So what you saying dan. You don’t believe there is a RHD one?

No mate.

Also on ETKA.

2K5 is LHD caddy
2K6 is RHD caddy.

The compartment is only listed as 2K5. And I've tried 2K6 on ordering at TPS and part number doesn't work

Looks like the B is just an updated version. As above looks like 2k6 would be RHD. So we are still finding out. But looks like we still need to adapt them.

Oh well, sorry for building any hopes... it's a b****r though as the standard tray is useless.

My solution was to make this with scirocco aux gauges. Done a few of these now for fellow caddy owners.Image

I haven’t had a chance to finish mine off fully when I do I will post some pics, it’s not amazing but I have the scirocco boost gauges going on top anyway

How would you connect these gauges to work properly? Is there an option in vcds to code them in?
I’d be interested in doing something similar.

Many different gauge options are available depending on the country they are made for. I buy from UK scrap yards as I want oil in degrees Celsius.
