They're great, but I've worn a hole in the driver's one near the pedals after about 4 years. Will need to replace. :|
snap :lol:

Exploring the limits of what a 2WD Caddy can do. Got stuck on a pebble beach, and almost stuck on another road through the dunes. Need to start looking at 4Motion retrofit (although standard height clearance is also an issue).
That looks like a great day out

Finally bedded in yellowstuff pads with some hard stops from 60+ bloddy ell they are good, loads of feel and power without being grabby. No pics though

A great week out! Got bored of quarantining in a flat, so picked up a cheap out of season holiday rental house. Yesterday was mud surfing in the rain on dirt roads. Found the true value of the engine undertray: keeping mud out of the engine bay. Engine was still spotless after intense mud session. :D

@anoneamus sounds terrific, isn’t it amazing what a difference decent tyres make. I used to run P100 pickup with M&S tyres on the back, pulled a few Land Rovers with road tyres off grass :lol:
Keep on exploring :D

And traction control. It's something that I need to keep adjusting, if you're moving it should be on, if you're standing still or moving slowly it should be off. Very easy to get stuck with traction control on. Had a look at parts list to retrofit 4Motion. Looks like a no. :o

Finally fitted the T6 repeaters - advertised as Caddy, but slightly bigger and have to remove the fixing tab to fit Image

Drew got to ask did they send you silicone with the roof bars as just bought my bars same place and van was soaked inside after fitting them. They don’t mention about sealing the bolts in the instructions at all. If I was you check after we get rain or get the hose out to make sure.

Just wondering if it would have been easier to use tint spray or film to achieve the same result?
