Lupo Cambridge lamps - 2 different types

9 posts in this topic

Hi Guys!

I have small problem with my Lupo Cambridge rear lights. As you can see I have two different lamps... Could you tell me what OEM number has lighter and darker one? Unfortunately I do not have any sticker with VW part number :/ 

I'm looking for one piece to get perfect a*s :)

Of course I would like to know OEM number of this darker... Cambridge lamps are hard to get in Poland :/ 

 

Thanks a lot!

I have these orange filters in both lamps... There is difference in plastic... 

One is lighter and one is darker ;/ I also saw 2 different types of lamps in my city on two different cars 

Please see attached pics.

As i'm lead to believe, the darker reversing lamp is an indicator of the presence of water :/

Lamp is dry inside. I had one set which was leaking and had the same color. Only one lamp then had a fault

There are so many vdubs with mixed shade rear lenses out there. The worst are usually mk4 golfs. I have a theory that it has something to do with UV in sunlight. I think the older they get, the lighter they become. I know vintage car people always keep talking about it.
