WTF @ rake.... Mine is level AF.
Have you swapped in a V8 or something?
You measured from center of wheel liner to center of wheel???
You got me thinking. Had a spring blowout over the summer. Dealership said the car has hybrid springs installed per the color coding. I had them install OEM. The rear has OEM and the fronts still have Hybrid, but I'd think the hybrid runs higher due to weighing more.

My car has a real tiny rake to it but not significant

Strange. Looking at mine you can def. tell the rear-end is higher but not significantly so.. to the normal eye it probably looks pretty level. I imagine the rear end is higher like it is in trucks, where they expect it to drop to level once you get a load on the hitch

My bad then I misunderstood your question. But there are B12 kits for both generations you were inquiring about

Please do get back to us with spring rates! I know you have an r so it's probably going to be different than most others but at least we have a starting point

Ah gotcha. Some of us take our Volkswagens very seriously!

They're good cars. Owning any German car you should be well to do so you can afford high quality care from dealers or Euro shops or be mechanically inclined AND well to do so you can do your own work

What is that vag com timing in terms of mods, just the tune?

Zambony have you made any additional vagcom track time runs?

Were the roads snowy?

Also, the 2016 times listed are definitely before the diesel mod. 2014 looks like post diesel mod. The fix really killed performance in a big way.

Your slow 1/8 mile time but really high mph indicates to me you're being held back by traction and maybe 60' time significantly.

That's all fair I'm just curious. I'm just telling you with the speed you racked up in your 1/8 mile that you are definitely having some traction issues or launching issues because at that speed your time should be significantly faster. Keep us posted if you find anything else out!

It's looking good. You should get matching Llumar tint on the front windows to match the rest of the car

The Touareg has very strange catalog entries with Bilstein. Typically Bilstein makes the same line across every automotive manufacturer but the Touareg is very unique. The B12 setup should have custom valving and spring work

I don't know my man, they are very wishy-washy in their catalog description unfortunately.

That makes sense. Don't be so glum about it, you were going to love it and I want to hear all about it LOL

The only real difference between the Cayenne Springs and the Touareg Springs are the Cayenne are a higher spring rate and about three quarters of an inch shorter. It is my completely unprofessional opinion that you will have zero issues installing this. @jeffnhiscars actually recently proved my theory correct and can maybe weigh in on that

The Tiguan actually moves pretty well with the 2.0 TSI, especially when you start throwing mods at it. They are definitely faster than a fixed Touareg. Unless you get the newer Tiguan, they were always significantly smaller. The newer ones are pretty large
