    VY Exec vs VY Crewman Wiring

    Hi Guys, Is the main wiring loom in the VY Crewman roughly the same as the Exec? I imagine the Crewman will have a few more wires given the extra features, but is the basic layout the same?

    Rear End Accidents

    Yeah I'm not completely sure, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that there were some exceptions. For example if the lead car deliberately locks up or "break tests" the trailing car etc. Not really sure though I couldn't find anything one way or the other on the rta website.

    Where to mount the amp?

    Mine is mounted on the left side wall. There is a flat section just big enough for it. Having said that, I'm looking at moving it to under the parcel shelf.

    window tinting

    One thing I learned was that the VY has silicon around all the windows that the tind doesn't cover very well (Imagine putting glad wrap on a basketball). This is not a huge issue, but something to prepare yourself for.

    Repairing Hail Damage

    I've been told you need to act fairly quickly if the paintless dent removal is going to work well. Can anyone shed any light on this? I've been told I'm probably looking at $100 per dent.

    Repairing metalic paint

    Yeah well I made the mistake of thinking cut and polish would remove a small scratch the same as normal paint - bad idea, don't try this at home. I still have the original scratch, as well as a dull area where I hit it with the polish.

    Fog lights for Executive

    I seem to remember reading that the headlight teardrop on the calais and berlina is different to that of the other models and therefore the front bars cannot be interchanged.

    Custom center console completed

    Holy crap there's some good $$ just in the cup holders and converter. I really like the white instrument cluster in the top one, is that out of ahigher model or is it custom? That second install looks sweet.

    Fitting electric windows

    Possibly a stupid question, but why do you need to replace the BCM? I have also considered upgrading to power windows but haven't really looked into it much yet. What are you planning to do with the holes left in the door trims?

    VY foggies

    I don't recommend trying to use stock relay locations in the engine bay - they are impossible to access. I suggest you purchase the proper fog light switch and do it properly.

    Or just paint the strips. I've done this and I think it looks quite good. However, my car is white which was quite easy to get a good colour match.

    If you just want them on permanently when the parkers or headlights are on, just wire them into the back of the the headlights. I had mine set up like this for a few weeks before I got the new lightswitch and it worked ok. The best spot to get thru the firewall is just near where the...
