      There's like two in our town of 11000. I see CRV's all the time to the point where they make me wana puke. VW's in general are pretty rare around here. Only 2 CC's and two MKVI Jetta's and other than that it's a few MKIV and MKV Jetta'sand Passats. ----Mike

      We don't see many Tigs here in western NC and odds are that we have the only one in town. I work in Georgia and spend a good bit of time in Atlanta. I see a more there, but they are far from being common. We see tons of CRVs, RAV4s and X3s and more GLKs and Cayannes too. Most of the Tigs we see are 2WD as that by far dominates what the dealers here in the SE sell. 4Mo is very rare, but apparently they are very much desired. As our was being unloaded off the truck, a number other sales personnel at the dealership saw it and we're about to start making some calls before the new car manager told them it was spoken for.

      Yesterday.. saw two Tiguans..
      one in Northern Jersey, the other in Queens, NY. What a rare day.
      Both are driven by female.
      Did I just buy myself a female car???? no wonder my wife like it so much, and approved the purchase
      How do I man up this car.

      After 2 years, I still really love my Tigger. The 6M and A3 springs really make it like a big Rabbit. It's WAY more comfortable than a Golf though.

      Don't worry about it. Mine is the Wild Cherry Red, as it was the only "color", other than blue (too dark for my taste). I don't want to alienate all other Tig owners that read this post - all Tigs look awesome, but we wanted something you don't see all the time, so we opted for this one.
      I wanted something lighter in color, like white or silver, but all Tigs I saw on the road or at the dealer even were white or silver or grey or black. I don't really like the gold/champagne color on a car, so... it was between red and blue. Blue lost as it gets too hot in the summer. So red it was.

      Back to the original topic, driving a Tig is manly enough.
      Something like this might be too extreme...

      Saw many Tiguans near SF. Also was in Walnut Creek and saw an unbelievable number of Tiguans and Passat Wagons - Bay area cool on VWs

      I have seen quite a few Tiguans in the Twin Cities area but I just thought that was because we have 5 Volkswagen dealerships in the area.

      I have seen quite a few Tiguans in SF but not as many as CRVs and RAV4s. I am the only VW Tiguan owner in my family. My brother owns a CRV and bro in law owns a RAV4.

      There are a lot of Tiguans in Bay Area, obviously not as many as CRV's or RAVs, but still a lot of them. I see quite a few R-lines as well, maybe one a week. Also, there a ton of Tiguans in Tahoe this winter season, mostly with 4motion. It really has surprised me.
