Are you doing it yourself?
Is that a kit from Ebay? I've found some there , and I'll have to buy them for the Dacia, because otherwise my Sister won't be happy about it.
Yeah, did it myself. All that's left to do is plug everything in and store the controller somewhere.
It's a 35? kit bought online :lol: can't be bothered to pay VW ten times that amount.
Did the same thing with the Astra two years ago, except that it was less of a hassle. The Skoda's bum is fully encased for aerodynamics so I have to remove the bumper. With the Astra you could just scoot under it and work inside the attached bumper.
With both cars I'm getting the sensor cables inside through the right rear light case, that's also where the power comes from - right reversing light.
Hooray for the Octavia! I see your trip computer is as hit-and-miss as mine!
Indeed. Judging by the spritmonitor.de statistics it's ranging from 0.1l/100km under to 0.6l/100km over the pump figure, average is 0.23l/100km over.
