Update in case anybody runs into this in the future: DON'T GO CHEAP. I really thought that these would all be the same, and I was wrong. The eBay version was completely incompatible with 2018+ cars (even though it was advertised as such) and the seller didn't speak good enough English/didn't have the coding knowledge to help. Luckily they were very nice and refunded my whole order, and I just installed the USP Motorsports harness yesterday. It is much better in terms of build quality, and the dynamic signals work now!

Thanks again to ZERO815 and the past few years of comments on here for getting me across this finish line with this pain in the ass of a project :)

It is likely it would have worked with some repinning and coding but it is hard when you don’t know the layout. Less hassle with oem because you know it will work out of the box.

Yeah, I'm sure I could have figured it out with some effort but the harness itself was pretty low-quality so I didn't feel that it was worth it. Seller gave a full refund and the RFB harness from USP Motorsports is way nicer (fabric covers on the wiring, much less extra length to stuff away, etc). For anybody considering this in the future, the RFB harness is fantastic and their coding allows for the dynamic sweeping signals without the red flashing light, which I was not expecting.

Why didn't you go with the harness ZERO815 sells?

I need help, i have oem mk7.5 euro tailights in a mk7 R. I also have dual rear fog lights.I bought a wiring harness from ali express but didn't come with coding instructions. Lights work normally like "plug and play with no coding

Pic of fixed tailight after body shop chopped the plug instead of de pinning

MK7.5 OEM LED Tails on mk7 halogen

removed my old halogen rear lights (photo - old) and installed a new set of rear lights on my mk7 (photo - new),

the issue I am facing that the brake light isn't going on and off, isntead it goes high and low (as shown in the video).

\*\*the guy who installed them connected the parking lights to the brake lights, so the brake lights would work (he told me otherwise the brake bar won't work).

what I can do so I can separate the brake lights from the parking lights ,and make the brightness level of the parking lights stay the same, and make the brake lights go on/off.

Video showing how lights work:
