Hi Andrew, thanks for your kind comments mate! I know the feeling, the endless list of mods keeps us on our toes, and under the the Mrs's microscope haha! Yes the same guy who fitted my gti bumper made my mirrors. They are genuine VAG parts too. I saw some mirrors initially on ebay for £500 and contacted the guy. He was a nice fella to be fair but I was put off by the need to drill a hole in the door and also required a sparky to wire them. So not really a diy job. In the end I went to a guy I've known before who has set up on his own specialising in Caddy's and Transporters. His paintwork is ace and has done work for me over the years whilst he worked for a very reputable bodyshop locally for 25 odd years! He made the mirrors, that are a direct fit and did not need wiring as the other guy said. He coded them in with his laptop and its a spot on job and would defo recommend him! His place is called Procad and called Simon. He's a great guy and very reasonable as he made and fitted my mirrors cheaper than what I could have bought the ones on ebay that required drilling/wiring! He's on 07717400027 hope this helps matey and let me know how you get on

Hi mate depends if you want it primed or painted, grills gloss black or standard black plastic and with or without splitter anf fitted. Procad did mine mate and a great job fair play! Primed and properly ready to paint to a quality finish from about £500 then whatever you want painted etc on top! Show standard and well recommended! He's on here as barty71

Nice, to wrap the roof of a caddy in summertime takes just about 20 minutes lol

ps. the doors still have matt black caps... they need to become gloss black as well mate!
