In The Shop
1 Day Technik Tiguan Overland Build
As some of you may remember, last March we had an event here at the shop to celebrate one year under our new banner. During the event we wanted to give people something to spectate, so we decided to take a completely stock 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan and modify it into an adventure / overland vehicle in just one day.
We added LP Adventure wheels wrapped in Falken Wildpeak AT3 tires, as well as a lift and camber correction kit from B2BFAB. In addition to that we added roof bars and a roof basket, with functional Hella auxiliary lighting all wired to a controller that is neatly tucked away in the cubby near the driver’s knee. We deleted the chrome above the rockers, as well as around the windows and along the rear bumper. We also deleted the chrome on the slats of the front grille, and then gave the fog lights a “french” treatment courtesy of Lamim-X. Inside we upgraded our shifter with a brand new custom green Black Forest Industries DSG/auto knob and alcantara shift boot. To give this Tiguan a bit more oompf to turn those larger tires, we added Stage 1 software from APR.
For one day’s worth of work we think this transformation was very successful! This Tiguan gets thumbs up and comments from everyone when it’s out and about, and now we find every excuse to get out and about often
