I have a question - because this is a September 2009 model, I think the BCM is an earlier one. I have the MFSW and have enabled the Coming home/Leaving home lights function under the Lights function for 10 seconds each. I have to pull back on the stalk to flash the headlights to make the lights stay on when I leave the car, which is fiine. How do I get them to light up when I'm walking up to the car? I have enabled it in VAGcom.

Were those R8 wheels reps? The Mk7 wheels look great, but the directional fail would drive my OCD crazy. Beautiful GTD though, I wish we had them over here in the States soo bad.

Smart, GTi mk7 alloys look better than old wheel for sure. Plus GTi exhaust make it look cleaner IMO, where did you get the Adapters from for the tail lights?

They were indeed, they were on the car when I bought it.

I thought there was a mistake when I saw the difference in direction too, and when I mentioned it to someone else, they actually asked the dealer about it!

They are a nice car but they really need a little more power from standard to match the sharpness of the looks!

They are easier to clean too!

Adapters were from ebay and cost about 40 posted.

Thanks!

Wanted them to look as factory as possible but just a little bigger.
