Congrats on the purchase! However, am I reading this right? You got the Topline AT for 17.31 OTR?? My dealer is quoting 17.20 OTR for Highline AT. This is minus any extended warranty/maintenance pack. I see that you’re in Thane and my dealer is in Mumbai Suburbs but that’s a difference of about 2.3L for the same variant (19.56L is the OTR for Topline in Mumbai suburbs).

More hatchbackish than ever. All round colour only suits heftier ones read Fortuner, Endeavour, X7,Q7.

Hey throttlehead, thank you for the wishes.
I said 17.31 but the breakdown is as such:

Ex Showroom price: ₹1595200 (December 2021 month)
Insurance: ₹41,000
TCS: ₹15,952
Delivery Kit: ₹15,000
BH Registration registered on 5th Jan 2022: ₹36,477
Extended Warranty: ₹29,499

OTR: ₹17,33,128 and not ₹17.31.

Registration breakdown:
1250 - bracket
900 - Fastag
200 - Service charges
2000 - Agent charges
1500 - Bank hypothecation charges
30627 - RTO ( I believe this is the charge among other charges I will have to pay every 2 years)

I went for my own insurance at 28k from Acko but the SA managed me to make me opt for their tie up at a reduced price of 41k instead of 75k. The reason he told me was that Acko didn't have a cashless garage tie up (I couldn't find it as well on the website), and given this was a VW purchase, I kinda wanted to have a peace of mind for any situation that might arise where I have to go through the insurance claim route.

Insurance was the last payment I made and I just assumed that my OTR will come down to ₹17.31.

I jumped to the Taigun because I had a hunch that I might be able to bring down the OTR from the claimed ~₹ 19+. I was already negotiating for the Polo on the BH series and insurance and found that there was a significant difference in prices while still being able to add the extended warranty.

Hope this helps man!

Ah! The difference is in the registration, state registration is between 1.8-2.1L depending on the variant. Thanks a ton!

A warning sound? Havenít heard it, will keep a ear out, and will keep at the maps, I kind of like the idea of having an in-built map application. Ensures I can function offline.

My VW connect had also not been set up, itís now been done, and gives you some more info on your phone! Pretty good

I donít understand how the automatic wipers work, it rained quite a bit and they didnít go on. I read on a tiguan page that it only varies the speed. Donít care so much, but would be nice to know if they do go on. I have checked the settings, and it is on.

It works for you? My app was setup for me and I have been using it only to find just one trip entry inside it. I've been driving the car everyday since I took delivery on the 9th and the only entry I've found is for the 11th of Jan.

Every screen that is supposed to be holding and displaying some information is empty on my app.

I'm sure I'm missing out something here. Am I supposed to sync the app and the car wirelessly? I use apple carplay all the time, should I open the app while I'm in the car?

Yeah, my dealer also just confirmed this. 17 and half big ones and I have to roll down the windows to close the mirror

Just keep the wiper one level up from off. It will work automatically and vary the speed. It is similar Iike other vw cars.
The sygic map sound can be turned off through notifications.
Even my vw connect is not working and has gone for replacement. Went to the dealer couple of times finally he has written a mail to JIO for replacement. Seems it's a JIO issue.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Hello everyone, i have purchased a highline variant of Taigun in Cherry red colour on 29th Dec. This is the first Volkswagen in my immediate or extended family. I upgraded from Kappa variant of Hyundai I10 magna of 2009 year, overall i am satisfied with this car. What I am facing is a different problem.

I am facing an issue with my Taigun, see what happens in other cars ( honda, hyundai and Maruti) is that if any one of the doors or boot of the cars remains open, the car does not gets locked on pressing the lock button from key (along with blinking confirmation from indicators). The same does not happen with Taigun, no matter if rear doors or boot remain opened, the car gives a blinking confirmation and all the remaining doors gets locked. The same differently happens with front doors, when the lock button is pressed with any of the front door open, the car doesn't gets locked.

Pls share if anyone else finds it weird as this might leave the car unsecured.

I was unable to find a suitable thread for this issue so I am posting it here.

I told him that i'm no longer interested in the car until they add a few more features and improve the quality of the rearview camera.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

Did they reduce pricing because this feature is not available? I like the car but the pricing makes me quite critical.

You would think, nope. In fact, they increased it by about 20-30k in Mumbai. Iím now talking to the dealer to see if I can get a 2021 make with some discounts. Letís see, if not, Iíll just hold the Ecosport for another year.

Re: Volkswagen Taigun Review

They have been carried away by initial success. From standing out for quality products they seem to stand out for pricing. Anyways, don't see this continuing beyond June 22 by when, either discounts or silent updates will start. Again, depends whether they will be content with less than 2000 cars pm. EcoSport will definitely hold for years. Another option would be to go for BH registration due to which you can reduce upfront outgo of around 1.5 - 2 lakhs. Flipside would be paying out registration charges every 2 years.


Mod Note : Please avoid typing with excessive dots.........like................this.

Thanks

Full yellow with the painted side claddings looks ugly.

I am just wondering how will these kind of colors age ?
