Modifications to Volkswagen Tiguan

Post by avstuning » Fri Feb 21, 2020 8:29 am

Hello,
I have a Volkswagen Tiguan
I have decided to upgrade it with the following.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Night Vision
Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC)
360 View Camera
Park Lane Assist (PLA)
Virtual Cockpit
Matrix Headlights
High Beam Assist (HBA)
Ambient Lighting 30 Colour
Heads Up Display (HUD)

I need help from the fellow members and the experts @Ciclo @iichel
I need help from start to end. Like where to source the parts, how to fit them, what other chnges required to the car, what coding is required.
I have Original VCDS, Vag Can Pro and a VAS Dongle without ODIS.

Code: Select all

There are many of those modifications that are possible. Some of them need to be activated and registered on VW servers through activation codes that you will have to pay.

These activation codes are not available for all countries, e.g, in my VW dealer they don't know what the hell is that about SWaP, FeC, etc ... omfg! :lol:
Even on the VW website for Spain regarding after-sales service and accessories there is no catalog for these activations. Here in stone age, as always. :mrgreen:

I think your best option is to inquire into many threads of the www.drive2.ru forum.
There are stores in Drive2 that can activate some functions (legally) through a remote connection.

This is all the help I can give you. Good luck!

A lot of retrofits will come to three elements:
Hardware
Wiring
Coding

Sourcing parts will require a thorough study of the parts catalogue (i.e. ifinterface). Keep in mind that retrofits can require existing parts to be replaced as well. You can buy new parts from the dealer or used parts from ebay, allegro, etc.

Wiring can be found in Erwin from VW (buy one hour, save to pdf). Study your current and future configurations.

With the arrival of the mqb chassis, a lot of the coding has received another dimension: SWaP (software as a product). This means you can buy the feature from VW and they code it via a FeC (feature enabling code). This often needs to be done next to the normal vcds coding (bits, bytes and adaptation channels).

Another complication of the new software concept is the so called component protection. This is another safety process to limit the use of used (stolen) parts. Parts like radio or acc radar need to be activated by the dealer to work.

I don't know any of the specifics of your retrofits. Like ciclo, I know some of them have been done before. It will likely not be easy, it still require long study of the Tiguan, it's electrics and it's codings.

VW's argument is to prevent theft of parts, but that's not the real reason ...

Unfortunately all humanity is living the worst of the tyrannies ever exercised (the third stupid world war, at the moment hidden). It seems that nobody is interested in these matters related to the personal data proteccion, or who speaks about it has an aluminum foil on the head ...🤪

Fortunately this tyranny can be permanently deceived. The tyrant always thinks that slaves are trained and complacent, ...wrong thoughts... 😁

I agree about the reason, its' more likely VW wants to limit retrofitting and keep control of the products in their cars.
I heard the Golf 8 even has access limited to certain modules, you cannot access them without Gecko authorization code (i.e. 15 Airbags, 5F radio). A real shame and perhaps the end of 'easy' retrofitting. A big shame, it was a major reason for me to love VW the way I love them.

Whatever the reason, it is a clear invitation to hack all 'their' cars.
As it is currently done ... :mrgreen:

I don't see any crime in hacking all the modules of a car that is 'my' property.
