    Yeah, stage 2 really dumps fuel into the cylinders at high revs. That's a common experience with stage 2 maps across VAG cars too.

    - Longer trips with good traffic flow (also giving it some curry between 3-5,000RPM) I...

    If you like keeping your money you'd be better off finding a good independent mechanic. Dealership service is always more expensive.

    The steering wheel is different in your car to the Mk 6 Golf style most people seem to have dealt with. I'm not 100% sure but if RNS 510 works then the RCD 330 should give you:

    Does your Tiguan have the 8 button (MkV golf style) or 10 button (Mk6 style) steering wheel? The 10 button wheels should give you functioning volume and track skip buttons without any extra changes.
