How did you get on fitting the rear camera on the Xtron unit? Did you use a cabled connection or did you go WiFi?

Have got one myself and thinking of fitting one, did you go for the number plate light camera? Got any pics or links please Kneller?

Thanks
It was ok to be honest. I hate wiring but it was pretty self explanatory. I went for this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/XTRONS-C...654962?hash=item25e4dfb0b2:g:DssAAOSwTmtaCvAF

I have a pic of it fitted, please excuse how dirty the car is, it needs a good clean! I'll grab a picture of the screen later showing how it looks when turned on.

I have the Xtrons PB76AA4P, which is the Octa-core Android Marshmallow. I have the non-Bose and it was a straight fit with everything fitting straight in and working perfectly. I heard people saying that rear speakers may not work on non-Bose, but mine work just fine.

Here it is fitted..

Coilovers are being fitted Saturday, and I'm going to see if I can get my brakes painted at the same time.

I also went along to my regular custom exhaust guy (Dean at Pipecraft in Basildon for those local to me who know) for a quote on a custom dual-exit system. I'm happy with the price so I'll be getting that booked in ASAP.

No pictures today as the car is filthy, but I'll grab some before and afters once the coilovers are fitted.

Coilovers fitted. Still need to bring the rears down a touch, but I'm happy with it. It rides pretty well and looks spot on!

looking good Kneller, hows the ride firm?
Thanks! It's firm, but not too much worse than the standard sport suspension to be honest. I've not driven it too much though, so I'll update once I've done my daily commute a couple of days this week!

Not a Cupra splitter, it's one of the EZ lips (also called Rhino lip AFAIK). Super easy to fit and flexible too which is great where it's lower now.

Awesome work bud! Makes me wish I had held out for an Avant! Anything else planned?

Thanks! I have a few bits planned, next up being satin black wheels and roof rails, and a service. After that custom exhaust and mapping :D

I went and grabbed some new shots over the past couple of days, so thought I'd upload them here for you lovely lot! Apologies for how many there are - I got a bit carried away!
