      Just purchased a Tiguan SE last week! So excited! Has been my dream car for awhile now.
      Just came back from a trip to Reno.

      I use www.photobucket.com which is pretty easy. Upload your pics to the site from your PC, then copy the IMG code at the bottom of your imported pics into your thread/post.

      That's it, and they give you a lot of free space.

      Give it a shot. It's FREE .

      Niiiice! I grew up in Reno so seeing another Tiguan lounging around my old stomping grounds makes me a bit homesick...

      Thanks for sharing the photos!

      Nice shots.
      The candy white does look good but it was a bit too plain for my liking so i went with blue.

      Enjoy it.

      Love the Candy White with black grill, so good!

      I was looking at the old RS6 style wheels for a while for mine but ended up going a non oem route.

      Thank you! It took me a while but I finally decided on which wheels to get, and I LOVE them! What color is your tig?

      everything is ok with that except for the 66.6 hub, You can run wheels of a larger center bore, but you will need to use run hub-centric rings to bring the larger bore down to our 57.1mm bore. they are not too expensive.

      well now im just glad i didnt say nice rack. it could've been taken out of context

      B&G springs will definitely make a visible difference, i hear good things about the ride quality too. just remember, lowering can be addictive for some. i'd take the Coils over the springs so there is an option to lower/raise as u see fit

      Yes, I agree that coil overs would be better....but my bank account needs to go up a little bit before I can do that...So I think Springs are good for now
