Thank you @Noah2310
Your Silver Caddy looks very very tidy indeed, and I really like the Audi wheels, they suit it perfectly 👍

Looking really great - I’ve also ordered some side skirts from RK Designs, and will replace my side rails in due course. I like the side rails but a couple of winters and van stood still for months while I’m working at home has taken its toll and they’re starting to develop rusty spots. I think the side skirts look a lot more “factory”, hopefully they’ll be on their way soon.

Thanks for the comments chaps 👍
@mark1a, I’m pleased with the factory look too
I’ve also got myself a pair of plastic ramps as well, if we ever do get to travel abroad again 😤 I’ll be putting them in the back with the low profile trolley jack, and the space saver.
I’m raging about this latest Covid-19 shite 🤬 I was due to finish work in Suffolk on Wednesday mid morning, to head off home to Kent. But had to set off last night, to get back home in time for a cancelled Christmas. 2.5 lost days pay now. Sick of it, absolutely fuc**ing sick of it all.

The van looks very well with skirts, however that even would be with just a standard van with color coded bumpers. For the maxi still just one shape, swb caddy owners can choose out different shapes.

Enjoy the van! Hopefully that life gets more normal soon.

@RKDesigns
Thanks Ronnie
I'm really pleased with the skirts mate. As you say, there's more choice for the SWB boys in terms of shapes, but I like the look of mine overall

Side skirts look the nuts mate. Sick van all round! Do the paddles on the MFSW all work too?

Hello @CA66YHL thank you for the comment
The part number for the wheel was OEM 6C0419091 MFSW for VW Polo 6C
https://www.cars-equipment.com/en/shop
and you can also find them without paddles, you can mail Vaclav Pekar on this site for advice and what he’s got in stock. Remember I chose this wheel to have Red Backlit buttons like the other lights in my Caddy cabin, plus doing it this way I didn’t need the Spacewalker module. Only other thing to note was that I had ACC as standard, but ended up ditching that and just kept Cruise Control

I then had the wheel retrimmed how I wanted it by Control Customs 😃

You’ll also need to buy a round airbag. The Airbag will need some slight modifications to the wiring loom, @Claudiu2s on here fitted mine and coded, he’s a top bloke, his website is VCDS-Diagnostics. You can get cheaper airbags if you shop around👍 Claudiu is contactable on here or via
vcds.diagnostic@gmail.com
It wasn’t the cheapest mod, but I’m happy with the results 🤣
All the best
