Hi all! I recently bought a Sharan 2012 and am very happy with the car!
I'm new to the forum, I would like to know how to improve the car, improve the interior, or maybe there is a list of what needs to be done immediately after purchase?

Good morning and congratulations on the purchase of your new motor car!

Here are some ideas:
Check the tyre pressure and adjust
Do an oil change
Change the air filter
Change the brake fluid
Change the coolant
Check the spare tyre is pumped up
Put nice car mats in it
Upgrade to a DAB radio
Give it a good polish
Oil the door hinges
Make a little first aid kit to keep in the rear storage area
Add a nice air freshener
Maybe consider keeping a blanket in the car
Get a nice phone charger and cable

These are very good vehicles and so comfy and practical too!
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all. Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

to be honest, I bought a new infotainment this onel, put new wheels and that was enough for me, the rest should be factory, because nothing compares to the quality of original spare parts

I think a similar brand monitor would also look good in the rear seats
