Tiguan DCC Upgrade

Dynamic Chassis Control Retrofitting on Tiguan 5N : 14 January 2017

Bern wanted to improve his original Tiguan suspension system which seem to have worn and feel relatively soft and uncomfortable. He got the B6 Bilstein installed. As the B6 is a sport tune suspension, the ride naturally became harsher and firmer. Much to his  disappointment till he tested my Passat with the DCC installed. It was love at first ride. 

Retrofitting was done over two days as usual. Visit Bern at his condominium and spent a day installing the harness.  Hardware were installed the next day at MTR Motoren with Julian's kind assistance and his splendid team of technicians. 

Installed the critical DCC controller at the rear

In 2017, we have adopted a new approach in the electric system. Now we use the original harness in the wheel arches to connect to the custom harness of the retrofitted DCC system. The original harness is removed and the new DCC type harness fitted in place.

Fit and joints are superb ! 

Original harness is neat and tidy

Wiring fit is 100%

After all is done, a visit to Stamford Tires to get the wheels aligned

    Had procrastinated for a year before I finally decided to install DCC on my Tiguan through Jimmy. I was extremely impressed with his professionalism and passion for VW cars and mods. He took me through explanation and installation process explanation and made it convenient for me by coming to my home carpark and wiring installation. Seeing the complexity of the wiring further cemented my faith in his ability to complete the project without issues. The whole process took 1.5days. I came off with deep conviction of his ability and am definitely exploring more with him! To all VW car lovers in SG, he's the man to go to for expert advice and installation on all things VW.

    2 days having DCC on Tiguan. I am enjoying the ability to ride on comfort with family. DCC helps smoothes out bumps and makes Singapore roads less harsh. Sports mode when I am driving out alone. Time to think about next project with Jimmy!
