Retrofitting footwell lights 6C

I have a 2017 6C GTI and would like to fit footwell lights, how hard is this to complete?

I've used the search function but there doesn't seem to be any guides.

Btw I don't own a VCDS cable.

Re: New member: Jasper's Red Polo 6R from Belgium

It looks great Jasper :)

Have you considered fitting a GTI rear bumper and dual exhaust tips, that would make the rear stand out.

Re: Polo GTi 1.8 Cruise Retrofit

My Australian 2017 GTI came standard with cruise control (also Car Play etc), so it seems different markets choose the options they think they can sell.

I’m assuming these photo’s were taken over time as some have the whip antenna and other photo’s have the shark fin.

Re: Changing Steering Wheel on VW polo (s) 6r 2012

yes you can replace it, but it will require a new (different) airbag. Thanks for the reply, Is this air bag I need?

Re: Arm Rest

I think it does. There are other threads on the 6r/6c board where members have retro-fitted this armrest - suggest you use the search facility and you should be able to find them, which should also confirm whether or not it would fit the 6c GTI. If your car’s a manual, bear in mind that when the ar...

Re: Arm Rest

I didn't know the arm rest was an option in some countries, it's standard here in Australia.

However the LED headlights are an option here, I'd happily sacrifice my arm rest for the better headlights, I have the very un-exciting halogens in my new (2017) GTI.

I'm loving those headlights as my GTI only has the Halogens, and my Polo is black too, looks great, congratulations on all your mods :)

6C Halogen to LED Headlight Adaptor

Hi all, My 2017 GTI (Gold Coast/Australia) came with halogen headlights, I want to upgrade to OEM LED headlights. Has anyone purchased these adaptors: http://www.carsystems.pl/full-led-headlights-adapter-vw-polo-6c,id2162.html What coding would be needed? Btw I don’t have VCDS, so I’d need either bu...
