Sounds like a big job, I'll wait till I see the night pic before I make my mind up about fitting one

Night pic is black and white, more pixelated but you can see things. It does get thrown off if you get a bit of light in the pic, then you get a huge blur of white before the camera tries to re-adjust.

Still better than not having one. :thumbsup:

Cheers

Seems like loads of hard work, is there such a thing as plug and play or an easy option.

yeh alot of work but worth it, i spent £12 camera, £2 relay, £4 on wire, 12 hours labour @ free, also where i located mine was new teratory so i had no instructions and it took abit of doing also if i used scotch locks and not solder no heats shrink and lashed it in i could have done it quicker but i was steady too like tea every half hour, but it must add a small amount on resale and also its the little things that make a car stand out when your selling it on :D

Ok so who want to fit one for me, I don't have no spare half days to fit one. I will supply you with hot drinks, or cold if that's what you like, full English and fish and chips.

It's no lol it's a gen offer, no bull here. Just think full English yum yum, fish and chips for dinner, and as much drink as you can drink.

So if any body wants to take this limited time offer, it's first come first served basis

Another mod I am considering. Trouble is, I too like to spend time making a reasonable job with the wiring and would prob take me 2 days to fit lol.
Do they make tiny 0 lux cameras with wipers on? I know the back of my X is the first place for dirt to land  :(

Thought i'd post up a couple of pics of my camera install,managed to complete it in about half a day.The camera is an Ebay jobbie and is as small as i could possibly find so as to look OEM and very discreet.Its a PAL camera but with the help of Resler & Navcoder this wasn't a problem.
