Default led dynamic tail lights

Has anyone found any of these nifty tail lights of decent quality at a reasonable price, 300-400?

Ed's is about the best I've found. Not in your price range, mind you - but top-notch seller.

These looks amazing! I think I may just have to pick up a pair.

Edit: I usually don't impulse buy, but I just ordered a pair!

My experience with Ed has been fantastic - I'm sure you'll love 'em!
(I'd have a set myself, but - and he confirmed that he's tried to fit them - sadly, they do not fit the Mk7 Sportwagen. )

If you find some cool ones with yellow turn signal, preferably sequential, I'm listening.

Also, new Chevy's have a high mojnt brake light that quickly flashes three times when the brakes are applied. The lower lights do not flash - only the high mount light does this. I wonder if that's am easy install. Anyone else notice and want it?

Is that something that can be changed in VCDS?
I know you can enable the emergency flashing, but feel this is in there somewhere too. I'd definitely like that.

DV52, are you there? Paging DV52...
(He's the wizard of all things to do with the "Central Convenience" module and fiddling with the lights in particular).

Edit:
Dug out his über-thorough Excel sheet of ALL the lighting functions (a mere 2385 adaptation channels) in the car that he compiled. He put it together to compare the function of each light (and thus setting) across the VW's various markets (e.g., NAR, RoW, Australia (he's Australian), etc.).

All of which is pre-amble to: Within VCDS - Central Convenience (9) - Adaptations (you probably have to enter the "security access" code first...I think it's 20103 - either that or 31347), and then do a search for Leuchte22BR MA57 - that's the third brake light...i'd think that if that mod was possible, this is where it'd be configurable.

(And puh-leeeze...make a backup of your adaptation channels and log your changes, just in case...)

Received the lights today from BEC, didn't realize I would have to run a little wiring from each connector up through the paneling. No big deal, but need a half day to install now, so hopefully next weekend I'll have enough time for this!

Did the harnesses come with the lights or were they extra cost?

Why spend $500+ on something that you, as the driver of the car, will NEVER SEE?

Why does the multi-zillion-dollar women's cosmetics business exist...?
