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?
Welcome! I got the Escapegear seat covers and can definitely recommend them. If you do go for them, get the canvas and not the waterproof covers. I don't think there are any official side skirts for a Maxi, you would have to adapt something from another car (many people on this site use Audi ones).

Thanks @anoneamus, will do some checking on the Forum once I get my count up to request unlocking to the other sections.
Also thought the canvas will be better and more comfortable (softer) than the waterproof ones.

@Russ74
Nice! I was looking at brand new TT vents, but the price is ridiculous. Kinda gave up on getting anything useful from Cape Town scrapyards. Not sure I care enough to put major effort into a vent change, but may give it a go. Haven't ventured much off the range, in terms of parts. Have some Golf and Touran parts, but mostly Caddy. Going for OEM+ (ie. could be OEM) look.

Hey, @Russ74 , did you manage to sort out the inner rear door handle?
I'm trying to find one myself, but I'm a bit new to this and haven't even managed to find the part number. Any tips would be appreciated, thanks

Hi no I haven’t as yet
I see eBay has a few here’s a link

https://www.ebay.co.uk/c/25028602030
Also there is a part number. You can go to your dealer give them the part number and they will order it for you. Image

There’s a really good how too in the tech section that details how to do it and the part numbers for all the parts!

And you’ll find the main dealer a lot cheaper than the price on the snip from eBay, I was £50 from the main dealer for all the bits!
