Hi Hef!

I couple of questions: how did you wire up the MK7 foglights? And did you have to do any sw work to get it to work?

Did you have to buy any new GPS/phone antennas inside the mirrors? I am installing Caddy life mirrors (small ones), but no antennas inside one of the mirrors.

Love your van by the way!


Best Regards

Jarle

Hi mate, so sorry only noticed your message now, forgive me! I had someone else fit the led fogs mate but without looking I’m almost sure they were plug and play. However, because the power demand for led lights re far less than conventional bulb fogs, I have a warning light on my dash. Doc tells me there is software to overcome this but its something I have bot got round to as yet. They work great though and look the part, especially as I have now fitted bi xenon VAG lights.

As for the mirrors, I fitted the strip inside my door but the signal is not 100% and I need to look into this on my to do list also!

Thanks for your kind comments about the van and so sorry I cant help on this occasion mate.

Looks nice. Any close ups of the side skirts?

What seats are those lurking in the background?
