      Our 2012 with 19" Savannah alloys seems a bit laggy off the line compared to the 2010 we had that wore 18" Pasadena alloys.

      My 2010 Highline had them, and it was a relatively early production model. In terms of the mirrors, apart from the body color they were identical to what is on the 2012 I have now.

      I think you'll find a few different mirrors on the market, but they are more to do with trim levels and motorization (for the optional folding mirrors on SEL/R-Line/Highline models) rather than...

      Every time I go in for service or a warranty repair (sadly this is too often with these Tiguans), the Service Advisor checks the vehicle for presence of modification and makes me sign a disclaimer...

      The safest path might be to pick an empty, switched slot in the fuse box (left side of dash) and run a new wire up the A-piller and towards the overhead console for your detector rather than tapping...

      The 15,000 Km interval is probably not optimum- I would consider the 6-8000 Km interval to be more realistic for city driving and short trips.

      Considering you have the equivalent of about 90,000...

      A short drive around is usually insufficient to fully re-charge a dead battery- it is better to trickle charge and test to ensure a full charge has been taken.
