Place for retrofits

Can anyone recommend a company or person who does retrofit work on our cars? Usually I'd be happy to do the work myself but with working 80 hour weeks, 700 miles of travel and lack of a driveway (or any place to park outside of the work digs) I'm left parking my car around the corner in a local sainsburys.

I've had a quick look on Google but nothing really comes up. I've also asked a few local garages also who are unable to help. I'm basically wanting a heated steering wheel and HUD with road sign detection fitted. I've no issue sourcing the parts if need be just havent got a place to fit them or a laptop to code.

Any suggestions would be great thanks

I would say contact Vorph, however he is based in Southampton and I notice you are in Newcastle.

If you're in NE, @R99 might be able to point you in the right direction.

Thanks I'll send them a message. Newcastle is home but work in London (live in Hertfordshire while at work) so I'm happy to go anywhere in England really

Vorph AKA Bavarian Coding (facebook/instagram) would be my go-to

Heard of Vorph aka Simon @ Bavarian coding - got quite a good reputation

Also heard good things about Jason who I believe is Redditch based.

Funnily enough Simon has just retrofitted a HUD into his own car.

Have you his number? I lost my contacts. That's why I didn't get around to uploading it.
