Where to buy a badge reversing camera?

I'm looking to retrofit reversing camera to my 2012 model but i'm struggling to find the reversing camera badge part itself (im in the UK).

Does anyone have any recommendations? Anyone tried the ones available on aliexpress? e.g. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Dyna...ceBeautifyAB=0

They don't seem to show the badge (or the guidance lines in the photos of the camera in action)

Bump I’ve been looking for this info too. Lots of short threads but no clear consensus when it comes to adding a RVC.

I swapped a badge RVC into my mkv. You need to run the harnesses, but otherwise it's pretty straightforward.

In order for the guidance lines to move, a controller has to be added.

@Cal2000 Can you comment on how much that cost? Ballpark? Been trying to find a used OEM RVC but not many people are selling. The knock off are hit or miss w/electrical gremlins in my experience, so I think OEM makes sense too.

I have been thinking about just using the RVC from my SportWagen, but not sure I want to jimmy up the mounting. Badge kit would be much nicer. Hoping to find an affordable used one.

Also is anyone interested in doing a Group Buy? I would be happy to organize if I can find a vendor who would give a great group price. DM me if you're interested.

I got mine from Deutsche Autoparts; https://www.shopdap.com/make-model-y...69-aq-ulm.html

Not cheap but I wanted the OEM parts. Installation @ a local VW speciality shop took 4 hours; you can estimate installation cost accordingly...
