    OSRAM LED sequential dynamic mirror indicators

    Thanks to @nermal for bringing this to my attention in the Arteon section of the forum! Sequential side indicators (vwwatercooled.com.au)

    I thought I'd post my findings here in the Passat B8 section too.

    There are many cheap options on aliexpress which may or may not be good quality for $20-30 delivered, but given that these are exposed to the elements and UV, I was happy to spend a bit extra and order the OSRAM version for $120 delivered via Amazon:

    Installation took about half an hour thanks to nermal's tips. There are plenty of installation videos out there on youtube which I found useful.

    I also purchased some suction cups to make the job of removing the mirror glass even easier as per the above video:

    The build quality of the OSRAM item is excellent - truly OEM quality or better. Perfect fitment, plug and play.

    I never noticed how dim the original items were until I compared them back to back with the OSRAM replacements.

    Below is a short video showing the difference in brightness and the dynamic scrolling effect (excuse the grotty car):

    And some photos:

    Comparison (original on driver's side and OSRAM installed on passenger side) - you can see how the intensity of the OSRAM mirror LED is a very good match for the front headlight indicator sections, whilst the original mirror LED is significantly dimmer in comparison:

    Cheers for this, I saw them a few months back but lost interest as they were very expensive at the time. Which ones did you order from that Amazon link? Looks like we need the ones to suit:

    VW Golf VIII (2020-)
    VW Passat B8 (2015 -)
    VW Arteon (2017 -)

    Not seeing that on the link.

    You are correct. Unfortunately it appears that the 3G0 model has now sold out on Amazon. I also posted the info on a Facebook Passat page and there was a bit of interest there. Bugger!!
