  1. Does sunroof block UV A and UV B more than 90% in Tiguan?

    Hi, everybody. I just bought a Tiguan SE 2019 AWD with panoramic sunroof. The darkness of sunroof is good enough to me. But I know that the darkness has nothing to do with UV protection. I googled the UV protection by windows, and found mixed results. And I couldn't find any specific results for...

  18. Gravel guard broken

    CC Owners Club
    Drove over a curb in the dark in my 2014 Turbocharged CC. Cracked what VW described as the "gravel guard". They want 155.00 plus bolts. Is this the correct name for the part and who is the most reasonable place for VW parts? Thank you.
