Re: First time VW Tiguan Buyer queries - is this the car I hope it will be?!

If you go by the actual boot floor area which is what really matters the Octavia boot is much bigger than a Tiguan boot. Boot width: Measured just inside the boot opening the Tiguan boot is roughly 1000mm wide, the Octavia 1090mm (or nearly 4 inches wider than the Tiguan). Boot length: From the bot...

The standard car is fine, there’s three of us and there’s plenty of room for everything. Before that managed just fine with an Octavia estate and that boot is only a little bigger.

Re: Tiguan X Coupe

Just like the x4 and x6, take away the practicality and usefulness of a 4x4/suv eg x3 and x5 and end up with something only decent for the school run and kids in the back.

Re: Golf Mk8 aka things to come In future Tiguans

Its a good point, they are now like backward steps where new ones used to always offer better build quality. Its only going to get worse after the virus as they'll be looking to save even more money to recoup masses of lost turnover.

Re: Golf Mk8 aka things to come In future Tiguans

As seems to be the modern VW way can we expect the same cost cutting that resulted in the Mk8 Golf to be applied to next Tiguan. Here’s a comparison between Golf mk 7.5 and Mk 8. https://youtu.be/X48c9lFX3NY I'm out. No chance I'd buy a car with an interface like that. Current Tig will be staying!

Re: Wet dog

I had a similar issue with a car a few years back and I sorted it with a gizmo I bought from Halfords. It is basically a canister you leave in the car which when it is set off fills the car and air con etc with a gas that kills the mould and whatever else is living in the car systems. You then vent...

Re: Excellent front speaker upgrade

I have the Harmon Kardon in my 335 and it is very good for a factory sound system. We had the Canton in our old Octavia and that was ok but not a patch on the HK. Didn’t bother in the Tig and tbh I’m fairly impressed with the out of the box system, certainly glad I didn’t waste money on the Dyn.
