    The prices they show are a lot more than others, then you read that you still need to add VAT to it! £395 turns into £474.
    I wanted to use them to fit front parking sensors, as SEAT dropped them in 2016, but they want nearly £700. I bet they don't sell many of them!

    £279 is pretty good. Wonder if they'd do a group price.

    I bet there will be another 10% eBay code shortly so could be even better

    Do you have a pic of the camera installed? Is it noticeable?

    Did you order from Carsystems? I ordered from them (RVC high) and here's what they sent me:

    Hi

    I send you coding information and scheme how connect this set

    ADD 6C TO 19

    5F ADAPTATION:
    CAR FUNCION LIST BAP GEN2-VPS-----ACTIVE
    CAR FUNCION LIST GEN2 - VPS msg bus -------TERMINAL 15

    Calibration you will have to do yourself if you need it
    Best regards


    Carsystems Team


    Very poor instruction info but I believe I will make it with some help from ELSAwin. What did you use for the coding? VCDS or something else? The above instructions are for VCDS.

    Please tell your coding options so I can check. Note that i had to buy an original ross tech cable because the chinese one I had could not read the car (2019 Cupra) whatsoever.
