      I removed the rear middle headrest. No one will ever sit in the middle and it gives me better visibility in the rear view mirror.

      I actually removed all of my rear rests in my Mk5, nobody has EVER sat back there, and likely no body ever will, until we have kids...but that's why we bought the tiguan...kids someday will grow up with 2 sweet VW's both will probably be bagged

      Nothing to show for it, but yesterday I did the video-in-motion hack on the navigation. Super easy, fast, and free.

      The Audi wheels look good, but i think the Savannah's will look better. In case you wanted my opinion


      Whats the rating on the super sports as far as how much they lower the Tig? Hows the ride?

      I do love the Savannahs too.. I can get the S5 wheels for 1500 ish with pirelli rubber so I am torn. The super sports are neat but not intended for Stock tiguan shocks. Ive heard good things about them on oem gti suspension ...Sooo.. The ultra lows are getting transfered to the Tiggy and I'm gonna rock the supersports for the remainder of time I have left with my gti. Hopefully I get it done today.

      I like the "standard" ones better, but here is a set of two tone ones with tires for $1495....

      Good job on the glovebox wiring there. Is there much slack in the cabling as my median in cable plug is positioned right up next to that black blanking plate so gets crushed when I close the glovebox. Not a godd job by VW so I'll be removing it at some point to resposition if there is enough slack.

      Hello guys and gals, I just came across this thread so thought I would chip in with some pictures of my 2011 R Line. It's still a work in progress but I'm already done a few mods to help make it stand out from a standard Tig.

      These are the nicest wheels I've seen on a Tig yet. Seriously thinking about getting a set for mine.

      That will be handled soon. The rear is sagging a little because i had the stock wheels and tire in the back in this pic.
