Finished installing these this weekend and they're just too cool. I was surprised at how bright the amber is, but I feel like the brake LED brightness could be a bit higher. Overall these are one of the best upgrades I've done to the car.

I've got the DAP harness and mine sweep when it's parked, if you're referring to the left and right blinker controls.

Also if I'm unlocking/locking the car they do different things depending on the action (and what the previous action was), but part of it does trigger a sweep and it seems a little quicker than the turn signals go.

I also had to shave down a brown connector on my car, for me it was the driver side inner. Kind of annoying as the directions don't really mention it and neither does the video from what I recall.

Sorry if this has been covered...I own a 2015 golf R and a little confused with the whole wiring harness thing.

"If you already have the MK7 OEM LED tails and a harness from DAP/BEC/etc, these will not work with the new tails as the connectors have changed. You will need a new harness found below."

if I'm understanding correctly, if I buy a harness from DAP then it won't work with these tail lights but according to the first post, I will need a DAP harness...unless the new DAP harness has the new upgraded connector for these tail lights?

There's a harness for Mk7 tail lights and a harness for Mk7.5 (facelift) tail lights. Make sure you get the latter, as the former won't work.

Then there's also the mk7.5 light harness for the mk7's vs the mk7.5 light harness for the mk7.5s haha

Not confusing at all if you've read the last 100 or so pages though

So I got a set of the Chinese MK7.5s for a pretty good price. Uses an unknown cheap harness, but i believe would still work.

Heres the link to what they look like.

Any one have luck with these and coding?

Finally got my set, but a couple lights came broken. One was chipped and another had a plastic tab that was broken off.

Contacted e-acca, hopefully this will be a painless process to get a replacement.
