hello everybody, on my 2018 V40 I noticed an empty socket for a w5w lamp on the headlight.
I think until my 2014-15 they were standard, but I ve never seen newer models with those. Does anyone know if that socket is wired? if yes, a vida update is needed?

It might be a regional thing, different countries have differing standards for lighting. It is cheaper to make one or two lamp clusters and wire it for the bulbs required by that region rather than make a different one for every market.

Yeah, my previous D2 MY13 had them, my current T5 MY16 doesn't. Shame, they look cool.
