And I don't dare to get those tail lamps as of now!! But yeah, I am planning for those smoked head lights stocked by the same vendor you mentioned.
We need to convert the LHD Euro tail lamps to Right Hand Drive (RHD) for use in India. If we fit them as is, then rear fog light will engage while reversing and vice versa. (I haven't checked if Indian Polos have rear fog light?)
Anyway this is the procedure:
You have to rip out the lens for the fog light (pliers work quite nice!) and then get a red bulb to replace the fog light on the other side. So rip the red lens out of the left tail light and put the clear reversing bulb in and put a red fog light bulb in the right tail light (or you can leave it if you don't intend to use the fog light).
On the plugs there is one wire on the bottom that either controls the fog or reverse light.
Take the left tail light for example the plug has a pin empty at the bottom. De-pin the pin just above the empty spot ad put it in the empty spot.
With the right light it's the same but in reverse. The plug has a free pin 2nd from the bottom. De pin the bottom pin and move it up to the empty spot. That's if. If you don't do this you won't have reverse or fog lights. Everything else if fine though and will work out of the box.
My parcel has been marked as shipped. Will post pics of the procedure if I successfully manage to mod.
