      There was a recall in the US, which expired I think in February 2013 (voluntary recalls usually have an expiration date).

      Presumably there would some sort of light or stored code but when my 4Mo kicks in the tires rarely spin, since power is being distributed all over the place, on the fly and as needed. Not getting...

      Just FYI The OEM ones you get in the US come from Mexico. Viva la quality :thumbup:

      And let's not forget you can always tell. It's a cheap, wannabe look.

      Maybe the switch itself is bad? I know you said you didn't think so but perhaps the switch itself is throwing the implausible signal and the wrong signals to the car.

      Yes, thank God, we get more time to save up for it with our VR6.

      That's the OEM one, but does the aluminum aftermarket one fit the VR6 models? According to the website it does not.

      After playing with ECS' tool for like 10 minutes I finally found one VW it fits: the MKV Jetta.

      Does not technically fit any B6 Passat, according to the site. Did you install it? Make...

      You might check the battery out. Probably time to replace anyway.

      Rough starting can indicate a carbon cleaning is required at that mileage is my guess.

      Mine gets flakey too sometimes.

      One of your buttons might be different from mine (might not be the Night button on yours), but try a hard reboot if you can:

      Press and hold for a few seconds and...

      Correct, color temp has nothing to do with heat, just light color and thus light output -- you won't get nearly as much output at the normal 35 watts from a 6000K xenon bulb as with 4150K (OEM) or...

      That totally sucks...maybe call VWOA again...sometimes it all depends on who you get on the other end.

      This was a voluntary recall on VW's part, as opposed to a government-mandated safety recall. Unfortunately, voluntary recalls can and do expire.

      FWIW VCDS also works with 64-bit Windows. Definitely worth a purchase if keeping the car long term. And I agree, sounds like a ballast issue.

      They're parking lights when your headlights are on. Regulations in the US (at least) require parking lights to be amber or white. In the newest Passat, they double as turn signals, which have to be...

      I get the rattling too for a second or three and I have the VR6, but a chain like yours...totally normal. Don't know about the WOO you're hearing though.
