Ambient interior LED lighting

Post by attim » Sat Nov 26, 2016 3:58 pm

Hello,
i was trying to find interior light with LEDs for ambient lighting which fits in Polo GTI but unable to find any.
It's something like in Golf:

Does anybody know if there is a direct replacement with LED from different VAG car ?

Hi ciclo. No, it's not as easy as just google it ... GTI has different version of interior light in black color (it should be 6Q0947105)

So basically I'm looking for this with LED or a replacement from different car (could have different look, but same shape)

Okay, so it's just like my R-line dome lights.

According ETKA there are three 6R/6C dome lights versions, the only one that is compatible with ambient lighting is the one I linked above... from VW Passat W8.

However if you find OEM dome lights with ambient lighting for us please let me know. Thanks in advance. Maybe this miracle occurs... I never give up. :lol:

Lets do this,

We can drill the holes, 3dprinted the mounting, use the oem led, connect to the right power supply. I'm planning for this.

Drill? It is a delicate process.
Keep in mind that the important thing is that the result and final appearance end up being perfect. (It is a very visible area)

There are some guides (DIY) online with different results as to the final appearance. :lol:

Its a very small hole just for a small light distribution needed. I think it can be done. Hurm. Will look into it once i free. Most importantly. I need to understand the power/amp requirements for such lighting. Normally, ambient lighting shud be able to adjust the brightness right? Is it possible with the 7e0 bcm?

Yes, but only those :arrow: with MFA+

In the place where I have to live on December 28 is similar to April 1

You will have to install a Dimmer for your purposes.
