The picture they have is of the original VW packaging, but could also just be stock photo.

Let us know what you find out. I'm down for saving $60+ if they are legit OEM.

Nevermind, I just tried to buy the All4VAG ones and the only shipping option it gives me is $119 (+$505 for the tails = $623 total). I guess free shipping is only within Spain. Knew it was too good to be true.

I'll just order from E-Acca.

Let me know how much the shipping is to Canada from E-Acca.



In my email to them I've also asked for a shipping quote to Southern Ontario

You are right, shipping is added on the last page. Just ordered from E-Acca for $565 and harness from dap. I am curious if included oem harness can be repurposed and converted into dap harness.

Yes, I've seen a few ppl on this forum do the conversion on 2018 (Mk7.5) GTI already.

Forum member ZERO815 makes a fantastic quality harness for Mk7.5 to Mk7.5 dynamic tails, along with excellent coding instructions.

All4VAG sent me a 5% discount code as incentive to complete my order that I didn't finish. Final price is still $597USD though. Judging from E-Acca price to Seattle and SoCal being ~$565 shipped, I think it should be about the same to Ontario (shorter distance) - which would still make E-Acca cheaper as well as safer because of many sets sold already with happy customers.

I'll try to place order tonight from E-Acca to get exact shipping amount.

Built-in, and they're bright enough

The reverse bulbs are super bright IMO. You won't need to replace them.

Not sure which one your question is for.

Example post of a 2018 NAR in this forum (though it's with a JBale harness, which is no longer being made): https://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?p=542236

ZERO815 is on this forum

I second this! I am currently running the ZERO815 harness on my MK7.5.

Is everybody getting the ones with the rear fogs? I'm looking into getting a set and was wondering if the rear fogs require more coding and if they're really worth it or not? I haven't looked up any prices yet so I honestly don't even know if they're more expensive, so sorry for the ignorance. Ha.

If you want to add rear fogs your GTI sport will need a light switch also.The harness will be slightly different to accommodate the coding.
