Mercedes Original Equipment Head-Up Display

Head Up Display Retrofit to GLC

A regular customer of ours asked if we could retrofit the original Head-Up display into his much loved GLC. The thought of chopping a great big hole in the top of his dash filled us with dread but here at Braybrooks we love a challenge. And this one most certainly was. The entire dash was […]

VW Golf Mk7 Reversing Camera

Another existing customer that also owns a Mercedes wanted a reverse camera added to his VW Golf. Rather than “stick” a camera to the tailgate we decided to use integrated camera in a motorised handle that ‘pops out’ when reverse gear is selected. A dedicated module was installed behind the radio to allow an integrated image […]

Dynamic LED Headlamps to 2011 E Class Cabriolet (R207)

After finding us on Google, a recent customer contacted us to discuss his 2011 E class Cabriolet that had been rebuilt with all facelifted parts. Because the car didn’t ‘recognise’ these newer parts, none of the lights worked so we were commissioned to get the car and the new lights to ‘talk’ to each other. This […]

V Class Power Invertor

Mains Powered V class!

  The new V class is truly an Executive vehicle so luxury add-ons are common place on these cars. On this one we were asked to add mains powered sockets for charging laptops etc. We used black nickel face plates with USB sockets built in, to give a classy appearance and offer maximum connectivity. A […]

E Class W212 Facelift Headlamp Conversion

A little while back we had a phone call from a customer in Birmingham with an 2011 E Class that had been in a front end collision. The bodyshop had rebuilt his car using the parts from a newer 2014 car . Only the indicators and main beam headlamps would work and there were plugs […]

Much to our surprise, and his annoyance, these weren’t standard items on a car that costs more than a lot of people’s houses!! Many e-mails flowed […]
