From the video it looks like the color temp of the grille light doesn’t come close to matching that of the DRLs. That alone would drive me nuts. I thought I remember the earlier versions looking better matched.

This was the kit I was referring to. According to the seller, the design has been "improved" last month and also just plugs into the headlight. I'm still trying to get more info but think I would like to give this kit a go.

The item shown in that link photos might fit a regular facelift golf or somthing but it’s 100% not going to fit the GTI grill with those long tabs and it’s overall depth and shape.

Just installed the grille lights on my R I got from Jogon today. Install wasn’t too bad. The tedious part was trying to hide the wires and using zip ties to secure them in certain places. I’ve read mixed reviews about the quality, so I hope these are fine 🤞🏼

Also, might tint them a little bit later on, but I want to see if they last awhile first haha.

I still haven’t done mine. Had them For months. Can you show how you ran the wires?
Kind of hard to get a picture of how I ran the wires because it’s mostly hidden and routed behind the grill. I took this pic and shows from where the harness is and I zip tied it and ran the wires towards the front underneath the headlight brace through a small gap and used some zip tips to hold everything in place and keep it all hidden.

Installed mine about 2 weeks ago. Install is easy as f. Cable management behind the grille. Color of the ledstrip is the same as the headlights.
