I have not seen the LEDs here, so I thought what the heck. Here are some photos of my Blue Graphite Metallic with the R Tinted LED. 2010 Golf TDI, build date 3/2010. Everything works, but I have the bulb out warnings and the light. Tomorrow morning I will meet a friend with VAG-COM to try 1F for the new code.

You win for OEM plus Golf. Euro lights, bluetooth, and LED taillights!
I think I have a couple of the nicer little tweaks, but there are guys going way beyond what I have done. I have seen the same, but also with Katzkin leather seats, under seat drawers, dash cubby, chrome trimmed window switches, chrome glovebox handle, coilover suspension, new wider wheels, etc., etc, etc. A few years from now I may try some of the things listed above, but for me I think I am satisfied for now. The bluetooth seemed mandatory and the lights are just so sexy I couldn't resist.


It looks very subtle but unique. Where did you find them?
The lights were purchased from ECS Tuning. Mine are the R Tinted without rear fog, but they have both tinted and cherry and with or without rear fogs. Adding the rear fog to a US car is more involved. The non-fog version is plug and play, except there is coding change required to get rid of bulb out errors. You need lights and the the adapter wires, info below.

Yes I've seen that clip on YouTube but thats just the replacement which isn't rocket science not coding it. ;)

I am lucky that I found a friend on these forums that is a whiz at coding. He did what was described in the DIY thread posted above. For my US car, build date 3/2010, using LEDs without rear fog, I was told that Byte 18 in Cent. Elect. Module #9 should be changed from 00 to 1F. The change required copying and pasting the full code with Byte 18 changed. Just as explained in the DIY, Byte 18 could not be modified by itself. After the change, all the faults disappeared. The lights worked fine before the change, but I had bulb out faults on the MFD and the indicator was illuminated on the tach. Now everything is fine.
