I know this has been covered a number of times. My B9 Allroad has tinted rear windows from factory and the rear window is less practical than the B8, I’m seriously considering retrofitting a camera. There’s also a factory fitted towbar.

I dropped by the main dealer on Saturday, so the main camera and wiring is £290, plus they reckon 4 hours (£178 an hour) to fit including coding. From what I’ve read you need Odin. I have VCDS by the way.

If I could understand this guy I’d be sorted. Probably best video out there as how to. https://munteanubogdan.com/english/retrofit-reversing-camera-audi-a4-b9/

So here’s my dilemma, I think I have the skills to route the wiring (fixing a panoramic on my old B8 has shown me a thing or too) , then put it to Audi for the coding. If you’re screaming at me right now, whats the alternative, find a bespoke retrofit installer I trust with my car and just pay £550.
