  1. Just had my Amarok detailed. Stage 1 paint correction and sealed before winter. Really pleased with the result.

    I like the look of this but I think the mrs would leave me.

    Rns315 DAB

    Kenwood DNX520 are around £450 used on eBay. I think I’ll fit one of those. They look oem, have a bigger screen and retain all factory features and controls. Absolutely extortionate at £999 new in my opinion. At least when you drop £1k on a apple product it’s quality, even if the price is ridiculous.

    It does but I was thinking VCDS would let me know if I had it instead of dismantling my dashboard to take the head unit out and check for the aerial plug hole.

    I have a 2016 RNS 315 with Bluetooth, parking sensors and rev cam. Am I correct in assuming DAB is simple to code in? There is a local guy with VCDS on gumtree who will check for £15. I’m thinking that is easier than taking my dash apart to look for a fakra connector that I’m pretty sure will be there on a 2016? Thanks

    I’m shocked by how well it drives. Much quieter than the vans I test drove and miles better than a ford ranger. Spec is as nice as my Volvo XC60 lux nav polestar lease which goes back next week. I went over budget by £5k but I really liked it. Trying to avoid buying the hertz components I’ve just been looking at. The rns 315 I’ve got lacks DAB which sucks too

    I’ve not had a VW since I got a new 2.0 gt tdi golf in 2005. I needed a van so I had been looking at caddy and Transporters. I viewed a 65 plate caddy highline that I liked, but the lack of seats and small load area put me off a bit. If I put more seats in there would be barely enough room to carry my tools and generator. I started looking a t5 and t6. But the prices were really high for half decent spec due to there popularity as campers. Then I stumbled across a 2016 Amarok highline dsg with pretty much every option. I love everything about it apart from the speakers that I will need to upgrade.
