Installing windows and rear seats

Post by Dazg » Thu Aug 31, 2017 4:47 pm

Hi all, I'm looking to buy a caddy 2011 model and was wondering what it would cost to have windows put on both sides (just one either side) and to have two seats put in the back please? Ideally I need it so I can easily remove the seat so I can transport a motorcycle in the back. I will also be looking to change the front seats for something a bit more comfortable but not bucket seats.The caddy will be used a family car and not for work for your information if that helps.

Thanks for any help in advance

Darren

You might find a Maxi Kombi van a better buy. Otherwise factor in an additional 2 grand to get a finish worth paying for.

I paid a couple of hundred quid for the windows to be fitted into my maxi when I bought it.
Cant comment on seats but I know that they're expensive with the safety certification and stuff

Hi can anyone tell me what you get? Is it just the seats fitting? Do they fit any rear carpet for the maxis? Cheers

Is the certificate needed for the V5 or insurance purposes? I was planning on fitting some Maxi Kombi rear seats myself...
