Hmm.. if you swapped the pin for the outer brakes with the outer parker, and then wired the inners to the new brake pin, maybe you could get the quad rings to have the brake function? Add some playing around with VCDS and you could probably get the parker wire to not light up, then you'd have quad rings and quad rings only for both parker and brake, with the centre never lighting up. If all goes according to plan...

I'm happy with what I have though, it's different and not a complete rip-off of a Skyline - each to their own.

I was going to mod mine the same :)
Unfortunately on Saturday I left my tailgate open with the reversing light on.
1 hour later and the inside of the light had all melted into a glob and damaged the clear lens. :(

Put the orig R32 inners back in.
Actually looks OK .

Now I'm a member of the quad ring club.
Huge thanks to buckets for his stellar work in modifying my inner rings & to DkN for his excellent DIY. I did the exact same thing for my wiring - totally hidden & reversible. Thank you very much gentlemen .

Nah, can't be bothered, I'm happy with the look I have at present. Just enough different from both the Skyline and the stock Jetta.

Buckets is definitely a legend.

A legend being, "a romanticized or popularized myth of modern times"

In person it DID look better. Not sure if they have been installed yet though. Maybe Gareth can shed some light on that for us... Are they in yet Gareth? And if so, we all want pics please!!
