In heavy snow, I used to turn my GTI headlights off and just run my fogs. Whenever it rains or snows heavy, I ran my rear fog.

I've seen rear fog switches for Golf R's. When I get my tails, I'll definitely get rear fog lights. The question is, one or two?

Pretty sure passenger side has it regardless and the driver side is the option of yes or no. Havent seen a part # for a fog and non fog passenger light.

Kinda confused here. The cars245 page for the right side inner tail (5G0945308P) says PR-8TA, which says it's without rear fog light. Does it have a rear fog after all?

I like the symmetry of both rear fogs on at once... the single one in my old A4 used to bug me since everyone used to tell me one of my rear lights was burnt out grrrrr....
In some (?) US states, it's illegal to drive with just parking lights. But yes, there's a tweak to have running lights in the rear with just DRLs in the front.

In my previous car, the parking light setting is tied to the DRL, so if the parking brake is on, it's showing parking lights (up front, this triggers side marker ambers). If the parking brake is off, the DRL shows (side marker ambers turn off, and the high beam bulbs towards the middle of the car are used in a low output mode).

Would one get pulled over for driving with parking lights? Probably not....unless you get that one cop.

This is an important point. I didn't realize this when I was first doing research and went ahead to source some LED reverse lights because they're missing from the Mk7 Euro Taillights. It cost me quite a bit of money only to realize that the FL Tail Lights already have LED reverse lights!

Luckily I was able to sell them at a small loss.

I have a question, I have a row European built gti with the bulbed tails (non led), I've ordered the tail lights and the adapter harness, do I need anything else to get the lights to work?

Please help me understand. I got lost with entire process of installing FL taillights. I have mk7 led taillights in the car with extra harness connected into bcm. As of now my car is wired and coded same way as row versions.
There is mk7.5 taillights set you can purchase from vw in Europe for 519 eur. And according to the manual (see attachment) I would have to add extra wire to bcm and code. Will this setup spare me from buying Audiamant harness in addition. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5971c2fe...0C_ENG_002.pdf

Yes, getting the kit through VW and using their wiring method would spare you the need of buying the audiamant adapters.
