Tony, you wouldn't believe how rubbish they were! The response I got to my complaint, including more pictures than I uploaded here was basically

"It is what it is. Send them back if you don't like them, oh and you're to pay for return postage too as we don't agree with you, they're fine"

Wouldn't recommend them in a million years.

Re the mats. Customer service at its best eh?

Did I read the other day you’re in Merseyside? You can’t be too far from me if that’s the case, I’m in Aintree.

Sorry if I've missed this but where did you get your side repeaters from? I quite fancy a pair myself.

If you want more power get a vibe micro inline amp. 4×65w rms and you can get a t harness so it all plugs in behind the dash

Hi bud great job on your van so far 👍🏻. Did you have to code your side repeaters in or where they just plug and play with no warning light coming up on the dash ?

Hey

Thanks so much!

I luckily didn't have to code the repeaters. It was plug and play for me.

I'm unsure if I'll get away with the front and rear lights when I get around to doing them...we will see!


I done this today:

Booked in for Bilstein :shock:

Trying to figure should I wait 3 months for warranty to end or just get it mapped at the same time :?

@McCaddyGascar Cheers for that bud and 3 months is a long time to wait so I would just go for it 👍🏻

I've owned it 3 months and I think it's flown by. But I have been busy on it. Ran out of stuff at the min, until my new Vanstyle order turns up. Oops.

Got my side repeaters from vanstyle today, apart from one having a damaged plug and pin which I've managed to repair all is well and they look great, as you say they look too good not to have them, very happy. I went for the clear ones to match the originals.
Cheers for the heads up.
