Hi folks,

A few photos of my shiny new vw tiguan. Still trying to figure out how most things work - but so far I've been impressed by all gadgets, colours and buttons.

Happy to answer any questions.

Regards from sunny Cyprus
Chris

Hey Chris
Very nice, I bet your happy, did you have to explain MY18 changes to the showroom staff? how long did it take from factory to Cyprus?
Enjoy all the gadgets especially the aircon lol

Thank you! Its nice to get a new toy!

@Wraggster - They literally had no clue about the MY18 changes. All they said was that I was right that car came with the new media screen! They knew nothing else about MY18 changes.
Dealership was honestly useless. I called them yesterday just randomly to ask when my car would arrive, and they were like 'Oh its here'. I was like 'But why didnt you call me!?' and she replied 'Well....we told you it would come some time in July!'.
Seriously....

I'll upload some more photos later once I figure out how to rotate attachments....

@Wraggster - depends if you're buying the first round :))

So - some first thoughts about the car.
Positives:
- Very practical. Lots of storage spaces. Easy access. Rear seats spacious & comfortable.
- Interior striking. New MY18 screen and active dashboard are clear and bright.
- Dynaudio is impressive. Beats my MB E350 Conv Harman Hardon hands down.
- Ride is soft and gentle with 18". Nizza alloys are v cool.
- 190HP has quite a bit of punch to it.

Negatives:
- Ambient light somewhat disappointing. Just some white led strips on the doors. My mums GLE is much prettier inside with the ambient light (you can change colours to blue/orange/etc).
- Sunroof opens only half way.
- ACC somewhat confusing to use. Distronic Plus in my MB is much easier to use.

Let me know what you guys think.

Hi guys
Waiting for my Tiguan to arrive in early October as they told me from the dealership, but how can I find out the build week for my car?

Dealership should tell you. Then after after your build week, the car should get a chassis number, which the dealer should be able to give you. You can then use that number to bid for a number plate. From the build week, you should count 1-1.5 months to collecting the car.

I'm hoping mine arrived at the port today, it was built 5 weeks ago. The Larnaca dealer said that VW Cyprus shipments arrived every two weeks, hence mine should be here. Shipment 36 arrived on the 29 August, mine is on shipment 37, I've had to pester the salesman to get any information. Good luck

Thanks guys Wraggster & chrisx0x

I called them today and found out mine was built on week 34, so now it should be on its way over to Cyprus! Can't wait! Expecting to receive it in 3 weeks :D

Let me add a +1 for the boot liner there, it's fantastic and has already saved the boot floor getting muddy.

Do you have a part number for the boot liner as there seems several types, also is
that hard or soft rubber.
cheers
