Have a 2022 Tiguan. It’s called an mk2 right?
Lots of info online about mk8 and SFD to do long coding using Ross Tech. Is the same for my 22 tig?

thinking of buying a cable but if I can’t do long coding without SFD access, then I will get odb11

I am in Canada of our cars (tigs) are equipped different just for point of clarification.

not looking to do anything too serious to my car for now. Just seat belt chime, ignition chime. Etc.

For the most part currently 2022 models of all platforms are pretty much locked out. 2020 and 21 had limited access. So currently none of the cables are worth buying.

Also we are not to discuss disabling safety devices like the seatbelt chime on here.

Okay. Sorry didn’t realize that was a topic to avoid.
how about change look of the dashboard? 😄
I have had an mk4, an mk1 Tiguan, very disappointed to here we are locked out.
Guess I will get the odb 11 pro.
Which model is recommended the one that comes with the 200 credits?

If by Mk8 you mean Mk8 golf then I can tell you (I’ve just purchased one) that you cannot access coding in any form on them at this point. There is talk amongst the OBD11 community that they may have some limited licensing MAY come around but others are saying there’s no way that VW will allow that. The issue is around VW not wanting to take any responsibility for anything that people may change, seat belt chimes being an obvious safety one, that could leave VW facing court for failing to warn customers not to wear their seat belts etc etc etc. sounds to me as if coding days are over !

Very minimal access like we said. Not like the old days. Too many people miscoding modules and bricking them and wanting them replaced under warranty. Tuning is the same. Only current tuners are piggy back due to the heavily encrypted modules. Maybe in a few years you can but presenty no.

All these devices work in the same way, and it's the access VW allowed to the control modules that allows this. If on the Golf mk8 and Tig mk2.5 this is locked out, then none of them will work.

P.S. Yes I said Tig mk 2.5, if it has the newer front with the edges of the lights tailing further back, then it's mk 2.5 or 'mk2 facelift'

This is Mk 2 from 2016 to 2020

I just got off the line with ross-tech via phone. They said the tig uses older technology unlike the golf mk8 r.
Could I have been given wrong info? They said they consulted with a tech.

If you find a way. Let us know. We are just relaying what we've been told and what few members have new 22 models have tried.

Another Ross Tech dealer I spoke to said he was 99.99% sure as there has been no fundamental change since 2018 and it’s not a mark 8 or a ID 4.
Will report back.

FWIW I checked on line with OBD11 and it states it covers Golf to 2021 !! So my 2022 is not there !!

it appears to say the same about Tiguan !!
Sorry to hear. To sound like a broken record, if odb 11 has sfd support I do not know why you would
not be able to make changes at least to some
basic mods.

On the Tiguan front I am not to worried about it. Ordered a Ross Tech cable yesterday. The 2022 Tiguan does not need SFD support for almost all functions from my research. Of course I will report back here.
