Here is another vid from the same guy. The LED dimming seems to help make the the turn signal easier to see on camera. Not sure how much difference it makes in person.

I hope they show up soon in the US.

Hmm. That sucks. I guess crossing the border combined with the recent postal workers strike, its taking a while to get there. Enjoy!

As soon as ecs starts selling the 2012 led drl headlights I'll be buying a set. I want a us spec version. I figure it won't be cheap, but I can make a decent chunk of change back by selling my bi-xenon housings to some poor halogen guy for a few hundred.

I loved them on the touareg & I feel it compliments the rear R led's. I'll be happy if this is my only mod next year.

Why are they so bright at the beginning, but then dim a few seconds later?

It seems to happen in both videos when the headlights are turned on. Or possibly parking lights setting?

Car looks unreal. Love Candy White! And those wheels are sick.
I bet you cannot wait until Wednesday... I pick up my Sportline on Tuesday. I can barely sleep. Is that sad? haha

did anything else change in the 2012 model other than the headlights and wheels?

did the interior change at all (i.e. seats, nav system, etc)?

Just got back from the dealer and took some pics. We don't take delivery until Wednesday but this should get the ball rolling. Getting the dealer to install few things including the R Tails. Enjoy!!

Ps. Gunkata couple of those are your request, I hope this helps with your decision with your LED purchase

Nice, I like the sill plates. Not that they need protecting but they "dress it up" a bit.
