Picked up my caddy today

Post by Blown u » Wed Mar 06, 2019 11:39 pm

So today I picked up my caddy from the dealer. It’s a 2011 61 plate maxi kombi.
I drove it straight down to my mates alloy wheel company and had a set of 19s fitted.
Side bars, splitter and spoiler in the garage waiting to be fitted.
I can see this forum costing me a lot of money.

Thanks guys,
Black wasn’t my first choice as I said never would I own a black car/van again. But I’ll just have to wash it weekly

I'm with you on not wanting black again as I've also got a black Passat, just a pain to keep looking good. YourCaddy looks like it has a 45mm drop on it already, was it like that from the dealer?

That’s a nice van and a good choice on the wheels.

I’ve always vowed never to have another black vehicle myself, but I don’t think you can beat a black vehicle when it’s nice and clean with a good coating of polish. The reflections are unreal

Yeah the dealer said it was lowered so that saved me a small wedge.

Not sure how low it is but I found a receipt in the history for eibach?

Yes I can’t wait to polish it properly and get a decent wax on.
Should be lovely when done

So spent today fitting the front splitter and side bars.

Side bars took abit longer than expected as I didn’t have the bolt in the right hole, so the bracket didn’t line up ImageImageImage but after head some scratching, I figured it out.

Excuse the dirt Image

Looking good mate. Is the splitter gloss black? It’s hard to see from the pic

Looks like it might be the Eibach Pro-Kit then which gives the 45mm drop. Small wedge saved to spend on other changes to the Caddy :lol:
