Took the r32 to my local vw dealers the same ones the completed the timing chain and major work exactly a year ago. I had a minor service as i had a major last year £179 didnt find anything else wrong which is good. I took a pic a year later. Its changed quite a bit 😂

Looks good Carl
Does it work better than the oem ones fitted when you push the button for night mode

The rear view mirror? The mk5 one i didnt even know had a button until i removed it, it was underneath and hard to reach the mk7 one has no button but works quicker and you can see clearer when its dimming.

Ive been after this mod for a while. Its a mk7 style reverse camera badge thats compatible with the mk5 with a minor mod and its to fit the vw rns510. So for those who dont know. You put in reverse the badge flips up and the camera pokes out. Drive off and badge flips down. Not that i need a reverse camera but more of a cool oem plus mod. I will be fitting later in the year once its warmed up a bit.

I used a colour coded dbp vinyl from klii motorwerkes on the new reverse camera badge. Same as my mk6 badge on the car now. Looks perfect 🥰 very happy

I admire your courage to do this kind of job. Really nice upgrade but of the type that takes me out of my comfort zone.

I fitted the mk6 controls today amd wasnt expecting that the buttons you press also come up on the stereo. Which is a rns510. Very happy with it.
