      2012 VW CC
      09-04-2011 11:00 PM #26
      Guys,
      can someone confirm for me if this will or will not work with the 2012 CC?

      http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VW-GO...#ht_4752wt_954

      ECS sells a slightly different part number, but i think the difference is only the country of origin.
      Ebay is made in CN while ECS in Mexico.

      Obviously 40$ price difference is the reason im asking.
      If you have a tip to a different site i can purchase from would be much appreciated.

      TIA.

      I am still working on getting fogs and rear fogs for the 2012 Sports...not much luck as of late. Tried a lot of testing and got nothing good except the factory wiring schematic is NOT exact or near what the car is..

      I was wondering though..on the Vagcom for the 2012 R-Lines, the bit that is used for front fogs installed is not checked yet the fogs work on just the R-lines models...I am wondering if there is some type of factory relay needed since the actual wiring for the fogs is connected to the cornering lights on the 2012 Sport models. Maybe it switches between fogs/cornering lights via the Euro switch?

      I would say ECS Tuning is the best place. they have all the euro switches and the jump wire as well.

      I can confirm that the switch listed in the ebay link above will work, that is the same part number that I have installed in mine. Got my switch from Vaglink.com about 6 months ago now.

      Although the 2012 have wiring changed from the 2011, I would bet that the 2012 Sports would need an extra relay similar to how I had to wire my 2011 Sport.

      Check the link in my signature for the install thread I did for my 11 Sport.

      Checked your link and got all the parts to do the mod before I realized the wiring was different. Everything works except the relay...don't need it but something is missing since the front fogs enable in Vagcom only turn on the cornering lights in the Sport models

      I wish I could find a way to figure that out for sure...Again, all I know is that the coding for the 2012 R-Lines with factory fogs does not have the front fogs installed bit checked but yet it still works as well as the cornering lights.

      Thanks. Vaglink.com is just a bunch of links to VW parts websites. Do you know exactly who you bought it from?

      ECS only charged me 10.00 for UPS GRND. I prefer UPS and will pay for it cause USPS is crap. they have the right Euro switch for 59.95, cheaper than anywhere i have found

      I think you have the price wrong...

      http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/3C8941431AXSH/

      But you are correct, $5 cheaper. I don't understand their shipping policies, as they seem to be hit and miss, for me they are always a total rip off. But to each their own...

      The price is right. your link is for the "A". the "B" is the supplier version. It has all the functions it's just cheaper. Here is the link to that:

      http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/5ND941431a/ --- the "A" version on ECS' site does not have the Auto function.



      the "B" version you linked has the Auto function


      To further complicate things.... ECS gives the different supplier a different part number.

      3C8 941 431AXSH = OEM Chrome with coming home with Fr/Rr Fogs (in VAG-packaging).

      3C8 941 431QXSH = OEM Chrome with Fr/Rr Fogs (in VAG packaging).

      Their aftermarket equivalent starts with 5ND 941 431 (a or b)

      there are many versions on the ECS website. The A and B versions I was referring to are exactly the same in function just not price. The A is 74.95 and the B is 54.95.

      here is the identical A link.

      Yea, in the 2011 the Fog lights in VagCom control the Cornering lights as well. That is why an additional relay was needed to turn the fogs on when you pull the switch out.
