@gazza31112 yeah it’s how I bought it but I prefer it to black, bit different.

The parking sensors stopped working so since it's a nice dry day I thought I'd throw my head under to investigate. Looks like Edward scissorhands has done a bodge job on the wiring and one of the terminals had come off so I'll need to order all the bits and bobs and repair it properly but I did notice there wasn't a rear reinforcement bar fitted to the van. Bolts are there but the bar is missing, so that's something else to fork out for. May as well get the new 2016 shape bumper whilst I'm at it.

Spray tinted rear lights ,had a chrome grill, bit of an impulse buy, didn't like it.

Used the tint spray on it and the VW badge.
(Iv got the sensor behind so can't do anything else with it or buy an aftermarket or I get a front assist warning).
I like how it turned out, looks gloss black in the pic but the chrome on the grill turned more of a gunmetal.

Get a few layers of clear lacquer on it tonight and get them fitted tommorowImage

Be careful fitting the PTC heater in that fashion in a caddy with stop/start, it should really be integrated to the ECU to save damaging the smart alternator and battery.
I am working on the assumption, based on you having only one relay, that you are controlling the relay with an external source. This is not ideal.

Cheers doc, it’s dsg so no stop start, not ideal I know I’ve taken a signal from the rear heated screen to trigger the heater to come in and then drop out as the rear screen switches off

Picked up some xenons today, getting ready for the retrofit.
Anyone got mounting pics for levelling sensors?
