I've had the 'original' cable, but that didn't work properly with the newer car (2020 Skoda Kodiaq), some of the 'functions' were locked out.

So I did the 'upgrade' to a new version, but that is VIN locked, so not good for sharing with friends etc.

If you are only going to use on the 'older' cars, then get a second hand old cable, otherwise, you just have to fork out for the VIN model and decide how many you want to use it for (I ended up upgrading the VIN qty).
 
Probably but I want nothing to do with direct injection.

I was thinking of getting the professional kit that has unlimited vins

First retro fit to the polo
So glad I did this
Genuine VW apple car play unit
Works perfect
Had to install the roof unit for the mic but got the LED interior soft lights with it which makes this a multi retro fit
Was a bit of rewiring needed but got there in the end

But this is a huge addition to this little beast!

Ill have to say installing this makes this an absolute different car now.
Hard to explain but its a game changer.
Im thinking of even installing the 2016 dash cluster and duel co trol flat bottom wheel. But that might be a huge job being that I have to change the whole controller module meaning id have to pull the dash apart lol.
I got the controller unit to go though

I'm also looking at a new steering wheel, which will finish off that front part of the interior.

I agree, changing to a modern screen really changes the car. I've also swapped out the ash tray and grab handles...and also the aurcon controller for a second hand white dial one to modernise it.

Thinking about fitting a toe ball on the beast, but iv always been hesitant thinking it’s going to devalue it some how.
I’m just a purist thinking if it’s got a bell it’s had a hard life. That’s just my personal thoughts but I really do need one lol.
What ya think? Should I fit it up?

Not sure on the factory for yours, but we have a swing one on the skoda kodiaq that is completely hidden.. couldn't have lived without it

I thought you were selling the Q5 Muckman?
 
It’s for sale but I’m not too keen to sell it. If it sells it sells but I do want to keep it.
Ones my house is built I’m keeping it for sure

Totally worth it. Tow balls aren't just for caravans and boats - bike rack, odd trailer, etc.
 
Got my new tool kit in.
My god this bench is a heavy one over 100KG
Probably kincrom’s best quality. Very solid very smooth operation of draws.
Got the EVA draw fittings but the main socket set was from another model but I cut away the edges and got it to fit perfect.
The kincrom rep told me this couldn’t be done but he wants pics to see if it works.
I just love how I got every socket in the one draw.
Ones I get my house built I’m gonna make a heavy duty work bench to bolt on this.

nice one mate, I'm looking at these options as well. Can you send me a PM with price/contact details?

I've started to buy the side cabinets... and was going to buy this, but would really like the tools to fit in the rubber properly..

I went with this unit being of the build quality is unbelievably solid. It’s built like. No other Kincrome unit iv seen. It’s not tool trolly but a real work bench.
The ones you have show are trolleys and I find trolleys see somewhat lightweight and flimsy, also have **** all depth.
I’m going to be welding up a full stainless bench top to match this to bolt onto that will go along the walls in my house.
I could easily put a vice on this bench unit but I really don’t wana be drilling into it just yet. But you could easily do any work including sitting a gearbox or engine on this thing. I definitely wouldn’t be doing that sorta work on a trolley.
But yeh if you are looking for something for your garage I definitely would go a bench over a trolley any day. Worst thing I hate about trolley systems also is you can only have certain amount of drawers open at one time.
This unit has far more depth than a trolley and you can open all draws without it tipping. Also it can be bolted down that I will be doing.
So yeh if you go a trolley you definitely would need to have some sort of bench going over it if you want to want to do heavy work over it.
I highly recommend this unit.
