The camera is certainly a nice to have, but not worth the wire cutting needed to instal it outside the factory, so this addition makes this version even more sensible.

Has anyone here installed the mud flaps on their Tiguan, was surprised to find out that the Tiguan highline doesnt come with mud flaps, the local dealer is quoting Rs 6900 for all four.

Yup , the highline doesn't come with Mudflaps.

Got it from Aliexpress, much cheaper than the dealer price.

No issues so far.

Can you please send me a PM with the ali express link, I saw a few on ali express, but it will be good to buy the same stuff that you bought.

Hey I was able to find out the XUKEY thing on aliexpress,

I read some of the reviews and it said that the front fits just fine but rear doesnt.

Did it fit properly on your Tiguan front and rear?
Did you have to make any changes in the car? (create holes, etc)
How long did it take for it to reach?

I'm looking at picking up a used Tiguan Highline which has been recently repossessed and awaiting the Court Order (was leased to a company). Should happen shortly and a very good deal is expected for a car slightly under two years (not confirmed), and about 15k kms on the Odo. Expect a very good deal, in case I'm not picking it, don't mind extending the offer to fellow BHPians here. Will update as soon as I hear. Any advice on what to look out for in a used Tiguan will obviously be very helpful.

Both front and back looks OK on mine. I remember it needed a couple of additional screws to be screwed on to the car
Cant recall exactly how long it took , but generally all my aliexpress orders reach around 30-40 days after ordering.

But I am pretty sure that something is there because I don’t get it in the initial part of the drive.
Thought it could be the AC flaps not closing even though it is in re-circulation mode. But if it is flaps are not closed I should get all smells from the road like diesel/petrol, smoke from buses and autos etc. But I am getting only 1 smell something like the mud smell.
Has anyone experienced it before. Any pointers would be helpful.
Had A/C disinfectant done at the ASS. Yet to notice the MUD smell as i was informed that the disinfectant smell will last for 4-5 days. Hope it helps to solve the problem. But was informed that if it doesn't solve the problem then the dash has to be removed and some evaporator has to be checked or something like that . Fingers crossed I do not want the factory fitted dash to be touched. Any thing else needs to be checked ? Any pointers ?

Have started negotiations with VW for the Tiguan Comfortline. The dealership quoted 80k for the 4 year service plan. Does that seem like the right amount? If one service is 15-18k wouldn't it work out cheaper just to pay than the service plan?

The amount varies from city to city, at least thats what I was told. Ask your local dealer how much they charge for the service, anything less than 20k per service is cheaper. But I think that service plan includes from free alignment balancing or some sort of discount on alignment balancing.

Today I noticed that when I use my windshield spray (washer fluid) I get the washer fluid smell inside the cabin for like 3 to 5 seconds and then it goes away. I dont know where the air intake for the AC is, but how does the washer fluid sprayed on the windshield goes in that intake. Can anyone clarify this please?

Hi, I think you should go for 235/60/R17. You are right, 215/65/R17 isn't available in India and you need to check around a lot for it. Even then am not sure if you will find it. I don't think you should have any issue with the extended Warranty

Regular service cost in Bangalore is around 18.5 K INR without alignment etc. However, at 60 K KMs the cost is going to go up as the transmission oil needs to be replaced. That is going be nearer to 40 K INR.

Sreeji, at the base of the windscreen there is an air intake for fresh air. You can see that probably when the bonnet is lifted up or you strain your neck to check when bonnet is closed.

Try with the fresh air circulation switched to off. You will not get the smell.

Nikhil
