Looks good. Just wish the facelift Tiguan’s still had rear exhaust pipes rather than the frankly embarrassing fake chrome ones built into the bumper.

I can tell you from an owner of an RLine where they come stock...they don't stay shiny unless you get down there and scrub!

Looking good Walestigy69, however, and this has come up before in relation to the exhaust tips, the small ‘forked’ clips that can be seen in your picture of each tip are used to grip the existing exhaust pipes, and each tip looks like it needs to be pushed on further so they can grip.
I found that by using a block of wood and a rubber mallet I could get them on so the ends were sitting flush with the exhausts. You may find that it requires quite a hefty thump with the mallet for them to go on fully.

When the car eventually arrives, I'd love to replace the chrome "exhaust" trims in the rear bumper with the ones from the new face lift Black Line version (that we don't get in the UK it seems), that I've seen on the internet. At least with them being gloss back, they blend into the rest of the gloss black on the diffuser. Don't suppose anyone has access to the part number for the R-Line face lift black line trim part numbers do they ?

Like these:

When you look further back, you just see how well they blend in as gloss black

I’ve contacted a local company to get a quote of a black gloss wrap. Will confirm the price!
