My daughter lives in EK, planning on popping through on Tuesday, I will PM you and see if we can find a mutually convenient time.I have two spare kits complete with sensors and chinglish instructions. Anyone want them ? Feel free to collect from me in CLARKSTON , Glasgow. Cost - £10 donation to British Heart Foundation , Can’t be arsed posting them!
I might move mine to here. I find it doesn't always come on as soon as I'd like (i.e I think it's low enough lighting to warrant headlights but the sensor doesn't)
Works perfectly for me. Dots in glass don't affect itI might move mine to here. I find it doesn't always come on as soon as I'd like (i.e I think it's low enough lighting to warrant headlights but the sensor doesn't)
I wonder if the dots in the glass help fool the sensor into coming on a bit earlier.
Great all installed, put the sensor at the top of the windscreen, after running the cable (invisibly) up the A pillar.Works perfectly for me. Dots in glass don't affect it
Hi,I bought my kit off eBay, there are 2 versions depending on which plug you need. Early Ups use a large 17 pin connector that looks like this:

This goes into a box that controls the auto lights and has a light sensor wire that you run somewhere on the dash. You then plug the output wire into the headlamp switch that comes in the kit and it's done. The kit looks like this

On my GTI, I bought an earlier kit thinking it would be the same, but VW have changed the connector plug onto the headlight switch to a small 10 pin plug that looks like this

So I bought this kit instead

Run the light sensor to somewhere on the dash, plug it all in and away you go. All lights work exactly like they should do, including cornering fogs so no problems what-so-ever.
You need the Mk6 Golf compatible switch, VW haven't changed the switch at all over the run of the GTI.Hi,
sorry to resurect an old thread, I'm sat with the switch from my UP! Gti in my lap & some verniers. Non of the ebay kits seem to exactly match the measurements of my switch,
I see you have a Gti the same year as mine. If you still have the link could I beg you to share it please? 🙏
