This is just my mandatory self-introduction, but I'll use it to say how grateful I am to VWWatercooled and its contributors who provide so much useful info.

One slightly unusual thing about me seems to be that clear vision and safety have led me to order a 132TSI Tiguan with the driver assist and luxury packs Tiguan in the next few weeks, once I have ensured that it will be the MY2018 version.

I will be deserting my current Toyota Prius V in favour of the Tiguan's much better vision, starting with higher driver seat/viewpoint and safety technologies.
