      It is super nice! I have always been anti Ford, but the Explorer made me re consider. It is much bigger than it seems...I drive it a lot, but it's my wifes daily, and she really likes it also!

      That's a mighty fine looking '10. The new springs really make a noticeable difference in the look of the Tiguan. How is the overall ride quality? I'm sure the handling is noticeably better.

      Thanks! It actually settled about another 1/4 inch or so, and sits about perfect IMHO....Unless you want it to be super low, which is a whole nother story.....
      The ride quality is very similar to stock, with less body roll around corners. Very pleased with it....

      9/25 - Tint!!

      Had the front 2 windows tinted to match the rear windows with the factory tint.

      It was a bit of a challenge to find someone that carries, or is able to get the right film that matches the factory tint on the back windows, but I was determined!

      Let me know if you are looking and I can point you in the right direction.

      I am not sure were you might find it in your area. I called around till I found a place that happened to still have it in stock, here in San Diego.

      The part number for the correct film is AT35GNSRHPR (green). It is a Llumar product

      The factory is 35%, and so is the part number i mentioned above. The problem is that the factory stuff is probably sandwiched in between two pieces of glass and the new stuff is "stuck" to the inside glass.
      It may be a tad bit greener as well, but definitely not darker.

      It is about a 97% - 98% match. In person you cannot tell unless you are specifically looking for differences, or if you are a tinter or something....

      Hitch install was very simple! Took about 10 minutes. I didn't do the wiring though...Maybe one day if i ever need to tow anything besides my bikes..

      A guy installed his but didn't completely remove the plastic cover...Looks real clean! Makes me wish i would have thought to do it, but you'll never see under there so not a big deal..

      Did some coding.
      Windows up/down with the key fob, brake lights will flash if I slam on the break pedal, turned off the DRL's etc.

      Also washed it with help from a friend

      I'm quite out of the loop with the whole VAG-COM thing. How much are they these days? I'd love to do some of the coding mods. Can the 3 flash of the turn signal feature be turned off?

      You can turn the 3 blinks off directly from the settings in one of the MFA menus, at least you can in my 2012. I did the same in my GTI too. I think it's under the convenience menu.
