There's no back up camera because Japan was hit with that major Earthquake which knocked out VW's parts supplier. Otherwise it's loaded (for a VW). Real Leather, 3 foot Sun Roof, Peppy. Gas mileage doesn't seem to be as good as we expected, afraid of what the 19" Pirelli Scorpion Tires are going to cost to replace especially since my GF loves to mash the gas. But otherwise we really like the car. Have a feeling we'll trade up for another BMW at the end of the lease but till then the Tiguan is treating us well =)
$600 will get you 50 more hp if you get it re-tuned from APR, that's what we did and it was a big difference. Might be a bit more power if you have 93 octane where you live. Try and see if there is a dealer near you.
