    Got carried away on ebay......................

    Have a Passat estate 56 reg with 185,000 miles now on the clock.
    This has proven to be a brilliant, reliable car.
    It has been even running on half and half of diesel/waste veg oil for the last 5 years (roughly 60,000) with no problems.

    So decided to buy a Bluetooth module for it so started looking on ebay......

    Ended up buying a L56VW2 for it to replace the RCD510. Apparently came out of a VW T6 van.

    I mean, how ridiculous, I normally do my research etc, but just got carried away by the cheap price I won it for......pay peanuts, etc...

    It hasn't arrived yet but I now think it won't work in my car.
    I have a Ross-Tech dongle and software, brilliant piece of kit, but I rather suspect I won't be able to code it for my car.
    I had to upgrade the canbus when I upgraded the radio about 7 years ago when the last radio broke.

    Any advice, does anyone know if I can use the radio, or should I put it back on ebay, or just take thehit for being a cheapskate?

    thanks

    I'm obviously going to some time this weekend.
    Will post the results on here.
    Not expecting great things.....haven't got a DAB aerial so have bought a splitter, must buy a USB port, don't know if I need a microphone, probably will...

    Hi maddogphysics, just wondering how you got on with this installation as I have virtually done exactly the same but with a 57 reg caddy van, can you advise on what canbus you used etc?
    Did it work?

    I'm afraid it hasn't worked yet.
    The RCD 510 had to have a new canbus gateway, ebay, last code was an E (old one had a C)

    The new radio doesn't even turn on yet, so not sure what to do now
