New R order

Post by Simonj67 » Sun Jun 06, 2021 6:07 am

Morning all, new tiguan owner coming soon, most recently had a couple of Golf R estates and an S4 Avant then bought an XC90 last year for the extra space but after a crazy offer via Motorway I sold it for £7000 profit so have just placed an order for a Tiguan R with the following extras: Nappa leather, Lapiz, heated rear seats, Nav pro, area view cameras, inductive phone charging and Harman Kardon. Bit of a wait for delivery but if the test drive is anything to go by it's going to be a be drive!

Just waiting for ours to get from the port to the dealer. Same colour & leather as well.

When we ordered there wasn’t one available to see - so haven’t even sat in one let alone test driven one! 😮

Thanks both, looking forward to pics of the leather seats Nick as the configurator only shows the standard non sport seat and can't find anything on the internet, also hope / expect the HK to add the 2 level floor in the boot as I can't see any other way the sub can be added, again hard to find anything concrete on this.

The non sport leather seat is what you’re gonna get

Gollycrush - what makes you say this? I assumed it's just the configurator not being corrected as the brochure says 'Carbon/Nappa...front sport seats with integrated headrest...'
and with the integrated headrest only being on the R seats.

The sports seats you’ll get will be the same as in an R-line albeit carbon bolsters & the single new shape R logo. The contoured sports R seats are only available with the Blue Branded fabric seats, whatever the exterior colour is. ( matches the Lapiz Blue ) I asked the question because ideally I wanted leather.

Hi Nick, yes that's what I have seen but the description for the carbon nappa R option says sports seats with integrated headrest which the ones in the picture are not, I have asked for clarification from the dealer as there are no cars on Auto trader with leather to compare.

Simonj67. ^ Those are the Babies. ( unless things have changed in the last 8 weeks ) A bit disappointing in my opinion.
