Want a rear view camera for your Golf or GTI?

I get a lot of mail from people looking to add a rear view camera to their Golfs and GTIs so here is all you need:

– Make sure your radio is compatible by following the Radio compatibility guide fond here 

– Follow the instruction to the DIY found here


You can source the parts from places like Futrell and other after market parts retailers, happy modding!
