I just bought a used 2013 Tiguan and was looking for some accessories and have a couple of questions. I've been looking for a remote starter and haven't had any luck with finding somewhere that can install one. Is it because of the immobilizer ? Does VW sell one and if so is it priced too high to be worth it? Also haven't found much for the 2013 but quite a few things for the 2012 are they basically the same body? I was looking for a bug deflector but haven't found one. I did find a hood protector but it was for a 2012. Would that fit my 13? Anybody have a guess on the price of having VW install the rear view camera? I have the RNS315 radio and was told that it can be set up with a camera. Thanks in advance for any help!
Hi, I just bought a used 2013 SEL and was looking for a remote start. Since I have the push button start the tech would have to disassemble one of the two electronic keys and convert it to the remote starter otherwise I could buy a third key ($250.00) as a donor for the project. The Remote itself was $199.00.
When buying a new key they all have to be reprogrammed together.
The problem of finding remote starters has something to do with the encryption processes used by Volkswagon being more involved than that used by other manufacturers.
Just found your post and saw no replies, hopefully you found something by now, and if not hopes this helps.
Thanks for the reply. I didn't find a remote starter and from the prices you had with keys and all I'll probably skip the idea.
