Tiguan 1.5 Elegance facelift

Post by phope » Thu Dec 17, 2020 3:25 pm

Took delivery of a stock 1.5 Elegance DSG in Pure White - a stock car with no factory options at all - built in November 2020 in Wolfsburg and arrived sooner than expected :)

Car arrived yesterday - it was driven up to me by the supplying lease dealer in quite foul weather conditions - arrived with 415 miles on the clock so I'll get them to adjust the starting mileage for the lease calcs.

I had a quick look around yesterday to check for any obvious damage, and again today when weather improved - seems to be fine. Quite like the facelift 19s compared to the earlier SEL wheels - came on Hankook Ventus tyres. Sliders on the temperature controls are simple to use and not quite sure what the negative comments are all about.

Set up the head unit - seems nice and swift in operation and wireless CarPlay is easy to use. At start up, wwapping between the stored user profiles for wife and I seems straightforward enough too for different radio presets, etc. I knew voice activation wasn't standard on the Discover media units, but it gives an option to take you to their online store to pay to activate it - no option though (yet?) once you click through - it just shows the 3 year standard functionality for the We Connect Plus plus the optional data allowance purchases.

When setting up the We Connect app logins, ended up being verified by a video chat with an operator in Germany to confirm access to all the online functions - it was all very efficient and seamless!

Apart from that, it seems quiet, comfortable and well equipped in Elegance trim, and the driving assistance pack is quite a step up from the last VW I had, a 2015 Golf GTD.

Have a genuine VW dog guard to fit next, and a clear plastic film for the rear bumper to sort when the car is properly cleaned and dry.

Also bought a genuine 'Auckland' wheel on eBay to have fitted with a full size tyre so we can have a spare instead of the mobility kit that comes standard now.

Looks great in white, glad you are happy with it. Mine has the same tyres.

If you get round to trying a USB stick I'd be interested to know if yours resumes from where you left off, or keeps defaulting to Track 1 when you restart the car as mine does.

I seem to have solved this by using a native USB-C Sandisk memory stick. Now resumes where I left off.

I wondered how you get we connect plus - I’m shown as “guest” on the app, when I try to show myself as primary user, it says pending verification.....seems a bit of a faff !

Stevo2829....I think you need to register on the WeConnect App online and add your VIN before you can activate the Connect Plus in the car. Mine is in an Elegance and works fine.

As tmg349 says, you have to verify yourself to become primary user. It is a bit of a pain and you'll need to be sitting in the car with both keys to do it. Once it's done though, that's it, you get full WeConnect Plus activation.

Unfortunately it is a faff - I’ve done the sitting in car with both keys several times to become primary user, registered online correctly with VW etc. I contacted customer services who told me to factory reset the car and delete and reinstall app.....still won’t let me register as primary user! Now with VW technical in Germany who keep emailing every couple of days to say they’re working on it. Other than the we connect activation I’ve enjoyed first two weeks with car..
