My understanding is that the (lozenge shaped) LED DLRs are only standard fit on the SEL and R-Line T-Rocs in the UK. Strange that a dealer is saying otherwise...

That’s not the dealer - that’s VW’s UK twitter account clearly stating that.

That makes it worse - leads me to believe there have been configuration changes (there’s a “new trim” flash on the models page of the vw site) I can’t even see the option to add the running lights as an extra on the SE - only mention is for the LED headlights. However, the dealer site still states the SE has “LED running lights” as standard too!

So confused right now.

I'm getting a SE next week and it has LED DRL's. VW don't appear to have explained very well in the above 'chat'. On the S and SE the DRL'S are a straight line of LED's across the 'fake' air intake each side in the bumper with separate indicator immediately above. SEL and R-lines have the oval(ish) LED DRL's that surround the 'fake' air intake (changing from white to yellow for indicators).
Hope that explains. So yes, VW reply is correct - all T-Roc's get LED DRL's.

I can fully agree with RedRoc. All T-Roc's in all trims come with LED running lights. But the shape of the LED DRL's are different in different trims. In lower trims they are in a straight line, and in higer trims they are honeycomb shaped. Of course, you can add honeycomb shaped LED DRL's in lower trims as an option with the LED main lights.

Thanks guys - I see why the confusion is there then.

However the Design Demo I took for a test drive had the “honeycomb” lights and the extras to have them added aren’t really clear as they only refer to the headlights...I do think there has been a change of trim in the interim. Hey ho!

The additional option of LED headlights is described as "also includes desperate signature led DRLs". I ordered them with my design trim model.

Yes, that is correct. If you choose these option you will get signature LED running lights (''honeycomb'' shaped). And as much as I know you can't add only the signature LED running lights without the LED headlights.

Thanks - but my point still remains though - VW haven’t been very clear about this.
