MY18 Indicators

Can any owners or has anyone seen how the indicators work, I've seen the higher spec velars have the Audi style dynamic indicators so when I read this in the brochure for the MY18 Range I was hoping we would get it too;

" The Matrix LED headlights also feature front and rear Animated Directional Indicators which illuminate with a distinctive sweeping pattern. " 2018 SVR on order

One of the videos on the website showcases them. They sort of sweep from one dide to the other, not sure if it’s on all trims. You can also turn them off too.

All these little tweaks are really bringing the MY18 front and centre into the modern world.

Audi were always way ahead with their light systems but now with these new features - they have competition ! SVR (MY15.5)

They are not animated the same as Audi ones are, it would more than likely need some sort of module to enable this.

I think those that retrofit will be unable to get the animated indicators as these are chosen via a settings on the speedo screen - you can choose to have them normal flicking or animated and this won't be an option on those retrofitting to older cars.

Exactly so a bit of a pointless cost to lose one of the most dynamic featues. Current

I can appreciate that the 2018 rear lights are a stylish upgrade and can be enjoyed in that all important look back as one walks away from the car. However, why pine for a feature, ie the animation, that you as a driver cannot see and therefore get any possible 'feel good' factor from?

Am I alone in the view that Audi style animated indicators are one of the most annoying features ever imposed on the rest of the driving public? 2017 SDV6 Autobiography; Carpathian Grey, Ivory, Soft Close, Extended Grand Black.

I’ve had a few Audi’s and the dynamic indicators are not only more than a style que they are probably one of the most effective indicators on the market especially at night. They serve a proper function and this is why the majority of manufacturers of cars and lorries are now replicating this style. Current
