Updated BCM or Not?
« on: 04 September 2013, 06:41 »
Looking to fit the LED rears to my Mk6 GTI when it is collected next week. It's an 09 model, so will I have to upgrade the BCM to a later version to get all bulb warnings clear, or will it all clear once coded via VCDS?

Thanks

Aaron

You can buy the LED connectors ready made online.

My 59 plate did not require a new bcm module.

I followed that guide when fitting mine, but when it came to coding, I lost my DRL's. I've not had chance to get to the bottom of trying other suggested codings yet.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

My 59 plate gtd's bcm would've needed updated if I'd went with oem LEDs.
That's why I went aftermarket

Oh really, who makes them online?

I'll probably just go for it and if it needs the updated unit, i'll have to get it. Working for VW has its perks when owning one!

I purchased a kit from here and it just needed recoding:

http://www.carsystems.pl/golf-mk6-r20-led-taillights-for-uk-and-rhd-market-adapter-5k0945093ag-5k0945094ag,id384.html

You could pick the adapters up individually from that site or ebay etc.

Wait until you've tried recoding before purchasing a bcm.

Ok brilliant cheers! And they are genuine lights?
