    My MK8 was delivered with 5H0035816C in last December (built early November). The only acceptable option is 5H0035816D for me
    We will see how it goes

    They are different hardware with different software. Yours has the 16xx sw while the 816D has the 17xx-18xx software. Also the infotainment unit wasn't the only thing changed with build week 48.
    They would have to change the different control units also. I know of 5 units that have changed: Front Assist, Side Assist, Gateway, Park Assist, Online connectivity unit.

    That's interesting. Do you know the hardware versions of those controllers?

    Also, do you have any idea why bw48 brought these changes? It's not a MY change over. Why did they do it?

    So... replaced the MMI unit to another 816C but the software on that is 1666 again, they are not allowed to replace this to 816D.
    The keyless entry issue came back, also produced issues at the service workshop. They suggested to collect again the diagnostic logs and get some help from the engineering but it needs some days again...
    After 5 days I had to get back my car so we agreed to test it for a few weeks and when they will have an available courtesy car then we can do a second round with that issue. I will let you know how it goes. My hope is at least the infotainment issues are fixed with the replaced part.

    For those on software 1664 / 1666 / 1668 there are reports that a new update 1670 is available.

    This can only be done by a dealer and they will not do the update unless the car has software problems.

    As mine is exhibiting no faults on 1668 I'll be happy to stick with that.

    Checked my map version today and it’s now on 21.3. Last time I looked (beginning of April) it was on 21.2. Funny thing is, it hasn’t notified me of any software updates available for download in that time and it hasn’t been anywhere near a dealer.

    Wonder if it updates map software autonomously?

I was blaming the kids for leaving the light on, but no, it is a fault.
    I took the golf to VW and they updated the software and changed the light fitting. Golf back within 48 hours. No warnings on the 30min drive home, hope that has sorted the problems!
    The back light pulsing on and off is happening me too! I thought I was going insane! When you brought it in and they changed the fitting was it okay after that?

    Iíve been scouring forums trying to find someone with the same issue.

    The light was fine after they changed the fitting, yes. I think we aren't the only ones with this problem on the golf 8, and the dealer changed it straight away no queries.
