What are your professional views on this welshgas??, I maybe thought it would be an easy job as the older 2008 T5 I believe hasn't got the Canbus system and all wiring could be done behind the rear lights for a diy'er

I‘m no expert, but I believe your vehicle does require Coding of towbar electrics etc for full functionality eg: switching off rear parking sensors when hitched up, switching off rear foglight and adjusting rear braking pressure etc.
This company comes recommende, could be worth giving them a call. PF Jones.

Simpler, non-coding systems an be fitted but I don’t know how they would be wired to carry out those functions.
