Well done sir.
My turn to give back to the community. Recently I finished the installation of the factory RVC complete with the sexy flip up badge. I have the latest camera control module so I do get guidance lines!!
At any rate...it was a big job and I have seen folks asking all sorts of questions about this kind of install so I did this little write up to help those along who want to add this great option to their ride. Well it's a 40 page list of what you need and how to install it.

I warn you...it is a big job and a detailed write up. I hope it helps at least one person out there.

Great write up. Not sure I'd wanna tackle that job. Parking sensors will have to suffice for now.
I have the 09 Lux, and as far as I know it was the high end of options for the year( not sure if the V6 model had any more options did it?) I would have figured it would have come with the camera.
Would something like this work with RNS-315?
Very cheap and fits the license plate hole.
I realize this is not the way you did it which was all OEM. This is cheap though I just wonder if it can be hooked up to the RNS-315 somehow....

That kit looks like it uses RCA video in to the unit. There would be no way with that unit to get data onto the CANBUS to tell the NAV unit to display video. I also do not see an RCA input on rear of the RNS315 which I have found. Dunno how that video conversion would be made to get video into the unit.
I would save your money and talk to Peteski on here about a flip out OEM. I understand his guys have made some mods to the harness he has which makes it completely plug and play and you should not need to add the wires which I did for power and the trunk latches.
The camera selection is just the beginning. I installed a great set-up on my CC. I do not like the flip out emblem cam. I used a licence lamp camera similar to what you were looking at. The best 315/510 kit that I found is at www.echomaster.com/vwsolutions. It comes with the camera, wiring and image processing module. It's about 300.00 for the kit. The Dealer charged me 195.00 to install and program.
