Hi @Russ74,

Where did you source your brakes and rear spoiler from?

So I done a dyno run to see what power I was putting out after the stage 1 flash.
No hardware mods just the flash.

Is your Caddy 5spd manual box ?
I had endless clutch slip after software upgrade, now have VR6 flywheel and clutch

How did you end up fitting the rear spoiler, mine arrived off ebay last year and havent gotten around to painting and fitting it yet.

Yes 5 Speed also a judder under load since the clutch was fitted. The spoiler I bonded on with Sika Flex put a few blobs on let it set then finished the edges off with some silicone sealer

Lucky, this channel is unsupported on my ABS module (even after security unlock). :(

Did you change anything else before changing this?

Ah well, seems I don't have the channel for some reason - it's displayed in VCDS, but it's not possible to read or change it (gives error).

Hi Guys,

I'm new here, from the East Rand South Africa.
Nice to see a thread for SA guys.

Couple of questions, if anybody knows/can help.
Anybody here know where i can source seat covers for a Caddy Maxi 2.0 DSG 7 seater (2018)?
Only spot I found so far in country is https://escapegear.com/

Also any idea where I can source side skirts from?
