      Is this the switch (or rather, does it have the same functionality as the one) that comes with the SEL models, particularly 2012 ? I know my lights go on/off automagically with ambient light (which...

      I researched that Korean video, no luck in finding anything. Being an old hardware hacker, I purchased an aftermarket mirror switch (similar to THIS ONE) and the ElsaWin package (for schematics)...

      Apparently the Tiguans (at least my 2012 SEL) have the radio antenna built into the rear window defogger (dual purposed "wires"). Normally, this would be OK, but I had an issue. I attempted to...

      I assume the module(s) you installed do NOT have a "fold-on-ignition-off" feature? I have a design for an add-on to do that to but haven't tested it yet.

      If you're into tinkering with your car (or other cars) that the cable works on, definitely worth it. Lot's of "hidden upgrades" in the newer cars that are not activated except in the higher end...

      Yep, as long as it's a genuine (read: expensive) Ross-tech cable and not an eBay knock-off. While some of the pirated versions may work to make the mods, it is unlikely...
