Many thanks And much respect to you OldDog. I Tell you it's killing us as we're both shielding from outside life. The diesel tank is only half full indeed 3miles in 7 weeks is a record I'm sure and one I'm not proud of.

I've had two Tigs and never used the rear seat trays, but I'm glad someone has made use of them lol :razz:

Kids used the trays when they were younger to rest their iPads on when on long trips. Popped over to Bruges last year via the Eurostar and our friends in the back ate their packed lunch off of the trays. I think they are great.

Went and had a look as maybe I had missed the trays under the seat covers, but not a feature in Aus Tigs it seems as well as no alarm. Good to see, however, the twin beer can holders.

I wonder which dept in VW decides country specs. Ja, Herr Direktor, Aussies drink but don't eat in the backseat and are not clever enough to steal this model.

Whilst my wife was having a eye test, a few days ago, I though I would have a quick snooze. I was amazed how much leg-room there was in the back seats.

I could lie almost straight and still my feet did not touch anything!

I wish I could figure out if I could put the tray tables on a NAR Tiguan. Ant tell if there is the brace in the seat to bolt to. Can get a set shipped for under $200..

Hello lggytheTiggy,

You only have to ask for some pictures of the front seat back support!

Holes cut in back seat covering for table fixings

You can see the bracing support across the frame which also has the table fixing points.

This is a picture of the frame but looking from the front

Now you can go and feel your seat to see if you can upgrade to have tables.

Thanks Kev I've asked in the past and no one ever followed up these are perfect. Sadly from what I can tell I don't have that too brace pushing in on the seat back I don't feel anything nor do I feel that backer. Odd that they would make different seats for different markets. Maybe when I have the seats out soon I'll pull the seat cover off and see what's back there.

I do however feel a couple sharp points on either side of the seat back about where that brace would be. With a few measurements I could look again. Thanks again

Hello Dan,

From what I can see in the Vw parts catalogue for the Tiguan VW make several seat backrest frames, and they do make reference to with or without table.

You may be lucky!.

I have been and take the table off so I can get you some measurements.

The screws were just started in the thread on the bar. You can get idea how deep the bar is mounted in the seat from the heads of the screws just sticking out above the seat covering.

Definitely some vast differences going on. I've got nothing even around the 9" mark and when the headrest is fully seated the bumps I felt were the ends of the head rest. I forget we have different head rest vs the rest of the world as well. But if I can find a full trim tiguan with a good interior with a wrecked outer I'm hoping to go to full power front seats and real leather. So I guess I can scratch this mod off my eventual list for now.

Only had it a week, still learning & finding new stuff!! 2017 2l DTI 4motion SEL 40k miles.
Love the car, don't like the 20" rims & tyres, looking to changing them, but I like the HUD & massive sunroof.
Also, I like the metallic orange, don't see many!
