Very nice buddy.
The A3 vents look really nice on a caddy

Just needs some thicker foam between the vent and ducting to make a snug fit

What else have you done to get them to fit properly? I’ve seen a couple of pics where other people have fitted them but they don’t always look quite right.

The bottom of the dash needed small bit of plastic cut out that was it they are easy to get back out again

This is how much I cut out to give a snug fit the first one I cut a little to much but it still stays in the hole ok ImageImage

Well after a lot of headaches I have finally got my spacewalker module all wired up. Fitted in my caddy and got my Mk7 golf MFSW fitted and working.Image

That steering wheel looks amazing! I would like cruise control too. Is it possible to change the steering wheel like you did and code in the cruise control to work? So instead of a cruise control stalk I mean. I would then choose a MFSW over a stalk kind for convenience and the fact that you can also control the radio, etc.

@timson
You will have to get a spacewalker module to do that.
Then you will have to do some soldering like I did

Are there no MFSW's that do not require soldering in order for the cruise control to work? Like MFSW's from other caddy's?
