I looked into this when I made the mistake of buying the se . it’s easy enough to fit the lights but when I was looking at the connectors they looked a little different so didn’t want to risk it incase they can’t be coded properly just wasn’t worth the hassle

In other posts where people have asked for recommendations between the models I have always said that I would not go for the SE for many reasons but mainly due to the halogen lights, the extra cost of the SEL is worth it for LEDs lighting system alone. I am sure manufacturers make it harder to retrofit.

Yes unluckily I fell for it , I asked for led lights then was told not an option on se no idea why if willing to pay extra and no idea why halogen on a car so expensive either

I would have a problem buying any car that did not have LED headlights, having now had 3 Skodas with them.

I'm starting to think that about the virtual cockpit, it's really rather good.
