    Made a journey from Leeds (via Birmingham) to Poole to see Tim and James at Advanced In Car and get some goodies for my car.

    Camera is superb - hidden behind the middle visor and can't be seen from outside. Have checked the footage and looks good.

    The active door reflectors are awesome! Very bright. Below are a few pics taken at 10pm - one is with the camera flash.

    The guys are true professionals and was comfortable that they know what they're doing. Highly recommended and will be back if I decide to change my rear parking sensors!!

    As someone else from Leeds... wow, that's one hell of a drive! I considered it myself.

    Nice work there, Tim and James and great guys.

    Yeah, they're part of the light package along with: footwell lights, map lights, ambient LED's above gear stick, ambient lights in the door handles and maybe more (?).

    The stock lights won't be as bright though - these are with Trups's LED's which require a change in Vag Com for the car to accept

    Hey bud...

    Nice write up! Thanks for the praise, it's always nice to read :)

    Glad you have enjoyed the changes to your car and the trip down! That picture looks really good!

    RE: The Coding changes for LEDs - This was for your rear number plate and not the puddle / warning reflectors as these aren't monitored by the car.

    Time to start thinking about the next lot of toys... DAB? :p

    Cheers Tim - DAB's not a bad idea. Will have a think. Would I need to upgrade to a monitor HU or use existing?
