I’ve ordered a T-cross but posted here because it’s relatively new and you guys have been ordering for some time.

I wanted to add a rear camera, I have park assist ordered but didn’t think I would want both. Now I do!

There is some debate about whether or not dealers will retro-fit the factory camera (integrated in the badge), but some people have had quotes of around £500. Some report 3rd party fitters using genuine VW parts but prices seem to vary a lot.

There is also a VW accessory camera which dealers can supply & fit for around £195 or £80 unfitted, but there is some doubt about an additional part being required which is not included in that price. The accessory camera clips in to one of the number plate lights, so it is NOT in the badge and may not provide the same image/view because it is lower down.

I'd start by asking your dealer first, then also try asking around some other dealers as they may give different answers.

Here are links to some threads on this forum for rear view camera, one for the VW accessory camera and also one for a full DIY kit.
