I'm visiting a chap for the coding on my mk4 tail lights this Saturday. I'll have a chat with him to see if vag can pro can be used to code the vans bcm to accepting led side light bulbs without having to mess about with resistors etc.
He did say that high beam low beam led bulbs will cause issues.

They do throw up an error code, but I'm not that fussed about it

Looks like they tried to remove the old signwriting with a fekkin brillo pad.

Heavy cut & some wet sanding in places to get rid of the worst of it

They don't care, and I'm sure they choose overcast days to hand over so that it is not immediately obvious.

Been for its MOT today (passed), and a check on the air con which has decided its too hot to work any more. It needs a new condenser which is gonna set me back the best part of £500, and while moving it onto the rolling road they said it was like riding a pogo stick. The rear shocks are shot, so thats less than a year they have lasted from when Vogue did the modification.

In retrospect, I wish I'd bought a standard van and had the modifications done myself or by trusted mechanics. Would have saved myself a bag of cash also.

I wonder what will break on it next......
