Just do a search for RBP-005 on Amazon.
Also a Google search for it may turn up a distributor. I ordered from a distributor of it in USA that shipped it to me in Canada, I think they are called CarID or something like that. I thought it would be cheaper since it was much lower cost on their website but after taxes and import duties and international shipping, it ended up being within $5 of the Amazon price.

Here’s a couple better pictures after I ran through a car wash…

The trim was a dealer installed item rather than factory as part of a package. I suppose the factory has a template? Found it was really cockeyed when I went to wax it after getting it home. Wasn't even close, huge overhang! Drove 200 miles one way to buy the car. Newer dealership so excellent customer service besides a great deal. Local dealership installed a new one and it's much nicer.

Just put in an order for one of these. I like that it is rubber and that it fully covers the edge. I never lean skis on cars, but at least here I would feel safe if someone else were to do so. Also gives good cover if someone were to lean/sit on the bumper to change shoes or something.

I've seen bumperdillos that look chewed up over time (more of an issue with silver than black probably)--rubber should avoid/hide any scrapes...

I put one on, but not the bumperdillo branded one from VW. Here in Canada the dealer only has access to the silver color one which I did not want.

I got one from Amazon, Dawn Enterprises (RBP-005) since it’s black in color and is the only one I could find that comes over the edge unlike the dealer one does.

If you use the hatch frequently I definitely recommend it or something similar. Despite being very careful, I scratched the bumper paint a few times in the first 8 months before I put the protector on. It’s a little pricey but definitely worth the added protection!"
After seeing this, I added the Dawn bumper cover last week and overall I like it since it extends slightly over the edge of the bumper for greater protection. I already had some nicks and scratches after owning the car just 3 months so I needed this extra protection.

Just installed mine last week. My Tig didn't come with one, but, the dealer threw one in along with the Dynamic Center Caps for the wheels. I'll post a pic once I get a chance to actually clean the car when it's not fridgid here.

Now that the top of the bumper is protected... I installed one of these Super Bumpers on my (brother's now) 19 Atlas SE V6 Tech Packaged 4Motion. This could work for the Tiguan if the trailer hitch is the one that goes through the bumper rather than below it. I never had a tailgater. Was in a hurry during installation so cut the Costco salad lid :unsure: to eliminated small movement and potential rust from chaffing.
