      When you did your coil-overs, do you recall retaining any of the existing OEM components? I got the 034 strut mounts, but do I still need to keep, or replace my bushings, bearings, strut bearing nut,...

      Interesting. Never had such an experience with my 98, 06 or 2012 Beetles. Maybe also an environmental thing.

      Like, in all my years I have never experienced the issue of headlamps fogging on any...

      Don't know about that. Have you seen the plastics used in other cars. Makes VW look like the cream-of-the-crop.

      I have owned VW for over 15 years now.

      From what I've heard John, they should be relatively easy. I have the OEM. But the process should be simple and similar. Open hood. Quarter-turn of screw on each headlamp assembly releases. Then...

      Yeah... the paint was a lot of work, and over a few days (with coats).

      I believe I purchased the same kit as you. It included the primer and paint. If you see my earlier posting, you will see first coat(s) were primer. I even ended up doing it twice (taking...

      Um... No.
      There are no bulbs there. They are LEDs and do not replace. You will need to replace the entire headlamp assembly.
