    But given the Tiguan already runs 340mm front rotors there's no major benefit other than a little weight saving on the caliper (and a better finish on the caliper).

    Agree that anything else is big...

    It depends on how much you drive your car but most tyre manufacturers recommend replacing tyres at 10 years regardless of the amount of tread left. So it would generally only be an issue buying older...

    You should be OK just putting 2 new tyres on. But recommend rotating them regularly so that they wear evenly front/back.

    The reason why 2-1 gear change in the DQ500 is clunky is that there's a synchro on 1st gear. You'll hear the gearbox clunk back into first at low speed just before you stop. This is completely...

    That’s good info… but a little disturbing at the same time.

    Fortunately I’ve had mine serviced and oil changed at 45k so should be all good.

    7 speed in Tiguan is DQ500.

    These have been pretty bulletproof all through Gen1/1.5 Tiguan almost zero reported issues.

    There was a “bad batch” of these in ~2017 and Cameleon appears to have...

    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...
