    Sportback rear LEDs - Bargain price!

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to share this with you all...

    I finally got my sportback rear LED lights!

    Made up my own loom to connect the lights up and they are working perfectly! I will take some pics tomorrow if i get the chance... I washed the car after installing the lights and then 20 minutes later it rained

    the best part... i bought them brand new from an eBay seller in Germany for £185 delivered!
    I had them priced at £180 delivered but by the time i got around to securing the deal and paying for it (a week) the currency conversion rate played against me by the extra £5 but still a great price!

    So if anyone is looking for a new set of LED rear tail lights for their sportback it from this guy... eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Thanks guys,
    Omg the rear looks a million times better now! Before there wasn't anything to look at when I was behind the car, now I just get out and walk round to see the lights

    I also did the dual led boot light and I have to say its bright in there!

    Sportbacks need coding to work, only 3 bits of coding really so not hard at all. You can get you loom from eBay I you want but I just made mine which cost me something like £15-£20 once I had bought the new connectors and extra repair pins. If you want I can make up a loom for you or just let me know and il do the whole install for you.

    Good job mate and nice find. Got my Bro'-in-law to order some as he's been on the look-out for these.

    Would you consider doing other installs? If so how much? Maybe PM me a quote.

    I have been considering doing this mod for a while now, but don't want to pay over the odds. These lights are a very attractive offer!

    Good price, the last two sets I've bought have been around £225 delivery from Germany but they did come with plug and play looms.

    Has anyone ever had a delivery time issues for these lights?

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I ordered mines roughly a week ago and they have still not arrived.

    Mine came within 5 working days.

    Have you tried contacting them via eBay email? They responded very quickly to my messages and in English!

    Thought I'd give this thread a little bump as I've just purchased some LED rears for my sportback.

    However unlike ASH I've ordered from an alternative (& slightly cheaper) seller, & also decided to order the wiring adapters rather than make my own - Simple reason being that to buy the parts to make my own adapters/convert the wiring would cost £20 + an hour of my time (& probably a lot of cursing!) I picked up the adapters for only £25.

    The links below will translate the pages to English, just give them a moment to work. Ignore the part about not shipping to the UK, he does & charges only 16.95 euros for both items. Also he speaks better English than I do German in case you need to ask any questions!

    For the LED rear lights, adapters & delivery it came to £210 in total, which in my mind is a bargain - Even if the Paypal rate was better yesterday!

    LED REAR LIGHTS:-http://www.microsofttranslator.com/B...item2315604706


    ADAPTERS:- http://www.microsofttranslator.com/B...ink%3Atop%3Ade

    A £210 box of lovelyness from Germany, only took 3 days to deliver (after I cocked up the payment) & the adapters have turned out to be Kufatec rather than some other generic brand. Looking forward to getting them fitted along with a few other external tweaks...

    Yep...same kit as mine max69vk....they'll look great when they are done!

    Can I ask a question of you though? When you have them connected up and coded, can you check to see if your High Level Brake Light is at the same intensity when lit, as before you fit them?
    After fitting my kit, my 3rd brake light is now much dimmer.....no one else has seen this problem or has an issue. Might be just my cabling but would you mind posting a reply once you've done them?
    Cheers

    Hell yeah one of the best mods, also don't forget you can code the fog light to act as a brake light too.

    Forum search is broken.
    I found this on a cached copy on google

    You need a VCDS cable. The coding is this:

    central electronics

    coding

    help with long coding

    Btye 9 to Dec = 0 - as the final brake light
    Byte 10 to Dec = 0 - Fog lamps as a taillight
    Byte 12 to Dec = 36 - dimming rear standlight
    Byte 19 Bit 2 Cold Diagnosis rear active - this must be activated

    Ask them for the model number on the lights.
    A quick Google can verify If they are the new ones.

    From '58 plate on they're standard factory fit ...although there are a few pre-facelifts on later plates, but they're rarer than rocking horse poo.
