    2018 Tiguan remove Top speed limit

    All,

    my 2018 US Tiguan SE is now road legal in Germany. The Autobahn is a bit frustrating though as there is a speed limiter of 180 km/h --> ENG01775,Top_speed_limitation,180.000, km/h

    I believe there is no way to remove this with VCDS, is there any other tool or does someone knows a tuner who can do this? I already contacted a couple but a) the ECU seems to be quit tricky and b) its a US model so some companies here say while they can get into the ECU, they no touching US cars....

    I had a dutch company remove the one on my 2013 Tiguan after tuning. Only it was limited to 210km/h and not 180km/h. It took them a couple of tries and it was definitely in the ECU software itself and not in coding or adaptations.
    My current one wasnt limited as far as i know (or at least, it steams on to stop at around 250 without issues).
    Current:
    2018 Tiguan AD Highline 2.0 BiTDI 240hp > Stage 1+ 328hp
    2016 Polo 6C Highline 1.0 TSI 105hp

    I do not think it's possible to do that with VCDS.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Thanks guys,

    I got a response from a German tuner who claims he is able to read/write the nasty Bosch MG1 in the Tiguan since 1 week (took 2 years for him).
    He has a tune for the German version of this engine and would be more than happy to get a visit from me and see what he can do.

    I will drive to his company in a couple weeks and will let you know what he was able to do, maybe even a nice tune to get this thing moving

    It is now possible, 3 or 4 tools in the market that are able to read/write MG1
