    Original (Left) ; Face Lift (Right)

    Effectively the indicator and rear reflector positions are reversed, resulting in a much narrower indicator on the facelift.

    LED tubes added around the Brake Lights bulbs, and also added into the fog-lamp/ reverse light section too.

    A very subtle change in daylight, far more noticeable at night as the other postings show.

    You'll be fine to do the above, the outer clusters will function if I remember correctly along with brakelights, enough to drive to the garage for sure.

    I see that on the kufatec website the wiring looms are not compatible with RHD-is that true?

    I am having an issue with lights working but the reverse lights don't work at all, does the coding enable this as the vag com couldn't open up bytes 8 onwards so cant code? its full vagcom/vcds as well.

    And in that pic one wire is missing...
