Reverse camera installation - London area?

Post by irini » Tue Apr 16, 2019 1:27 pm

Hi, I've seen a few posts on this but the locations suggested seem out of reach for the time being

We just got our Kodiaq and looking to add a reverse camera to make my life easier when parking .

Has anyone else installed a reverse camera in London ? If yes where? I can find lots of places that advertise that they can do it - but whether they can be trusted is a different story..

Still waiting for the dealer we bought the car from to confirm costs

Thanks and sorry if this subject keeps coming up every now and then by new members!

Can't help regards fitment centres in London but Birmingham dealers are quoting £500 all in, could even be more your neck of the woods!
I'm off up to Leeds on the 27th to have mine fitted, £280 all in by a fella highly regarded on here.

thank you for your response - yes I'm aware of the person you refer to - might ask him if he can recommend someone in london - unless someone else has any ideas :)

Wheelright, let us know how you get on as I’m interested too and have also been quoted the £500 retrofit price in the midlands.

I’d be interested to see how the integration is, is it just a plain view with guide lines or are there other options (not area view of course!). Also if it’s OEM and has the washer jet fitted and working? I presume it is.

Good luck

@ Aardvark, the camera fitted is the high version, complete with lens wash, guide lines, wide angle lens & various camera angles.
So for around 340 quid with travelling costs its a sound deal.
I'd imagine the OP would still be at least £100 better off travelling up from London over dealer price.

@wheelwright any chance you could pm me details for the guy in Leeds? We visit Leeds quite regularly so would be convenient for this mod?
