Hello from Belgian member

Post by thend » Thu Feb 13, 2020 3:17 pm

Hello all, I am Tim from Belgium and have found this very interesting online forum a while ago.
Have read a lot of posts already and will do more like this in the future without any doubt.
Have ordered a Tiguan (SWB) 2 weeks ago and now waiting for delivery somewhere in April.
Trim levels do not correspond with UK ones, bought a 1.5TSI 150HP manual (Comfortline) with some options.
Chosing the exact configuration gave me stress, due to delimited budget, so much is possible...
Did not go for a R-Line, chose to go for a lower trim level, but with some (costly) options.
Hope to have a reliable car for many years (without kangaroo symptoms), as good as my current 2010 Golf 6 Estate.

Hi Tim, welcome from Scotland.
This is a great forum, been very useful to me as a recent VW convert and have learned a lot.
Look forward to hearing more from you.
cheers

Hi Tim, welcome to the forum. Feel free to ask about anything Tig related, and I’m sure someone will come up with an answer, hopefully the right one😉

Thanks to you all. I am reading a lot of posts at the moment, in order to learn more about the Tiguan.
But basic knowledge is already present as I am very interested in cars. Also invested quite a lot of time in composing my Tiguan (Car Configurator, ..).
I hope I can also be added value for the forum as well. Early next month without any doubt as I will see the Tiguan facelift live in Geneva. I hope to take some detailed pictures over there, will post them. You all will be curious I think ;) ....

I finally collected my car last Wednesday, 15th of May.
Almost 2 months of delay due to Corona lockdown here in Belgium.
Collected the car in 20 minutes, just had to do some paperwork and that was it.
Due to the revised procedure, no detailed info about the car was given. VW has installed a special call centre where you ask your questions related to the car, if needed (my dealer had a backlog of 1200 cars which were waiting for delivery).
Car is great, really enjoyed the 200km until now, package composed is really beautiful for us.
I already like the smooth ride and comfort, and also the build quality of the car.
Of course other qualities will be discovered during the next days/weeks/months.
I will add some picures asap...

Great to hear it’s finally arrived. The steep learning curve starts now :D. Any questions feel free to ask, as I’m sure someone will have an answer!
Yes, pics please!
Oh! By the way, the15th was Friday, Wednesday was the 13th, unless the Belgian calendar is different to ours :lol:
