What’s the difference between right and left hand fitment? The reversing/rear fog light maybe?

I think it’s the fog light - looking at this YouTube video of a LHD mk8 Golf R, it has two reversing lights (21 sec into the video) but just the one fog light fog light - left hand side; illuminated at around 27 seconds into the video.

there are 2 reversing lights on the car so its not that. Possibly the fog light yes.

Finally got around to getting these (RHD version), I think they look very well on white, delighted with them!

That looks really good, they will definitely be colour sensitive but white/black are the best suit

I originally said that, but since seeing them I’ve been trying to decide whether or not they’d suit kings red to brake up the colour up a bit.

Thanks for the comments!

I think they would work well with nearly all colours to be honest, they make a great contrast.
