Hi Stan, desperately need your help wiring a set of 2017 Mk7 Golf R seats into our 2018 Mk4 caddy. Caddy is a 1.4 Tsi Highline model factory supplied with heated seats. The plugs on the Golf Seats are different to those on the Caddy. Caddy has 4 plugs ( Heating loom / Airbag / Seat Belt / Occupany Sensor )where as the Golf seats have ( Loom / Airbag ). The plugs are different on the heating loom and airbag loom. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone.

My apologies for radio silence for ages...

Been busy being self employed for last few months and just had no time to come on and enjoy Caddy life too much.
For anyone looking for me in future I’ll post my contact details in my heated seats thread. I’m alive and still willing to help anyone in trouble .

Stan

I also like the bags you have on the back doors can they be sourced separately.
The one I used came from Japan would you believe. They can be got from VW maniacs site. Lots of nice stuff but expensive. They come with three colour options red/blue/white. You just hook up appropriate wire. Next time I’ll be stripping bits down I’ll make mine same as my footwell lights changing colour from red to white etc.

I’m afraid bags are factory order only as few lads asked me already and can’t see anything in etka about them Image

Google translate is your friend
Basically you need a ZenMarket account with enough money in it to complete the sale
You’ll figure it out

Hi Stan, just read this thread amazing work, just bought myself a fairly well speced trend line from donnellys hoping to start with xenons and heated seats your thread has definatly opened my eyes to what's possible.
Keep up the good work
