Ver E or better. I was hoping when the MiB came out then Discover Media that the RNS series would drop in price but people like me who like Nav on the radio not using your phone is keeping the price up. $600 is still a hunk of change for a good one.
