C4 Picasso "possible" upgrades?

Post by larjandukic »

Hello, newbie here and what does newbie do? Ask stupid questions. That’s right. So I am here to play my part.

Anyway, long shot here but I’m glad I found a forum for my new car even if dont get what I need from this topic. I recently bought a used 2017 C4 Picasso, restyled version. Been searching for it for months and finally found one in good condition but unfortunately with low equipment since in my country it's near to impossible to find one with good equipment. I would like to know if some OEM upgrades are available, I saw throughout the forum that admins can help if VIN is provided. So, here is VIN VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff] and upgrades I am trying to figure out if they are doable are Reverse Camera, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Sensors and maaaybe Motorized Tailgate (probably very highly unlikely)? Honestly, I doubt I can do any of those but at least an OEM reverse camera would be a cool addition!

Sorry for the long post and really hope you can help me get some answers. Thank you.

Hi

Basically factory fitted originals - a big NO. The options you specify are factory fitted where available and these will have specific wiring looms and ECUs in addition to the hardware itself and the programming. some optional equipment may also require a full electronic architecture instead of an economy architecture, which affects the multiplexed wiring system used and also the BSI type.

The tailgate is a very complex bit of kit and not only is it completely different part to the non-motorised version, but the wiring looms and struts are different. The tailgate alone without the wiring and additional requirements would be about £1063.00.

Reversing camera: as an example, to fit front and rear sensors, the correct wiring loom and the vision pack without the screen would cost in parts alone about £760 without fitting. These are some options from Citroen for fitting of OEM parking assistance accessories, but some of these options exclude Automatic vehicles - so you would need to consult with the dealer.

Lane Assist requires the front facing camera module and a compatible Head Unit - so big bucks again..

I'll pause there as I think you get the picture.

Yeah, I figured, just need someone to confirm it like you did. Was hoping for at least a camera, because friend of a friend has literally the same exact car as mine, only addition he has is massaging seats and reverse camera. It was really weird to see only those differences when I drove it. Thanks a bunch!

One more question. I noticed a little crack on the plastic between chrome parts that make a citroen logo above the front bumper. Are those two chrome parts and plastic beneath/between them separate from the whole bumper? Can I just buy that middle part beneath/between chrome and replace it?

The 'Emblem Bracket item (10) is a complete unit that includes the logo as you can see. Part: 1617536680 £105.17 in the UK. The 2 chrome parts (top and bottom) that make up the logo can be removed once you have the backing plastic containing them removed so you can get to the rear, but as far as I can see, spare parts only have the whole emblem support and the chrome bits as one part.

Unfortunately, as this is fixed in with multiple clips behind the bumper, it is necessary to remove the bumper to get to it. Be careful though as the headlamp washer pipes and other cables may be attached behind the bumper.

I just found a link with the same part referenced in the item (if you look at the listing), but I'm not the seller so can't guarantee that - that's your job to do :wink: - but it's just for visual reference and will be the same fixing regardless.
