Hi Doc,
What Discover head unit have you put in? And do later 2018 Discover head units have any problems with the cp disabling or coding in of the unit? as I am interested in buying a 2018 Discover head unit to put in my 2011 Caddy. Part number 5C0035680G.

I had it sent off for a memory patch and activation of all functions making fitting very simple. Needed a adaptor harness and CAN blocker as my instrument cluster supports CP.
Two and a half years ago it cost a pretty penny to have all done but now there are quite a few people offering the service. It's been discussed a few times on the forum.
As said, it's the Discover Media unit.
Can be fitted to pretty much all VWs with double din aperture.

Spacewalker off the forum sorted it out for me, there were guys in Poland who were some of the few who could do it back then.

Nice instrument cluster Doc, is it one that has been modified to have the blue needles or is it original?

It's a 2015 Tiguan instrument cluster, I added the genuine mk6 Golf R20 needles and blue LEDs.

This brings us to July 2017
I fitted some Relentless Tuning (BC racing under a different name) coilovers on the front of my Caddy.

These were and have since been flawless, 28 point damping adjustment along with spring seat and mounting position adjustment allows the retention of optimum damper travel which is evident when driving. This does come at a premium but even the KW setup at twice the price loses out to these when dropped really low(which I'm not by any means).

Cheers @BradleyB
I've not done a build thread for this van until this one, most of the images were scattered across various topics on the forum.

Lovely!
It's this sort of stance that made me so desperate for a Caddy when my other van died.....I've already washed it twice, which is the same amount thT I washed my Kangoo in 13 years! :lol:
