Your modified image is fine.The original image was a testing phase for BCMs non-Max.

Your reference should be the image for Bluemotion ... because in your case it is also necessary to modify the electrical installation for fog lights (without BCM control) due to the static cornering lights (SCLs), in the case you want the SCLs in the headlamps.
SCLs in bixenon headlamps is a lot of better than in foglamps.

Thank you very much ciclo.

I have checked the connection of my BCM and everything is clear.
After this check I can also assert that in my BCM there are not original wires in T73B/3 and T73A/5 (despite what showed in the bluemotion picture) probably due to the fact bluemotion that this is a different wiring which includes DRL.

Anyway will keep you updated with this project. :wink:

There are five different ways to connect the DRLs in the 6R depending on the equipments.😂

The original way from your 6R is without BCM control.

Yea, I supposed that. It's completely a mess :lol: Thanks ciclo :wink:

Well guys, I spent the last few days to retrofit headlight washers and washer level sensor.

I post some pictures of the process. 8)

All the material we need.

Thank you very much guys. :wink: I hope those pictures may help someone else.

In the meantime I am looking for retrofitting the AFS; I have just started looking under the car and I noticed I have to replace the bracket for mounting sensors.

Here you see a comparison between mine (left) and right one from iichel (thank you for the picture).

An accident along an access ramp to a parking lot.. :cry:

The brake line holder has the part number 6R0 612 405.
I have an AFS unit for sale for Bi-Xenon headlights, if you're looking for one that works... :)
Looks like you're still driving with H7 halogen headlights however?

Thank you iichel, I'll order the bracket 6R0 612 405 at my dealer so I can continue with the retrofit :!:

I already have an AFS unit.. honestly I do not know If It works because It's an used one.. If It wont I'll let you know, thanks. :wink:

Yes, I am actually still driving with halogen headlights because of I want to retrofit bixenon together with AFS to avoid any problems with law. :roll:

Hi guys, any suggestions how can I test if leds of my xenon headlights work without connecting the headlights to the car?

I would also check the LED lights color for choosing the D3S lamps with closer temperature.

Keep in mind that the videos or photos do not show the real performance.

It is difficult or impossible to achieve the same color/temperature. (xenon vs LED module)

In the next weeks I will test these ones:
Cool Blue https://www.lichtex.de/en/osram-d3s-663 ... /a-663405/

---

Original https://www.lichtex.de/en/osram-d3s-663 ... /a-663404/

Cool Blue https://www.lichtex.de/en/osram-d3s-663 ... /a-663405/

Night Breaker https://www.lichtex.de/en/osram-d3s-663 ... /a-663407/

---
IMHO the Night Breaker are the best in terms of performance, but the Cool Blue can add that point of aesthetics without sacrificing too much performance.
(watch the previous great video to the end)

Thanks ciclo for those very interesting links.

CBI looks a good compromise and I am thinking to purchase them.
I have also seen positive reviews about philips bulbs but they are more expensive. What do you think about them?

Update

Just finished last mod inspired by ciclo. :roll:
Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures.

A little question for ciclo: I saw a picture of your MFA+ which show the cc logo. Did you code somethin for that? My MFA+ does not show it.

I have no experience with philips lamps, sorry.
Tomorrow I receive the OSRAM CBI. I don't know when they will be installed (asap).

Nice last mod. :wink:

To get the Cruise Control Displayed in MFD (GRA_High) it's necessary to modify the ECU file. Read from here... viewtopic.php?f=56&t=58703&start=4635#p546835

Please ciclo let me know as far as you try CBI your impressions because I am very interested in for the purchase. :roll:

Dear mate I've just read last pages of your thread.. you did a great job and I would thank you for sharing it with the community (not only with the ECU of course but with all improvements on your Polo) which had been an precious inspiration/advice/help for me and many other people :!: :!: So thank you again for all! :wink:

Moved by enthusiasm I checked my ECU but all the autoscans give me the message "engine cannot be reached" (motor is running and doors unlocked).
I have no idea how to solve the problem and any suggestions is much appreciated.

Anyway I could retrieve an old autocan I did (the only one with my ECU successfully autoscanned) and I post it below.
Again unufortunatelly my ECU is not listed at all in both KessV2 and K-Tag lists so I suppose my adventure is finished before to start. :roll: :cry:

There are three ways to make an Auto scan:
- Auto detect (CAN only)
- selecting chassis
- customized

Try all the ways for your engine (or any other unit) to be detected.

Auto detect

Select chassis

Customized

Remove the semi-colon, rename (example: Moby Dick🤦‍♂️🤣, Italian Job, or whatever you prefer) and write the addresses (your car addresses/units) in the same format that you see in the picture.
In this example I wrote the units of my 6R Moby Dick.

You will have to speak with experts in Magneti Marelli ECUs to tell you which tool can read and write your ECU, and most importantly, which is the Byte that must be modified to show the Gra_high in your MFD+.
There must be other VW models with similar ECUs (same family) that already have Gra_High activated so that experts :?: with their wonderful tools (2000-15000€) can tell you the exact Byte (in case it is possible for your ECU).
