The Workhorse

Post by Jamie_startline »

After years of working away from home and getting sick of missing the family and having a home life I decided late last year to go self employed. Naturally the first thing I needed was a van and it had to be a caddy. After having numerous golf’s, a polo and a vw up :roll: it was quite obvious that I’d have a soft spot for the caddy.
So I collected her on my birthday (by chance) early December 2022. And this is pretty much how she looked when I got her minus the sun strip.

It’s not like me to leave a car of my own standard, so while the mrs drives out ID.3 the workhorse is my to to do with as I please. Maybe not to everyone’s taste as I probably should have grown out of modding cars at my age but I’ll always be 18 in the head. My first mod was a roof and pipe rack, yeah I know, it’s not cool at all but it’s essential in my job. Then was onto the wheels. After just starting up business on my own funds were low but I managed to source a set of what I believe are Audi A6 wheels in 18”.

With spending a lot of the time on the road and taking calls one of the first things I needed was a hands free head unit. I didn’t know a lot about the higher spec vw head units at the time so I sourced a pioneer double din touch screen with CarPlay. The next thing I found was that the touch screen was distracting whilst driving, so I looked into a mfsw. I managed to get my hands on a mk3 scirocco flat bottom wheel which my old airbag fitted directly. I had to find an airbag look and swcm and then got to fitment.

How easy was it to fit and do the mfsw? Did you have controls before or were they retrofitted?
