Default 2016 TDI SEL GSW 6mt

Finally got around to taking some photos, hopefully I learned how to post them correctly.

This is my 2016 TDI SEL GSW 6mt which I purchased recently here in Mexico.
As you can see, it is a US spec car which was never delivered to the USA.

Many upgrades planned, starting tomorrow with the installation of a Curt hitch. Should be interesting with the DAP sensors.

I've already learned a lot from this forum, thanks !





Swapped 18" rims for 16's


Rear SEL emblems


DAP & Bi Xenons


Dash in MPH


Apple car play with USB input


Heated sport seats

Nice! Any pictures of the blocking plug VW put over the AdBlue filler?

Installed Curt hitch this morning...my back is sore !

Overall installation went smooth except instruction say only 4motions need valence cutout...wrong

The dap sensors were all connected with one plug, easy

Thankfully the trailer wiring harness is much simpler for 2016's, but I haven't run the power wire to the front yet ( enough bending over for today )

..seems a shame to have that ~4 us gal. " reserve" tank just sitting there empty - run a balance hose to your main tank and bump your range another 200 miles

Yes, I started a "alternate use for Adblue tank" thread a while back, but it's pretty far down the list of things to do.

The cap is "tamper proof", will need to be cut off when I get around to it.

I guess that explains what happen to the 16's that were supposedly at the port when dieselgate hit. I passed on a 2015 and was waiting for a 16 to get the carplay.

Gee. Nothing but a few dumb regulations and laws between us and those AWESOME TDIs.

AND.. Amarok 4Motion TDI with three pedals is for sale on this North American continent! And vans too. Aahhh... Mexico!

Stupid. Makes me feel dumb.

I've been drooling over the manual tranny TDI 4x4 Amarok with the low gear transfer case..if only they offered they that drive line in the Tiguan or Atlas..A pickup just doesn't work for me.

I don't know if they currently build the Amarok with the EA288 engine...it is one sweet motor !

Just returned from a 700km trip. I was planning on cruising at 80, but then a 1.6 TDI "Vento" ( built in India ) decided to run, and before I knew it I was cruising at 100 mph then for a while at 140 with a Mercedes. Still did it in one tank !

Damn, you must have a tune. I'm pretty sure that in stock tune, vw's are speed limited to ~124 mph. Fast enough for my needs.
