First of my small improvements, had a look at the official mud spats, but my dealer said they weren’t available at the moment.

Think this has changed now but I decided to risk the id3 ones from Ali G’s as I only wanted the fronts but for the price worth a try.

As you can see I had to make a small modification as the born has slightly wider side skirt.

But all the original bolt holes line up.

For the money they fit ok and look factory.

That's some diligent knife trimming! Good to see you avoided the dreaded Flintstone tyres, i'm hoping that my V2 E-Boost will also come on some decent runnber for once (my last 6 VWs have all come on Bridgestone Potenza or Turanza).
Some crappy anonymous old banger. :lol:

The V1 (on 18" wheels" that I test drive last week (because the promised V2 E-Boost test drive car wasn't ready and they didn't tell me it wasn't) was on Bridgestone Turanza, but I suppose that's in line with the 18" wheels on the ID3. The ID3s with bigger wheels (19", 20") generally don't come on with Bridgestones.

Just had this come through the post today,
I liked the idea of not have to cut the car’s wiring as it’s plug and play, also looks factory.
I went for the rear dash cam option but was disappointed that rear looks a bit aftermarket, so ended up adapting it.

The front is very easy to fit, just Unclip the front windscreen camera cover, disconnect three pin connector, plug in FITCAMX where that came from, re fit and your done.

This is there YouTube fitting instructions.



The hard bit is the rear one !
