Yes on the door strips. They come on at full brightness in the dark but are off during the day. I wondered if they could just be on full time?

I will look into this for you but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't see the blue strip in the day 


Try put your beams on during the day and see if you can see the strip

Thanks for the input. 
Is there a rear brake light mod for the facelift ... similar to the Mk 7 ... so that the inner lights show the brake light as well ?

The Five brake light mod that works on the 7 also works on the Facelift.


If the rears are used as DRLs the 2 won’t work together

I’ve got the rears as DRLs and the brake lights are the 6 squares on the outside.
