      Funny thing about "OEM" and VW logos and part numbers... just because they're made in China (as the $25-$30 ones almost certainly are), doesn't meant they're not OEM or VW. Just depends for what...

      No, I really don't think that's it. In the parking light position, the first pull-stop on the switch turns on the front fog lights like it should on my wife's retrofitted 2.5 Jetta (or, in OP's...

      Looks pretty straightforward and in good shape -- though I wonder what the small black electronic bit with the "N" is. Resistor?

      No real reason to get the highline CECM for your front fog lights. There's a harness from ECS Tuning that allows you to install the fog lights without going through the CECM. Kind of the...

      It's working fine.

      There are two combined reasons why your car is doing what it's doing when the switch is in the parking light position: 1) you've don't (and won't) have front fog lights hooked...

      What procedure -- exactly -- did you follow to install the LED tail lights?

      I may be mistaken, but you'd need a VAG-COM in any case to re-code your computer so that it "knows" you have LED tail...

      Nope. If you have a GLI or GTI, then your bi-xenon bulbs (the ones with the round lenses, that act as both high beams and low beams) are D2S high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs.

      In that case,...

      The bulbs aren't "DRLs." They're low-beam bulbs. They just happen to also be used as DRLs (daytime running lights) on these cars.

      Assuming you've got a 2.5 Jetta or Rabbit, the "size" (actually...

      Yeah, and it's the only way I can think of to retrofit HIDs safely and effectively.

      I'm still on the original set of HID bulbs on my 2009 GLI. But when I do need to change them, I'll be dropping the front bumper skin, removing each headlight assembly, and getting to the bulbs that...

      I would say give them a try. I'm pretty confident that, while not even close to the GTI/GLI bi-xenon headlights, they'll be better than your stock reflector halogen headlights. Why? Because Helix...

      Good news for you is that they'll fit; and they're plug-and-play as far as the connectors and any coding.

      Bad news is, of course, that they're not "GTI headlights." That is, they're not bi-xenon,...
