You don't happen to have a link to the Auto lights switch on eBay (with the sensor)? I just don't want to order the wrong one.

Also, what size of wheels & tyres did you go for... Think I may have to bite the bullet soon :)

re auto lights this is the one,

http://www.ebay.ie/itm/281158842374?ssP ... 1423.l2649

takes about a month to arrive on the slow boat from china!! ha ha :D

the wheels are 225 40 r18, should have gone with 45's or 50's for a bit of piece of mind but happy with them all the same I only have them on from easter to November. think the off set is et45 but would have to check to confirm

Was the auto light yoke a plug and play affair?

Mines ply lined so won't be touching that, considering you could find anything in the back, but your seats and elentronic work I love.
Actually where did you pick up all the bits, Ireland or the UK? And what's the armrest with the cup inserts from?
Also I got mine remapped the other night, defiantly helps, van pulls better and nicer to drive, would say it's around 130-140bhp, defiantly doesn't have the torque or the power of my old 1.9 golf but it's a lot better than standard, just letting ya know because ya asked in my introduction.

Turbo chip up here beside me done it, they done my old golf and a few lorries around the house here and never had a problem so had no reason to go anywhere else. Wow 950 was good, I only got 800km to the light from full, must fill it again this weekend see what it's like and I'll keep you posted, I was only after drive ability as it felt way to dead for me, probably would have sold it if I didn't get it remapped because I couldn't live with it being so sluggish.
