Took a picture of the light, copied the shape, scaled, printed out, made few corrections, double-checked with masking tape. Looks OK to me. Here's what I got.
Sharing PDF with the template.

Wondering how bright are these lights when it's dark? I drive in the night quite often and I'm a bit worried these might be a bit too bright.
But I'm very tempted :-D

To me, they do what they're supposed to do. Even at night, I notice them peripherally, or as I'm looking to change, but they don't otherwise bother me. And it's not like they're on all the time.

If they really bother you, there's always the option to turn them off via the MIB display as well.

...and if you replace radars with 2Q0, you will get brightness adjustment option.

I was thinking about doing this. Wonder if 2q0s, with the 2q0 lane assist camera would get the lane change assistance.

Only diy I could find was for a variant, so he didn't use the golf 8 brackets.

Finished passenger side today. Happy with the result.
Was able to mount the light without glueing it permanently. Instead I glued two additional holders that the light snaps into.
Also added bit of isolation tape to make sure that it won't rattle.

Now that is artistry right there. That cut is as clean as the manufactured ones

And not off to do the drivers side.

Perfect! Looks like original (y)
How did you connect it? Do both lights go on? The one in glass is not really visible in the sun.

Disconnected the small one, so the small LED is off permanently.
I would not be able to use them anyway, since I want to fit Passat/Arteon mirror inserts. There was an option of anti-glaze mirrors on those cars and it will work in MK7 if you wire those inserts to the rear-view mirror.
