    Running a cable to the back is not too difficult. Just remember to remove all the tabs that state airbag first as some of them have a torx screw behind them.

    Dynamic parking line handle camera VW PQ or MQB Passat Jetta Tiguan RCD330 plus | eBay

    This is the camera I got, got the RCD330 from the same guy with the K0 series canbus as a package to save on shipping. Has yellow lines that move with steering. Seems good enough for day to day, as some one said I not going to be shooting the next blockbuster on it.
    Can you be a more specific about those Airbag tags? Not sure which location they suppose to be in.

    Thanks for the car head unit link though those cameras (according to the description) will not fit my car/head unit. They're priced quite reasonably but I think the RCD510 requires RGB format for the rear view camera.

    But even with 510 I don't have a camera installed so this capability (for now) is being wasted. The rear (pop up) cameras are still fetching around A$200 plus I'd probably be looking at getting the wireless sender so I don't have to run wires all the way to the front of the car. I think some kind of video converter is also needed for this to work wirelessly so it all adds up.
    Dont try and waste youre time with wireless. Had this version:
