    Any thoughts if the centre drl was disabled on the 2019 gig.

    Well, looks like VW Australia has managed to con their customers yet again. They have actually removed "Dynamic Cornering Lights" from the GTI and left it for the R only. Headlights are not mentioned anywhere on the VW website to prevent customers from even thinking about the headlights during their purchase. You can only find this out by downloading the GTI/R specifications brochure. You have been conned. Sorry.

    See my previous post. You cannot get it to work as the new GTI does no longer sport the "Dynamic cornering lights"

    No DSG farts, no dynamic cornering lights. What else!

    Are you 100% on this as the R-Design TSI in Malaysia has the functioning LED inner DRL.

    I have tried inspecting the lights in mine but near impossible to be sure whether there are actual LED in the inner part of the headlight.

    I think you can enable through obd11

    @coolbeans11: Hi. I strongly suspect that @Kachingg advice is more wishful hoping than actual reality!! Fact is that ALL VW models (regardless of whether it's an Alltrack, or Golf) are built with just the correct amount of equipment and copper!! In today's commercial world of maximizing return-to-shareholder - there ain't any free goodies in these vehicles!

    So, if the inner DRLs on this car have never worked - it's far more likely that there isn't any equipment behind the inner angel-eye light-tubes.

    This happens on the Golf mk7 where the GTI has 2 x angel-eyes on each car side - but the inner-pair are blank! VW marketing says that this is a "feature" of the car, rather than a limitation. VW even call this "the GTI signature" - so something of value to be desired!!

    Please don't PM to ask questions about coding, or vehicle repairs. The better place to deal with these matters is on-line, in the forum proper. That way you get the benefit of the expertise of the wider forum! Thank you.
