About Me

Family History of VW ownership clear back into the 1950s. I bought my first VW in 2011 after totalling my Corolla. I started with a 2008 Jetta 2.5, base model and the bug hit me. After a few years I wanted to downsize and get a Diesel so I traded for a 2011 Golf TDi and the modding began. I learned a ton just by reading forums and diving in and doing it. I loved the car. The day the emissions stuff hit I was worried that they'd park all TDIs so I went to the dealer and they gave me a good deal to get into a Tiguan. Tiguan #1 a 2012 She was short lived as it had been totalled and not recorded. While mechanically sound I was afraid I'd be dumping endless money into paint and body repairing it. So the dealer did a full buyback and put me into Iggy. A 2013 gently used CPO SE+. The SE+ is a rare package as I have Climatronic and Leather Seats on an SE but no Nav or Sunroof. Come to find I had looked at this same Tiguan a year prior at a lot across the state. Small world and it was meant to be. I love the 4 motion system and this winter it paid for itself.

I am a very mechanical VW enthusiast with in depth knowledge of most common mods, coding, VCDS work and I am not afraid to add OEM bits and pieces and those that aren't quite OEM but I build them in looking like OEM. OEM+ or Bust.
