2008 C4 grand picasso upgrades?

Post by taffy »

Hi all!,was looking to see if anyone has been able to put exclusive parts on a vtr I had an exclusive before it was damaged,I've bought a cheap vtr with gearbox problem for 550,just done timing belt water pump full clutch dmf slave lower arms anti rolls too strut mounts all fluids filters and it's just beautiful! However I miss the features of the exclusive I had like digital heater controls the seats the mirrors the rear heater controls the list goes on,just wondering if the wiring maybe in the loom ready for upgrades as I remember my xantias were,thanks for reading and hope to hear from you soon!

No the looms are different and the electrical architecture used can differ according to model trim / options. The BSI may be different and there are multiple different looms, so to be realistic it's a non-starter.

LED headlights weren't available on a 2008 Picasso, so I'm assuming you have just replaced the halogens with LED bulbs - in which case they're not legal - so be careful there for insurance purposes.... as they are not approved for installing in halogen headlamp units.

Appreciate that regarding the MOT and I would agree they are a lot better, just mentioned that it can void your insurance so make sure you tell them.

Jim is about, but he's more into his running / cycling these days, so only dips in and out on the Forum. Not sure about 'xm' as we have a few members that could apply to :wink:
