Cool box/fridge retro fit

Well as my car never came with the cool box I was wondering if its possible to retro fit one I've had a good search of the forum but can't really see much on this, so does anyone know if its possible, if so is it just plug and play or does a CCF need changing and if it does will the GAP IID tool be able to do this. My car is a MY2012.
Another question for those of you that have the cool box, is it actually worth having, do you use it or is just another place for putting CD's etc. Thanks.

I think it can be done, and the loom will already be there for it. In a Discovery 4 it was an option but it is easily retrofitted and plug and play so i dont see the sport being any different Thumbs Up 2003 BMW M5 - 5 Litres of V8 Optimax Slurping Goodness in Carbon Black

Thanks for the replies, Just had a look at prices and if this is the correct part No LR076833, the price seems quite reasonable, in fact a new one seems to be cheaper than some are charging for second hand units on Ebay

Well I contacted Dan and he confirmed the cool box is plug and play, part No is LR076833. So I've ordered one and will fit it when next home. Also got a slight discount on RRP.

Iā€™m sure that Dan would have checked, but there is many different models and lid variations, depending on year and VIN number, I was surprised at the different models and facilities and finishes etc.

List of most here:

I think there's only two models you need to pick from now, either LR076833 or LR075160 this seems to have superseded the previous earlier type of cooler, no need to purchase a lid it just needs transferring over.

The box doesn't come with the tray as standard either. Whistle

Most say it is purely a cooler as doesn't get temperatures low enough to make it useful, I personally haven't had that problem yet, but it only just hits 10c after being on for a couple of hours run. Drinks etc are cool enough to enjoy IMO. Leaving the tray off virtually stops it getting cool enough though. John

It's just a Peltier cooler on an uninsulated box so its performance is always going to be a bit limited really. I guess one could insulate the box which would help things stay cool for a bit longer once the engine is switched off.

I find it's a boon on long drives where you can have nice cold drinks to hand. It'll fully cool four 500ml bottles in an hour, in my experience. 2012 SDV6
