Surprisingly, the new 2010 Polo (6R) has utilised quite a number of Mark IV Golf older technologies.This includes the older style of headlight switch that carries the full electrical current load of the various lights, the same as the Mark IV version does.
The 6R Polo has a rather attractive "brushed alloy" effect headlight switch with the latest style larger ergometric operating knob. It is the same shade of black as the Mark IV version as well.
Note that the "brushed alloy" effect is only plastic and not real alloy like the other dash trims on the .:R32.
Additionally, the Parking Light symbol is backlit green like the other newer VW switches.
Unfortunately, if you have a Rear Foglight fitted, the emblem in the switch still does NOT light up and relies on the Rear Foglight Warning Light in the cluster. This newer switch is greatly redesigned on the circuit board and it would be extremely difficult to add a Rear Foglight LED warning inside the switch like you can on our older switches.
This item operates in the same manner as the popular "Euro Switch" conversion and is absolutely plug & play in the Mark IV.:R32.
