I seen a 14 reg all red tdi last weekend, never seen that on a caddy before, I assume it was the 2.0L 140 brake?

Could very well be. The spec in the new vans is class really sets them apart from the rest.

Today I took out the roof skin and installed the led lights.

Good idea with the lights, might do it with mine too.

Are you just wiring them back to the main light in the back? Are you using a relay or just straight onto the existing wiring?
