    BCM needs to be replaced with 5Q0 937 084 DD, this would also facilitate other retrofits. honestly I am not completely sure, as there is no way to tell from the part number, but the higher BCM for your VIN is DD, and that's always the HIGH, the most complete. if you want to know if yours supports the fog lights, take it out and look if the relative pin is present.

    light switch is 5G0 941 431 BD WZU, without any doubt. same I retrofitted (I lacked the AUTO position).

    steering wheel is 5G0 419 091 GE, has the cruise control buttons and the paddle shifters.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm pretty sure the BCM swap is not a straight forward one. Any suggestions? Have you personally done a BCM upgrade?

    The light switch seems like the one I already have, I thought I required the LDS with "Auto" on top and the "OFF" position on the left side.

    Any recommendation on a seller, I can see lots on ebay but cant tell between genuine and counterfeit.

    of course I upgraded my BCM, the MID one I had from stock did not support heated seats. if you search the forum there was another guy retrofitting heated seats and I walked him through the BCM swap process step by step. you'll need a session with a dealer.

    not sure what you're saying about the LDS, if it's like the picture you posted then it lacks the front fogs and you need to replace it with the part I said.

    I don't have a favorite seller, I always bought parts around europe where it was cheapest. the majority comes from wrecked cars so I wouldn't worry about being non-genuine.

    about the steering wheel, I gave you THE part number for your VIN but the same steering wheel exists across different years with different part numbers. just find one that has the buttons you want and the paddle shifters, it will work.

    Hello darkchina811,

    Sorry to disturb you.... Would you be in a position to assist me with the fog lamp coding?

    I did search online but could only find for the older generation BCMs, those with long coding, whereas in my car's BCM, the long coding is all "zeros" and everything is in the adaptation channels. Please assist me with the static cornering coding as well.

    TIA,

    Nitin

    no problem, but since my BCM is also the old-style coding, I never researched much on the new generation. I am sure somebody will chime in soon.

    anyways, did you replace it already? that was fast :P

    No Its still the same. I'm trying to see if it has the required pins.

    I did come across a site where someone had fog lamps on the VW Golf mk7 with the same BCM. So I'm assuming it may not require an upgrade. However, when it comes to coding, the long coding only displays all "zeros" and left everything to adaptation channels.

    if that guy has fogs then yes, BCM is good for fogs. he also published adaptation maps so compare his to yours with WinMerge.

    I think fog lights in german are called Nebellichts.

    Quick Update:

    I've purchased the fog lamp kits, wiring harness & the switch. I'm now ordering the steering, which is when I notices some have the button "CNL" while others have the icon for ACC. Are these the same? Would there be any version difference due to this?

    Thanks and regards,

    Nitin

    the difference is between regular cruise control (CNL button) versus ACC (little car symbol). buy accordingly to your car's equipment.

    Hi,

    I've finally got my steering delivered



    It matches my existing steering and vehicle configuration.

    I've also purchased the front fog lamp kit for my golf mk7.5. My car came factory fitted with the rear fog lights.

    The kit came with the fog light units and wiring kit. I ordered the LDS separately, which has also arrived. Its today that I realised the wiring kit that came along is not the correct one as it came with a relay and connections to the battery. Guess this must be for a non-OEM installation.



    Would you know the part code for the correct wiring for the Golf MK7.5 wiring? I came across these, will these work?: https://www.cars-equipment.com/en/sh...g/#prettyPhoto

    I would also be interested in understanding the wiring a bit more. I'm aware the leads from each fog lamp unit should be connected to Pin 45 (for LHS) and Pin 5 (RHS) of the BCM. Shouldn't there be a connection from the LDS to the BCM as well or is it already taken care of, because I've already got rear fogs installed?

    I tried posting the images but somehow its not appearing here

    Many thanks!
