    Can this be done on a 07MY car?

    Cornering Lights via Front Fog Lights or would i need a new CECM

    I think ive seen Seats and VWs the same age with it.

    Would be a nice mod as i think it looks a treat!

    Well if it helps at all i've had it activated in VCDS on my car but it's a 61 plate. As long as headlights are on the independant fog will light up according to the steering angle. Not sure if it activates when indicating before actually turning, don't think it does.

    It wont work on earlier cars, facelifts with the newer CE board can be coded to work yes.

    Sorry I don't know as Trups did mine. It was one of the options and seemed very straight forward along with LED tail lights on with LED DRLs, gauges to light up, not just needles on ignition, tear drop sweep of rear wiper.

    Ref newer CE on mid 08 onwards cars:

    I have researched the new CE fitment to a prefacelift car, it is a massive job, 1 I have made spreadsheets for & still working out if its possible overall, the wiring involved is vast with 150 wires alone to change over along with merging the ce with the conv module, I plan to do at some point if I have time as it would take a week & would be based on a test run not permanent at 1st, massive job.

    Could you email me an autoscan of your car Ryan please, as I have even facelift modules on my car, so why mine didnt work is strange.

    I'm too faint hearted for that lol, unless the new model uses an upgraded version of the newer CE. :think:
