      Crappy cell phone pic:
      Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...

      What is with the FWD hatchbacks in the "Lifted Wagons Thread" in the 4x4 section? Sorry to be a hater, but those are lame.

      I have learned my lesson about posting my car in the 4x4 section. I got flamed harder than in the MKV forum for it.

      Why would you ruin the car like that? No it probably handles like ass and the mileage is probably bad too.

      It is far from ruined, It serves its purpose for me. I am a rock climber, not in a vehicle, I myself climb rocks. and many of the fire roads that lead to craigs are rutted out. Therefore I dont have a need for 4wd and my drive is at least 2 hours to be able to climb something decent.

      I still get 25mpg combined, and about 26 highway.

      It almost handles better than stock due to the stiffer tiguan springs. I have less body roll than stock, the tires just feel a little less grippy with the taller sidewall and higher cog.


      As for the suspension travel. I have more now, that picture was taken when I still had the stock shocks in the back. I have since put a little stiffer and longer shock in its place.






      Thank you for making assumptions, but you are very wrong sir.

      If you dont understand the need to not own a truck, yet own a car that will go almost anywhere you need to go, well...

      Before: Exhaust dragging everywhere on this road btw


      After:


      Just back to stock for now, but over 7" up from where it was...

      I forgot I had this cool picture. 3 lifted QSW, playing around in the woods. Me and a couple buddies having some fun. The blue car now lives in Colorado, it's again for sale in the Quantum forum.
