Hi All,

Does anyone know where i can get the VW reverse camera retrofit coded to work? Is it VW only who can do it?

Thanks in advance

Hi Axe,

Are you saying that you've had a retrofit reverse camera fitted and it's not working properly?

I wanted a reverse camera on my Clubsport but I got a car from stock, as many others have, so no camera was fitted. When I asked VW about a retrofit they were totally uninterested in having anything to do with it and advised against it

Hi, Yes that's correct. Self retro fitted but needs coding afterwards

You could try vwretrofit in Redditch - he did the same to my 7.5 GTI and it worked perfectly

However saying that, I’m not sure anyone has managed to make changes to a MK8 yet
On order for September (who knows what year): MK8 GTI Clubsport in Moonstone Grey, DCC, 19" Adelaide’s, Reversing Camera and Winter Pack.

Current: MK7.5 GTI Performance in Deep Black Pearl, DSG and 19" Genuine Gloss Black Pretoria's.

Advanced In-Car technologies have installed and coded the reverse camera on the Golf 8:

The Infotainment unit needs to be coded which is SFD protected...
