    Hi fellow Caddy owners,

    We have just picked up our new caddy that will be used out on the road for mobile remapping and as a general works van. (Might even use it weekends it's that nice)

    15,000 Miles on the clock and is like new inside and out, and she is DSG :blink1:


    Here's a few pics, let us know what you think.

    DSG, world's greatest invention.

    Not that I'm trying to teach you to suck eggs, but DON'T skimp on the DSG fluid services. I know someone that did and had to pay several thousands for a new box cos VW wouldn't honour the warranty.

    I shall get the DSG Oil changed :D... Had a Mk5 Golf GTI DSG that I miss very much.

    I have just won a GTI DSG Paddle Shift steering wheel on eBay:D.. So i'll post some info up when I have fitted and coded it to work.

    Would like to lower it maybe by 40mm with some Eibach just to stiffen it up through corners. The Touran is the same chassis etc and same shocks but rides 15mm lower than a caddy. So by lowering the caddy 40mm, only really lowering it 25mm if you see where I'm coming from. Ride comfort won't be compromised in other words.

    Well, it has so far:

    Air Con
    Elec Windows
    Elec Heated Mirrors
    Appearance Pack (Colour Coded)
    17" VW Alloys with Winter Michelin Tyres
    Front Fog Lamps
    Tinted Glass
    Rear Glass anti theft protecting grille's
    Rear bumper protector
    Roof Bars
    Upgraded Xenon Kit fitted with L.E.D Side Lights
    Caddy Maxi Seat in the rear with Seat Belts (Seats 4)
    Fully Lined, Sound Deadening and carpeted in rear.
    Kenwood Garmin Sat Nav Unit, with iPod Control
    Reverse Camara
    Multi Function Leather Steering Wheel
    Side Bars

    Done some coding with Vag Com:
    Headlamps come on when unlocked now
    Headlamps go off after 20-30sec after locking
    Seat Belt reminder off! (Ding Ding)

    I should think 140bhp at least, I will put it on the dyno if there's space on the dyno day to see what she's making at the wheels.
