      Just registered it a few days ago. When my plates come in next week and I swap everything over I will take pics. It was in a bag with the front plate mount (which I'm not using but kept), so I doubt it's from a different model.

      Looks nice! So how much were they, like $250 shipped? Also how easy were they to install?

      Brand new here. Picked up SEL-P RLine with 4Motion.
      Immediately tinted the windows with ceramic UV protection, picked up the custom sunshield, added the black spoiler option, and had the dealer install a clear bra protectant on the bumpers and side mirrors.

      Made the dealer add on the coat hanger accessory for the driver side seat. I know, weird... But I have a sports jacket on most days.

      Down in South Texas and am looking for a solution for the front license plate that doesn't require drilling, similar to what was stated earlier in the thread. The tow hooks are out it seems due to the radar sensors.

      Anyone tried rare earth magnets or tape?



      I can't speak regarding whether or not it will interfere with the parking sensors as I have an SEL R-Line however I literally ended up with a ~$5 solution after researching the crap out of different front plate mounting options many of which were expensive. I used the front plate holder that came with the car and turned it upside down so the one side that does not have a lip is at the top, that way the holes in the bracket line up with the bumper properly when attaching it with the zip ties and the screws which slightly protrude the back of the bracket touch nothing. I used two 14 inch zip ties (one on each side going through the two holes in the bracket) and two 3/8 inch wood screws for the two holes in the top of the plate to screw into the bracket. It has been car wash tested and high speed highway tested several times and is holding solid! Hope this help somebody cause this was a PITA trying to figure out a good solution without desecrating the bumper!!! Looks good and no holes, drilling or otherwise required. New to posting to this site so will see if I can get a picture posted.

      Awesome! How is the car feeling after the tune? I would think a lot more peppy Also does the transmission seem to handle the extra power with out any hiccups?

      Wow that sounds like a legitimate solution. Plz do post a pic. Use imgur.com as the hosting site and right click, copy image location, and then paste the link within these brackets (below) to get it to display on vortex!

      You seemed concerned in the apr thread that the tune didn't take. Has it been a little better since?

      after discussing what my boost numbers should be with the tune (27-29psi) and i am running a 28.7psi it should be there. honestly the long gears of our 8 speed is most likely the blame for making it feel the way it does.

      im going to be going to our local drag strip either this weekend or the next, and get some test and tune and logs run on the car. see what happens from there.

      Like this. But is your plate covering the front 360 camera?

      That was my caveat, I have an SEL R-Line so do not know about the 360 camera or parking sensors. What I can tell you is there is a one (single) sensor behind the grille off to the right of the plate and for the life of me cannot figure out what it is for however I have had the plate on for two weeks and everything is working properly.

      yeah huge caveat i missed- Can't mount it there because our 360 cam is right below the rectangular euro plate filler panel.

      I took off my temp tag, and found the part number on the plate mount. The bozos at my dealership (don't get me started) put it on upside down, but here goes:

      3A0 943 199; Appears to be for a Jetta VI, which is strange, since it was in the bag with the front arteon one. Here it is for purchase:

      Thanks, I'm happy with the one I bought for ten bucks. It is strange that they don't have a model-specific one and are just using "whatever works" from a different model.

      A bit more than that - 279 Euro delivered so $305, but new and OEM. The Mirror glass can be removed with fingers or trim tool and then there are just two tabs the move and the cap slides off. You have to press out the blindspot warning lamp and then swap and re-install. About 45 mins in total.

      So I called VW of america a while back about the rear mounting plat and here is the response I got...

      1:08:24 Crystal R said:

      I understand. So it is at the discretion of the dealership and the state regulations if the mounting pad is something that is to be supplied when purchasing the vehicle. Since this is with the condition in which the vehicle was sold, this is something you should speak with the management team over the dealership about.

      If you look in parts24.de, there is a specific mounting pad for the Arteon, I asked the dealership to supply it, but like everything else the request was ignored.

      Installed the euro Arteon R-line Steering Wheel , although I forgot to check to see if had heated steering capabilities. Look like I’ll have a Summer wheel and a Winter Wheel.

      Looks awesome, I had that same exact wheel on my MK7 Golf R I traded in for the Arteon, def was a nice wheel but it was not heated either so maybe they just don't make that model heated anyways.

      Such a big upgrade. It still baffles how, to this day, VW still decides to put a basic wheel on their flagship models (Arteom/CC), even those with the R-Line package! It’s madness!
