LEDs for the people!

Audi made LED DRLs popular and since many have jumped in the bandwagon with weird and tacky looking LEDs. For 2011 VW added LED Daytime Running Lamps to the Touareg and for 2012 6 more cars will get them:

– 2012 EOS

– 2012 Golf TDI

– 2012 GTI

– 2012 Golf R

-2012 Tiguan SEL

-2012 Beetle Turbo

Look for these built in christmas lights to show up in cars around July of this year.

  1. Will they work as a direct swap for my MK6 Jetta? I’d definitely like to have them on my car if I can.

  2. Not sure at this point.

  3. LED fever. When will it end?

  4. Do we know if the 2012 GTI will gain the same EU dual-zone Climatronic system as found on the 2012 R? I’m seriously considering a GTI purchase this summer, but I’ve been holding out for the 2012 model in hopes of gaining LED DRLs, LED taillights, and a Climatronic setup. One criteria down, two to confirm…

  5. there wont be LED taillights or climatronic

    • Re: No LED taillights or Climatronic.. That’s a shame, considering the recent photos showing off the 2012 Jetta GLI’s Climatronic controls. I was hoping we could take that as a sign of things to come for the GTI. Any word on new wheels for 2012?

  6. Any love for the new Passat or CC regarding LEDs?

    • I just stumbled upon this thread regarding 2012 Canadian GTI information. Any chance we will see similar option changes for the US? (Keeping my fingers crossed for the 18″ ‘Serron’ wheel package, the same wheels found on the overseas “Adidas Edition” GTI. Also, the 2012 Canada order form lists Climatronic dual-zone climate control…)

  7. Jetta/GLI late to the game as usually LOL 2020 is when the jetta will get them

  8. I noticed you took the time to capitalize “July” and used lower case c for “Christmas” What’s up with that?

  9. wow, that officially just adds the icing to the cake for me buying a GTI this summer. I can’t wait!

  10. How about the CC no LED’s DRL with Bi Xenon?

  11. Any knowledge of whether or not one will have to buy the Autobahn package to get Xenon headlamps?

  12. For 2012 that is.

    • i’m betting they’ll keep the LED daylight running lights to the autobahn pack and the Xenon headlights to the package just below the autobahn package

  13. Autobahn package for the golf tdi?

  14. Just tried to order a 2012 Eos Executive from a local dealer and was informed the Tech package w/Xenon and LED’s is not available from the factory until June. Odd they can get the 2012 Eos’ over here but none are with the Tech package in all the brochures.

  15. VW decided late in the game to give us the xenons thats why there is a delay
