My car :D

You need adapter wiring harness which is supplied with radio.
Depending on age of your car, it's not always straight forward, I had to upgrade other things too.

Hi guys
Last Saturday I  successfully retrofitted Discover Media unit into Ady's 2005 Golf MK5. Some of you probably see it already but there are the pics:













Unfortunately we didnt have time to play with it yet and just fitted it to see how it goes. All will be finished this Saturday so more pics to follow. All works fine on White or Colour clocks so far.

Regards


Newbie here so sorry if this doesn’t read right.

How did you manage to plug the harness into the media unit as noticed that the blink connectors are slightly different. I’ve been trying to find an adapter but not luck. Is there one that you used that you could link me too please?

Many thanks

sorry to dig this thread up again - was wondering if this unit would fit in a MK6? or does it have the same issues as the mk5? mines a 2009 GTD

Should be fine in a mk6
Still need one with cp disabled and other bits enabled, before you buy.

Usual disclaimer, if it doesn't work, don't have a go at me!  :party:
