« on: October 03, 2015, 08:26:26 AM »
I'm looking for a set of inner rear lights as my DIY attempt has failed.

Anyone have any?

I noticed part of the edge has split, maybe just not enough bond. Couldn't be bothered doing s half assed job again!

Si, when are they due? I'd be keen to hear the outcome.

Swap should be achievable and fairly straight forward. Several people on here (inc me) have swapped our inner rear fog red lens for a clear to match the reverse for a bit of symmetry.

Cool,  I've done it 3 times with the valeos,  but fed up of led clusters burning out,  but didn't know if you could do with standard R32 lights

I just bought 2 new inners from VW...... Gulp! Also had the wrong part numbers so had to swap lenses as they were LHD. Easy to swap with needle nose plyers though

£145 for the 2. Nearly fell over but cant find them cheap anywhere apart from the above. I remember when a new full set was only £180 off ebay.

Si, when are they due? I'd be keen to hear the outcome.

Just received the fog yesterday hopefully reverse today, made by Magneti Marelli as were the 2 outer units i bought from a UK supplier, all made in Poland as are the Valeo and Hella units so i would imagine they would all be made by same people.

Nothing wrong with light at all, cheery red all ok, as others have said easy to change the red and white lenses over to make it right for the UK so in all got a whole brand new set of cheery reds (wish i hadn't had sold my OEM's) for approx £180 well worth the scour on ebay

Loads of extra's and retro fits.

Excellent news, thanks Si.

My outer units are also Magnetti Marelli (bought from ECP), so these sound like they are part of the same range. Not sure why ECP don’t do the inners.

I paid £45 each for my outers, so effectively that’s a brand new genuine set for circa £160!

Let me know when you get the rears swapped.
