Hi,

I am interested, but is there anyway for me to make it compatible with the Indian Polo 6R?


Many Thanks,
Sanket

I don't see any reason why it shouldn't fit your indian 6R.

Thank you, it was very thoughtful of you :). I would be lying if I say that thought didn't cross my mind while sharing it.

Hi iichel and Ciclo,

I am about to purchase the automatic headlight harness and the auto headlight switch from Patrik. Just wanted some help from you'll to understand if it would fit my car or if I would need to do some alteration to it, I know iichel has already confirmed that it shouldn't be an issue, but I have some more details to share regarding my 6R's hardware which weren't known to me prior to my initial query.

It's an MY21 model, Dec 2020 Production date.

VIN: MEXM20609MT11XXXX

Also, I have got the RLS sensor and Auto dimming mirror installed from the factory. Unfortunately, I don't have a VCDS cable with me to provide the log. :(

Many Thanks,
Sanket

Wiring compatibility:
- For 6R models with BCM Max from factory.

Your car does not meet this requirement

Would that adaptation be something that can be done by me after purchasing the existing loom ?

You could consider retrofitting a BCM max with all the effort that comes with that (wiring, coding)

Thank you iichel for clearing that.

Actually, I wouldn't mind taking that route and installing the BCM Max. Would there be any guide or reference to do that?

Yes, just search the 6R/6C forum for BCM max retrofit. There are a decent number of people who did it. Usually with guidance from ciclo but I'm unsure if he still provides wirings or support for these retrofits. It's quite labour intensive.

Thanks iichel,

I'll go through the BCM Max installation threads on the forum. And also check with Ciclo if he could spare a few minutes to guide me with BCM max wiring creation.


Thanks & Regards,
Sanket
