Looks lovely Giddy 👌

Does the bigger ARB stiffen up the rear noticeably?

Thanks @Stedlocks
Yes, it's very noticeable improvement. After driving it for the past couple days, I can tell it feels much more stable and planted to the road, especially on a twisty roads. I would say it's a 'must have' mod for every Caddy.

I'll look into it, ithink!

Is it only the white line one that is 24mm?
What about the Skoda yeti one, I wonder....? ;)

You don't have many options with the rear arb I'm afraid, it is unique to Caddy. You can use Maxi one, which is 22mm and still an upgrade for SWB Caddy.
Front arb is cross compatible with many VAG vehicles.

Some updates. So, over the weekend I fitted a "caddy alltrack" front spoiler and tinted the fog lights with lamin-x yellow film.

Also fitted new 18" wheels. They are 2forge ZF6, 8.3 kg per wheel.

As you can see, 18" alloy + 225/40 tyre is only around 250g heavier in comparison with factory fitted 16" alloy + 205/55 tyre, which I'm pretty happy with. After quick test run I cannot feel any negative impact on handling or comfort, will see how it feels after longer drive.

Thanks, perhaps going to fit wheel arches, but Vanstyle ones rather than genuine alltrack.
