On the contrary, they certainly are. However, blandly restating the obvious in random threads does tend to look more like bot behaviour than normal human interaction, so naturally you can expect some suspicion from us.
If indeed you are human, then by all means contribute if you have something to add, but posting merely for the sake of upping your post count isn't really cool.
Yeah, maybe for you, it might look suspicious. You see a newcomer posting some stuff, trying to chime in.
But you have no idea how challenging it is to join an already-formed gang (even online) and make some new friends there.

The gang like mentality here is not existant at all. Made lots of new friends here and had no trouble doing it. Again you are welcome to post up about your tdi and goals for it. That is the common factor here. Still have your tdi listed as NA which is kinda weird.

Hey, buddy, it's okay, it's just that a couple of your first posts sounded a bit like something AI generated rather than real human interaction, and there has been a LOT of that sort of activity here lately so it was a natural assumption.
As for the second part, I know what that's like, I've joined quite a few forums and none of them were as accepting as this one.
Anyway, welcome here. Hang around, do some reading, we're all here to learn. It's a great place really.

Let's give him the benefit of the doubt for now. If he is AI, it's not going to hurt to play along for a bit. If he's not, then we're making him feel bad.

If you are interested in my car, I drive a 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan 2.0 TDI. I love sporty SUVs, and I love my car.
I'll update it in my BIO, too, if you want it.
Regarding making friends here, I see that it's a bit challenging, considering the fact that you check every single detail about me and accuse me of being a spammer or AI. What else did you call me? Not so many people are ready to jump into a conversation and instantly make new friends. For me, it takes time and a lot of effort. I feel awkward saying something in real life with a group of strangers. I'm not a very sociable person in real life, and it's really challenging for me to make some friends. Turns out it's not that easy on digital ground too. TBH, I feel like it's my first day at school or even at a new job. Where there's an established gang, and you just want to say something to join the conversation, and you just awkward and that you can't fit into the group of people that share some interests with you.

I dont sense any gang mentality here. Heck I even found alot of locals and hopefully there is some GTGs over the summer and meet them.

I'm pretty sure VW never sold a 2012 Tiguan TDI in the US. Still feels a bit fishy. Also seems odd to use your name as your sig, but not include any details in said sig. Still trying to give the benefit of the doubt, but you're not making it easy.

I'm out, good luck all. If any items come up for sale, I'd recommend steering clear.

You guys were so focused on me that I even forgot what this thread was about. Maybe you should create a separate thread about me where you can discuss whether I'm a real person or not? You wanted me to share the info about my car, and I did it. Now, you doubt every single part of what I say? Now, I'm curious how the OP's doing with that car? Any updates on this?

I am genuinely interested in the Tiguan it is an awesome little vehicle and in diesel it meets so many needs. I just was having trouble finding one here.

They never made them there thats why. Although people have swapped diesel engines into them. I think I know of one with a CJAA in it.

Its honestly a good little platform for a TDI engine. I wouldnt mind driving one. Beef up the CJAA a little bit with more power and you're good to go.

I actually bought one from my neighbor. He was a foreigner, and he wanted to move to another state or even country. I don't really know where did he go. The thing is that he was selling literally everything he had, his house, all his furniture, clothes, everything. On his so-called 'yard sale,' I stared at his car, and he asked me if I was interested in buying it. I took time to think, but what motivated me was that it's comfy and it's diesel. So, he offered me a good price, and we made a deal.

Dude no way! That is my old one! I remember you now! I had it and you came over and bought it from me! Yes I was a foreigner I ended up moving to Cuba. Thank you for taking it off my hands. How could I be so rude before. How are things?
