So after my Blazer died, I took advantage of some of the great sale deals going on and managed to get a good deal on a new 2009 Volkswagon Tiguan SE with 4Motion.  It’s a pretty nice ride, not as big as the Blazer, but excellent road handling and a surprising powerful 4 cylinder turbo-charged engine.  Some basic specs:

  • 2009 VW Tiguan SE
  • 4Motion AWD System with 6 Speed Tiptronic Transmission (Manual and Sport modes)
  • 2 Liter Turbo Charged Direct Injected Engine
  • Rated 200 HP / 207 Torque

Modifications so far:

  • Flashed Revo Technik Stage 1 w/Select Plus
  • RossTech VAG-COM w/Micro-CAN
  • Added VW OEM Savannaha Two-Tone 19×9 ET33 Wheels and 255/40-19 Continental ContiPro Tires
  • Added VW OEM RNS-510 Touchscreen DVD/Satelite/HDRadio/Harddrive Navigation system
  • Added VW Volk-L Bluetooth handsfree kit
  • Added HiddenHitch 2″ Trailer Hitch and VW OEM Trailer Module
  • Added VW OEM Rear Window Shades
  • Added sliders to the cup holder tensioners to stop the squeaking

Modifications Purchased, But need to be installed

  • VW OEM Rear Parking Assist Sensors and Module
  • VW OEM Rear Camera
  • Rewire and activate RNS-510 for Voice Activated Control

Modifications I would still like to do:

  • Rear Seat Video Entertainment Screens
  • Retrofit VW Auto-Dim rearview mirrors and auto headlights into the vehicle (SEL Features)
