    That's a shame, but he does sell just the parts too.

    So if you could fit yourself / get someone it fit, it will look and work like the factory fit version?

    What camera did you use and does it require coding beside OBD?

    At this price, I wouldn't bother with a genuine one, unless you're lucky and could find one at a breakers.

    The genuine camera from SEAT is around £185. I looked into this recently. Price and part numbers vary slightly depending on if you have a pre facelift car or not, and vehicle shape (ie 3 or 5 door or estate). You also have to factor in the camera bracket that fits into the rear bumper which is another £30 ish in top.

    Part list for a Facelift MK3 5 door hatch as follows:

    5F0807210 (Rear bumper camera support)
    6C0807151 (Rear bumper camera end cap)
    3Q0980121T (Rear camera)

    For FR I used 5Q0980568A and for Cupra 5Q0980556B. Both ordered from vwModule. If I remember correctly price was about 150 - 180 euros (cables included). Coding manual was included but camera parametrization has to be made for VW not for Škoda :)

    I'd rather spend the bit extra and get the Ampire cam

    I've got an FR black edition on order but it doesn't appear to have the rear camera. How much would a dealer charge to install a camera?

    Got my camera installed at the weekend. £400 fitted (could have bought the parts for £270 if I was confident of fitting myself). Included a wedge style camera fitted inbetween the 2 reg plate lights. Looks very good and working well - activates with the reverse gear like the factory fitted version.

    Looks good. The screen display is slightly different to factory fitted cameras but I prefer yours. The image area of the vehicle outline with the sensor proximity lines is more opaque so you can see more of the camera image.

    Yeah that always annoyed me with the factory fitted ones (had it in my old VW Polo and my current T-Roc). Really cannot complain at the quality vs the price. Reverse camera was something I felt the FR trim should have had as standard...

    This must be the way the fitter has coded it within the car?

    Not sure if there was any coding, its a plug and play interface that went into the MIB Unit in the glovebox (I'm not too clued up about how it all works so maybe there was coding done from the plug and play device?)
