    Smoked Glass on the rear window of my VW CC

    Hi

    Anyone fitted a dash cam to the rear window of VW CC 2013 which has smoked glass (?) in the rear window. Halfords did not want to fit one because they have doubts about quality of the recording. Anyone been there, done that? Would appreciate advice.

    Also if I were to take on this job and hardwire it, from where should I take the power source.?

    Thanks if you can help me.

    Hi Eddie, if it were me I would purchase the camera and try it out on a very temporary lash up with the usually quite long supplied lead with cigar lighter plug and plug it into your 12v socket, trying it out during daylight, dusk and night, then check the results. Halfords have a good returns policy and should refund if not suitable.if the darker lighting situations are not good enough quality then you may have to pay for a more expensive model.
    As regards a permanent setup if it goes ok then I'm unsure about the saloon CC but I reckon you could get cable down the back of the seats, under the boot lining, to the 12v socket in the boot. You would need to tap into this with a fused cable. This would be ideal as the power here will be ignition switched live.
    Good luck with your project, it's a shame these are not factory fitted or at least an option!
