230 R-Line Tech different on DVLA

Post by tony1979 » Fri Jun 28, 2019 7:41 pm

Hi folks.

I'm getting my 230 TSi R Line Tech delivered on Tuesday, and have now received the reg number. When I search on the DVLA site, it comes back as "Volkswagen Tiguan Sel Tsi 4Motion" and the VW App is reflecting the same, but only when entering my reg. Why could that be, as the order definitely states R Line Tech?

That’s strange for sure. I advise you speak with your dealer ASAP as it sounds like human error somewhere.

Yep, same here, I only noticed when the V5 doc turned up in the post.
As 'Fastbuck' has stated you need to inform your dealer as they need to fill in an official VW change form which then gets sent off to the DVLA in order to correct the trim level shown on all data bases and docs relating to the car.
However, it is not a quick process, it's been 5 weeks and I still have not received an updated V5 doc..........

My dealer told me that my Car is correct with them VW and DVLA have done it wrong and said i would have to call them because of data protection.

My 230 also says 'Tiguan SEL TSI 4Motion S-A', no mention of R-Line Tech. Going in on Thursday so will mention it to them.

I've contacted my dealership..they said they're going to send my v5 off and get DVLA to rectify it as it is indeed incorrect....could take up to 8 weeks he said
