    Found a site selling the exact same kit, Heres the link, this is the video they provided showing what it does. The example car is an Audi but I cant imagine its anything different. This effect can be done though coding for free if you have OBD11 which makes these adapters a bit of a waste of money if you ask me.

    The sweaping like on the first posts can only be achieved with HW changes, since the taillight does not have individual LEDs and therefore cannot be coded, like they do in Audi cars.
    As mentioned, the type of result like in the second video can be achieved through coding, although not with same timing.
    Either way, and to be honest, all these "dynamic" blinkers have become so common in many cars that it starts to be more original to not mod, but that is just my opinion and we each should do what we wish to our cars - hail for variety :)

    So can it be done with these adapters or not would you say? I really want to get it done on mine so I’ll do whatever it takes so long as it doesn’t cost too much!

    It depends what you count as "dynamic". The proper Audi dynamic ones "sweep" as each individual LED light comes on. On the Leon (and the Audi A3 in the video above) is just 2 light segments. I'm not sure I'd call that dynamic...

    But I have the Cupra 300 and the lights are different to that shown on the Audi in the video.

    Does look a bit wank that does. Is that how it will be with one of those adapters then ?

    Yes thats definitely how it will look with the adapters. There's no easy way to get the Audi sweep without paying big bucks for the modded tail lights.

    The traditional sweeping effect is achieved by the use of single leds in the indicators, unfortunately the facelift leon albeit integrated only has a single led strip light split into the 2 light segments hence why it can't be achieved. If you were to buy aftermarket taillights (if they exist) with this as a feature them insure the adaptors would work but going to be mega bucks is imagine.

    The Swedish ones are the only ones I've seen, you'll just have to email them to order one

    I think the standard LED's look fine tbh. I'm glad Seat didn't jump on the Audi bandwagon and copy the sweeping lights.

    The correct working sweeping lights with individual LED’s would be a nice addition but as @davidstarkey11 says.. the std ones look fine.

    No the mod was crap. It’s like the other videos shown above. It’s not a sweeping effect, the original facelift blinker imo is better.

    Hi guys,

    just got my Copra 290hp dsg7 on Thursday and I had already ordered these. As previously stated the result is not exactly as discribed. It would be much more honest to discribe those as SEMI-dynamic as they do with kits for other models. Anyway...since I spent the 100 euro I will keep them for now and if I feel like it I will go back to factory look. It takes less than 15'.

    Greetings from Greece

    Totally. It’s not the same effect.

    You can achieve a sweeping indicator effect but requires having to goto these specialists who have retrofitted an alternative LED indicator strip. Just depends how much cash you have to burn to get the desired effect I suppose.

    Dunno if you can retrofit it yourself but would be an interesting conversation
