Hey everyone, just ordered a Tiguan R-Line 240 Bi-TDI 4 Motion DSG in Pure White, cloth interior, Reversing camera, keyless go and remote tailgate and the Dynaudio pack.

just had a build week confirmed of week commencing 27th March.

Im coming from a 2014 Audi S3 Sportback Quattro S-Tronic so a bit of a change!

can't wait for it to arrive though I will be sad to see the S3 go. I waited 6 months for the S3 so I'm hoping it won't be that long for the Tiguan!!!

Hi I am from South Shields, did you order from Pulman in Sunderland?
When did you order, that's a quick build date if you have just ordered?

Hi TRSTIG. Good spec vehicle. My build week is 20 March, so it will be interesting to see who gets delivery first.

no I did some online shopping. Pullman VW on Newcastle Rd don't do leasing.

I did go to Lookers VW on Scotswood Road in Newcastle for a test drive as Pullman only had an R-Line in the showroom. Lookers PCP or Leasing options weren't even on the same planet as any other quotes I got.

I made the order on 20th February. I was told there was a delay in ordering due to a problem with the rear R-Line bumpers but another garage told me that was resolved. Ive been told to expect a 4 month wait. still better than a 6 month wait like my current car!

thanks man, I dont know if its the suspension of Audis, the seats or a combination of that but its sooooo much more comfortable in the Tiguan. Seats are nice and "huggy" too. Yes I know its a totally different kind of car but still, looking forward to the change.

hey,

I've seen one white R-Line. - debadged but with the R-Line logo badge on the left where Tiguan was. couldn't stop looking at it! :D in fact, reading posts I think it was maybe your car! I saw it going up Chester road towards shell garage at grindon.

also was at Ikea in gateshead on Wednesday and saw an SE, still nice to look at. I like the diamond seat design in the other models too.

Haha that's me mate.

Get a lot of looks in it, I thinks it's because there's not many on the road yet.

I've been trying to find a picture of the LED headlight cutoffs. can you take a pic of yours against your garage or something? :)

Hi TRSTIG, I'm sure I'm not alone in being curious as to why you require the cut-off info?

Basically if you park in front of your garage say 10 feet or so away then turn on your headlights so they are shining on the garage door and take a photo. (Preferably from inside the car)

Like this. A pic from the US so ours should be reversed.

Line Font Parallel Display device Electronic device


Really hoping for the blue tint as I missed that in my S3. That's got LED headlights but they don't have a great cutoff, or a blue tint as they're not a projector lens. If I'm losing people here then oh well :roll: :geek:

I had a mk5 golf gti before my S3 and decided to do a little modding. So I changed the lenses in the projector oem xenon headlights to improve the cutoff. I also put integrated drl and indicators in replacing the bottom part of the light. I'll try and find a pic tomorrow.

I'm also coming from a 2014 S3 and although I've loved the current car I think its the right move. Just hope the wait is not going to be too long.

Ohh my from a S3 to a Tiguan must be quite the change. My change wasn't quite as drastic but was nonetheless apparent. From a x1 sdrive28 m sport ( what a mouthful) to a Tiguan 330.
