Welcome to my little thread!
Ok first of all, I'm Alex, 31 and pretty new to modding cars and this is my first VW! I first wanted a golf R but I realized it was quite small. So I decided to inject some steroids in it. That's how I got my tiguan R-Line 2015 pepper grey/brown leather (54k miles) on mid-january 2019. The thing is, I've lost a lot of cool features that the Golf R has that I like so I will try my best to make my own Tiguan R!
I've been looking at this forum for quite a while now and I made a list of mods that I want to be done on my Tig!
I think it's cool to know where everyone's at with their mods and I wanted to keep track of my build slowly but surely!
That is a long term project with a lot in mind. I want to create my personnal Tiguan R with nothing too fancy looking. I once wanted a all black and dark grey look... but finally nope. I will keep the stainless trims, the OEM 19" rims and the overall classy look. Warranty is gone mid summer 2019 and I will do the chip tunning once then.
Please feel free to ask questions about anything. Your input and opinions are also more than welcome! I know those threads helped me a lot while I was looking at what I wanted to achieve with my car. Now that I'm actually doing it, I hope it can help others!
