I had mine hard wired directly to the overhead console. Nearly invisible which is one thing I wanted. Something that wouldn't immediately draw attention or have to be removed and replaced every time I drove. Enjoy yours though!

Washed mine after over a month of having it. Finally have some good weather on the horizon. I love that it’s white. Makes washing it so much easier! I don’t have to go back and get troubled areas because it’s darn near impossible to see anything on it! Takes about half the time my truck did! These are my go to choice of tools for this job!

On Friday I took the wagon in for the rear spring recall and tire rotation. So far so good.....

This drawer under the driver seat is a golf only thing I was told my my sales lady when I found mine on the test drive.

SELs have no room for the drawer because of the additional power seat motors & drives.

I put another set of H7 ZXE headlights in, as the drivers side crapped out on Monday. Of course I found the spare one I had after I got done installing the new ones. Still need to take splash guard off bottom and make sure I don't see any pink traces anywhere before I'm out of the 36k warranty, coolant hasn't dropped anymore since last service, so I'm hoping no problems.

Handy, I'm sure, but in many areas, bikes are best transported inside the car. The sportwagens, both my '09 and now the '15, have a large door opening so I can get each of my bikes inside with the front wheel on. When done carefully with the front wheels off, I can get both my bike and my wife's bike in the car. They remain clean and much more difficult to steal. Good info if you've never tried it. Now for the kayak, however, . . .

I've got one very similar to yours by a different brand. I didn't use the cable concealers and mounted it up closer to the headliner. Mine is mounted with a clear view like yours as well. People rarely notice it. Two people that I know of in the past two or three years. A gate guard at a military base that probably wouldn't have noticed it if my traffic antenna wasn't attached to the windshield next to the cam, and one other random guy at a rest area. I've driven through that same gate security several times before with no guard noticing, including the guard that finally did. They're not allowed on base so the guards are actively looking for them.
