Brake lights are just on outers I think. Never really taken much notice to be honest  :grin:

After plucking up some more courage (using the excellent stickies on VWROC forum) have been using the OBD dongle so now have:

Stop/start disabled (yippee!!)
5x brake lights
Headlamp washers off
Fan level display on auto
DRL 75% with headlights

The car hasn't started up and driven off on its own after tinkering so good result!  :laugh:

Welcome to the slippery slope!

Dipping DRL with indicators??

True dat.

Full brake lights are much brighter.

Yes standard is just the outer brake light.  5x brake light obdeleven/vcds mod enables the inner leds too. Looks much better and how it should have been from factory imo.
