well, i finally did it. after waiting and reading everything there is about the MK2 MQB Tiguan, one finally showed up at my local VW dealer.

went from my 2016 GTI SE APR stage 1+ to the 2018 Tiguan SE. got the optional panoramic sunroof and NO third row seating. picked up the dark moss green metallic, in all honesty this color kept me from picking up an SEL, itching to find some suspension as i am not a fan of the 4x4 status i am in right now. but the car is great. rides well and looks amazing!

what i traded in: kinda sucks, just put a stage 1 tune from APR on it about 2 months ago, that was fun. but the car just didnt do it for me.

what i got in return: i always wanted 4motion, but never wanted an .:R or the alltrack. love my wifes R-Line Tiguan (2016) and decided to pic this dark moss green metallic Tiguan up! im not kidding, the panoramic sunroof goes on for DAYS!

sorry for the ****ty phone picture, literally picked this car up last night and havent gotten proper pics yet.

and to update the original post, here is where the car is at now.

installed H&R sport springs that were on my 2016 GTI SE. the ride quality is still amazing even with the significant drop i achieved!

still in love with this moss green color!

next steps are to color match the front reflectors, de badge the entire car, matte or gloss black and upgrade to folding mirrors and finally wheels.

here is a little update to my Tig.

today i installed a custom, toasted chestnut wood floor in the trunk. lined with a 48 LED strip for lighting. went with this color to complement the dark moss green metallic paint and think it matches well in person.
also installed the DEautokey H7RC HID kit...but we all know what that looks like haha.

here is the flooring...

and here is a picture in the garage with the light off, to show the brightness of the LED strip and floor.

here are some other pictures.
another one of my hobbies is photography and videography. so carrying a camera is always nice when you run into a cool spot for pictures.

its a good vehicle, no doubt about that.
my only wish/want is more horsepower for it. you feel the lack that 184hp is only able to bring.

but if you can get over that, then this is a great CUV.

It's funny that is the main complaint I read in several reviews of the new Tiguan...way under-powered for the new size.

haha yea, most people were expecting the GTI motor. but we got the shitty B-cycle motor.
BUT JB4 and a power module are in the works and they are saying about another month and it will be open for public purchase.

projected numbers are as follows
231hp @ 4600rpm
372tq @ 3000rpm

either way, i like those numbers and would be happy with just that.
