I have a 2018 Golf R and I’m looking to add blind spot monitoring to it. Is this something that is possible? If so where can I start?

You sure can. The parts can be had pretty cheap. The wires for the LEDs in the mirrors is a pain in the ass. Coding is pretty easy. I got the parts when i did the retrofit on Aliexpress. Install took a couple of hours. Alot of people say it is a pointless retrofit, but i do alot of highway driving and i find it usefull

Search this on aliexpress. I'm on mobile and can't seem to copy links.

Also kufatec has retrofits but they are more expensive

Probably not. Ive never gotten instruction with anything ive ever ordered from aliexpress. Most of the info you need can be found in forum posts. The wiring is pretty easy for side assist. Just power, ground, canbus, and the LEDs for the mirrors. Not terribly difficult as far as wiring. Running the wires is a pain in the ass though.

Thank you for the info. Happy new year!
