    As far as the interior mirror, when I did my A5 camera retrofit (on a GTI with the 3Q0 facelift camera, mind you, so this may not apply completely) I didn't want to put the auto-dimming mirror at the time. so instead, I used a standard mirror (Part# 3G0-857-511-N-9B9) with the Rain-Light sensor mount and it fits rather well in the camera mount.

    However, as darkchina said, if it is the 5Q0 camera, it is a whole different mirror.

    If you are curious about the MK100 ABS controller's Bits and Bytes >>MK100 ABS Coding (Google Drive)<< NOT 100% ACCURATE, INFORMATION ONLY

    Yes I can see that for the Golf. The mirrors for Leon seem to be the same either with or without the A5. Only some plastic caps and trim changes.

    I would say you can use your existing auto-dimming interior mirror with the A5 camera windscreen mount without a worry. Did a A5 retrofit to a B8 and the old mirror fit without issues, just changed the plastic caps.

    So I'm waiting for all the parts (windscreen, harness, camera) to arrive for the A5 retrofit and yesterday I was playing with the coding. Should I be looking to something more than the famous XaGiCo pdf? I saw some differences in the adaptation channels between the pdf and my system which is production of late 2018.

    Also I think I'm getting a brand new camera. What are the steps I should take? Coding with VCDS, parametrization with the "other tool" and then calibration?

    I will be building VAS6430 on my own since I got a friend with a printing shop and then I'm taking it to a specialist with ODIS. Is there something I should have in mind? I have read all workshop manual instructions regarding distancing etc but I don't know if the calibration should take place in both daylight and night.

    Enough if you calibrate it at normal room lighting. They don’t calibrate that for both in workshop either.

    You can get the VAS boards printed from Aliexpress as well. The front camera cal board was around 50€

    Yeah I saw the boards at Aliexpress but god knows when it's coming from china to greece. Plus my friend will do it for free.

    I also talked to that specialist about next steps with ACC and if I understood correctly he may be able to purchase some FeC codes. Is that a thing or is he just going to get to those "hacker" guys who I have already spoken to?

    the FeC code for ACC cannot be obtained officially. we are still not sure how those "hackers" do it, best guess is they clone it from a VIN who had it from the factory. there are chances you'll lose the FeC if you bring the car to a dealer for service and they do some advanced stuff with ODIS. it's your choice.
    my Golf left the factory with 18 ECUs. now she has 27. and counting

    I’ve seen some of these specialist selling developer keys. If you have bad luck and you get blacklisted key, your car VIN might get banned from mothership server which means no CP nor IMMO jobs for that VIN anymore in the future.

    I will have to check back with the guy to get a better understanding of what he means. That's way too risky.

    So this ACC retrofit has made me feel like a criminal searching and talking to all those underground guys who ask for crazy money. I have a 3Q camera with trim and new windscreen on the way. If I understand correctly the round radar with only CP is not an option, right?
