I done o2m 6 speed in 1.9tdi caddy few years ago.
Whatever rews i had in 5th gear on 5 speed box at 70mph it was same as 6 speed box in 5th gear.so u driving at like 70mph at 3000 rews and then select 6th gear rews drop everything goes really quiet and it cruses down the motorway great!

@janis I hope I'll do this mod too in the future, I really miss the 6 speed gearbox from my previous car.
@bertiebasher I bought the unit from Aliexpress. You can find many models and prices go from 50 to 500€. Just search for " Android navigation for VW Golf V, Touran, Passat B6, all of them are plug&play for Caddy.
Here is an example:
#Aliexpress € 237,19 10%OFF | CarExc 7 Inch 2-DIN Android 9.0 Radio for Volkswagen VW Skoda Octavia golf 5 6 touran passat B6 jetta polo tiguan Built-in CarPlay With DVD GPS Navigation Car Muiltmedia Player System
https://a.aliexpress.com/_d6ApwUM

#Aliexpress € 259,55 32%OFF | 2 Din Car DVD Radio 7'' HD For VW Volkswagen POLO GOLF 5 6 MK5 MK6 PASSAT MK7 Android 8.0 8 core With GPS Navigation Radio RDS
https://a.aliexpress.com/_dYIsd7e

Here is a cheaper one:

This weekend I took out the Golf seats that I had in the van and "dressed" them with some black leather covers. I also removed the Caddy seat rails and mounted the Touran ones after I carpeted them.
The seats don't compare with some OEM VW leather seats but I am pretty happy with the result.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Thank @maxthecaddy , I appreciateImage.
I haven't done much to the car latelly, just some small bits, cheap and nice for my eyesImage. Sorry for the dirt, but the car's been sitting in the same place from the end of July and I didn't have time for her, but next week will start again to gather miles.
I still have mods waiting to be installed, like the fog lights kit, highline BCM from a B6 Passat, Golf 5 maxidot instrument cluster ( but Immo 4C it's a real pain, maybe I willl look for a pro for this if I can't do it myself, unfortunately I don't have any @Doc around meImageImage), continue with the sound deadeing, etc...ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Today I finally had time to do the CECM upgrade. The transplant It was a toyal succesImage I had a little bit of trouble with the coding , because mine was a midline 22 bit and the new one is a 30 bit highline. My side turn signals worked the same as the parking lights and didn't worked when I was turning the signals left or right. The problem was byte 24. I had to put everything to 00000000.
Thanks to @C Chis, to his post from the Electrical section I installed also the footlights, conector B, pin 7. they work like factoryImage
Now I am thinking what to do to have the footlights always on during the night( I have this option to my other car and it's awesome) . Maybe use another pair of lights and connect them to an illumination wireImage
I also installed 2 speakers in the back on the seats but it's still work in progress. They work though.
Next step will be to install the fog lights and activate also cornering.

Awesome!

Have a look through your coding as the footwell lights should also be on when your lights are on.
