    6 speed is the DQ250 wet clutch which was also in the Mk6&7 GTI/R. It's not a bad gearbox - certainly a lot more reliable than the DQ200 7 speed dry box.

    sorry, I didn’t mention this caveat. I’m not necessarily looking to “upgrade” the braking performance but more the look. That’s why I asked about the GTI, to see if you know if they’re direct bolt...

    I don’t think GTI calipers will be an upgrade for the Tiguan.

    Porsche Macan is a good front brake upgrade if you can find a set at a reasonable price.

    I 100% agree. I think the best interior is the basic cloth in the 140TSI. The red highlights in the X is a bit much but I think would be fixable without major cost. I don't mind the highlights on the...
