If you’re a Volkswagen owner, then chances are good that you have more than just your Volkswagen vehicle. People are passionate about their VWs, which means hats, t-shirts, even books are probably right up your alley. That’s before you start customizing and modifying your favourite ride. So we’ve found XX of the best accessories for Volkswagens and Volkswagen owners.

LED Cupholder Mats

Cupholders, good ones at least, are the most boring part of any car. So why not brighten up your VW’s with these LED-lit VW-logo cup holder coaster mats. They’re waterproof mats that sit inside your cup holder. So you can always see a VW logo when you look inside. A vibration sensor in the mat turns on the LED lights when it detects, well, vibration. Then the mat lights up to give you a pretty sweet effect in your cup holder. Light up your water bottle, or just illuminate your travel mug. They’re USB-rechargeable so you don’t need to hardwire and you can even use them on your desk at home.

Original-Style Fog Lights

Maybe when you bought your pride and joy, you missed the option for fog lights. Or they weren’t available. Or maybe after a few years and a few curbs, dents, and brushes, you’re in need of some new replacements for the factory parts. Check out these Ledin OEM-style fog lights. These ones are for the 2010-2014 Volkswagen Golf and Jetta SportWagen, but the company has applications to fit other models. They come with 9006-size light bulbs, which are more like an extra set of low beams than a typical fog light bulb. There’s also a factory-style wiring harness, and if your car wasn’t originally equipped with fog lights you get a switch to activate these new ones.
