No need to get defensive or emotional. Of course any importer needs a margin. I didn't know you were the importer but even so, this is an enthusiasts site, not a commerce site so thought it appropriate to let the punters know there's more or less no risk or delay to go to the source.

A bit of disclosure would have put you in good stead.

And thanks for the tip; unecessary sarcasm not withstanding.

More interesting was how many acted on the tip (which at the time included a link to the chinese source), and not one thought to say thanks; yourself included. Maybe that's your idea of how an "enthusiast's site" works, but it has never been mine

lol, there's always one who feels compelled to state the obvious

the reason I bought them in was because I had messages from persons who didn't want to buy from china, or to wait for delivery

if you think that happens without a margin then you're a bit green

pleased that you are grateful for the advice I gave you - always good to get a word of thanks aye, and the buyers from NZ who popped up immediately after this initial post were more than a few

is this adaptor model specific ?

will it get my rcn210 talking to my steering wheel buttons ?

It has been made specifically for the "MIB" (modular entertainment platform radios) and in particular the RCD330G.

I can't imagine it working with an old radio like the the RCN210

If you do some reading on the RCD330G you will see that it has so much more to offer that you could be better ditching the RCN210, altogether?

But more than twice the price. Mine arrived in less than a week. Installed today. Works perfectly and really good connectors. Highly recommended.

I really do like the Touaregs, but having had one powered by a R5 motor (2.5lt pumpe duese turbocharged diesel) which broke down four days into my ownership and needed an $11,000 replacement head, I can't see myself buying a version powered by what is essentially two R5 motors V'd together. Go on someone, I dare you to buy it!

I'd also like to know to be fair?

But as you mentioned, there are two sides of the story.
So it would be interesting to know their side of there story.

By connecting an ammeter in series with the battery negative terminal you can see what the parasitic current draw is.
