      Are the side mirrors supposed to dip in reverse on the SEL-P R?

      not both of them, just the passenger side will dip. and only if you put the mirror adjustment in the right setting, basically you need to move the selector to the symbol with the "R" on it (i believe).

      i do not like it very much, it helps if parallel parking, but other than that it was more of a pain than a help.

      I found that setting the mirror helped. You can set it to where you want it to dip, and how far out to the side you want it. Then it will learn and revert to the same based on memory. That is why it is only on vws with memory modules.

      I had planned to wait a little while, but the dealer had one of the few NON R-line SEL-P's, so I snatched that sucker up and got a good deal in the process. Pyrite silver on black, which I think looks great.

      Glad to join the club!

      Welcome to the SEL-P non-rline club. There are a few of us on here and it's extra cool since they discontinued the trim for 2020.

      Hi all,
      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?

      Nice! I had an identical white one before I got my yellow one. The black spoiler is standard on your trim (SEL premium r line). Hopefully you didn't pay more for it!

      Also I'm looking at the sly bracket as an option. Although I don't know if it'll work either because of the sensors and camera.

      Very nice. North Park VW? I got the first SEL-P RLine they sold, back in July, and it looks identical. I have the slate grey seats. I also added an actual license plate mount to the rear because they way they just screwed the plate into the back bumper didn't seem very stable.

      What did you use for the rear plate mount?

      They mounted the one that came with the car to mine.. It's very solid.

      I used this, slybrackets.com. It only took about 8 minutes to install and looks like it will fit on your vehicle. It works great.

      considering going with sly- but need to measure and talk to them as the 360 cam and park sensors are mounted in the stupidest locations, and I'm not sure I can get the bracket to mount without obstructing them (in multiple different locations).

      would the state grant exeptions then to mounting a plate? i mean you could argue that it would make the vehicle not as safe.
      never understood the reason behind having a front plate anyway.

      I’m pretty sure engineers got together and decided let’s put the parking sensors in the stupidest places possible so people can’t put on aftermarket front license plates. I got a platypus tow plate since on the forums it supposedly doesn’t interfere with the sensors on the Tiguan. WRONG! They don’t slap cars together like this...

      I was going to put mine on the far right side (if one is sitting in the driver's seat) but there was some type of sensor there so had to move it over to the left side. I guess as they add more tech there are only so many places to add sensors etc.

      As I said, they mounted the OEM rear Arteon mount on mine. So not sure why your dealer didn't/ why they're telling you there isn't one for this car.

      Well I've searched for one and I can't find a part number for an Arteon one. Likely they used one for a different model for yours too, as I've yet to see a specific one and most I've heard were just mounted with two screws like they did with mine. If I'm mistaken and you have a part number, I hope uou share with the group.

      I tried the Sly but could not get it to work without obstructing some sensor partially. Anyone try magnets?
