      You'd also need additional LED modules, which run about $150 each. If you're upgrading to Golf R, you'd need different AFS motors as well, which run $200 each.

      part number search says its something to do with the rear hatch. Referred to as "stop buffer." #16 in the picture:

      They are the same part number. The F version is the old version that has been replaced by the newer G version. Both work fine on the headlights.

      Yes, you need to buy the Golf R specific ones. The GTI AFS motors do not swap over (at least they didn't for me) and since the Golf R's have additional LEDs (second DRL and turn signals) an...

      He's talking about the actual parts on the bumper, which are all removable on the OEM bumper. The lower grill, the lower grill blades, the splitter.

      If you have the LP, you need 2 more LED ballasts and 2 more AFS motors. You probably also need a new grille as the accents will not match/line up.

      Remove bumper -> remove lights -> swap ballasts,...

      Wiggle it? I just went out and tried it, not sure what to tell you, it pulls right out with minimal effort (but to be fair, I do work out a lot. Maybe you need to focus on arm days).

      But maybe...

      Pulls off. It's a standard H7 plug. Pull it off, then go after the hex screw.

      When I did mine, I removed the black plug first and then unscrewed one of the hex screws about halfway and it came right out. Took 2 minutes.

      The problem with relying on the ride height sensor when you lower the car is the car thinks the nose is higher than it is. It only accounts for the drop in the rear and doesn't account for the drop...

      To be fair, if he told them he needs an alignment because he got the car lowered (which seems to be the case), they are making the correct call. If I didn't have the proper equipment to adjust the...

      You should have them adjusted in VCDS if you've been lowered, but there would be no need to adjust them if you've only had an alignment. If the car doesn't know it's lowered, it doesn't know its new...

      I don't really know, as insurance paid for it. I was looking into it before my accident and was told anywhere from $300-600.

      Initial estimate was something like $9100 and it went up once we tore...

      Did you replace the AFS motor to the new one?

      I'm currently throwing no faults, even with no new coding, but I was before I added the correct AFS motor and extra ballast. Once I got the correct...

      As long as your insurance approves it, yes. I was told that Safelite (my glass shop) had to order it from the dealership anyway, so unless your glass shop gets it direct from the source, its...

      If you can, I'd just go with the dealership once OEM glass is approved. I'm wishing I would have done that in the first place.

      Alright, I've almost got the swap completed. I have full functionality in one of the head lights, but one of the LED ballasts I ordered was incorrect so as soon as I get the correct one of those I...

      I'm *still* waiting for new glass. I've been given an install date of Friday, but been told it could be pushed back. :banghead:
