Front led light bar

I think that it need own wiring and coding, because there is a little animation or delay between front lights and the lightbar.

I activated the welcome light animation function, when you walk close to the car it will lights up smoothly ... without touch key buttons

With one word: Beautiful...
So, in your opinion, it does not fit in any other Golf?

Thanks :)

Maybe it is just couple wires going to BCM and coding can done with obd11/VCDS.
There are not instructions yet..

But if you use some time and log into https://erwin.volkswagen.de/erwin/showHome.do pay 7€ for 1 hour time.
You can see everything... for example wiring schemas and print them to pdf.
Also there are recalls and lot of information about updates and bugs...

Maybe you can find which wires go where...

Hello to all of you from Greece!
I am an owner of a Golf TDI 2.0 LIFE and I was wondering if the front LED light bar connecting the headlights that the GTI/GTD/GTE have can fit in my car.I have found this:. https://shop.ahw-shop.de/original-v...uning-frontgrill-schwarz-hochglaenzend?c=9219
but it says that it is only for the GTI/GTE/GTD...
Does someone know of this could fit to my car??

Yes the two led bars connect to the BCM and coding is necessary. But the BCM is SFD protected so you would need to unlock it and then code it.. well you need the coding too :unsure:
Also you will need the front grille with the attachment for the Led bars. Should be 5H0853651S041.
The 5H0853651AC041 that you mention above is for the Golf 8 GTE/GTI/GTD/R-Line/R because it has the attachment for the Logo.

just unplug the 2 pin connector of each of the led bar...
Have not done it so not sure if you get any errors but give it a try.

Looks amazing ! Can't wait until my VW dealer will provide the lightbar seperate...

Where is that "welcome light animation function" can't seem to find it ? (or do you need the light bar for that ? I have the iq lights)

I'm also not a huge fan of the LED lite bar, it looks a tad , well, odd to me, it can't be seen from inside the car (really ?), so am relatively unbothered. Not noticed an 'welcome animation' either, what is that all about I wonder, or is it only a feature on GTi's and the like....

I’m not a fan of the LED light bar either - I think it looks a bit tacky and not very ‘VW-like‘, but we’re all individuals so will have different likes and dislikes which is a good thing IMO. VW must think it‘s worthwhile though as it’s now a feature on some models of the newly face-lifted Polo. I can understand that some people will really like it though and think is ‘cool’ but I’m far too old to be cool! 😅.

I personally think it would have been better if the budget and resource spent on designing and developing an LED light bar - and any other similar features on the mk8 Golf - had been allocated to developing and testing more reliable and gremlin-free software 🤔.

Had make a couple of nite time trips last nite (!) and notcied as I approached the car and unlocked it, the LED bar just came on with the head lites, as in the video. Noticed a few other cars, the Seat Leon fo one, have an LED lite bar at the rear, which still look a bit odd, IMO. I know 'lites & nite' aren't how they're spelt but, hey....
