On order!

Hello all,

So after few weeks of looking at 2nd hand Tiguans I decided to buy a new one. This was mostly down to the fact that the new ones have been slightly updated for 2019 and some good discount i was getting.

I did have my doubts, after reading and seeing the front assist braking issue being discussed, but i suppose this is a minority number of cars and all car manufacturers have some problems.

I currently have a Golf Match 2.0L TDI MK 6 which i really like and has been very reliable for me. So i decided to stick it out with VW.

So I currently have on order (28/08/19)
Tiguan R Line Tech 2.0L TDI 190 4 motion DSG
Oryx White
Vienna Leather with rear heated seats
Nav Pro
Dynaudio sound
DCC and Tyre pressure monitor.

Been quoted 14 - 16 weeks so just got to wait....

In the mean time I have this amazing forum to keep me busy and updated of what to expect. Most of you seem very happy with your cars.

Regards
Neil

Hi Neil

So I’d reckon a build week of week 40 so hopefully you’ll see the car just before end October. Keep us posted on the ‘Delivery times’ topic.

My 2.0 Tsi SEL is at stage 5b - waiting for shipping at Emden having ordered on 26/7.

That's good to know. I will keep you updated. So it will be sooner the time quoted of 14-16 weeks?

Here’s hoping you’ll get the car mid October.
There was a post saying the 190 Tdi engine has disappeared off the VW configurator. What might your dealer be able to say here?

Welcome.

Hoping your options don't put the list price (before any discounts but not including registration and first years vehicle tax) over the dreaded £40k barrier. If it has then you'll be paying a lot more road fund licence in years 2 to 6 inclusive.

I was quoted 26 weeks delivery for mine and it arrived in 12.

The 190 is a decent strong engine but it won't release its full potential until you've got a couple of k on it.

Re the dreaded £40k , I would expect this configuration to go well above the £40k mark. The list price on mine was £38900 without any options and Oryx white paint is a £1000 option on its own

Hello

Thanks for your replys. Yes the car did go over the 40k list price mark so I will have to pay the extra tax for years 2-6. However i saved a quite a bit on the list price and got it less than what carwow quoted by 1k so depends how you look at it. I would of gone for the BiTurbo but this met my overall needs in the long run with the Mrs driving it and 2 kids. I was very tempted to buy the Biturbo but I would of just kept burning fuel with my very heavy foot. Also the fake exhaust trim put me off! I just dont undertand that.

I bought through Drivethedeal and everything so far has been fantastic.

I been naughty. I went against my word and changed the order to the BiTdi. The dealer let me with no penalties. I was going to pay the 2-6 year tax regardless so just made sense in the end... Now i'm going to leave the order alone.

We bought ours via DtD, I did loads of searching and they were cheapest, are you dealing with James?

Yes I am. Yes they where the cheapest and then when you get it on PCP you get the deposit contribution which all works out great. Chuck in all the extras.

However I have just messaged him this morning regarding the black rear spoiler now coming up on the configuration. Told him I will not accept a car with a black spoiler. It just feels like a rollercoaster ride at the mo. I really like the car but sometimes there are principles you have to stick to.
