So both versions are amber turn signals? Also do you mind posting a link to the German forum, not having any luck finding it.

Thanks for posting that! Looking at the connectors from the ones currently on Ebay and the ones you posted, it looks as if the connectors are in fact different.

There will be a harness made in no time for the non dynamic turn signal versions and I'm sure you could source the parts pretty easily. The new Passat facelift tail lights look like they use similar connectors, if not the same one, so its just a matter of taking the plunge and testing it out.

Looks like we might need to wait for DAP or someone to make an adapter again.. definitely interested, I think these look better than the current OEM LED tails IMO. I was hoping to get a jump on this but it looks like I might be a little too early haha

No problem at all! I'm also hoping there will be some extension to make this work on the non facelift models.

Yes, friend of mine works at the dealership and it's from the 7.5 Highline with the dynamic turn signals.

I actually really like the dynamic tails. The original Mk7 leds look ok but not $900 ok. These on the other hand might be worth it! I wonder if MY15 cars will allow retrofits of dynamic turns!

Just saw that. The prices totaled to 405.72 Euros (w/o shipping) for the 4 pieces.

It's actually not bad, though the pieces have this description: “Neu mit Lagerspuren, Schmutz und leichte Kratzer können vorhanden sein.”

Per google translate "New with bearing tracks, dirt and slight scratches can be present."

They can be had for less than that. You can buy the European OEM LED tail lights for 400-500$, then pick up a set of BEC adapter harness for another $100~

I got mine for $525 with the harness from BEC (Euro cherry, not the chinese cherry red) . My set had some blemishes from shipping which is why it was slightly cheaper, but it isn't really noticeable and can be polished until perfect. http://i.imgur.com/VukGBDg.jpg

Two of the lights look new. One of them (I think the right outer) has a chip on the corner and a scratch down the middle of the lense. One of the other ones has a small nick in them, not the end of the world. I think it's a good price, but considering I haven't even hit my first oil change yet, I'm hesitant to get these.. I find it pretty difficult to scratch/damage rear lights unless in an accident so I wouldn't mind paying for new ones. Headlights are a different story considering all the debris that hits them over time. Then again we need an adapter!

Yep! I'd at least wait for someone else to retrofit it before jumping the gun. Save you all the trouble he may or may not have

Regardless, it wouldn't cost you $900 lol. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VW-Golf-7-R-...gAAOSwrklVRLfn

$450 USD + $50 shipping. Add another $100~ish for the adapter harness from BEC, DAP or whichever.

I'm contemplating buying the OEM Euro LED tails for my 16... now hmmm maybe I'll just wait and see if a harness is produced soon and everything works out well with the facelifted tail lights. B/c that sequential led turn signal is so clean looking... I love the look on the new A4.

If these are already fitted to an MK7, is it the same install as the Euro mk7 tails?

Edit: it looks like the DAP adapters would fit the new tails... I'm wondering if it's that easy in that it's the same process as the mk7 Euro tails

This: https://www.audiamant.de/shop-nachru...ule-golf7-html and some coding is required and you also have to already have a LED tails. The dynamic turn signal ones are tinted like the current tails from the R. Don't hesitate to ask anything else I'll be happy to help.
