Finally I decided to make a topic about my car.

Without the help from this forum and other forums I couldn't had done this. Thank you to everyone that shares info.

If you have questions regarding my mods you should post your question, I will do my best to answer.

It's a 2009 140hp with Tiptronic transmission (6spd)

it's a Sport version and from Factory has the following:

- Rcd510

- Electric Mirrors

- 18 Rims

- Park assist

and it was ordered with the following extras:

- Leather seats, driver electric

- Light Pack (front door handles with red leds)

- Off-Road button (it was possible in 2009)

- Panoramic Roof

- Rear view camera with moving lines

- Tiptronic transmission

- 230v plug

Mods from previous owner:

- Bluetooth Parrot CK3100 (that I removed)

I bought the car in October 2013.

Since I bough it I did the following mods (not in order)

-Seat memory


- Kessy with Easy open


- Adaptative Cruise Control (ACC): this might be the most impressive because it never was available in the Tiguan. In this video if follows the car in front, becaus the set speed is 90km/h


- Homelink on frameless mirror


- Mirror close via Fob with 1sec Comfort time


- Front DRL (aftermarket)

There can't be much more left to do now Ruben, except maybe fitting a RHD 12 point electric drivers seat to your passenger side and memory setting lol. That's one mod I would consider especially the memory bit as I'm 6"1' and SWMBO is 5"2' lol.
