Give that part number to VW mate, it's a valid part number for Caddy and Transporter. Part No 15 in the diagram https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/cadd ... 57-857047/

I'm fairly sure this is the same bumper as @dan the yam posted here https://www.caddy2k.com/forum/viewtopic ... start=9510
Perhaps he can give you more details when it's finished.

well i'd not done much to my van for a bit, but found the xclusive body kit for a god price a month or so ago... so I sent her in for a make over and I think she's looking HOT!
she should be ready to come home from SGR body works Nottingham this afternoon or tomorrow, however Stephan sent me some preview pics and I just can't keep em to myself, more pics when she's home

Painted the grab handles and installed new ports for the usb and 3.5 audio in for the head unit.. ImageImage
Thinking about retrofitting the touran dashboard but worried that it’s a bit over my head.. is there any guides out there or advice from folks that have done that?? What style of dash should I be looking for etc??

You’ll be surprised at how easy it is mate. Any pre 2015 model will do. When you get one check that it has the vent ducts and side mounts with it.

sorry for delay.... yes thats the same one, if you are in caddy groups on FB the guy sometimes puts deals on, Sheffield based.
my guy who painted and fitted mine is a friend of his and can do good deals as I found out after :evil:
