Finaly a new daily van :D

Post by Fus »

Hi caddy2k world!

I'm new here and have just made the transition from a warrior Peugeot Partner to an awesome Caddy 2.0 Tdi 2018 8)

Image

My Old friend, been with me the past 6 years :shock:

Sadly the new caddy just survived nearly 2 months before this happened :cry: :
Image

Image
A BMW X1 hit me at 80 kph :roll:

But luckily I where uninjured and the insurance company was swift to pay out so a identical Caddy was bought (without the livery though) :mrgreen:

The new caddy at the dealers:

Mod goals for this van:

+ Window tint
+ Sun strip on the windscreen
+ Wind deflectors
+ Rear wing addon
+ Paint bumpers silver

+ More to come :D

Thanks! :mrgreen:

Got some small stuff done today: :)

Tinted the rear windows (just got one photo :roll: )
Image

And made a sunstrip from the tint leftovers :D
Image

Image

I think it turned out pretty good :) No more feeling of driving around in an "aquarium" :lol:
Image

Will try to fit led bulbs tomorrow (4xH7's).
They seem like a pain in the *** to fit, and requires special retainers.
Will save up for bi-xenons in the future, but ebay leds will do for now :lol:

Hi and wellcome! Sad to hear that the first Caddy had such a tragic death, I hope everybody was fine .
What are the specs of this second Caddy? Some pictures with the interior would be also nice :D

Thanks! Image
Both where unharmed, I just got a bursted eardrum from the impact noise and side airbag Image

I recon the caddy is a pretty safe car, atleast safer than the old partner Image

It's a 2.0 tdi 102hp (sadly no 4motion)
It has the large radio with app connect and the so-called comfort wall(?) for better leg room Image

Just got it tuned at the local Quantum tuner and now it pulls like a train Image

Got around and changed the headlight bulbs today Image

This would be the "mod" I'm the least proud of Image

Had some Novsight f06 H7 bulbs laying around and I earlier discovered the "beautiful" retainer mechanism...

Having received new retainers for the led bulbs I went on with fitting the bulbs assuming it would be a straight fit.

And it didn't go quite as planned Image

Because it weren'ta straight fit Image

Had to grind down the led bulb coolers, glue the retainer to the bulb base.
And even glue the bulb base to the bulb Image

It was a mess...

But after a while they where installed, with far better light output (and some glare of course Image)

But I'm certain now that I will retrofit bi-xenons next year Image

The pictures speaks for itself
